    got new osram bulbs from powerbulbs and decided to swap the main/dipped lights, yep no problem, now decide to try sidelights, err what the!

    any advice on how to remove the sidelight? user's manual says:
    i cant even pull the thing out and given the limited awkward space to work in, feels like i'm going to break something.

    tried removing the other bulbs but still doesnt feel like its coming out, without breaking some bit of plastic with it!

    and this is just the sidelight on the drivers side where there is more space, the passenger side is blocked in by a battery! so yay fun!

    You have to pull on the wires, had the same problem its the only way. The wires wont break or detach either.

    tried that, the whole housing seems to flex in a "pull any more and i'll snap" kinda way.

    :(
