Dash back in with hrw/rear wash/wipe/fog lights switches in but no bulbs. Can anyone tell me what these should be and if Halfords might have them?

Can’t remember the exact number for the bulb but what I would say is to get them working as mine once failed an MOT because the rear fog light telltail bulb in the switch wasn’t working.

Feking rediculous but them’s the rules apparently :cigar:

It's the same bulb as the heater slide illumination, you could rob that one.

As usual Halfords were a waste of time and bought a couple of packets of small cap less but they were too big so ordered a box from your supplier Alan...cheers...

Suggest LED bulbs, but brighter than the bulbs.
I got some from Jaycar, not sure if you have them in the UK.
