Has anyone changed their sidelight bulb themselfs here?

i've done them both, pass on my 2.2 with HID mains and the drivers on my dad's with just normal bulbs

basically - with HIDS - BE VERY VERY CAREFULL! as there is a huge voltage running through the balast packs and if your sensible - you'll take the battery off and leave them for 10mins to discharge!

if you want pm me your address and i'll email you the *cough* workshop manual over
