    Blown bulb

    My rear indicator light has blown. Just wondering if I should take it in to my dealership to replace the bulb or go to Halfords, as they do a fitting service. This is the first time in 10 years of being a Motability customer that I've had a blown bulb.

    Any advice I would appreciate.

    We had a rear bulb go in our last car and went into the dealer to see who should change it. They changed it straight away at no cost and only took 10 mins. Our car is a Citroen.

    Went to dealership today, turns out the rear light cluster was filled with water. They have to order another light cluster. They put in a new bulb so the indicator will work for a bit. Will get it refitted on Wednesday or Thursday.
