Default Reverse light drama

I got a 2ltr touring edn and am having a pain!! The reverse light stopped working for no reason ! Now i have checked bulb, fuse and switch on gear box all are working ok, i have power to the bulb socket when in reverse but the bulb just isn't coming on ! Any ideas as to why or is there a relay that i'm not testing in the loom ??

Hi. you say you checked the bulb,but have you used another? as its weird that you have power to the socket. in any case if its the same as mine its as useful as a chocolate teapot with the red lens fitted as standard, and the only clear ones seem to come from the U.S.A and cost a fortune.

If you have power to bulb socket when in reverse, then that rules out a relay - and leaves only the socket itself and the bulb. I have had filaments in bulbs that are broken, but swing and connect and work at times - like old flashlights that you'd bang in your hand to get working....
