    Eek very weird issue with indicator

    Folks, here's my story.

    About 2 months ago, I left MOT centre in Cookstown (I like to go to different ones each time). Tried to turn left. Put on the indicators (I like to indicate, and like it when others do too) - and all I've heard was the very quick tick, and message on the screen saying that front indicator light bulb said good-bye.

    Fast forward about a week, I left my car with Ballyroberts in newtownabbey (West of Belfast). Sat there for half a day, waiting for them to get some time to fix it (I'm a freelancer, so I can work anywhere with the laptop - garage is good as any place). Was told, they managed to finally fix it.
    Good job I thought, they relieved me of £32 . Cheap.

    Fast forward a month, I get the same issue again. Decided to have a look myself this time.

    Took off the bumper (surpassingly easy), took out the bulb - it was fine!. Bit of a w-t-f, scratched my head, set my tongue in the right angle - and thought I'll have a look inside the headlamp case.

    Here's what I found:

    To the right top of the hole is the wee surprise.

    Question one - how do I tackle it, short of replacing the head lamp casing ?

    And guess what ballyroberts geniuses charged me £32 for. The insert that goes into it, housing the bulb has two pins sticking out. They bent one of them, to make better contact. That's it, didn't tell me anything about this issue

    Looks like some one has tried to put the bulb holder in the wrong way iv done this to 2 of my lights in the past and snapped the full fitment inside the light so i ended up soldering the wires to the bulb holder.
