Dumb question...
« on: April 26, 2004, 11:10:07 PM »
Anyone ever tried to change a rear sidemarker bulb on a B5.5? Can't figure out how to do it in the owner's manual.. don't want to break it. Do I have to take the rear bumper off or something? ;)

Hey Mandy pantz, I have never tried this but I would be surprised if it didn't pop out when you push it from one end or the other.  If that doesn't work and no one here knows, I'd check on CB5.

Sorry, not much help here with my old fashioned B5 bumpers... :-P

Thanks.... maybe between all of us geniuses we can figure it out on Saturday.. I've played with it a little but am afraid to break it. It seems like you shouldn't have to take the whole bumper off for a little bulb... ;)

Here you go...

for the front

push the front end (towards front bumper) of it down until it slides into the bumper, that allow the piece to move and then slide it a bit more to clear those two little posts on the other end, then slide out.

Same goes for the rear, except you press on the far rear and it's the same process.

It's not that hard to do.
