    Default Parking light bulb warning keeps coming on and off

    I keep getting a warning on the dash saying the parking light bulb has gone. Thenn after a little while it will go off.

    I had a look at the bulb and it looked a bit dull when on so gave it a wiggle and it went brighter.

    Is it common to have to replace the bulb holder on the estates?

    Seen this on ebay so might see what happens: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2509239602...=p5197.c0.m619
    £5.50 seems a tad expensive for such a small part.

    you can carefully prise the contact spring to ensure a better contact, also some contact cleaner, or just scratch it with a small screwdriver.
    Maybe the bulb is on the way out!

    Update: It turns out its not the rear bulb that its complaining about but the drivers front sidelight. It keeps going off. Then it'll be ok for a few days then it will start switching on/off. I have just had the front drivers headlamp unit replaced as the old one kept filling with water.

    I am hoping it's just the connector is not on tight (from when it was replaced) or the bulbs are on their way out.

    Ref the bulb warning. Double check that all the rear lights are lit in the same places - as the vec will use another bulb in a slightly different area for the rear brake and tail lights should one fail.
