ummmm....i'm confused, the clips hold the lamp assembly together, the park light should be in a holder that twists and pops out allowing you to replace the lampYeah ... not the case here. Sadly I will have to remove the whole assembly to be able to access the screws or whatever that holds the plastic housing in place. The bulb is like right there and it is apparent that it just pulls out from the front but to do this you have to be able to get the cover off. the clip on the back of the assembly when unclipped doesn't have the bulb attached it just unclipps the assembly for removal. (very stupid design) will cost $85 to have a shop do it. Didn't want to buy a shop manual just to replace a $6 bulb .... but seems no one knows how to do this task so guessing I'll get a manual if I can't figure out after taking off the fender and or bumper ....lol <-- lame
So from this picture the small white clip to the lower left of the headlight bulb/socket is the parking lamp clip. On mine that clip will unclip when pinched and it comes off however there is no bulb attached just the female/Male end of the clip and if it twists off mine doesn't seem to.??I'm confused (not difficult), sometimes it sounds like the bulb has just fallen out the push fit holder
never got the iO pajero here, and the GV is about 2 mins, 1 x 10mm head screw, 3 push pins and i can get to the park light and the fog lamp on mine. Annoying to have to take the inner guard panel out to do it, but not as bad as the H4's on the air intake side for my big paws.Oh, they do, the SQ series were sold in New Zealand - doesn't matter which market they were built for - the procedure for replacement of the bulbs doesn't change.
Did you get the Mitsubishi Pajero iO there - on that vehicle replacement of the turn signal bulb requires removal of the headlamp assembly - it's actually more challenging than the GV - and yes, I own one of those also.
That sounds like a JB (which I also have) not the SQ.never got the iO pajero here, and the GV is about 2 mins, 1 x 10mm head screw, 3 push pins and i can get to the park light and the fog lamp on mine.

As far as I am aware there is no manual for this car unless you want the official Suzuki manual, neither Haynes or Chilton ever made one since this car was only in production for eight years, maybe they have one now idk.That is what I assumed too but when I pinched the clip it was only a dis connect to the housing. I expected a bulb to be attached to the clip but that was not the case and the part that the clip attaches to does not twist out like the break lights do it is molded to the housing.If it were that simple ... I wouldn't be here asking if anyone knew how to remove the light assembly. It's a 1999 esteem but it doesn't seem anyone here has my year and model.It's just a parking lamp bulb so it's really very trivial to me at this point and it's winter here in Idaho so I'm not very likely to work on my car in the snowy cold weather for I haven't a garage to work in so I'm just trying to find some information for when I do go to fix the issue. But it's looking more and more that I should just buy a shop manual ... lol
