England 2007 on Cooper S side light bulbs

Hi,
I'm trying to replace the side light bulbs on my 07 Mini. I have managed to get the black covers off and disconnect the wires but can't seem to get to the actual bulb. Can anyone help please??

You need to twist the bulb holder and it will come out, but sometimes if they have been in there for a long time they are stiff/seize, might need a bit of WD40, the bulb itself then just pulls out of the holder
Helpful tip: It tells you in the drivers handbook how to do it.
