    I have done this a little while ago but can't remember how I got in there I will have a look at my car when i get home "to refresh my memory" and post up some pic's for you.

    I do know i had to remove all the plastic trim on the boot lid.

    yeah was gonna say replace all of them.....halfords charge 2 each IIRC the robbin ****s....you have to unscrew the bottom plastic then pull the top plastic off (out of the clips) and unscrew the light module, pain in the arse job which almost always involves bending the plastic so it no longer sits flush

    Think i got mine for 40p each (2 pound is a joke !!!!)

    Sorry forggot to say as above.

    The biggest bit with the pull on it was were i was confused. So i just give it a good yank. As for the trim round the outside like Animal said you have to bend the plastic & the clips put up a fight.
