Probably easier with the bonnet off but not essential. Remove grille. You may need to remove the wheelarch liner on the side you want to change. There is a nut /stud which goes through a hole in the wing. The way it is fixed seems a bit variable. I have had one where the nut was behind the indicator unit and another where the nut was on the inside of the wing.

No mate, no need to remove the bonnet.

Bonnet shut, remove the front grille.

Bonnet open, remove the side indicators ( just pull the safety wire off the hook and they come off )

Remove 2 or 3 nuts on top and 1 nut on the side ( accessible since you removed the grille )

Shut bonnet gently

Pull them out ;)
