    Default Changing head light bulb Dip beam

    Hi went out yesterday and warning came on for dip beam bulb driver side .
    Went to change it and all i can do is get the plastic cap off
    Presume you remove the airbox to change it as there is no way my hands can fit in the gap without removing it
    or is there an easier way as so far have found the vec to be a pain in the backside for routine maintenance

    Yep...that's it.

    Did mine a few weeks back - both sides in fact.
    It's a 55 reg Facelift Club spec car........didn't find it to bad...The lamps/bulbs are the standard Halogen types...

    Cheers

    either remove the airbox or take the front bumper off,only 12 screws & clips holding it on,just fitted HID's,it was a whole lot handier,think you need to be a gynaecologist to get you hand in there,passenger side at least you can lift the battery box lid & remove the washer bottle spout

    Removing the bumper is just as quick. Also less likely to put the ECU fault light on if you forget to connect the air flow meter when finished or testing the HIDs.

    I found that just removing the top of the air box and moving it,and the ducting,out of the way,gave me enough room to fit the bulb when I changed over to HID's. FELIXX.
