    Removing Mk3 headlights

    How do you take the front lights out of a mk3 ??? ive tried twice with no luck can they come out with the grill still on? if not where are the clips/screws to remove the grille
    Valve bouncing nova's are the way forward!!

    Grill out i theonly way - the grille takes 2 seconds to come out - it slides to the left and there are 2 retaining lugs below the headlights close to the indicator. there are 3 securing points across the top of the grille.

    You'll need to take the grill off first.

    Then to remove each headlight, undo the screw holding the indicator to the headlight unit. Then just undo both screws holding the headlight to the car. Release all the bulb holders. Job done.
