    I'm sorry if there's a thread elsewhere on the forum about this but I can't find anything!

    I have two tail lamps gone (one on either side) both being the dual tail/brake lamps. The brake lamp part still works fine and I still have the two outer tail lights working, so I'm still legal for now!

    Obviously, I want to replace the blown lamps but how do I take the rear light units off? I can only see 1 'bolt' per light (just inside the boot opening), is this all that holds the rear lights on?

    Sorry for such a stupid, mundane question but I'm not buying a Haynes manual just for that, and I'm too lazy to try one of the 'bolts' to see if thats all that holds the units in place! :lazy:

    Undo the screw on the inside of the boot and then prise light out of fitting as it is held into the body by 2 pegs, nothing else to undo.

    The bolts are covered by a small circular cap, this is just inside the boot shut on the vertical part. Undo them and undo the bolts then pull the cluster outwards away from the bolt
