Drove to work today fine however in my way home my right indicator decided to speed up double the speed of the left. This also means when I have my hazards on the right one goes faster then the left. Considerabley Sad please someone tell me it's an easy fix Sad

Sounds like a bulb is out somewhere Li. Stick the Hazards on and check around the car.

As Dave and Phil have said, it'll just be a bulb that's gone Smile

Hope this is for your year MINI Li .......

1) Opened the access panel
2) Unscrewed the 10 mm hex nut holding in the brake light assembly
3) Detached the cable harness, pressed in the retaining springs and removed the assembly
4) Squeezed the clips to remove the bulb board (holding 3 bulbs) from the lens cover
5) Removed the brake bulb from the board (press in and rotate ~ 45 degrees)

Installation is the opposite of removal.

A note for those with BMW MINI white units.. the bulbs are soldered into the holder Rolling Eyes

As Jack said pop into a Halford to get a bulb, I don't supose you have one and I don't......

Not sure what one you need but they should be able to tell you as they will have a chart...

Just be careful when flashing right as anyone following won't know if the bulbs failed..
