    Anyone changed to clear side repeaters, if so is it easy?

    I bought some clear ones and wanted to know the best way of removing and replacing with the new ones without scratching paint work on my wings.

    Thanks [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

    I have clear indicators but the small bulbs are still orange, so must change them too.

    I read a post on here recently where someone changed them using a bit of plastic to ease the repeater out. If you can press on the clip on the rear side it should pop out.

    How hard was that to do and how long did the job take you to do.

    Cheers

    About 15 mins each side, just remove the screws IIRC they are torx star screws. Turn the wheels in to get enough access. You can then get your hand inside the wing.

    You cant really tell. However you can buy some chrome bulbs that flash orange which will totally eliminate the orange [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    If you just push the whole repeater towards the front or back and pull out it will pup out. Its a 2 minute job.

    Cheers chaps!

    Sounds like something I can do, without getting it wrong.

    Thanks

    NecroEire,

    What a bloke, top man for providing the pictures. I think I can live with the orange bulbs.

    Thanks again for the pics ;-)
