Need help in getting to the off-side rear light cluster to replace an indicator bulb.

Any help appreciated as most of my driving is in the early morning and late evening - thanks...

is it not just unclip the rear carpet surround, then upclip the rear cluster?
ish
Thanks Martin,

No, the rear light cluster goes up to the top of the rear pillar.
However, I worked it out - there are two access points/removable panels. One is 'carpet type material' about 6 inches up from the floor - that's why I couldn't see it! The other looks like a 'speaker grille' near the top of the pillar. Remove these to get at two 'thumb nuts' and watch out for the sharp edges - not a lot of access space. Undo those and lift/pull out the light cluster from the outside.

Access to the bulbs in now possible.

Re-assembly is the reverse - push the light cluster back into position, re-install the 'thumb nuts' taking care not to drop them, then re-install the 'trim'.

Took about 5 minutes...

Thanks again...

my bad, glad you worked it out ;-)

Hi Martin, Your bad??? Not at all.

At least now there's a procedure for others to follow.

Now, I've just had to do a left front headlight bulb!! Had to dismantle the front of the car... almost. And it's different to the Mondeo 02 plate I had previously.

Ford don't make these little jobs easy for us, do they?
