Both Sidelights Dead even with new bulbs


Recommended Posts


both of my sidelights died on my Arosa the other day. I have bought replacements and installed them but still no luck. Checked fuses they’re all good, everything else that should light up does, apart from the front sidelights and I have no idea why.


has anyone else come across this issue before?

Many thanks :)

Mine are same on my arosa too but not had time to look into it.

What I've seen a few times on vdubs, not just Lupos- is the bulbs can get wet and there's an electrolytic reaction between the socket contacts and the bulb pins/wires. Have yiu tried scraping the contacts clean and lubing with loads of silicone grease?
