    if you havent got small girly hands ,then either its taking the washer bottle funnel off ,our if drivers side ,remove air box top .
    then twist or pull back covers off .
    extreme cases its a remove bumper and headlight

    not much fun if you have to do on a motor way ...nothing is simple about the vectra lol

    Depends how big your hands are. It is possible to do by removing the airbox from the drivers side and the screeen wash filler neck on the passenger side, but there isn't much room and it all has to be done by feel.

    It's usually just as easy to remove the front bumper and take the lights out!
    There is a post in the how to section for removing the front bumper (I think it may be part of the air condenser replacement how to)

    Why would you even try to change a sidelight bulb on a motorway?
