#409986 People's Preferences For Headlight Bulbs Fiesta St180

If you're going to get an oil and filter change go to an independent garage they will be far cheaper especially if you buy your own oil

#409691 Help With Changing Bulbs

Posted by Philf1 on 14 September 2014 - 08:03 PM

No need to take the mirror itself off. What I did was move the mirror so I could slide a flat blade screwdriver in and prise the clip nearest to the window slightly down, shine a torch into the gap so you can see the clip, its the same colour as the cap. You then need to squeeze the bottom edge of the mirror cover and the black trim under it really hard until you hear it click. The cover will then look like its slightly off at the top its then just brute force to pull it back and up. Goes with an almighty crack and will scare the s**t out of you and will probably fly off onto the floor so put a cover down just in case. When you are replacing it slide it in so it is level and in line at the bottom, hook the inner clip in and push hard and it will click into place.

 

I'd been putting this off for ages cause I thought it would be really hard but once I knew about the screw driver bit it was a lot easier. Thy're all done now and hopefully never have to touch them again.

Made me laugh Lenny. Love the part where they are stuck in the bush with the bin bag tent trying to light a fire with a flint stick and the other guy says he's got a lighter, classic.

Glad we're keeping this friendly!

 

I was always told not to discuss religion or politics unless I wanted an argument, so I'm abstaining,  :)
