    Installing side light bulbs...

    I've just fitted some new headlight bulbs which were very easy to do however the sidelight bulbs seem to have been put in a place which is not humanly possible to get to.

    I have removed the plastic cover at the back which gives access to the main beam and I can see the wire going to the sidelight bulb but it feels just out of reach.

    Has anyone got any tips?

    Gently pull the wires themselves, the sidelight should just pop out.

    I thought about doing that but wasn't sure if it was one of those awkward plugs that clip in.

    prepare to get your hands scraped and reach in, grab the wires (not a singular wire) and pull... at this point you will no doubt scrape your hand but fear not as your skin should still be on your hand... you think that was hard? try and put the new bulb back in!
