    Hi Folks,

    Need a little advice on how to remove the rear lights from a W reg A3T. I can see it is secured by the 4 screws but im actually finding it hard to find a tool to use to get a grip onto the screws in order to undo them without getting in the way of something else. Can anyone recommend a way of taking them off. The most awkward ones to remove are the ones on the right hand side of the light as it is covered by the plastic part that holds the bulbs in.

    If you remove the bulb holder from the cluster you should be able to use a 1/4" rachet and socket for a majority of the nuts IIRC, and a spanner for the others.......it really isn't complicated.
