    confused Side light bulb needs replacing

    The age old problem how do I get the left hand side sidelight out. I have pulled the black cover off and there does'nt appear to be a clip holding it in like the main beam, tried to pull out and twist but afraid I will break something, is there a way of getting the thin out . HELP !!!!!!!!!!!

    The black bulb holder should just pull out. It might be tight thats all.

    I have just tied it and it does'nt want to come out, give it a good tug (ooooerrrrr) I also tried to twist and pull but to no avail. I should say is a 2003 vectra dti, if that makes any difference.
