Does anyone have a quick guide on how to remove the side repeaters and put new ones on?

Is it a case of sliding it off or is it stuck?

If you have clear replacements, what yellow bulbs do you need?

Yea just slide repeater forward and pop it out - twist the bit behind repeater to get repeater off the bulb connecter to get access to bulb. Change bulb to an orange one (should come with most new repeaters). Make sure your holding cable connector thing all the time otherwise it can slip back through the hole and then you'll have problems lol. Then put connector onto new repeater and remember to twist connector on again. Then place back in hole of car and slide back into position - job done!

It may have some glue stuff but mine didn't - if it does you'll just need to loosen it with some hot water or something.

Quite simple then. I thought u slide them as I was looking to see how it comes off and found it slides one way. But i didnt know and dodnt wanna slide it too far and snap something. So shall i just push harder and it shoudl come off cleanly?

Yea just give it a good firm push towards front of car and should come off. Maybe just pour some hot water over it anyway if you find it to hard to budge and that should loosen anything stopping it from moving :thumbs_up:

i made the mistake of buying "universal fit" clear side repeaters from halfords once, they dont quite fit on the driver side indicator. cause the bulb holders are angled at 45 degrees. that was fun afternoon shaving down and bending plastic :-(

mine were £13 delivered from ebay and thy were a straight replica of the yellow ones, mine are clears, all i had to do was slide the old ones off, replace the rubber seal on the new ones and plug them in etc.

Mine were £6 from place called Checkpoint in Aberdeen that ordered them in for me - normally a bit pricey but these were spot on - ordered from Ultra and like elseyjames, were a replica of standard ones.

Can you even seen them when they're on during the day time lol?

I put clear crystal ones on mines and with the chrome bulbs they are quite dull in the day...can barely see them.
I've ordered some SMD amber LEDs to make them super bright instead

Another tip, if the indicator is being a pain to get off, just wrap some masking tape around the end of a screwdriver (so the paint doesnt scratch) and prise it off. I got mine off ebay for like 7 quid.
