- open bonnet
- lift the end of the black radiator shroud out
- undo the one screw in the top of the indicator housing completely and put it in your pocket
- push the indicator housing from the rear towards the front of the car and it will pop out. at this stage it is held in by a ball assembly. the first time you take it out it can be quite stiff so it may take a little while, just keep pushing hard.
- once you feel it start to give back off the pushing as the wiring is still connected.
- once out, turn the orange globe holder at the back (the wires run into this) and it will pop out.
- bulb is normal bayonet fare (push and turn)
- installing is just a reversal of this procedure, with attention paid to the following points:
* make sure you push the indicator housing in far enough to sit flush again
* when you are looking for the screw, its in your pocket.

:wink:
