    I find persistence and swearing helps then nothing needs to be removed, although airbox out is easier on the hands, battery sides easy anyway...

    That allen bolt is for the fog light beam height adjustment, not to aid bulb changing.

    Bumper off method for me too, btw (unless it's just the nearside then just remove the washer bottle tube). Been down the route of trying to do it via airbox removal. Thankfully the scratch marks on the back of my hands have finally healed up.
