    Default Vectra C headlights

    Hello All,

    I'm thinking of changing my stock headlight bulbs to Philips Vision (H7)

    The bulbs look a nightmare to change without shredding your hands to bits ... any tip[s on how to change the headlight bulb and survive

    Cheers

    Denzo

    When I did mine my hands ended up in ribbons and my patience was tried to the limit, very worthwhile though. The washer bottle pipe just pulls straight up & off ..makes life a bit easier.but I have hands like shovels *lol*

    buy them from Halfords and see what they'll charge you to fit them. if its less than a fiver believe me (and Bainie) its gota be worth letting them do it.

    That's a very good idea. I wish I'd thought of that.

    I've put H7 Ultra White Bulbs in mine mate, and yes I cut my hands up, but thought it was worth it. If you've got massive shovels for hands you may find it a little difficult, but not too much.
