This is a step by step guide of how to smoke saxo MK2 lights.
Its as simple as possible because i am simple.
The commentary for each picture is mainly underneath each picture
Firstly open the bonnet and disconnect the lights.
You will be faced with this
the next pictures will show how to disconnect two of the four wires.
This will pull out
this needs to be twisted then it ill come out
The other two are easier to get out when you have got the light out.
There are three screws holding the light in
those two are easy to get at with a 10mm spanner/socket
there is another one under the brow
This is hard to get at but i used a 10mm ratchet with an extension.
You will need to remove the brow, they are attached with three clips
these are very delicate, i broke 3 of them. short trip to citroen will sort that out
With them bolts undone the light can be pulled out.
Now you can disconnect the other two wires.
this has a clip on the side that you lift then it will slide out
you will need to put a screwdriver under the clip and pull it up, mine flew 20 feet in the air and i spent the next 10mins looking for it.
Now the light should pull free
Now do the same the other side
AHHHH I\'M BLIND
Now the lights are out pull the rubber off the back, it will pull off.
Now release the spring clip and the bulb will come out.
Don\'t touch the bulb lense
Next twist the indicator bulb and pull it out
Now there are three clips around the lense of the light, pull them off with a screwdriver.
The light is now ready to be put in the oven.
Yes it does feel very wrong.
I put it in the oven on gas mark 2 for 10 minutes
when you get it out it will be very hot
I used a screwdriver to help ease the lense off
now take out the part you are going to spray
remove the indicator lense by the three clips on the back
Because there is a reflective part where the indicator bulb sits i didn\'t want to spray that so i cut out a piece of cardboard to the exact size and placed it in
now sand it all down and spray it with primer
apply three coats leaving it 15mins between each coat and sanding down between the first two coats
after leaving the primer for about 30mins apply black paint, i\'m using gloss black from halfords
I applied 3 coats with 15mins between each coat.
now its all sprayed leave it for a good hour or so to let the paint fully dry.
Put the light and lense back in the oven WITHOUT the part you just sprayed.
This will start to melt the glue. i put the oven on gas mark 2 for 5 mins
Now get it out the oven and place the part you sprayed back in
Make sure you put the indicator lense back in before you put the headlight lense back together
place the newly painted part back inside and put the headlight back together.
Put the clips back on and allow to cool.
I also put some cable ties on to ensure it stuck well
once the light has cooled down, put all bulbs back in and the rubber back on.
Now you can put the light back on the car, reattatch all connections and screw in the 3 bolts.
also clip the lower brows back on.
Heres some pictures of one light as i need to go and buy some more clips for the other brow!
its mostly common sense but this guide makes it easier.
sorry about some of the pictures but if i don\'t hold this camera completely still they all blurr.
