Brava Rear break light strip.

I have 3 or 4 bulbs gone in my break light strip. I just took it off and it seems that you can only buy the whole strip.

I got a price of 21.67 (inc VAT) from Desira Bury. Has anyone got a better price?

Can i get a discount as a BOO member (in the post Nige) anywhere?

Dill.

Yes, you must buy the whole strip...

Maybe you should to look for a second hand piece in a car-wrecker...

I broke the whole rear break light some months ago [xx(] ... For a second hand one in a car-wrecker I have paid less than half price [^] ...

the bulb strip can be a bit pricey, if you're getting one from a breaker, make sure all the bulbs work. I fitted LEDs into mine. longer life

Definitely go for one from a scrapyard. A fiver should cover it.

Re: Brava Rear break light strip.

Re: Brava Rear break light strip.

Fix it!

Carefully cut the strip open - replace bulbs with red LEDs, use insulated copper wire to connect them (instead of factory metal strips), put back together and seal with silicone. Will last longer than new.

Re: Brava Rear break light strip.

Yup replace the led's, if you get one out a scrap yard how'd you know all the led's work, until you get it home plug it in etc. I have one that works 100% but it was replaced 3 yrs ago.
