I decided today as I have a bit of time on y hands to get round to replacing the bulb that has blown behind the heater controls (Punto Mk 2).
I have now got the blown bulb out, but I can't find any reference in the handbook to what bulb I need to get as a replacement (I suppose as it's not really a normal consumer replacement as it's very fiddly to get at). It looks like a push in Christmas tree light! None of my replacement bulb kits have such a bulb. Does anybody know what it is and if they are easy to get hold of or is a trip to a Fiat dealership required?
