    Default Side Repeater Replacement

    Hi all, can anyone help me as on how to remove the side repeaters from the car?

    I can not find anything in the manual and i have tried to slide them towards the front and rear of the car but no joy.

    Would be most grateful for any help, advice or pages to look at in the manual.

    Generally worried i will rip the whole thing off the wing.

    Does it slide off?

    the best thing is to lift them where the point at the front of the indicator is and then it unclips. this is what i did when i replaced mine about a week ago

    Here's the back of one.




    You can see the springy tab next to the straight edge (the one towards the back of the car). You simply pull/carefully prise that edge out and it'll pop out.

    Dave i changed mine the other day. I pushed the lens to the rear of the car, the side of the lens was level with the edge of the wing and then just lift it up at the wing side. It just pop's off. Then just twist the bulb housing out of the lens. Job Done.
    I also thought i was going to snap it but it's OK.

    Hi all, cheers for the advice, got the repeater off no bother but was amazed to find - NO WIRE and NO BULB.

    Don't know if car was built like that of if the wire has fallen inside the wing.
