Hey guys!

Wasn't sure if this should come under brakes or lights but hoping someone can help.

Some one at work noticed that my driver side brake light wasn't coming on and a week later the passenger side. They were coming on as side lights but not as brake lights. After some confusion over bulbs I got a pair of 501 bulbs and fitted them but the issue persists. They come on as side lights but don't get any brighter when I brake. The central spoiler light comes on. Horn still works (same fuse I believe).

Any ideas?

Cheers.

Didn't think they could be upside down and from the look of things, the ones I removed were not dual-filament and neither are these.

The facelift models do not have brakelights on the boot lid, they are only tail lights.
Brake lights are not W5W-T10-501 but W20W5 or dual filament T20.


Cheers, I thought I was going mad after I checked mine and found no brake lights in the boot lid perspex. Just saw a pre facelift on the motorway and noticed there's did... Also, I didn't have to post a new thread because I searched for an answer ;)

Why would you want to put a dual filament bulb in place of a single filament in the first place? :confused:

Was sold the wrong bulb at the shop, with a little research on here and a bit of head scratching all was sorted eventually ?
