Hello again -

Thank you for your reply / info - My sincere apologies that I could only just get back to you....

I should have asked which side to - but it doesn't matter really. The only difference between the two is that the car generally only has one fog bulb fitted -( a standard 5/21w bulb ) and that is on the drivers side.... so bear that in mind whichever side you are working on. I will give you diagrams / help now as follows - bear in mind that the pics are for the same - whichever side you are working on -

You have as follows:

1. Indicator lamps
2. Stop (brake) lamps
3. The upper tail lamp
4. Tail lamps
5. Back-up (reversing) lamps


Removal

Preparations

See - click 0n this link HERE for diagrams.


Ignition off
- Fold up the floor hatch in the cargo compartment
- Unhook the floor cargo strap
- Push the floor storage compartment and hatch to one side
- Remove the corner section of the floor.


Remove the hatch on the rear side panel.

Removing the rear lamp unit - Click this link HERE.

Remove 2 nuts - top / bottom of the unit = you will see them inside/ back of the unit..

Click HERE.

Remove the tail lamp by pulling it straight back
- the bulb holder by twisting it and pulling it outwards
- the bulb/s..

Removing the upper tail lamp

Click this link HERE.


Remove the lower tail lamp. See Removing the lower tail lamp.
- Slacken off the 2 screws
- Remove the tail lamp.

Installation

Installing the upper tail lamp
Align the tail lamp.
Install the 2 screws.

Installing the lower tail lamp

Install:
- the bulb

- the 2 nuts. Tighten.

Finishing work

Install:

The bulbs are all standard - if you tell the shop where you go to buy the bulbs, they will easily and accurately look up which you need in their book / computer and that will be straightforward.
