i would start with a search on ebay . you will more than likely get a very good condition one at a reasonable price. failing that there are a few online breakers yards that you can apply for a quote. a google search for 'online breakers yard' should throw up some results.
cant help you with how to fit but i imagine there will be a couple of screws inside the car

Removing a rear light normally involves undoing a few nuts from inside the boot (after disconnecting the main multiplug).

The best way to check this beforehand is to examine the light unit that you've purchased, this will show you how it is fitted.

It is normally very straightforward, and can be done in less than an hour (even for a first-timer).

I normally can remove one in under 5 minutes.

Hope that helps,


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.

What age of Coupe do you have?.If it's a mk1 phase 1 then I might be able to help you out.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
