Hi

 

Can anyone help:

 

I have read the instructions and can see the wing nuts that have to be removed.

These are extremely tight and I cannot undo by hand - is there a knack or something.

Also it says detach clip - what and where is the clip?

 

I dont want to break anything by using force.

 

Thanks

 

Regards

 

John

I've removed them from 2 MK3 Focus's now, they're too tight to do by hand so use some pliers.

Seems like they are - it is a plastic nut with a bolt through.

Thanks I just did not want to use pliers if there was a simple knack to it that I was unaware of. can you tell me what this clip is the manual refers to.

 

The only picture is of the wing nuts?

 

Am I right to assume I just undo the wing nuts and the light fitting will pull away from the car so that I can undo the wiring plug?

 

Thanks
