Changing rear bulbs (Spider)
A bit embarrassed to be asking this, never ever needed assistance for something that's always been the easiest bit of maintenance in the past, but how the hell do you access the rear tail light bulbs on the Spider?
The owner's manual makes it sound so simple (which it ought to be):
Page 184 says remove the rear light unit 'lid' (actually a bit of trim) fig. 30.
Fig. 31 then shows it removed with 4 access holes to the bulbs.
Mine looks nothing like that - the holes are opposite metal, not the bulbs - it's impossible to access (see pic).
Is this the usual case of the owner's manual being complete pants and a whole load of extra stuff needs to be removed first, or a schoolboy error on my part?
