Tail lights in boot.
How do you get these out?

I've tried twisting left and right, using fingers and pliars, but no movement. If I haul on them harder something's going to snap.

I'm talking about the tail lights in the boot door. Car is a FL S8.

Thanks in advance...

Unless someone beats me to it, I’ll have a look later this morning

There are a couple of bolts to undo, one is a little fiddly to reach because the bodywork is in the way. Or do you just mean the bulb? Pretty sure the holder just twists a little one way and it should come out.

I had a look at mine. You just twist the bulb holder anticlockwise, just a smidgen (the black one is the rear light bulb and the white one is the reversing light) and then it pulls out to reveal the bulb which is a sprung bayonet fitting. Might be worth ordering a spare form our sponsors if you think it’s going to break.

I can't get mine to twist.
Time for some WD-40 I think.
It's probably not been touched for twenty-odd years...

Pete, yep. Just trying to change the bulb.
