  • how hard is it to change a bulb in the passenger headlight? plus a few of other Q's

    vx pointed out the side light in the passenger headlight was out, and would like £45 to replace it so if i was to order the bulb myself how hard would it be to change?,
    They said you have to remove the whole headlight which i guess means removing the bumpers? which i don't want to do bearing in mind it took a few days to realise where the engine is....

    also whilst i'm here does anyone know the price for a replacement bulb, the standard halogen type for the afl unit (i'm not interested in buying ultra fancy bright white tinted soon to be mot failure tat from the web (no offence)) i just want standard..

    .... and if you've kept on reading this far i have the afl headlights so is there a switch to change them to LHD, as i shall be setting sail (on a train) to la france in a few weeks?

    much love

    If you have small enough hands you can do it. Read the cars manual, it shows ya how to do it without removing the bumper

        Ive changed all of my bulbs, literally every bulb. I dropped the bumper, had them all changed and done in about an hour. Not bad for a first timer

        Since your bulb has gone it's a good reason to upgrade to some Mtecs

                Fog bulbs the easiest. Lay on the floor, put your hand under the bumper to the back of the foglight, twist the unit (only twists one way) then pull the unit out. 5 minute jobby

                Let me know if you want some help if you decide to do it.
