Hey guys, I have recently purchased after market side indicators for my BF XT sedan and I went to simply take the old lenses off and replace with new, but it seems like a lot more work than I had anticipated. The owners manual suggests going in through the front splash-guard under the wheel arch, but then i encounter those dreadful 'scrivets' that everyone hates!
Does anyone know a simple method for taking the assembly out?

Take off the wheel. Remove all the plastic trim clips. Remove the inner guard and then remove then you can see how it works. I don't think you can simply pop em out like the e/a series ones unfortunately.
