Pretty easy, although those are the 1993+ style. What year is your car?

If you're suffering from lag, you're either in the wrong gear or the wrong car!

Its a 97.... The lights on the car are ok but the left side has lost its shine. Hope there is no problem with the new ones.

Hi Chas

Few bolts to remove and you are there. Iirc you'll have to remove the center panel too and pry off the corner lights as there are bolts too under it.

Did you try to polish up your old lights?
I got a great plastic polisher solution and I restored mine in 15 minutes to new.

Good luck

Just chucked them on in about 5 mins but have to take them off again at some stage to sand down the inside to get them to fit flush with body work.

I will look into cleaning up the originals because I am not sure about these...

:( What do you all think?

God Knows! I should bring the car to a pre test centre and find out. They should be fine but not sure if they check the alingment? They check the front lights (we all know) but not sure bout the rear.
