    Default Side light replacement

    Hello all

    I have a 2004 Vectra DTI club, I have a side light that has gone, Is there any quick way to replace the bulb, I have had a look and a quick go at trying to change this, but either im doing it wrong or I need hands the size of a 5 year old!!

    Thanks

    Rich

    Did you take the plastic cap off... looks like this.



    Inside it looks like this, left is the hole for the holder, just pulls out. Its not twisted or locked in...



    And yes, its easier if you have hands like a child

    airbox sides a pain in the arse

    Or pop the lid off the airbox and out off the way, i usually fish the holder right out. grip like a cig but in reverse, then pop it in... Your hand will still get ripped to bits however
