I'm hoping someone out there can help me.

I am a GIRL and don't know an awful lot about cars but I need to replace my front driver's indicator (someone hit me in a car park) and I really don't want to pay a mechanic to do it. I figure that if I can build a house I can replace an indicator.

I have purchased a new unit from ebay and had a quick look under the bonnet today but couldn't immediately see how to unscrew the indicator. Can anyone tell me (preferably step-by-step) how to go about replacing it?

I also had look in the technical documents but can't seem to find the right topic.

And no, I'm not blonde.

Corner Light
---------------

1) Unscrew the Screw on top of the light.

2) Gently BUT Firmly hit the light towards the front of the car and it should pop/slide out of it's holder

3) Turn the bulb holder anti-clockwise and pull

4) Ditch the f**k light

5) put the plug in and turn clockwise

6) slide\pop the light into the hole

7) rescrew the screw in and there ya go

Repeator / Flasher
----------------------

1) get a flat screw driver slide underneath the flasher
2) turn plug anti-clockwise and pull
3) put plug in new repeator turn clockwise
4) slide the flasher in until it clicks.

Cheers Geoff
