Want to replace my rear indicator bulbs for the clear lens. According to the book at the shop the rear bulbs are 581. I can't find a clear pair that have 180 degree pins, they all seem to be offset. Even the ones uve found on eBay. Any ideas? Maybe I have just been searching for the wrong term online but struggling ton find them

Sounds like you basically want an amber version of a 382. Have you thought about fitting silver ones to avoid the fried egg look if you are having clear lenses?

Ok so it's the 382 I want? That will teach me not to look at the reference sheet in halfords anymore. Clear or chrome ones are what I've been searching for but only found the 581 offset.

Will search again on eBay now. Definitely don't want the fried egg look, changed my fronts to chrome a while back and makes a big difference!

I had the same problem after fitting clear lenses.

The orange lamps with 180 pins fit with a bit of a push and work perfectly.

I thought the first one was a bit stiff, and only noticed on the second one.

Brawn beats brains, for a change T:
