Light Bulbs
« on: December 22, 2017, 07:14:48 PM »
I am looking for a place on line to purchase stock light bulbs for my Mio 50. The manual i have doesn't give any part numbers.
I am also looking for a place to purchase an ignition switch at a reasonable price.

I appreciate the help.

Remember when you asked for a really 😎 🎄🎁 and received a pair of socks...?

Enjoy these comfy socks...

Although the Service Manual doesn't specify bulb numbers either, it does offer clues to make some educated guesses...

Taillight/Brakelight... '1157' bet the farm (but not my farm🐔🐖🐄) Push the bulb in (spring-loaded socket) and turn to the left to remove

Turn signal bulbs... Enjoy this video https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=vIZdGhava0M and break out the ruler/measuring tape...because the semi-clear photos in the Service Manual suggest a 'Wedge Base' type of bulb... You determine the size with your measurement. These bulbs just pull straight out to remove. You'll notice in the Service Manual the front turn signal bulbs are in a socket you must remove first..turn the socket to the left..and you can see these bulbs are amber

Here's your Service Manual http://scooterunderground.ca/knowledge/manuals/documents/SYM_Mio50_Service_manual_000.pdf

Chapter 16 is where you'll see how to gain access to your bulbs (and what Wattages you should be looking to replace the old ones with)

The Ignition Switch is going to be a dealer only type of part, unless you get lucky and find one on eBay, etc...

Remove your bulbs and hand them to the dude at your local auto parts store...😜

Ho-Ho-Ho... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=fPPCPqDINEk 🎄🎁☃🎶

Your lights should a number printed on the bulb itself.
