Hi.

Golf Mk5 57 plate.

I have changed the headlight bulb and managed to eventually change the full beam bulb, but how the heck do you get the small (501) sidelight bulb out....please

If its similar to a mk4 one, just give it a good tug NOT from the wires but from the base of the bulb and the bulb and the holder should pull out. Easy to replace.

My bro's side repeater went couple of weeks back, Was easy god dam peazy!

I have a MK4 and was pretty much the same, push the light to either side the letft or right as they have two metal clips on both side that have a certain amount of flex in them.

So basically your pushing or pulling either was and then getting your fingr nails behind and pull.
