Looking at your first post is it seems your having trouble with the spring clips on the electrical connections? Simply press the spring clip in and pull the connector off, I know it sounds simple and it is. The system is used all over the car.

Thanks Steve440,

Yes it was so dammed cold with my fingers dropping off so the springs were giving me a little trouble. ( now sorted ).

Fitted the projector headlamps this morning but now i cant seem to clip the projector indicators in place. Should i clip them both together before offering up to the car or even loosen the 3 bolts to give a bit more wiggle room.

I suppose because they are aftermarket items these problems occur.
Thanks Ernie.

Indicators fit after the headlights are fitted to the car - they're awkward though.
I found the best method was to insert just the tips of the indicator tabs into the headlight slots then push the unit into place whilst applying light pressure inwards (towards the engine) near the back of the unit so the rear tab would locate in the wing.

The PFV transport spring (if it's fitted) is obvious when you remove the big round bulb access cap on the back of the light.
