Angry How to remove and replace side marker indicator

Hello guys,

My name is Tony and I am new here, can anyone help me?
I was parked up outside my home and found that some one had annoyingly gone down the side of my car scraping it and took out the side marker indicator.
I have a replacement but need to know how to remove the old one and replace it with the new, the indicator is situated above the vent on the wing, I can get it partially out but don't want to force it in case I cause more damage.
My Car is a 2006 4.2L V8 XK.

Hope you can help, thanks in advance.

Tony.

On 2013 Vert I popped out the U S side markers with a putty knife (very carefully) so as not to damage the finish and plugged in European side markers by apply pressure and pounding softly with my fist. took about ten minutes maybe less.

Thanks for the reply Ralphwg, the Side markers on my car are set in as part of the side vent on the wing, its kind of set in to the top of the vent, its not the oval shaped marker indicator that's set into the wing like on the older model.

The turn signal indicator repeater lamps are located in each front fender and can be removed by
sliding the lamp assembly rearwards and releasing the front edge from the fender.

This is from the workshop manual. In reading it, it seems off, as I thought you slid it forward, and lifted the rear portion. Regardless, you press it on one direction to release it.

About 1.5 years ago, mine decided to break and come out by itself. Here's a photo, you can see the clip.

Aonsaithya that's exactly what I was looking for, thankyou for the picture, now I have an idea of how it fits and clips in.

Lots of thanks, I really appreciated all the help from everyone.

Tony.

No problem! Pulling plastic bits apart is always unpleasant, so I took it exactly for future reference. As can be seen, the white collar on mine was broken, which was why it didn't stay in. Unfortunately that white part is not available separately, so my indie glued it back together, and it has stayed put since. We'll see what happens when the indicator bulb goes and the light needs to be removed...
