    We recommend you give us £80 for a bulb is more like what Vx means.

    Off the top of my head I'd say its look behind the bumper and take out the fog unit, should just be a case off click click after that.

    hi mate, i did one not so long ago - its easy peasy - twist open the fog lamp cover on the base of the foglamp, flick open the clasps, gently remove bulb - its on a cord connecter type thing with a plastic protective case, pop in new bulb (£3.50 from local car part shop)

    pop it back together job done.

    (i did actually phone the dealer first and spoke to a mechanic/technician who told me to do it myself)

    Just about the easiest bulb change that I had ever done on a Vectra!!! I thought that I had read about the bumper coming off etc. Mine is the facelift version.

    You might need to jack the car up slightly so you can get your head under to see what you are doing. Also an idea to check the plug which supplies power to the fog light unit for corrosion while you are there as mine was so dirty it wasn't making a good connection & needed a good clean up.

    depends what your vec undertray is like. Mine is an 08 SRI with no access panel at all. I have to remove the bumper to get access to my foglight unit

    Not long changed my fog lights for HID's and had to remove bumper as the undertray was in the way
    Already replaced:-
    Alternator,
    Drilled/Grooved Discs & Pads, Eibach Springs, EGR Valve, 50W HID's 6000k, K&N Panel Filter, LED footwell & boot lights
