    Can anyone tell me how i go about changing one of the bulbs in my centre brake light- how do i remove the rear boot panels? or do i need to remove them? I remember someone posting a schematic before on how to remove these panels but can't find it....any help is much appreciated!!!!

    what a f***ing nightmare....first of all i broke 2 clips removing the panels and then once i replaced the bulb- another bulb went and so on- had to leave the car half unassembled and drive to get bulbs and as it started to rain I had to close the boot carefully but i must have caught one of the hydraulic rams and now i have a lovely squak sound as the boot opens....what a joke

    I got the bulbs from Halfords (in fact i cleaned them out- 5 packets!) - i think the bulb no. is 248- as you say, they are 2.3W....
