Advice on side indicator

Post by szhrr5cc »

Hello All,

Can someone advise how to change the bulb on the side indicator bulb on a BX? Does it simply pop out of the wing?

Car is a St Tropex we rescued from the side of a house where it had sat for years, now cleaned up and back on the road.

Hello and welcome; the indicator simply rotates I think 1/8 of a turn, and pulls out.

It is quite easy, the picture shows the reason behind rotating the light. In the correct position the cutouts allow you to gently pull the light and connector away from the wing. 😉

Prefer it to the Lamborghini, like Signor Gandini!
