My van has just failed the mot:blg
It failed on rear number plate lamps not illuminating and a broken rear spring

Soooooooooo.....................................

Does anyone have a std rear spring?

Also I have checked all the fuses and they seem to be fine!!

What else could cause both number plate lamps to fail?

HELP!

:( I can't help with the spring, and don't shoot me down, but are the 'bulbs' good? They may have failed together and you did'nt notice?T:

Hi
If the bulbs and fuses are ok, there's a good chance the cable is broken inside the grommet where it goes into the rear door.
Hope this helps

Hi,
Check the bulb holders, they are prone to corrosion. The holder is specific to the T4 and not cheap. In the past I have taken a Golf/Passat/Polo etc bulb holders apart and used the internal contacts inside the T4 holders. job done.

Cheers Trev.
