    Side Lights - Really need help PLEASE

    Hi all, im new on here and i have a problem which i really hope someone can help with. I own a MK5 Astra, 2006, 5dr. I want to put new side light bulbs in but when i removed the side light i have found that the bulb is stuck in the holder by the welded pins. Please reply if you have come across this and know of a way round it. Many thanks. Lewis

    i think you're saying the bulb has melted the holder and you can't get the bulb out? Haven't been into the Astras headlights but the sidelight normally comes out of the headlight unit inside the holder...if this is the case simply cut the wires and replce with a new bulb holder.

    There should be two wires going into the holder and AFAIK the polarity doesnt matter with sidelights so you won't have to worry bout putting it back together wrong.

    Hope that helps, if not take a pic and fire it up

    If you can't race it or take it to bed; it's not worth having
