Re: Fitting a 156 rear (boot-lid) light
Just to follow-up on this, I finally got around to fitting the light this weekend. It's actually not completely trivial, so for future reference:
You have to undo quite a few of the carpet fasteners to get to the nut that's on the top-side of the light. The four along the front edge can be removed by unscrewing them with a Phillips driver, which is easy. The rest of them need to be pried out with a flat-head screwdriver, some brute force, and a bit of patience. Not sure why they're not all the same easy-release type ...
Once that's done, you just need to remove three 8mm nuts. The problem is that one of them is extremely tricky to get at -- between the light itself and the top surface of the boot-lid, there's no space to get a spanner on it. I was able to lay my hands on a mini socket driver, which worked a treat. You might get away with attacking it from above with a pair of pliers instead, but you won't get an adjustable spanner in there.
Apart from that, it's simple, just make sure you have a suitable tool for that one tricky nut.
