    Default Facelift N/S/F Bulb

    Hi all,
    I am trying to change my n/s/f dipped beam bulb on my facelft 120 cdti.
    I have got access to to rear of the bulb ok.
    I just can't see how to get the bulb out of the headlight!
    The manual says take it to the dealer.
    I have looked through previous threads but they all just seem to say it just pulls out.
    I cant see any clips and the bulb wont budge if i pull at it.
    Am i missing something?
    The only thing I can see are 4 tiny torx head screws around the bulb, am I ment to dissmantle it?
    Cheers for your help.

    Im afraid if I pull at it something will break or am I just being a little girl!
    If I just pull it what actually keeps it in place then, as there are no clips or twist motion?

    I found it a tight fit I found that by almost angling it back from top to bottom it released OK then refitting I knew how to get the bulb to lock and it was far easier. I was also a bit afraid I would break something

    He has a facelift, the bulbs pull out, unlike the preface that twist out.

    there are TWO types of H7 fixings on these bulbs. One type is a twist lock cover that holds the bulbs in place and the other is as said a pushfit which then automatically locks it in place.

    Thanks all, a gud tug got it out. Not that much of a litle girl!
    The only thing is the new blub has gone in, but feels slightly loose.
    Should it be as tight as the old one. I think after driving over some bumps it may fall out.
