From inside the boot,you take the cannister off the lights as a unit,and replace bulbs as needed

no question is stupid.

(seriously though, different people know differnt things. some people dont know what a cylinder is, and other people can do a 4 hour presentation on the internal combustion engine for year 12 english.... we had to cut it back to 10 minutes....)

now that really wasn't hard, took me a little while to find the 3rd screw........ apparently there is no 3rd screw they just pop out. Well anyway. turns out its not my globes that were busted, fuse is fine, so i'm guessing its my relay. now the question is. How does one go about tracking down the stop light relay??

cheers guys

INSTEAD OF LOOKING FOR A RELAY I WOULD BE GOIN FOR THE STOP LIGHT SWITCH ABOVE YOUR BRAKE PEDAL THEY ARE THE MOST COMON THING TO GO U CAN GET ONE FROM ANY GOOD SPARE PARTS STORE ( COVENTRY, REPCO ,AUTOBARN ECT) ITS ACTULLY PRETTY EASY JUST REMOVE THE CLIP AND WASHER , PULL OUT THE SWITCH AND PUT A NEW ONE IN. IN THE REVERSE WAY U PULLED IT OUT

try using a multi meter to fin the problem spot.
ie. check from switch to fuse, to relay, to battery etc...

make sure the contact is touching the bulb end,and that the side of the bulb is touching the holder to make a circuit
