Inspection and Taillight Bulbs at 24,524 Miles
Today, the CLA got all new rear bulbs. The warning system alerted that the back up lights were bad and that the brake lights were bad. I replaced all except the orange bulbs which I could not easily find in a parts store.
There are felt caps at the rear of the trunk inner liner that easily pull off and reveal the rear of the lighting assembly. Pinch the tangs and yank on the plug and the assembly pops right out. Undo the plug and remove the lighting assembly and replace bulbs. Reinstall in reverse order.
It also got an annual New York State inspection and passed.
On the agenda is to replace the Group 48 AGM battery and auxiliary battery as these are almost five years old and weary. It needs new windshield wipers, a new serpentine belt and a greasing of the front engine pulleys. I'll get to these as the autumn progresses.
It's an amazing automobile given its power and economy! And I find the suspension to be totally excellent despite reports to the contrary.
