Unhappy "RB5" Brake Light Bulb. Need Help!

Hi Everyone:

Back about a month ago or so, I make a purchase for the Prodrive RB5 spoiler. I am totally satisfield with the beautiful wing, however; one of my brake light bulb when out on me. I took the bake light apart and remove one of the light bulb to show you what I need. I need about 3-4 of these bulbs. Do you know where I can find these type of bulb for my RB5?

Please reply very so

Thank you very much,
"AliasAngel"

These folks should be able to help you out

Failing that, it is probably something you can get out of the Radio Shack catalog or website (probably not in the stores).

Arrow Replying to Nick Dickitt

Hey Nick dickitt:
The RB5 has a 8"-9" inclined. The wing is not totally flat you know? Inclined from front to back. The lowest point is 8" and the highest point is 9" inches of course. Say, why do you need this information may I ask? If you worry about seeing the rear miror. Well, you won't be able to see vehicle from the distance 1/4 mile alway from you. The wing is created for rally spec. I find some problem looking at my rear mirror sometime... however, when time goes by.. you will get use to it. The Version 5 and V6 wing is very high. It is so high that you can see the rear mirror no problem because it is over the distance of your view point.
If you would like to see my RB5.. go to this link.

I have a question about the RB5 wing. Can you give me a measurement from trunk lid to bottom of the wing? I ahve been looking at getting this wing and would like that info before I purchase. Do you have any pictures of your car with the wing installed? Good Luck in your search. Try www.autobulbdepot.com they are very knowledgable and probably can give you a better idea if they do not carry them.

Hey Peter,

You might want to try Rat Shack, or even Autozone or the like.

Hey! I recognize that BRP Scooby in the background!

Guys, The RB5 brake light is a Hella unit normaly found in the ~95 VW gulf top wing.

Go to a VW parts store and you should find it easy, just don't say its for a RB5 wing or you'll see the guy do a face as he scratches his head!

Remember just take the bulb and say it's for the 3rd brake light of the 95 VW golf/GTI.

Good Luck!

Leo

Nice spoiler! :P
Now I can see one on with different color than mine

Maybe once you found a replacement you can let me know where exactly I can find replacement bulbs too? Mine isn't out yet, but never hurts to have backup handy.

Thanks!

Hi Bratman: Hang in there... you will get your RB5 soon enough. (^_^)

Hello Bensonwrx: You speak Cantonese too? Sweet! Me too! Yes, I am from HK as well. I see we have the same taste of choice in spoiler. Well, if I do find the bulb, I will let you know here. Come back and check this forum from time to time as I doing my search now.

Yo Wedge: Those places you mention... no luck. Yes, that car in the background is yours that's why you recongize it. Hahaha~ Just playing with you dude.

What's up Leonardo: Really? VW GTi/golf 3rd brake light? 3rd brake light means the center brake light right? Just making sure. Thank you Leonardo... do you know where I can go for this brake light? What about the VW dealership??

AliasAngel,
Thanks
And well, glad to see another i-clubber from HK. You are wrong, though, because not just the RB5 we are having the same taste on, but so are Anime + Chinese Movies

Now tell me our sexes are different

Yup, any VW dealer should. You can also try PepBoys and look for that light bulb replacement.

Good luck!

PS, reminds me about my RS sedan! for those that don't remember, I had a white RS sedan with that wing. Thats how I know about the VW compatibility, since it's a Hella unit for VW, I was looking for the whole thing in smoke or clear in Europe.

Smile thank you all.

Thanks to all:

I finally got the RB5 brake bulb that I had been looking for. I got them at Auto Discount store. I can't believe they actually have them. Well... actually... they don't really have the same matching one, however; they carry something that is very very very close to the RB5 brake bulb.

The band is:
LIGHTING TECHNOLOGIES
Instrument/ Courtesy 74
12 Volts
Part No. LT74

The packaging is paper backing with the color of a gradient black to orange.

Finally, the search is over. For those who in need of looking for this bulb... I can provide a scan pic if you need one. Just PM me~

Thank for all of your help~

Cheers,
AliasAngel
