    Default Changing NSF bulbs

    I've tried a search but couldn't find the answer...

    How do you change the NSF bulbson a prefacelift? It's the dipped beam I need to change, but can't get access to it.
    Cheers

    Pull the screenwash filler neck UP
    This gives you access

    You need to unclip the Washer bottle funnel. Gently twist away the clip that holds it to the slam panel, and gently twist,turn and pull it out, its only held in by a rubber washer. This then gives you the access to the rear of the headlight.

    The filler tube is in the way, it's impossible to remove the cover without removing it!

    Yes, there are three different battery sizes on the Vectra C
    Mine is hard up against the filler tube
    The battery also has a cover, I can't even see the battery terminals on mine

    Equally, leemarksmith appears to be left handed
    Perhaps you would like to try the offside and compare!
    I find the offside quite easy now (now that I have loosened the holding clips)
    Ironically, I can change an offside buld quicker than a neaside now
