Mk2 side lights

Morning all, can you change the above without removing side panels ? Haynes manual says remove side panels (looks tricky) and do these fit ?
thanks for any advice

Really you have to take the side panels off.
It's a 3-D jigsaw!

I have recently replaced my side lights for LED ones, much brighter.  I took the side panels, did look a bit of a daunting task, but was surprisingly straightforward, just don't do what I did, and snap the bottom lug.  I then noticed that when I came to do the second side, it had already been snapped by dealer fitting radiator guard.

I checked the forum for information before attempting this, and the info on here was spot on as always.
