    Default facelift right hand dipped headlight.07 model

    right hand dipped head light bulb has failed, so looked at my hand book, and i dont believe what i am reading.it states that..."as the head light must be removed, entrust bulb replacement on the right hand side to a work shop. we recommend your vauxhall authorised dealer."
    do this mean i have to pay the extortionate hourly rate , just to have the head light bulb changed or is there another way without removing head light.
    i hope some members can come up with any suggestions.
    i thank you in anticipation of your replys. cheers bill..

    either very small hands and thin bendy arms or a trip to casualty,or just whip the bumper off and remove headlight (15 minute job)
    have a look in how to section for removing bumper .hth

    Or remove the airbox. Thats what I did. The cable ties with the wiring just pull up away from the airbox, then you need a 7mm socket or nut driver to remove the rubber hose with the sensor. The airbox itself is just clipped in place.

    thanks guys for your quick replies, will have a look in the day light at the 2 methods suggested, removing air box sounds a good option so as i dont disturb the head light position.but if the bumber seems easier i might go for that....thanks bill.

    up date, because of freezing weather,took the car to auto electricians, mentioned both methods sugested on here on how to get to bulb.
    he knew all about it and he prefers airbox method,
    he had the bulb changed and bonnett shut ready to drive away.
    start to finish total time 10mins, cost including bulb £10 .
    thanks again to both your replies i knew what questions to ask, and was confident with the knowledge of the auto eleccy.
    well worth a tenner. cheers bill.

    It can be done in situ, I even managed an HID install in place, all I took off was the lid of the airbox. It's tight and a lot is done by feel, but it's OK.
