P80 Wagon Rear Lens assemblies Removal

Post by abscate » Wed Dec 14, 2016 6:38 am

Couple of notes on this job

Pop out the speakers, then remove the electrical sockets from the lens, depressing tab, then pulling white connector forward

There are four 10mm M6 nuts holding on each lens (one up high, two amidships, one low) , they are on long studs so you need a deep socket or a 'longer' socket to get to them. A speed tool is really nice You reach them through holes in the metal frame

There is special place to collect dropped nuts and sockets down low - stuff a rag in there before you start work. I managed to fish them out with a magnet

The top lens comes off first and snaps into the bottom lens - if you pull the bottom one off you break the top one, or both.
