It was one of those stonking huge fuses the size of the tins of little fuses.PB doesn't carry spare fuses? I have 4 little tins of fuses in my GPs glove box. And two spare lugnuts.
:lol: Sorry, but if one of my tail lights would be burned out, it's just a clip which is holding the light assembly in place so it's not a few minutes but a few seconds to change them.I found out that one of my tail lights was burned out, but with a couple dollars at the parts store and few minutes with a socket wrench, everything is good to go again.
I didn't need a wrench to change a bulb ever, but skoda supposedly find it funny to put the fuse box 1 cm in front of the clip-on cover. And in the Opel there was no other way but to unplug the ECUIt seems pretty normal to need a wrench
It's just a different design, with my car there's 3 bolts holding the assembly to the body which need to be removed so you can take it off and then change out any burned bulbs. The whole job is less than 2 minutes start to finish.:lol: Sorry, but if one of my tail lights would be burned out, it's just a clip which is holding the light assembly in place so it's not a few minutes but a few seconds to change them.
Regarding the current ongoings: I like that over here in Germany the emissions test is now part of the the general inspection (every two years) so you can't forget one if you do the other. My car is due in September and I don't have the slightest worry it won't pass.
You look at it that way, I look it as not forcing a working single mother of two to spend money she already doesn't have. I have seen some utter death traps out on the road, including some post crash cars that went down the road crooked, but I can understand the situation the driver very well might be in.You call that crap, I call it "forcing idiots to keep their cars roadworthy".
It was not my intention nor did I want to get a debate started on this topic, so lets just let it go.When that same single mother of two aquaplanes into a tree because she's driving a death trap on bald tyres and has no idea about it, it might not be considered 'crap'.
