Hey guys,


I did a quick search to see how to do this but didnt find much... any way could someone tell me how to remove them? There is water in my left tail light and i wanted to dry it out.

Or does any one know how much it costs just to get someone to fix it?

Thanks,

Waz.

They are bastards to get the lights out. Took a mate and i a little while cause neither of us wanted to break anything!!

As warlock said, open boot and undo the two screws on the outside. But what we found easiest was to rock the taillight outwards, and to put ours hand behind the back and push them out SIDEWAYS. As in, pull the inside corner towards the back, and push the assembly from behind to the left/right side of the car.

They were pretty tight, but ddnt break!! :P
