Changing Break Bulbs On 56 Plate Fiesta.

7 posts in this topic

Any one done this yourself? I used to own a Toyota Yaris before this and that was simple, the plastic casing at the back would pop off and you could unscrew the bulb and change it in under a minute. Looking at the fiesta though, there's 2 screws on the actual light case which require a t25 bitpost-26507-0-73987400-1359986332_thumb.p and a bolt at the back fixing it to the car. Surely there's an easier way than having to take the whole light off? I haven't got a manual with my car to check the right way to do it. Any help would be great.

Unfortunately the whole light unit needs to be taken out to access the bulbs. As you've said theres 2 screws at the front and a securing bolt accessed just above the wheel arch in the boot. Then theres a push clip on the out edge of the light. You just pull the light at the outer edge to get the unit out. Then the bulb holder is just clipped in

You should be happy you don't have a mk7 they have put a wing nut up the side of the boot behind the carpet in the most awkward position to undo

The mk6 is the same. Wingnut in the boot behind the carpet. The facelift model does away with it though
