    Mate, have a break and tackle it in a bit.
    What's holding it back? Clips, bolts, wires?

    Right on the last one and this is proving the most difficult furthest away top row green on the back. Prob is there is no room so bending yourself into crazy positions to get at it and even with the tab pressed in because have been in since came out the factory take some force to get out so need both hands but real awkward. Not looking forward to putting the new back in but should be easier as just click in no pressing tabs you can't see so have to feel round for. I'm at the stage Micky was at where my finger tips hurt :Frown:

    The return journey is a dream compared and held it in place with a trusty cable tie at the top where the plastic was snapped as were some pre made holes I could utilise :Wink:. Interior lights when open driver door and light on chime are back thanks @MickyB :Thumbup:

    Glad it's sorted.
    I told you it's not easy and your fingers will hurt and your back and your knees why couldn't they put it under the bonnet.

    I may have to do this if the engine fuse doesn't sort out my issue not looking forward to do as it sounds like a pain to do, however I did the clutch master cylinder myself and that is fiddly to do as well, especially refit

    It's easy enough just a bit fiddly and very time consuming. But there's a great relief and @K24 CL9 GUY will confirm this when you open the drivers door and the lights come on.

    I too did this myself and is the same kettle of fish with that is super fiddly and awkward as no room to get to what you need to undo easily.

    After hours of pain it is certainly a victory once you finally get it out and all worth it once the new one is in and all works again :Smile:
