Many thanks it was the 21w capless as you said, problem sorted for 1.99

Why do the book say I need to go to the dealer

Right now my next problem with this nightmare of a car is a xeon headlight bulb not working, had a scan around this site and it looks like the brake light was the least of my worrys.

Can any one help, I striped down to the bulb and there was a high voltage warning sticker, so I wisly stopped, also can not find replacement bulbs for this on line to

HI Riggers - Xenon lamps are known as discharge lamps and need a high voltage ballast to get the gas inside to ignite. It is advisable to leave them switched off for at least an half-hour before working at them as the ballst needs to be able to discharge. Unfortunately Xenon bulbs ain't cheap - have a look at the link below - they quoted me 65 for a bulb. I suggest you check out the fuses and wiring connections first.
