    Interior boot light not working

    Hey guys, recently noticed my boot light is not lighting up when I open the boot.

    I have taken out the light and looked at the bulb the filament is still intact (pics attached) so not sure if bulb is blown, b4 I start buying bulbs does anyone know what fuses it is for the boot light (see pics attached)

    Any help would be great.

    I think they are called "festoon" bulbs.

    Your old bulb should be stamped with the wattage you need so just search on that.

    No idea on the fuses I'm afraid Click here to enlarge

    No not if you are replacing with a normal bulb.

    I think you just need to worry about that if you upgrading to led bulb...something to with them confuses the car, although I think you get can bus compatible led bulbs.

    Not worth the hassle tho imo

    I think the bulbs blown. You can upgrade it but honestly is hassle as Vauxhallís have to be canvas free otherwise it could interfere with the car. I had to replace the fuse in mine but I canít remember what fuse it is sorry.

    bulb is 42mm festoon for future reference. I would reccomend the LED ones too, much brighter!
