Hi guys just looking for some help in how to remove the rear lights (the complete unit) does this involve removing the fuel tank? Also how do I remove the indicators?

Thanks :)
Kev

Ya you will have to take out the bolt for the fuel tank and slide it across. Then to remove the whole unit there is just four bolts to open inside the boot on each side.

I presume you mean the side indicators as the front ones are just screwed on.
With one hand under the arch pushing the indicator outward move the indicator with your other hand towards the front or rear of the car and it should come out without too much force. The wire and bulb holder simply twist out of the back of the lens.
