How do you remove the lights? Ours will probably be similar?


Easy mate just get on your knees, stick your arm under your bumper around the back of the light unit n feel for this tab

Give it a squeeze n push the light unit out as you do. Simple ;)

Sorry mate just realized the tabs are different on the 2.5 unit but still works the same, there's a tab either side of the unit which you will still be able to feel, squeeze em both in toward the middle of the unit n push it out ;)

Sound mate. You should be easily able to go by feel from sticking your arm underneath, it's all I do. If you really have to just put something on the ground n get on your back under the car to stick your head under lol like when I wired the second reverse light.

Lol why weren't it pleasant mate? How much water was in it?

Just get the 20quid none genuine ford unit I linked, it looks exactly the same so once it's in you'd never know. Also, if you ever do decide to do the second reverse light (cause it's really a pish easy n well worth mod) you will have to cut a hole in the markings on the back anyway so no point paying extra for the genuine one.

Then with the 10quid you saved, get this red cree fog bulb

After reading this tread, I began to dislike the unclean look of one red and one white lights on my car. I did not go all the way with reverse lights on both sides. Just exchanged the red one with a reverse light and equipped it with a red Cree. Looks better end works fine:

Looks much better mate,
Keep hold of your red unit, you may wish to fit a dual function unit in the future.

Here is an image of mine mate,

They all function the same though.
