    Mornin guys,

    Prob just me having big hands lol but how do I change the passengerside indicator bulb, I cant get in enough to twist the holder out. I dont fancy taking anything apart just for a bulb or to pay some spotty teen in Halfrauds £5 to do it haha!!

    Thanks

    If your pre-facelift just pop the indicator out, all you have to do is push a little lever type thing down and the indicator unit will slide out.

    If post-facelift (one piece lamps) its easy to take the lamp out. 3x TX40 bolts....

    That's the best pic I can find, the top one.

    If you look at the side of the actual headlight you can see where the indicator slides in to join onto the headlight, thats where the tab is that you need to push down to release it from the headlight.

    Here you go... took this when I first had the same problem! You can see a little phillips plastic screw head. You need to turn that 90 degrees, then push down. The whole indicator will slide directly forwards. When you're all done and slot the indicator back into place, remember to turn the little screw thing again or it can fall off.
