    Default 5 bulbs in headlight

    Just a quickie, was replacing the bulbs in the headlights and there appears to be one not used - just wondering why it's there?

    Looking into O/S headlamp (from top)-

    Indicator
    Unknown 55w H7 bulb
    Main beam
    (going right..)
    Full beam and sidelight bulbs

    This unknown H7 55w bulb never comes on, why's it there and what is/was it's intended use?

    Puzzling.
    A pic from the front and from the rear of the light unit would be good.

    What year is the car? Mine (04 year) only has 4 bulbs and all do something.....

    Not sure what AFL setup is mate but I wouldn't have thought so, car is 03 plate but built 2002 when Vec B was still on sale, it appears they have used whatever was in the parts bin left over from the B's, half can-bus etc. Saying that I can programme keys for one push deadlock and window close etc.

    Will get pics up possibly tomorrow, the bulbs in question have a black multi plug with three wires going to them. Will remove battery and air filter housing to get a better cam view.

    That's the parking light - lights up the way you're turning or indicating if you're stationary - handy for dark lanes and such. Only fitetd with AFL though so not sure what this is all about...
