    The drivers side rear bulbs keep blowing! I probably get a week then one by one they all blow!

    Could this be a loose connection perhaps or something else! Only happens on the drivers side.

    Thanks.

    Could it be a loose connection on the plug that connects to the bulb holder - the wires can overheat and short..

    I've had another look at this, seem to be the cheap halfords bulbs that keep blowing! I'm going to buy better quality bulbs if they exist, could anyone recommend any?

    i would be surprised if its the actual bulb as halfords sell so many it wouldn't worth the hassle of annoying hundreds of customers over a product that costs 60p.
