    Hello,

    What fitment are the sidelight bulbs? are they w5w or are they something else?

    Also what fitment are the indicator bulbs on the front wings, and how to do remove the light housing to change the bulb?

    All info and advice will be helpful, thanks

    removing the indicator housing is easy there will be a clip on one side u just need to get something in there and press it in and it will pop out. i used a piece of hard but flexible plastic so not to scratch the car. i have 5w sidelight bulbs in my car as this is what the originals were.

    Sidelight bulbs are w5w or 501's. Both the same bulb.

    To remove repeater press firmly against the lens and push towards front of car.This allows the spring clip to slacken off and you can just pull the lens out. Dead easy !
