Re: Parking Bulbs

If ya on about sidelights undo the screw totally that sits above the headlight with the plastic bracket off the sidelight lens(just overlaps headlight slightly i think)then with ya hand flat on the side of the sidelight lens push forward away from the front of the car(at rear of lens it fits on like a ball/socket snap together job quite tightly)

once loose its then a bit of a job to thread the plastic bracket off the top past headlight/edge of the front wing however dont need it right out as once out so far you can undo the bulb from the lens anyway.

Hope this helps mate(dont take long trust me)

Re: Parking Bulbs

No probs-when i first were looking at changing one were like WTF !!!


Indicators on the spacestar(runabout) are along the same lines however ive broke both the clips off them when i changed amber indicator bulbs for silvatec ones-pissed me right off when i broke the 2nd clip off other side lens as i were really careful after breaking the first-theyre now screwed in at the top an tie wrapped in at the bottom............Simples (its only the runabout)
