Underbonnet lamp - removal, refitting and bulb renewal

1 Disconnect the battery negative lead.

Removal and refitting
2 Detach the wiring connector at the left-hand bonnet hinge, and attach a length of string to the end of the wire running from the lamp.

3 If necessary, remove the underbonnet insulation by prising out the two-piece plastic securing clips, then working at the lamp, pull the wiring and the string through the bonnet panel.

4 Detach the string from the end of the wire, and remove the screw securing the lamp to the bonnet. Withdraw the lamp.

5 Commence refitting by attaching the end of the wiring to the string, and pulling the string and wiring through the bonnet panel. Further refitting is a reversal of removal.
