Default Funny Story

During a routine trip to the grocery store, I noticed my right signal flashing quickly which is a sign a bulb is out. Digressing a bit, I've owned my PT since July of 2012 putting just 13,000 myself. I've only had to replace a rear bulb once(#3157), all 6 bulbs on the outside rear are the same. For most of my fellow PT'ers this should be a breeze to replace. After removing just one bottom bolt, sliding the brake light is easy. With the engine running, turn signals on I found out it wasn't the bulb after all, but the harness that hold the bulb. One of the two metal clips that hold the bulb in place broke. Obviously, I did not have a spare handy. I marked the connectors keeping direction the same(not that it mattered). Thusly, I had to hot wire the broken lead, by passing the connector all together with some spare 24 gauge wire. Bottom line, until I can get the proper replacement harness, this will suffice.

Yes! Love this zen and the art of 'tao the road' getting.
I once got myself some 20 miles 'tao the road' to home on my motorcycle. A rubber band DIY fix of the discovered reason for my 'not-run" condition; ignition switch power wire solder failure.

What's even funnier is you have Nikki Minaj as your signature. Are you president of her fan club or what the deal? No espere que el anillo de bronce en la vida. Si te gusta tu trabajo, no volverás a trabajar un día en tu vida. Supongo que tendrás una traducción. Cuatro años de español más de treinta años en Agosto. Adios

Not sure what you said. But far as Nikki goes. Somebody has to go for the skanks. May as well be Busa.
