    Can anyone advise me how to get the sidelight bulbs out ?

    I've just put in some Philips Xtreme power bulbs and wanted to try the Bluevision sides that I got for free.

    I read on a forum that they just pull out but all I could get hold of was the wiring and I didnt want to pull too hard in case the wires came out.

    Is there a trick to it or do I have to take the headlights out ?

    Thanks in advance

    The trick is to pull fairly hard on the wiring - then the holders will pop out.

    When you get them out you'll see they've got finger grips = which would be great if you could get both fingers in there!!!!

    You'll not damage the wiring - it's very secure :o.k:
