    First this is the bulb you need. Halfrauds do em

    Next disconnect the battery and remove the trim, just pull it off carefully

    You may find at least one of the plastic lugs that hold it in place will be left behind. They can be fetched out with a flat bladed screwdriver if you don't have a trim removal tool and your careful.

    Put any lugs that got left behind back on the panel, they slide on easily.

    Next using a flat bladed screwdriver you will need to push two white tabs to release the light hopefully the pictures will help, they are hard to see.

    Sorry bit blurred tried to get in close.... If you half close the tailgate from the outside you should see that the light has started to come away. You can just make out a gap forming at top of the picture.

    Pull the light gently...very gently to expose the bulb holder only pull it as far as necessary being careful not to pull on the rear wash pipe.

    Twist 45 degrees and then pull to remove the bulb holder.

    The old bulb will just pull out.
    When ever replacing high wattage bulbs I'm always careful not to get greasy fingers on the bulb I believe they last longer if they're clean ;)

    [​IMG]

    Refit the bulb holder and gently but firmly press the light back untill you hear the two tabs click home.

    Open the tailgate again and refit the trim, reconnect the battery.

    Jobs a good un. :D:D:D
