Morette Head Lights?

Anybody with Morette Headlight cluster?
How the hell do you change a side light bulb? Sounds stupid but just can't get at it.
Do you have to take the whole unit out? If so how?

Thanks Brett. Sounds pretty straightforward. On Mk4 Golfs you have to take the bumper off as well to get the headlights out.

Nah I think its 5 or 6 of those popper things on the grille and the lights are just bolts u can see, the vectra`s are a pita too arm up the back of the bumper for 1 8mm bolt.

Job done with one minor hiccup. One of the headlamp retaining screws was rusted in and I managed to wring the head off. Drilled, tapped, new M6 screw
and back together. Thanks again.
