    Not that I need to, but I can't see how you would be able to change a bulb, as the lenses don't move/unscrew & the back of the clusters are hidden by a rear bulkhead. Hopefully I have uploaded the picture correctly to show the predicament.

    I have tried unscrewing & a push in & turn test but each individual lens cover won't move. Other than ringing the dealer i'm at a loss as to how they come off.

    This is from another forum in reply to the same question.



    Just had email from Auto Trail;;


    To remove the light you need to insert a small flat screwdriver between the plastic and the bottom edge of the light. I would place a cloth between the red plastic and the screwdriver so you do not mark the plastic. You will see a narrow slot in the base of the light. The light is held in place with a spring clip.

    some of those round type lights have 3 screws that hold them in from the front but they would be behind the red trim which may just be held with an industrial variant of velcro.

    if you can get to look up from under the van you may see something obvious.
    there are some round lights that just push into a hole and are held with a couple of spring clips.

    there may be some info here..... http://www.jokon.de/en/catalogue-2011.html

    Thank you 'sifta sam' I can see that there is a slot at the bottom of the lens & will try in daylight to get one off.

    I have a similar cluster, Believe it or not it is held on by velchro and also some plastic popper things. Took me ages to work it out, you have to pull and prod very carefully.
