Number Plate Bulb
« on: 21 December 2023, 17:01:38 »

Never had to replace one on an Omega, but how do you access the number plate bulb please?

Maybe simples I know, but at the moment I cannot see how and the way I am means I want things to be easy!!! :o :o

Well, I did what I shouldn't do at the moment and laid on the floor and found the clip to release the bulb unit, before getting into the inner part where the bulb was.  Bulb changed, so another thing off the list before the MOT in January. :y

To think the Vx dealer wanted 27 to do that! :o :o

Yes, and I am very grateful for all that guidance, even when it is a simple matter of changing a bulb, but after surgery.  It really helps  8) 8) 8) :y

My MOT tester failed me for a Dip beam bulb a few years ago, he fitted me one and when the Test bill came in I asked about the bulb as ther was no charge.  all I got was see you this time next year. :y :y
