Thanks, I will try this. It seems like the easiest way of the options I have read so I will try it before I have to start removing things, haha. Also, on a slighty related note, I replaced the bulbs in my headlights after fiddling with it blindly for an hour but the passenger side light points up slightly higher than the driver side. It was like this before and after I replaced the bulbs. I tried adjusting it a little but it had no effect. Is it supposed to be like this?

Zx3YTG Never thought about coming from the top. The bottom bolt on the side marker is still going to be a pain because of the big giant air box or whatever it is behind the driver's side bumper cover. There's not enough room to pull the bulb so you'd be working around it anyways.

iminhell Remove the headlight and come at them from the top ... or is there a bottom bolt holding the headlight to the fender? Can't remember ...

rambleon84 I ended up thoroughly destroying mine, and just drilled it out. Spent like a half hour on that side but eventually over powered the little guy thats what happened when i got frustrated with it...

Corner Indicator (Housings?) Swap

Hey, so while my mechanical issues have stopped, I am back to the looks of my car. A few months ago, I bought some black bumper corner indicator housings I guess hey are called. (they just go in the front bumper on the corner and replace the orangey yellow ones) Since I have the rubbish PZEV, on the driver side, some part of an 'airbox' has to be removed to get the piece out and the other in. There is a how-to guide on here about this but the pics were removed so I just wanted to know if anyone had pics of this so I know exactly what to do.

Thanks for any help on this.
