    The sidelights got leds and often the left (n/s) stops working,,, i put normal 501 bulbs in both and does the same. I swapped over sides and does same to same side!! Am thinking headlight issue or wiring on the unit itself??

    As for the rear, being an estate, i need new bulb holders and need 4, at 4.80 each at stealers!! Ebay 4.18 plus 2.20 p&p!! Which means buying from stealers!! To stop light error warnings!!

    Safeguard to sort out now then?? :-(

    You can disable them with the right software. Need to have a think which setting it is.

    Safeguard warning indicates a fault in the alarm system. Being an estate it's most likely to be the rear window break glass sensors. There are dozens and dozens of posts on this subject as it's very common. You can remove the trim round the windows and bypass the wiring to the glass sensors. If it's not that, then it could be the ultrasonic sensors in front of the interior light. Unplug them, clean up the connector and see if that cures it. Try setting the alarm with the ultrasonics disabled (press the button on the dash then get out and lock the doors). If that sets without the warning message, then you know it's the sensors or their wiring at fault. If cleaning the connector doesn't work, fit a new ultrasonic module - there's always plenty going on eBay and on here. Other possible causes are a faulty or unplugged siren or door/bonnet switch or blown fuses.

    Why do you need new bulb holders? Have you tried giving them a good clean with a soft copper brush? Or very fine emery cloth.

    Do you mean "can remove the warning from the CID/GID/TID screen" or the dash?

    Just pressing say the BC button on the radio temporarily removes the message from the screen but it comes back after a short while.
    On full canbus cars pressing the left hand roller in on the steering wheel stops the message on the screen until you next get a fault (bulb warning can sometimes be intermittant) or restart the car.

    Does this help?

    Funnily enough I too keep getting the lightbulb out sign on the dash, but it goes out and then normally comes on intermitently, but I can't find a bulb out??

    I have an Estate too, although I didn't get the SAFEGUARD message, but my alarm kept going off, I simply followed the advice of removing Fuse 23 from the rear fues board, which as far as I was told, simply removes the rear windows from the alarm system, but doesn't disable the alarm completely and it's cured my alarm going off, much easier than messing about with connections/trims and if someone breaks the rear glass, the ultrasonics will detect it anyway.

    Not sure what you mean about the bulb holders becasue it's an estate??? I have had to remove the tailgate trim to replace a bulb once, but never changed the bulb holder, is there a common fault with the estate bulb holders???

    The slippery condition warning on the infotainment screen is a pain when it drops below 3 degress, took me ages to work out which buttone was OK

    I know the click on big knob or bc or steering left scroll click removes message :-)

    The estate bulb holders (tailgate door lights) have them holders that u screw onto the mount of light cluster, is prone to failure. It sometimes come on, sometimes as if bulb is broke.

    The contacts on holder is a thin metal. I will buy 4 and use any good ones as spare on dud holder. The left reverse is a dud. Means no wiring is there so acts as a spare bulb and holder area.
