    Default Headlight removal and installation

    I've managed to get 2 headlights with black surround now, but I have no idea how to remove old ones or fit new ones.
    I've gone through the how2 section but I can't find anything, only facelift bulb removal.

    Does anyone know how to remove the Vectra-c headlights and fit new ones (same bulb type)? Do I have to do something with leveling etc?

    Thanks
    Dan

    yeah bumper off, as Bainie said after that it's pretty simple. Just don't have the ignition on as it doesn't calibrate properly.

    So I will need to take the bumper off (explained in fog surround How2)
    then its a simple case of unscrewing old lights, take bulbs out, and screw knew ones it?
    Whats this about calibration?

    They are easy to adjust when you have replaced them, just leave the ignition off when you do it and they will be fine , just may need a slight tweak to get the beam height right ..
