Re: Removal of rear cluster lights

You have to unscrew 4 cluster retaining screws then you can lift the lights out of the car provided you unclip the electrics plug ,[they usually need a good pull to get lights off]

Re: Removal of rear cluster lights

Its more complicated than that miff but still childs play

Remove the black plastic trim that goes along the bottom/back edge of the boot. You have to remove the two tie down hooks (6mm alen key) and Just a few posi screws

Now you can remove the black plastic trim covering each light. Thats just two posi screws each side.

You can see the cluster now. that is bolted on with 3x 10mm nuts undoo them and the cluster comes off.

Easy.

Its a nightmare finding these trim parts in scrap yards because ignorant people keep braking it to get to the lights

Re: Removal of rear cluster lights

Cheers for that again!, i've asked this in another thread already but just wanna check! cause my dad is arguein otherwise but when you want to tint your rear tail lights, do you
1. spray them on the outside of the light
2. or take the cluser off and spray them from the inside
thanks again!
