    Yep thats right once the small cover is removed in the boot there is a long black plastic nut that holds the light in.I used a 13mm socket on it but you can use a screwdriver but the socket I think was easier(bolt on right of photo) then gently pull the light away from the body and the 2 pop studs should come out but do it gently.Then unclip the wiring loom.:thumbsup:

    I'm obviously blind as I can't see a difference between picture 2 and 4!!

    By the way, you don't need any extra tools to remove the plastic nut. There is a screwdriver in your tool kit (providing its complete) that will fit the slit in the plastic bolt :)

    I don't know to be honest! I've got a Sportback so had no idea what the difference would be, I obviously knew there were newer clusters but I honestly didn't know what the difference was :) Looks good darker though

    I'd be interested in the MY09 if they are in good condition.

    I know was very lucky indeed as I got the O/s one 3 weeks ago for £55 plus p&p and the N/s on Tuesday came up for 99p to start for 7 days I wasn't going to wait that long so I offered him £60 there and then and it arrived in the post Thursday.Haven't seen a pair of MY11 lights for auction for months.I'll keep my eyes open for you:thumbsup:

    Thanks mate, there was a pair on there but they had hairline cracks in each one. No good for the OCD in me...

    Give Nigel (NHN) a shout on here, he supplies them. They're brand new so won't be as cheap as Spartan91 got them for though.
