Hi!

In the rear (boot) left side the relay detecting broken bulbs is placed. This relay often wear out due to moisture and the bulbwarning comes on.

Yours probably dryed up.

Hi!

I have the feeling that spareparts are hard to get in EU??

In sweden we have

www.biltema.se

and

www.micro.se

Try reservdelar or bil to find the sortiment. Swedish prices (1 Sek = 9.5 EU)

If the prices are good myaby i can do your order and send it abroad.
