Default Re: Brake light gone now indicator stopped working.

Quick update. Managed to establish that it was the holders at fault and not earth or sockets by taking nearside holders and plugging into offside sockets. These both worked so this led me to deduce the offside holders being the problem. After cleaning contacts on indicator holder and applying petroleum jelly, this now works again. With the tail/brake light holder I did the same but now only the tail light is working (I have tried with a few bulbs to make sure it is deffo not the bulb). Have now found and ordered the relevant Ford part (6 + postage) so will fit the new holder on arrival and report back with hopefully good news.

This is my first proper experience of the 'niggles' you get with being a Freelander owner - sure it wont be the last! I can only assume that the indicator connection was disturbed whilst I was checking the brake light, either that or was just coincidental timing. Cheers for all the pointers guys.

Excellent news!!! But believe me it's not just freelanders that suffer with taillight issues!!!! Most vehicles do at some point in there life..... It's usually down to the alloy casting used to make the bulb holder/circuit that react's with the metal on the bulb/bulb's causing a bad connection.

All resolved. Replacement parts working fine. Only downside was that the original indicator holder used a bulb with offset pins, new one needed straight pins. Couple of extra quid later and normal service is resumed.
