Exactly what E has said mate - use a small headed screwdriver - wrap it in a cloth and gently prise the lens off

If you look at the back of the repeater you will see what I would call a plastic lug that flexes in and out, this allows you to push the lamp towards the back of the car and then you pull the front of the lamp out of the wing. Unplug the bulb holder plug in the new one then place the front of the lamp into the wing and just push the back into the wing.

Hope this helps.

Yep, Neils spot on. Look for the arrow on the lens and gently slide. The lens should then pop out. Shouldn't need a lever to get these out :wink:

Clear side repeaters

I just fitted clear side repeaters to my 2001 WRX. Both sets, i.e. the ones on the wing in front of the door and lenses close to the headlights.

Its the front lenses that are the worst to get on and off. I was stressed out completely when I had finished changing them but there is definitely a knack to getting them off. You have to push them off from the bottom upwards using the same tools as Nelson described above.

The originals are just reflectors the new ones I fitted have wiring looms. So i now have front working front repeaters too. Added the chrome bulbs and the girl looks great.

Completely changes the look of the car. Don't know why they aren't standard...

Usually cost 82 for both sets I got them from this guy http://stores.ebay.co.uk/ACEparts-LE...enameZl2QQtZkm for around 35 if anyone is interested!!!

on your car mate, it's a bit different to a 2001wrx.
on the classic shape ones, push the side repeater in the direction of the front of the car, it will eventually get to a point where the side closest to the door will lift out.
