Default How to replace front Gen1 sidelight bulbs

Dumb question but how do I access the front sidelight and indicator lights ? I cannot see any screws securing the clear lens and there does not appear to be any access to the rear of the lens. Only thing I can see is perhaps removing the snake eye lens will gain access to rear for bulb replacement or is there a trick to prising the lens off ?

there is a small cover over the screws you need to flick off with a knife.

I think it will be different with the Oz delivered GT's.

Yes - just checked but couldn't see any close up pics....

Thx guys but yeah the Oz delivered car has different front lights, the actual lights are not on the corner they are on the front part just under the snake eye lens, the only thing I can see is to perhaps gain access to the rear of the lights by removing the snake eye lens but I am sure there must be a simpler way.
