    MOT for our Nuevo shortly. The top centre lamp on the rear has blown. It's a long thin red stop light and I'm blowed if I can figure out how to get into it to change the bulb
    Obvious way is to prise the end off but not sure if that's the correct way and if it will end up breaking.
    No access from inside the van, cupboards in the way.
    Solutions greatfully received

    If you get no joy might be worth giving Autosleepers or dealers a ring. Autosleepers used to be very helpful don't know if they still are in answering questions over the phone when I had one of their vans.

    I thought these were LED lights .. don't usually blow .. but maybe not .. in any case, have you checked inside the cupboard , maybe a wire has been snagged or a connector broken ?

    Would this light be covered by the MOT or is it only the 2 normal brake lights. I am sure someone here will know. If not the solution may not be so urgent.

    From the MOT guide http://www.ukmot.com/1-3.asp#Text_top

    Any additional stop lamps fitted must be tested.

    Unless you tell them you have switched it off!

    That's what the tester at my MOT garage told me at the last MOT on the Merc:thumb::thumb:
