    Default Facelift SRI Driver's Side Indicator Bulb

    Hi Guys,

    I realise that this has been done to death but here goes....

    My driver's side indicator bulb has failed and needs replacing, I have removed the airbox however I still cannot get access to the rear of the bulbholder.

    How much of job is it to remove the headlight unit so I can change the bulb, and what's involved?

    Cheers

    Dan

    Think someone said loosen bumper then headlight, seems a lot of hassle to change a bulb, but I have facelift one so I have it coming, already uprated dip bulbs lol

    As said. Headlight needs to come out as the inner wing prevents the indicator bulb holder from being fully removed to change the bulb.

    Thanks Guys,

    Any hints on how to get the bumper off?

    I've removed the two screws attaching it to the wheel arch liner, the two underneath securing the driver's side to the undertray and the four bolts holding the grille in place put I can't seem to get it to budge.

    Do I need to entirely remove the bumper or can I get enough clearance by removing a few choice bolts? I'm worried about giving it a good yank in case I break something .

    Possibly a rhetorical question but who designs a car where you have to strip the front end to replace, what is essentially a consumable item .

    As always any hints/tips would be greatly appreciated!

    Cheers

    Dan

    mate

    as long as you have removed the 4 on top round the grille

    and the 4 under the wheel arches

    you have to pull the bumper forward and out if that makes sense (from the wheel arch)

    Re: the two screws in the wheelarch liner. When you've slackened off the upper one, push it inwards and then continue to take it out. This unlocks the bumper from the wing by means of a slide plate.
