    Default 355 flasher lamp ...

    Stepped out of the car yesterday and noticed that the glass on the right hand side flasher lamp (the circular lights that are low down on the front bumper) had shattered I suppose a stone chip hit it ...

    I was surprised when I saw the thinkness of the glass... its like wine glass !!! Of course it will break.. being that close to the road...

    The bulb, and the housing etc.. is perfectly intact and the light works... but i suppose.. I have to get a new lamp unit right ?? lots of ???

    or can I just replace the glass ? maybe call a glazier

    How to prevent this happening again ? This must be fairly common.. given the thickness of the glass and how close to the road it is.... maybe apply some kind of film on it...

    How do I get the lamp unit out ?

    There was a generous offer on some protection film for these very lights recently from one of the Club Sponsors.

    I really should get round to fitting mine or sods law will dictate I get a broken one and have the protection still off the car !!!!
