    Side Light Bulb Problem

    Hello everyone.

    I have a Astra G 2.2 SRi and have tried to change the side light bulbs to LED's but cant get the original bulbs out!

    It seems as if they have been stuck in there some how!

    Anyone else have this problem and how they got around it?

    Chris

    Sorry,

    I have taken the holder out if the headlight unit and unclipped the holder from the wire. But the actual bulb is stuck in the holder.

    I have tried using pliers but it's like they have been glued in!

    Cheers
