Hi, I did this last year and its a bit of a faff. You need to open the boot and remove the plastic panel to get at the fittings. I think if I remember correctly that they unscrew an eighth of a turn and pull off leaving access to the bulb itself. Cheers MC

Good stuff, not the easiest bulb to change! What about the leak in your brakes, did they fix that too? Cheers MC.
Aparently they put new seals in ma calipers...i thought that my calipers were a single unit and that there was no way of changing the seals ! anyway it passed the MOT so thats a wee bonus..

Hi Saw your message regarding rear number plate bulbs on the picanto.
I have a 56 reg which needs one replacing, I am I correct I would need to take the trim off inside the boot. Then take the plastic panel off, which is in the way ogf the two screws for each bulb assemble. Not a good job, think I will order some 501 LED bulbs.

Regards


Paul
