Hi all,
Has anyone removed the brake light housing? I have taken out the fixing screw and removed the bulb and lens and have removed the boot lining (incredible amount of hidden space)so I can see the housing on the wing. How do you go about removing it? It looks like there are some studs into a cast piece but due to limited line of sight I am not sure. I plan to also replace the drain hoses while I am in there (found them rolling around inside the wing).
Thanks.

Ok answered my own question. You have to remove the boot panels and then you can access the tail light housing. There are two studs and a bridge piece that clamps the light housing to the rear wing. In order to fully remove the housing you have to pull out the reflector housing and remove it from the bulb holder.
