Title: Abarth 500, removing side indicators.
Post by: PORTHOS on April 14, 2015, 11:58:52 am
Small DIY for removing the side indicators for black ones or changing the bulb without fender liner removal, the manual says: Prise the point indicated by the arrow, so as to compress the fixing clip..... which isn't the most helpful.

If you use a small plastic card and a bit of detailing spray/car shampoo for lubrication you can slot the plastic card behind the indicators as pictured here:

1. Slide the card behind the indicator in the direction of the front of the car to the back until you hear a pop sound from the clip.
2. Repeat from rear to the front of the car (this bit is a bit harder) and the indicator will pop out cleanly.

Hey presto :)
