Jim, do you still want some more from me next month?

Found out it was the pin socket not.connecting correctly or at least that cured.the issue
I think Lee has a possible answer there.
A loose connection on one pin would cause a heat build up and could lead to a blown lamp, or worse still a small fire. It's worth checking if you need to change a lamp or Halogen filament lamp.

I fear it was just Sod's Law in action... I've never touched the left outer unit and the connector and incoming wires were fine, with no signs of burning.

Yes Mike, the lamp was indeed blooming at the top so I guess the vacuum had been lost over a short time.

And yes, again, to any spares you have! :D

OK, I'll endeavour to bring a bagfull. Both types or just dip/main?

I'm sure 'blooming' wasn't the only word you used to describe the blown ones!

At least our cars don't BSOD. Our modern car has a radio (for want of a better word as it also plays CDs, DVDs, MP3s and has a built it in satnav) that is based on Windows Mobile. If I was to put that into the 2000, I'd have the best of everything. Lucas electricals and Microsoft software. What could possibly go wrong?

No problem. You just stop at the side of the road, give it the 3-fingered salute, reboot and carry on. That's what we do with our PCs after all...
