    Is the sidelight stuck in the holder?? Or still in unit? If later just a hard yank on wires should get them out.

    If your looking to get your headlights out, take off the rubber cover and connection. Stick your fingers in and have a feel around the edge of the bulb, your should be able to feel the two bits sticking out of the spring clip, squeeze these together and they should drop down and release the bulb. Just be careful fitting the new bulbs, make sure they fit it fully into the holder, you should be able to see this by looking in at it through the headlamp lens
    hope this helps.

    Remember the days when something as trivial as changing a bulb on a car was a piece of cake?!

    I remember my old Citroen AX - you just had to give that thing an evil stare and the bulbs would fall out on their own.

    These days you need a degree in engineering just to change bulbs on a car!
