    Default Changing Headlight Bulbs

    Any advice on how to change the headlight bulb on a 55 facelifted Vectra?
    Had a quick look and seems nigh on impossible to get my hand down due to packed engine bay!
    please advise!

    Check the How to, basically unclip and pull off screenwash filler tube, lift battery and fusebox cover, gives a bit more space. On driver's side taake complete airbox off, far easier.

    i believe the only way to get to the main on a facelift is to loosen the bumper, then unbolt the headlamp to gain access. the dip can be done in the same way or by unclipping the washer bottle filler neck from the slam panel, then twisting the tube from the bottle.

    this might help http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15060

    Managed to do the dip on the drivers side without taking anything off...
    Tight but I managed it......

    Only got small hands....

    The main may be more difficult.....
