    Is it simply a case of removing the 2 Torx screws on the inside then pulling backwards? I’ve undone the screws but the light unit still feels like it’s attached. When I pull I feel like I’m putting far too much force into it just to remove a light.

    Yes it’s just two screws. Stay patient keep wiggling and it’ll come out eventually!

    They are a nightmare to remove the first time round due to the 2 prongs on the outside of the light cluster. If you have a look at this video you'll see their location. Ideally you want to get a few fingers between the cluster and body on both sides of the light and pull.

    Two fingers and plenty of wiggling, solid advice lads @Big Ben @DS197

    Apologies, I looked at your profile instead of the forum section. This video is for the MK4 and it appears that the two prongs that I was talking about are now along the top of the light cluster. The same advice still applies, secure both ends of the cluster and don't be afraid to use some force when pulling it out.

    Yeah I know, it’s out of date. I did have a 197 but have a non sport mk4 now.

    I tried updating on a phone but I must have to log in on a desktop to do it.
