Hi - anyone changed these successfully? I tried searching for previous how-to's but couldn't find anything.

 

I can see there are several panels in the tailgate that could potentially be removed to get to it, but I don't want to wreck anything!

 

Any advice greatly appreciated.

 

Cheers

I've not done it myself, but the owners book says:

Press the tab on the left hand edge of the (number plate light) lens and the lens will come down.
Remove the lens from the lamp holder by squeezing the tabs on the side.
Pull the bulb straight out of its socket.
Push new bulb until it bottoms in the socket.
Check new bulb works.
Slide left hand side of the light into the hole then latch the right hand side into place.

You just need a small flat blade screwdriver and the light from your phone...

Cheers Matt! Embarrassingly I didn't think to look in the manual  :mellow:

 

Much appreciated  :)
