Managed to break one of the wires coming from the bulb. I think the wire is all integral to the bulb so rather than repairing the wire (it's broken in a really difficult place to fix) I need a new bulb. Halfords job? anyone replaced a bulb like this before?

Thanks,

James.

It may be a case of having to change the connector. I think I remember the wires were bare when I got them, so it depends what was pit on when fitted. But your right. All the ones to buy have the flat spade connector. Nothings easy what it comes to cars!!

Shouldn't be a problem matching it up.

Automotive bulbs all come in standardised types.
