    Default How can I replace the front turn signal bulbs?

    I can't believe I can't find a way to do it. I have a prefacelift, with xenon and AFL. How can I replace them?

    I tried rotating the plastic that sits right behind the bulb, but that is one piece with the headlight, it can't be turned.

    I tried removing the back cover, but I can't get to the bulb.

    Any ideas?

    You wont like this... You have to cut it away with a stanley knife or such and change the bulb, then you need the Vx service/repair kit to seal it afterwards....

    You're joking right?

    The fact is that I purchased a pair of silver bulbs that I wanted to replace the orange ones. If this is the only way I can do it, I think I can live with the orange ones for now.

    No. In the facelift, you simply have to remove the bumper, then the headlight units, then replace!

    Can you also do the driver side by removing the airbox? (At least in the CDTI 150 facelift)?

    I need to do this as i have an intermittent on that side - the bulb hasn't gone it just occasionally goes open circuit. It happened on the LH side recently and I cured it by bending the contacts in the bulb holder slightly. On that occasion I had the bumper off to replace the outside air temp sensor so was easy.
