    The O/S sidelight bulb in my 7th Generation diesel accord has blown. it looks impossible to get at from inside the engine bay, I've had the light cluster out before when I did the VSA module, but my back is playing up and I'm not getting any younger, so I called the Honda dealer where I got the car originally from, after being on hold for what seemed like ages, they came back with a price of £42 +vat, so £48+ just to change 1 sidelight bulb!! Needless to say, I will not be taking them up on it!

    You can get to the bulb via the fender lining access is a bit hard but you can do it if you don't want to spend £48 quid.

    you can easily change it by lifting the power steering reservoir out of the way

    No need to go into the arches at all, just be good at working with your fingertips
