For those wondering, 10mm on the rear or flat blade screwdriver... pop from side of light first! then unplug
btw! Looking good!!!! transforms the car
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:
looks great mate! not too sure about the extra badging though :$
Thank's yer sorry about the badge I know many hate there A3's marked up on the rear it's a marmite subject and I like marmite,think I'm the only one who does.
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
Maybe the new ones are a bit darker perhaps?
Yep 2010-2012 lens which I know you know are darker
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
Much better :icon_thumright:
MY11 > MY09 all day long.
I'd be interested in the MY09 if they are in good condition.
How much? I browse eBay every day looking for some, lucky git
Didn't dare use a screwdriver to unhook it! lol used a bit of plastic wrapped in a microfiber.
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.
Yeah I know mate, I'm not willing to pay full price hence looking on eBay for used ones. Times are tough ha
Tight **** . There's some on eBay at the moment but they're just for the offside.
