PostSubject: How to retrieve my bulb.   Wed Sep 05, 2012 6:48 am

Hi all, need some advice if possible.
Lost a stop and tail bulb inside the rear unit (exhaust side) while replacing LEDs ... Yeh I know, "Plonker" is the word that pops up.

Tried to retrieve through the opening in the boot, but no joy, even with a flexi telescopic grab.

Looked at removing that side panel, but that aint gonna gain any real space/handroom.

So it looks like I either take out the boot inards, or remove the tail light altogether (probs the best option) as I could then simply shake it out.

I only have the German Service Manual, so would really appreciate any advice, as I don't want to just dive in and demolish the whole back end ... I know someone out there will know which parts and in what order to remove them.

Cheers Keith.

Don't know if you could use it but try sticking a lump of blue-tac on the end of the grab. The other alternative is to buy one (excuse to upgrade to LED).

Cheers,

My manual in English says... Rear Body Cover Removal -Remove rear spoiler -Remove side body covers -Remove the bolts and self tapping screws -Disconnect 6P connector -Remove rear body cover -The rear lamp assembly can then be removed.

.. That's great thanks ... Think I.m gonna either invest in an English version of the manual, or learn German.

Much obliged, Cheers Keith.

While I'm on, does anyone know of a reliable download service for the workshop manual ... Tried all the usual Ebay links, but they all seem to redirect you to other sites
