12v. clubman lights.

Post by mobileone on Mon Mar 06, 2017 3:13 pm

I have to replace 12v. lighting tubes on interior lights of my 2003 Clubman.Can anyone advise whether this will be a straightforward job?The double tubed units seem to be sealed,although I have not looked at them too closely yet,which I will do after advice from one of our many helpful experts.Ta Mike.

They are certainly not sealed. Depends on the design whether you simply squeeze the defuser to remove or lever off with small screwdriver blade in one end.

Yes, just remove the plastic covers and replace the tubes. I think I levered mine off with a screwdriver - carefully!

Two main sources of rattles around Clubman cooker: (1) shelves (and contents such as grill pan): wrap / wedge using plenty of bubble wrap; (2) the stainless steel folding guard above the hob: use a tea-towel laid over the COLD hob, and between each leaf of the folded surrounding guard.

Yes, just put padding round everything, bubble wrap is effective. Roger
