    If its a face lift the side lights pull straight out. No need to take the air box off.
    You will need to take the rear plastic light cover off. This is a short turn anticlockwise.

    I did both lights in 10 minutes total.

    Not sure whats involved if its a pre-facelift.

    Sidelights on yours Dwabo (pre-face) are behind the oval shaped plastic covers that click into the back of the light assembly. Bulb just pulls out, no need to twist or anything. You can do it all without having to remove the airbox - as long as you don't have hands the size of plates! lol
