    Hello All,

    I've just noticed my brake lights aren't working but the one above the spare wheel is. The rear side lights aren't working either. Everything else seems to be fine. It did rain heavily overnight if thats any help and they seemed to work okay yesterday.

    Many thanks.

    Cheers

    I haven't yet it's to dark now. Would they both go at once? I've never known two to blow at the same time, but it is a Freelander.

    Always rule out the simplest (cheapest!) option first! :cool:

    just a thought have you tried the earth wires as i had the same problem with my series2 88" inch landrover.
    and that was the problem with my brake lights.

    Right then, how the F**k do you get the rusty old screws out. They are just crumbling when I try to unscrew them!

    I assume that you are using a torx head to try and get the screws out? A normal phillips will wreck them...
