Puddle light removal
« on: July 14, 2015, 09:20:11 PM »
Hi Guys does anyone know how I remove the Mirror Puddle Lights on a Mk3 Galaxy, I have turned the mirrors in  and I can see the Bulb holder but I cannot get my fingers in and remove it and I am afraid I break the mirror while I do it. Cheers ???

Hi Guys a Quick Update to my own Question LOL, I managed to remove the Puddle light Bulb holder by inserting a long Blade screwdriver in and wiggle the rubber bulb holder out as its only pushed in and changed the standard bulb to a new Canbus error free White LED and it looks amazing,Happy days no more Dull Yellow Light. 8-)

Hi John. Sorry I don't have any pictures of the bulb replacement as there's little space for taking a photo, I can only suggest turning the mirror fully in and there is enough gap for a long flat blade screwdriver which you will have to prise out the rubber bulb holder and with a bit of wiggle it will pop out. If you could wait until tomorrow I will take some photos and show you roughly what I did. Andy
