Full Version: Brake Light Bulbs

Hi all,like most people i like to have spare bulbs with me so i looked at my bulb kit from my old car. most are ok but not the stop & tail bulb. on my 09 focus 1.6tdi eocteh they are red bulbs as the lenes are clear. so went to halfords, no joy. the same at my local car parts shop, no joy there. so to ebay! i got 2 for £3.95 but when i got them the pins on the side of the bulbs were not off set like the ford ones, they will go with a bit of force and work but not ideal. but i bet ford would be more than £3.95 for two.
Oh you can post more often, I love it when peeps supply photo's with the post :)

I wouldn't advise forcing them in because you could easily damage the holder.

Your handbook should tell you the type. The pins are offset so you cannot fit a clear bulb (which only come with opposing pins). Red bulbs are avalable with offset pins for standard fit (scuh as your Focus) and opposing pins for aftermarket clear light units.
tanktop - you got Catch's seal of approval - that is always a good thing ;) im sure this will come in useful for others later down the line!
