    Without knowing the context of why you are changing your lights and what from/to its difficult to comment... like for like is bumper off and 2 x Torx 30 on top, 1 x Torx 30 indicator side sorta down the side at the bottom (looking from the top of the headlight)... pre face lift to face lift lights is more involved requiring metal trimming on the wings and wiring plug changes IIRC... after market is anyones guess :)

    sorry yeh i realise my post was a bit vague.


    Im changing from pre-facelifts to 1 piece angel eye headlights. looking for instructions on how to get the orginals out.

    I used ur post above as a small guide and yeh the 1 at the side definately isnt coming out without removing the bumper.

    ill have a crack at the weekend as i think mine are straight swap anyway. cheers tuffty

    (p.s i did search and the results were vague)

    ahh i see well i wonder if the angel eyes are different. Being aftermarket they might have adjusted the fitment. They were definately for my car listed as pre facelift. trial and error i think!

    cheers!
