    As said above it went this morning, just had a look and what a nightmare to get to. I think I'll just take it to Halfords and let some other poor sap do it for me lol

    N/side, unclip the wash bottle filler from the slam panel and twist/pull the filler neck out. Then lift the battery/fusebox lids up out of the way.
    Unless you have very large hands should have plenty of room.

    Why would you want to do that to change the N/S headlight bulb?

    Unless of course your airbox is where the battery usually is?

    As said, just unclip the windscreen washer bottle tube.
