Many thanks in advance.

I think it may become obvious when the new ones arrive.

There are two spring clips that are on the sides of the lamp housing and carefully levering the lamp unit out will compress the clips and it will pop out.

Refitting is easier as it will just push back in and the spring clips will hold it in place.


A youtube of your finished job showing them in action would be good to see here :)
