Just thought id let you know about something i found out on my car when i had it in for a service.

Webcode is probably fully aware of this one.

Basically if one of your front indicators appears to have stopped working dont swap the bulb out straight away. \the indicator will start flashing as normal for 2 flashes then flash like a bitch ..... well like one of those clapped out cars you see.

There is a known issue where the housing dosent sit correctly and seems to move a little. There is a arc of some nature when the bulb flashes but when the housing is out of position it dosent make this connection.

I would recommend taking the car into the dealer if you get this as the housing is a known issue and is covered under warranty. The guys at london west said they wee several of these in a week.

Had mine done at Dixon Renault Barnsley a couple of weeks ago.

Replaced the screw in indicator portion and it's been fine since (touch wood).

I live in Huddersfield mate but I work at Tankersley.

Harratts in Wakey are the biggest set of [email protected] on the planet so Dixon Barnsley seemed a logical place to go.

Have a history with em really and never had any probs. Bought 2 cars from new from them (Phase 2 meg coupe and a Clio Dynamique) as I used to live in Monk Bretton. Both of which were good experiences.

Used them twice in the last year for service/warranty bits. Some nob scratched my CC and they have a while u wait repair (similar to chips away) service and the work was spot on.

Also did the indicator while I waited in my lunch hour.

Yep it is a common problem..

The old fix was to replace the complete headlight unit, but now there is a modified indicator bulb socket that will be fitted..

mad indicators

mine has just started doing it, looks like a trip to the dealer, was going anyway to get the under seat wire sorted for the airbag light thingy.
Is it just my eyes, or are there 2 bulbs in the indicator?
