Actually, since that post I did buy some bulbs from Maplin's but when I took the unit out, I put an AVO meter across the posts and found the old ones were ok. I put everything together again (using the old bulbs as had been), put everything back in place and they now work fine. Ether moves in mysterious ways, I guess.

If like me you have managed to loose the all important bit of plastic then you can replace it by using the end of a small cable tie and a blob of strong glue (I used Araldite).

To do this you will need to insert the keycard which will support the cable tie until the glue has dried. Make sure that you wrap the keycard in some paper as shown in the picture so that any excess glue sticks to the paper and not the keycard. The cable tie will need to be glued with the bump upper most as shown in the picture. NOTE: This is the opposite way around to the original bit of plastic.

After the glue had dried I found that the card operated the switch but was rather stiff due to the bump on the end of the cable tie being a little too big compared to the original plastic piece. I melted the bump down a little using the tip of a soldering iron but you can improvise by using a flat bladed screwdriver heated up by a blowtorch or kitchen cooker. Sorry the second photo is not very clear but you should be able to make out that the bump is now flatter and wider.

So far so good, the repair is still going srtong (famous last words!)

I had lost the plastic too, so found a strip of 1mm plastic around the house and then just doubled it up on the end but I think the cable tie idea is good with the tip melted down slightly. I only used superglue instead of araldite and it appears to be ok.
thanks for the info this site is saving me loads of money, done the aircon light display fix as well
