    i changed the front wing side indicator lenses as they were a bit tired looking, they are very easy to remove and install there is a hook at the front of the lense and a metal clip at the back. to remove the lense you have to slide the whole lense toward the rear of the car compressing the metal clip at the back and allowing the hook at the front to clear the wing you then at the same time pull out at the front towards yourself. once you have done this its just a case of twisting the bulb holder and pulling it out the back of the lense. to refit put the bulb holder back into the lense and turn so it wont fall out, then with the metal clip at the back of the lense its bent in a way that you almost hook the clip to the wing, compress it rearwards while pushing inwards so that the front hook grabs behind the wing itself, it will grab nicly and the jobs a good'en...

    here is a side view of the lense as you can see the metal clip with the bent bit at the back (our right) and the hook at the front (our left)...
