Mystery bulb identification!

Post by Tjdaveyuk » Mon Apr 15, 2019 9:58 pm

Hey all, I’m new here, this is my first post. Hopefully it’s in the right section.

I just bought a 2001 Bongo Aero Friendee. One of the internal rear lights doesn’t work and the bulb was missing when I checked. Does anybody know which bulb I’d need to buy to replace it? Image link below

Also unrelated, electric blinds don’t run on the leisure battery. Only when the ignition is half on, normal? :shock:

Looks like a 'Festoon' bulb: ... KgEALw_wcB

Just measure the length and pop into your local car shop.

As for leisure battery wiring... Anyone's guess. All depends how the installer wired it up.

Bear in mind you can operate the blinds manualy. Just raise and lower gently by hand, no harm will be done. :wink:

The various lamps are listed on the pages here, check the dates as lamps changed in later versions.
It sounds like you don't have a SWAP loom fitted on the LB to switch the internal lights, radio ancillary sockets and blinds to use the LB. These are available for the Bongo.

It's worth getting a reasonable LED for those lights. I'd suggest a warm white rather than a very bright one ( which tend to have a cooler light temperature )
