I'll have another go this weekend if the weather picks up. I had the splash guard off the check the bulb, but didn't notice any fasteners for the lower bumper. It's a Talladega coupÈ if it makes any difference. All this hassle to take a piece of emery to a corroded contact! You're not kidding about the Haynes manual.
