Probably a ridiculously easy solution but I haven't got a Haynes manual yet. How do I get the side repeaters off without scratching f**k out of my paintwork, anyone any ideas?

The ones in the fender, or the bumper? They are both held in by spring retention. the fender ones, just slide to whichever side lets it move and remove. The bumper, push in on the front or rear end (can't remember) of the reflector and slide backward. May need to coax it forward with a flat blade screwdriver tip covered with electrical tape. Dirst and grit builds up underneath it and can cause considerable friction.

I use an old credit card to slide in and release the tab... No scratches so far!

We kinda need to know if you have a B5 or B5.5, and if you have a B5.5, are you talking about the side blinkers or the side bumper markers?

Sorry for the confusion guys! It's a B5 and I was on about the wing(fender) side repeaters! Sounds pretty simple now! Many thanks!
