Do your indicators or rear lights have faults? Does a bulb need to be replaced? Are your fog lights not working or are your stop lights simply inoperative? Do your vehicles bulbs keep blowing?
Pentagon Motorist Centre in Chatham near Rochester in Medway are fitting bulbs all the time and are based in the centre of Medway close to Chatham town centre.
The most common headlamp bulb is two bulbs in one or “double filament”. One filament provides a beam of light directed towards the kerb (dipped beam) so drivers coming the other way are not blinded by oncoming headlights.
The driver can switch to the circuit which powers the main beam filament should the driver want to see far ahead and no-one is coming the other way.
The brake lights are switched on automatically when the driver operates the brake pedal. The brake light switch allows current to flow to the brake lights and back to earth by completing a circuit.
Many Indicator bulbs today are orange in colour and flash orange when the indicator is switched to on. After a few years of continuous use a common fault with this type of bulb is that the orange coating over the paint burns off and instead of seeing an amber light the indicator begins to shine white. This is a reason for a vehicle to fail its MOT and is usually a simple repair.

This generally allows for a speedy repair to be carried out and helps to avoid delays to getting your vehicle through the MOT test. On many occasions we only charge for the price of the bulb.
