    Default Changing the Nearside headlight bulb

    Hi i have read the easiest way to do this is to pull off the screenwash filler neck?? to gain access to the headlight unit. How does this come off please?
    I have the facelift model thanks.

    Unclip the filler neck clip from the slam panel and then you can twist and pull the filler neck out.

    I also found it a bit snug on the passenger headlight,so i also take off the fuse box cover too,just gives that little bit more access.

    Just spent an hour changing the dipped, full and side lights for some MTEC halogen ones.

    Managed to do it without removing the air box but had to take the air inlet tube off in ordeer to get at the off side lights.

    Now my back aches and my wrists look like I have been self harming but at least the lights look much better
