PostSubject: Brighter side lights when indicating   Wed Oct 18, 2017 12:57 pm

Afternoon All,

I noticed the other day (for the first time ever) that the side lights get brighter when indicating. ONly on the side that is indicating. Is this a design feature, or something idiosyncratic with my beast?

Answers on a postcard to this address.

Cheers,

Rich

These are 'turn' lamps and perfectly normal. The side light at the front is actually a twin 5/21W bulb for that reason.

From your photo it looks like you have the same lamps as me.

Next to the outer side of the headlamp is a combined side/turn/indicator lens. The orange indicator is at the bottom and is a small T10 bulb.
Behind the big clear part is (or should be!!) a 5/21w twin filament bulb that usually is just the 5w sidelamp.

When you turn the steering in the direction the 21w bit should also light up.

Had another look yes there is a 21w lamp comes on when turning with indecater on but does not flash maybe more to doe with iluminating that side of road rather than indecating live and learn .

I think it's there to help parking - to light up the area you're turning into - so it should be useful in the winter Smile

I figured it was for safety, others see you turning.
I like the feature either way
