Hi all,
Silly question. How do you change the side bulb on a Clubman?

I've taken the light assembly apart and the bulb is in the headlight but seems like it's wedged in via a rubber base.

I assume there's an easy Nack to this, but having never changed one, just can't figure it out!

Thanks

On a roundnose mini the side light is a part of the head light. On a sealed beam it hangs below the main lamp connector and on a halogen conversion it is a push fit into a rubber gromet on the back of the headlamp.
On a Clubman the sidelight is part of the indicator unit . remove the two screws that hold the lens on to reviel the sidelight and indicator bulbs.
You may want to put up a picture of what you have.

It appears to be a push fit. There is the main beams bulb above it, and then the sidelight in rubber grommet. Does this twist out or how does it come out? Don't want to wreck it.

I have roundnose lights on a clubby, and the indicator unit is just the indicator

Thanks. I'll give it another go. The rubber just looks too wide on the inside of the light to fit back out
