2003 1.4 amber indicator bulbs - Clanger
HJ's column in Saturday's Telegraph mentions potential MoT failure when the amber paint flakes off 581 PY21w indicator bulbs. If your indicators are looking a little anaemic and you hate waste, I can tell you that a coat of Tamiya X-26 clear orange will repair these bulbs to my MoT man's satisfaction. The paint has remained in good nick for 3 years on Mrs H's car, as long as the original. The exercise also gives one a useful reminder of how to access and replace said bulbs.
