Hi,

How do I get the headlight bulbs out? I'm trying to but they're wrapped up in a wire, and will only allow me to lever it back a tiny amount before it springs back?!

Thanks,

Dan.

Have something to contribute?

they are held in with a spring loaded clip. you will need to unhook it at the top of the bulb holder (bit fiddly) and then the bulb will be free to come out.

I've had a headlight out for about 2 months now... :unsure: (drivers side), mainly because I find it a nightmare changing them :lol:

I would get it sorted ASAP, as the Police are now giving out 20 fines for non-working bulbs, and the FPN HAS to be stamped by an MOT licensed repairer.
