    Interior boot light

    Hey guys, iv done a search but to no avail. :-(

    I'm crap at fixing stuff but gotta give it a go, how do I change the stupid interior boot light? Screwdriver and prise the cover off or do I have to take the panelling off to change the bulb?

    Oh and what bulb is it in there?

    Many thanks
    Chris

    There's a few screws you need to undo before you can take it out, think a 501

    Look carefully and you'll see a slot at one end where you can lever it out with a small screwdriver. Take the cover off the back and change the bulb.

    Oooo two different answers, I seem the slot so il give it a yank with a screw driver, if it snaps, I suppose il have to take the rest off anyway :-)

    Thanks for the help guys

    It just pops off, use a screwdriver to lever it out then remove it from the housing. 2 minute job

    What do you mean it wasn't connected? Try closing boot and opening again

    Check it again after you've been for a drive or two. You may find it'll start working.

    Okay the dodgy bulb was replaced, still doesn't work.

    Il keep an eye on it and see if it comes on in near future.

    Iv just read on another forum that it could be corroded wiring up behind the rear wiper where the open/close switch is, hmm I think il just carry on without it lol
