I have been looking around in the manual, internet and youtube regarding the replacement of the bulbs. I have seen some other cars of a similar age having the bulbs replaced however it seems that there are several approaches. One is to remove the mirror cover. Another is to pivot the mirror back by prying it and hinging it over. I have seen other examples where the owner is pivoting the mirror slightly and then (in the case of the puddle light) pushing it out with a screwdriver. Just wondering which method is the right on for this car. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Do the puddle lights on a warm day so the plastic tab is less likely to break. When the tab does break anyway buy a replacement from FCP so next time the replacement is free ;)

Thanks for the info! I am having an issue with the attachment for some reason - getting the following message:

Not sure if it is just me perhaps?

Thanks again.

VIDA says to remove the mirror glass (by hand), then push out the bulb housing from the inside.

Yeah, I was afraid of that. Thought I fixed it because they showed on my phone shortly after I posted.

I’ll boot up VIDA and do the less glamorous photo of the screen with my phone — I know that will work.

Well, it’s not either of us — just like photobucket, Tapatalk has gotten greedy now also and wants me to upgrade to VIP status before it will let me attach more than one photo at a time. That’s a recent change that occurred since I first posted. I’ll send you a PM.

Will this show? Quality is poor due to Tapatalk non-VIP status, sorry. I can only post one image (of medium size/quality) per post.
