  11. Thanks Keith. Think i just need to give it a bit more muscle. Was scared incase I forced them and damaged something. I'll let you know if it goes well, or I'll post in "parts needed" for a new lamp
  12. I'm probably being a bit thick here but still can't get this working. The unit came with spring loaded bulb holder which fits nicely, right up until I put a bulb in. Once the bulb is in I cant twist the holder in to the locked position. Different bulb size or something? dont want to try forcing it just yet. Thanks for replys so far.
  13. Hi all, Just bought a brand new set of square hella lamps for my GTE. I've been told my standard bulb holder bit at the back may not be the same fitment. Does anybody know if this is correct and will i need extra parts? Hope this isn't too vague a description. Thanks
