I hate to sound stupid but I have to ask what it means to de-tango my car? I've seen it on here a few times now and is it something to do with using clear indicators? :)

Thanks guys

You replace the orange indicator bulbs with those that have a silver coating. They still flash orange though. Just gets rid of the fried egg look in your headlights.

Do you have to remove the headlight/rear light unit in order to access the bulbs or can they all be changed whilst still attached to the car?

Need to be removed to get to the bulbs :(

I've changed all of mine. In order of easiness for me:

- Back

- Wing mirrors

- Front

I really struggled with the front ones; I think I slightly broke the holders for the indicator bulbs as I pulled them out. Also, the bulbs only came out by being bent away; they wouldn't fit straight through the gap, unlike the ones I replaced them with. God knows how that was the case. Needless to say, they were changed and de-tangoing the car really does make a good difference, particularly the wing mirrors, I thought.

Let me know if I can give advice (though perhaps not for the fronts!).

It might be because I have the Mk7, not 7.5. My fingers are actually thin and nimble, but that didn't stop me struggling!

I changed my main beams earlier today without trouble too, but I wouldn't touch those indicators again :P
