All because FIAT can't spare a extra two inches of wire to allow you to make sure the bulbs inserted into the holder....

What an afternoon, said to Jodie at 3 back in 5 mins just fixing DRL....

Three hours later (though that did involve a lot of trying to get it out without the bumper off)

A stick with something sticky or magnetic on the end would have sorted it out.

Doh! So annoying. I'd be cursing myself (and the car) if it were me. Feel for you : /
