    How do i change my sidelight bulbs 'cause they don't seem to work?
    Doesn't seem to be a lot of room behind them especially on the air fillter side, is it a headlight out job???

    cheers guys

    No, but it is tight on the drivers side. With some fiddling the rear case should come off and out, giving you the room to locate the two wires connecting to the side light bulb and twist anticlockwise and pull. You do need a fair bit of pulling force, but be careful not to overdo it.

    Nearside was fairly simple, but offside required removal of airbox feed which was couple of screws and some clips so no probs (didn't go back together so snug but ok)

    Actual bulb holder removal from light unit didn't need twisting they just pulled out and pushed back after (is this right?)

    Apparently supposed to twist and pull, but i found likewise that just pulling seemed to do the trick. I still twist just to be safe.:happy:
