Open the bonnet and you will see a triangular panel with 3 round clips, the centre of the lifts up (but doesn't come out) lift the centre of the clips to release the lock and then remove all three clips



once you done this, you remove the rubber seal and move the triangular panel out of the way, once you done this you can see a circular rubber bung



This should just pull off but may need a little help to break the seal.

with that out of the way you can see a white lever, this needs twisting towards the back of the car slighty to unlock it from the mount.



you can then extract the bulb and change it for the LED



Refitting is just the reverse.

the bulbs I used were these: - Click Here -

PLESASE NOTE: They will not fit the number plate holders as the bulbs are to long, I'm currently searching for some to do that

Great photos, thanks for the guide as well.
I used these number plate LED's and they work just great.

I have just done this.
Took me 20 minutes maximum and that was in the dark. Excellent guide.

Sorry to be the one here, but can I state that I can't find the "rubber seal and move the trangle part out of the way". Is this the rubber multi plug shown in the second picture?
