Hi.

The problem I have is that I think some water got into my front right indicator on my 08 Exige. It corroded the little metal tab on the bottom and when I tried changing the bulb the metal thing broke, so now I can only connect to 1 terminal and thus it doesn't work. Any ideas on what I can do or where I can get a replacement part. Im based in South Africa and Lotus here cannot help me. Thanks

Resurrecting old thread

Dorman 85830 GM dual filament socket , listed 76-84, but 98 S10 got me started

5 minutes with an X Acto knife, a few crimp terminals and you are done.

There are 3 tabs that lock it into place in the housing, slightly asymmetric such that it will only go in one way, this part needs one of them trimmed down, and a tiny tab removed to fit.
The tiny tab is at ~9 o'clock, and I think the one above it is what I trimmed down, but it is pretty easy to figure out.

[Edit] basically the Lotus part is one fat tab and two skinny and the GM is two fat and one skinny, and I bet if the single element can be found it may just pop in
