    Yep thats right once the small cover is removed in the boot there is a long black plastic nut that holds the light in.I used a 13mm socket on it but you can use a screwdriver but the socket I think was easier(bolt on right of photo) then gently pull the light away from the body and the 2 pop studs should come out but do it gently.Then unclip the wiring loom.

    I'm obviously blind as I can't see a difference between picture 2 and 4!!

    By the way, you don't need any extra tools to remove the plastic nut. There is a screwdriver in your tool kit (providing its complete) that will fit the slit in the plastic bolt

    Maybe the new ones are a bit darker perhaps?

    I don't know to be honest! I've got a Sportback so had no idea what the difference would be, I obviously knew there were newer clusters but I honestly didn't know what the difference was Looks good darker though

    Give Nigel (NHN) a shout on here, he supplies them. They're brand new so won't be as cheap as Spartan91 got them for though.
