Changing / Replacing rear light bulbs on 147

Hi all,

One of my rear bulbs is out - you know the red ones that come on when you have the head ligths on. I have tried to change it by opening the little flap in the boot and unscrewing the screw / disconnecting the power but the auctal holder thingy won't come it - any ideas what I should try next pls!? as I cannot get to the damn bulb

Thanks v.much for your help

The whole light has to come out 3 small 10mm nuts.Incidently if its the offside rear side light and the new bulb does not work it could be a naff control box as fitted behind the fuse box.

While carrying out the above operation I kinda dropped a couple of the nuts down inside the boot trim. Is there a quick and easy way to get them out? Or should I just buy new nuts?
