    I have pretty big hands, and I managed to change mine.

    I'm not saying I escaped unscathed though, what a ruddy job!!

    Are you aware that they'll flicker because of the bulb check system?

    Yep they all do in a vec unfortuately,canbus compatible just means they won't throw any error messages up on your screen,serching for a solution to this one is like searching for the holy grail
