    Default Changing Sidelight Bulbs In Vec C Facelift

    ...how the hell do you get the lil runts out?!!

    They seem to be stuck solid - slight "play" in them, but they wont budge from the rear light assembly/socket hole.

    I found it easier to drop the bumper, take the lights out and do them that way. 20 minutes total the job was done, and not a cut hand to be seen.

    I don't get it, I changed both sidelights and headlights (Facelift) in 10 mins total, no cuts. I must have the hands of a little girl. I was expecting a 3 hour swear-a-thon but nope - easy.

    Edit: Now I come to think of it, I did all white interior bulbs as well. Total time, 15 mins. You lot must just be useless.
