Re: Front windscreen

Nice one!

My only comment would be to suggest that next time(!) the camera is rotated 90 degrees (ie landscape).

Anyone know which bulb fits into the HRW switch? Mine has been missing for the 8 years I have owned the car and I would like to fit one.

Cheers

Try Revotec who do such an item, fitting instructions below.

After possibly getting your hopes up, I have checked all my air filters - I have plenty of the Stromberg type, but unfortunately no HS4 types. I did sell two sets last year as I don't have a car that uses them, but these must have been the last ones I had . Sorry!
