Open the boot, put your hand in the hole behind the light and you should be able to feel a wing nut, you need to un do that as well, then the whole light unit should come away from the car.

Yes, although on the Fiesta it gets worse. On the Focus the bulbs used to stay on the car and the casing came away, on the Fiesta the whole things comes off, THEN you have to un do about 7 little plastic clips around the light casing to get to the bulbs, its a bit tricky getting it back on straight. It's a right pain in the arse!

Just got it done! Found the little wingnut behind some wiring loom behind the carpet i had to pull away

Your right about the plastic clips that hold the bulb plate to the light unit, i undid 6 clips then the first 4 clipped back in. Stupid, stupid design!!!

Cheers all
