    Exclamation a few jobs i need to do..... Advice please???

    hello, well while my car is off the road for a new DMF and clutch im thinking i might aswell get a few jobs done.

    firstly i need to take the front lights out and split them down as the seals have gone and there is mould and condensation building up inside the lights, so i might aswell split them off and clean them, any advice on splitting them please cheers?

    a full service - on the way home from buying everything i need for a full service my clutch / DMF went tits up !!!! so i have all the parts for a full service and now plenty of time to do it, any advice on doing the service will be appreciated thanks

    cheers

    Better to post most of this in the 'engine & drivetrain' forum.

    Scroll down to 'forum jump' and have a look under 'troubleshooting'.

    to split your lights - bake em in an oven to allow the sealant to loosen up or you can use a dremmel type tool to split them open - you could always take the opertunity to paint/colour code them at the same time -

    cheers m8, i was thinking of using a heat gun to split them apart and then spraying them black as this looks quite nice and it is alot cheaper than buying the original black ones.

    what about resealing the headlights though any advice on that fellas?

    thanks
