    Default Sidelight bulbs & coolant light on dash

    Couple of things,

    firstly my sidelight/parking light bulb has gone on my passenger side headlight, I've looked in the owners manual and it says that you've to remove the headlamp to replace this bulb??
    Is this true?, n if so how is it done? Is it a garage job?

    Also, a couple of mornings when I've gone to start the car the coolant light has come on, it's been very cold -4. But during the day when the car has been left parked for hours then gone out to start the car - no warning light? Is it just because of the very cold exterior temp that's causing this?

    Not changed the sidelight bulbs but the headlight bulbs, depending on which side the battery or air box needs to be removed.

    Have you checked the coolant level when cold?

    You can change the passenger light bulbs (excluding indicator bulb) by removing the filler tube for the wash bottle. Just unclip it from the slam panel and wiggle it out of the bottle. It mentions this in both my 2003 and 2007 handbook.

    Is your coolant slightly above the KALT/COLD marking on the side of the bottle when the engine is cold (as per the handbook info)?
