2011 Mk3 Rear Brake Lights bulb?
« on: July 11, 2015, 02:21:45 PM »
Hello, my brake bulb has blown and after looking through the Owners Books for Bulb Specs I can not find it listed anywhere, all I can find is one section that says "

Tail and Brake Lamp: Note: These are not serviceable items, please consult your dealer if they fail. >:(

Now on my old Mk3 (2007) it was a simple bulb out and new bulb in job...

If anyone could shed some light on which bulbs I need, I would be grateful, thanks.

Are the later models running LEDs instead of conventional bulbs for the stop/tail lamps?
