Clubman running lights bulb gone.

Post by logburner on Mon Dec 14, 2015 9:00 pm

Hi All,
Just a quick question.........Clubman 1993...bulb most likely gone on high front running light, cover does not have  screws......does it just prise off ?  scratch head
Don't want to bust it, and if it does just prise off, may well warm it up a bit with a heat gun, so it doesn't just crumble in my hand.  think_smiley_46

All suggestions for safe removal gladly accepted.......     Ian.

Hi Logburner, my Clubman is just a year younger than yours and the running lights have on two of the edges, a small 'slot' that you can use to lever the lens off with a screwdiver.  It just needs a gentle twist to remove them.  Hope that helps and that you enjoy your Clubman as much as we enjoy ours.

Recently replaced the lamps on my Clubman with l.e.d. lamps as the original lamps continually let moisture in which corroded the bulb holders away easy enough job to do the worst bit was getting into the locker and joining the wires but they certainly look better than the old ones.
