156 JTS

Just replaced the sidelights on my facelift 156 today with LEDs. Got thrm for 5 off ebay.

Was very apprehensive beforehand but after reading a few threads and looking with a small mirror I found it easy to change them.
Look for a little black plastic tab about an inch long protruding from the bulb holder towards you when looking through the rear cover with a mirror. Put your hand inside (may need to remove a couple wire from their mounts for easer access) and feel for the tab and wiggle it very gently while giving it a little tug (oo er) towards you and it should click out of it's mountings. Then carefully manouvre it out, easy.

When reinstalling look through the back cover to aim the end of the new bulb into the small hole and then look from the front (with the sidelights switched on) to guide it through and click back into it's mounting with a very light press. Done.

Looks much better with the white LEDs I must say.

I got these off Ebay about a month ago.

But, one has already blown, I'm gonna replace it with the other as my n/s unit needs to be replaced thanks to the previous owner giving the GT little care and attention.

Had this job on the drivers side.
Must admit it would be a lot easier if you could see what you are doing but after some quick reference to the GT manual, actually not too difficult in the end,
It helps if you're not too hamfisted, alfa parts can be quite fragile at the best of times!
