Rear light removal 27/04/03

As I wish to upgrade to the new round style rear lights the old units and number plate fascia had to be removed.

The rear lights have protective covers which are held on by two wing nuts. Also notice the rust marks on the rear carpet where I removed the screws that hold the plate fascia.
Once the cover has been removed you can then undo the eight 10mm nuts which hold in the rear cluster. I found these only to be finger tight.
Rear light clusters have been removed. Only the numbers plate fascia remaining.
The fascia is held on not only by the four screws but also bonded across the top. I found the best way to free it was to pull the fascia out as far as possible and use a metal rule to break the bonding.
