    Default Replacing rear light bulb in estate tailgate. How?

    How do you get the large plastic trim off the tailgate on the estate?

    I need to replace one of my rear light bulbs that is on the tailgate itself.

    I don't want to start tugging at it if there are some hidden screws around.

    Cheers

    not that hard...

    Remove the inside handel (torx 25) then remove the 2 pop-rivets on eachside off the lock.. then just pull.. start from a corner Not at the plastic end.

    A few quick pic to show.

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    Your instructions were very helpful.

    Though after I thought lets look in the manual at which bulbs I need to buy and it told you how to remove the panel anyway. doh!

    In my handbook the bulb replacement for the estate is mentioned, as well as the saloon/hatch models.
