    ? Loads of others selling them. And no they went in easy. A gentle tug of the wire and bingo. Then i changed the bulbs :rofl::rofl:

    Well TBH i just gently pulled them by the wires. Not ideal but worked.

    Take your pick Just to say double check the item first, i just did a search for 'Canbus 8 SMD LED'

    Did you still got no error?
    I've got the same LED's but a error:cry: Maybe the problem is not 4 of the same lights in my case. The Chinese sell two different lights[:@]

    changed my sidelights today - not ideal weather, but that's what a garage is for!

    big thanks to everyone for the info on this thread - just one question...when you're putting the sidelights back into the car, do they have to go in a certain way? couldn't help but feel they weren't in as tight as they were when I took them out?

    I dont have any pics of the lights on my car but i'll get it off the net to show you what I'm talking about.

    This is what mine look like at the moment:

    ht tp: // img413.image shack.us/img413/3562/dsc00216copyly2. jpg

    and this is what I want:

    ht tp: // img396.image shack.us/img396/3931/aeromc0. jpg
