Side Mirror Turn Signal

I hoped this bit of roadside debris would yield a shiny new amber LED and driver:

Car mirror - shattered housing

Car mirror – shattered housing

But, alas, it uses an ordinary WY5W incandescent bulb:

Car mirror - turn signal

Car mirror – turn signal

That whole assembly seems to be the replaceable unit, as the lens is firmly snapped-and-glued to the housing. The white shell used to hold the wires, but those vanished when the collision ripped the mirror off the car.

After I pried off the shattered lens and extracted the bulb, I found a broken filament.

Ah, well, now we won’t be riding through plastic shards along the shoulder.
