Removing Rear Light

5 posts in this topic

Ok one of my indicator bulbs has blown in the rear lights.

Ive pulled off the 2 screws holding in the unit but it wont come off the car. The Manual says to undo the wingnut, but I see no wing nut! Does this mean I have to remove the interior panel in the boot!?

Thanks

Yes, you have to remove the interior panel (this goes better when you also remove the bottom cover).

It's a plastic wingnut wich is now under tension when you first removed the 2 screws, so fasten the 2 screws again to relieve the tension on the wingnut.

When you reassemble, first the srews, then the wingnut.
