2011 Giulietta QV daytime running lights
« on: November 23, 2020, 02:55:24 PM »
Hi guys,
I looked at a 2011 GQV on the weekend, and the mechanic who had it (holding it for the owner), had just replaced an engine mount, and also told me that the daytime running lights aren't working.
He suggested replacing the whole headlight, or just not using them. Are they an item required for a roadworthy certificate?

Can the LED's be replaced without the need to replace the whole headlight?
Where can I buy replacements?

Cheers Rob

You need to replace the whole headlight if it is the LED assembly itself that has failed.

Thanks guys. Seems it was a setting in the menu.
Car was nice to drive, but sketchy service history, which I won't accept. No documented services between 43K and 90K, and the door vinyl door inserts on the front doors were coming away.
All in all and ok car, but Im very particular about me cars.
Cheers
