  • Side lights - How easy are they to fit?

    Ive ordered and collected a pair of LED sidelights, but how the f*ck do i install them?
    Do i have to remove the battery and air filter from their respected sides or is there an easier way? I can undo the covers without removal of any parts, but how can i actually change the lights? Maybe my hands are too fat

    Cheers,

            I think it's a pain in the *** just for changing some lights, not exactly a 2 min job.

            LED lights will work on the Corsa without any probs.
