    Default Headlight Bulb Replacement

    Hi guys,

    I have a Vectra C 04 (Non facelift) and was wondering how to replace the bulbs, I can access the bulbs ok and have removed the rubber black cover, but im unsure how i actually unscrew the bulbs that are already there and refit the new ones I have (H7 bulbs), I have already searched the forums and found info explaining how to gain access to the bulbs but not much info on how they are removed. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Many Thanks

    Its a sort of twistlock spring clip holding the headlight bulbs in. Disconnect the wire plug, and then holding the top and bottom of the silver clip twist it anticlockwise.

    if i can remeber right you remove the plug on the bulb and then push and turn the fitting around the base of the bulb, it will only turn one way, remove the fitting then take out the bulb. They come off very easy but can be a little awkward when refitting. Just remeber which way the holder turns when removing and do the reverse when refitting, its amazing how you forget which way you removed it when it comes to putting it back on lol
    I think the main beam bulbs are screwed in with torx screws if you ever needed to remove them, very easy to do.
    Oh and you need to remove the washer bottle neck to change the passenger side bulbs, also very straight forward.
    Hope this helps..
