    Try long nose pliers but with some rubber tape around the tips, it will help grip the glass.

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Easiest way to change the front map reading lights is to undo the three torx bolts and drop the whole light unit down. You can just untwist the bulb fitting and pop new ones in then

    What bulbs are these and how many?

    Gonna change mine for white as they tend to be brighter, but need to know how many to get and what type.

    You need six 501 type bulbs four for the front and two for the rear but when i changed the bulbs in the rear they did not work for some reason so put the old ones back in
