    Reach around underneath the main beam and you should feel the connector for the sidelights. Give it a 45 degree turn and then it just pops out. Change the bulb and do the same in reverse to put it back. It is quite awkward but try following the wiring if you still can't feel it, trust me it's there.

    mik post #2 tells you how to. I did both mine last year when people kept flashing me early evenings. Both had blown. Use finger tips, really awkward but it can be done without taking anything off. Mine is even tighter than yours as I have an extra ecu on passenger side in the way. If you can't do it get your bird to do it. That's the good thing about bus owners they always have a bird..... but then they generally have a huge load of noisy kids too
