GT Front Indicator removal

Hi Guys,
One of the indicators is fogged up with condensation, so I want to remove it.
I can see the two little clips underneath the light fitting. I can release them using a couple of spoons, but NO WAY can I get the actual light housing out. It is just too damn tight. (ooh er missus)

Any handy hints?

Re: GT Front Indicator removal


they are just clipped into position. but yes, i found it was a bit fiddly to remove them too. both the top and bottom edges seem to catch whilst trying to remove them. you just have to persist, and try and lever them out, paying attention to both the top and bottom edges. it's also as if they become released, but then become caught partway out; it also means when you refit them, they may need to be pushed in further than you think. if you do one side at a time (that's if it's not too late), you then have one side for reference.

did you manage to get the indicator out, ive got exactly the same issue as you. Ive worked on loads of cars, built 2 & changed many bulbs, but I have never had anything as one-eyed as these!! ok its dark but i have got a torch.

Help im on the verge of kicking it dry instead

Thanks Jamie

Hi Guys,
You may not have to remove the indicators in order to clear up the condensation. I was recently told by my Alfa garage that the best way to sort it out was to leave on your hazards for 30 min. The heat generated by the lights will clear the condensation. Don't know if it works but the mechanic was positive that it would.

I have got the same problem. Easy to get mine out but cannot solve to water problem.

Is it best just to get a new unit. I have one that fills with water. I have had it out and silicone but just does not seem to solve issue.
