    Default Side lights??

    I've just bought new side light bulbs but what i need to know is there a large cap that screws off and reveals the main beam bulb is thet how you get to the side light bulb or is it further underneath the headlight as i can't see down the back of the headlight very well??

    The pre-facelift are no problem, so I presume you have a facelift model. The passengers side will be easier if you remove the filler tube for the washer bottle. The drivers side though, you might need to take the air box out for. I changed my indicators and that was a pain but they are the hardest bulbs to get to. Use a small mirror (raid the ladies make up) and you should be able to see.

    After farting about for ages with mine, I undid the 2 torx screws in the wheel arch and the one at the front of the engine bay holding the bumper in, and bent the bumper forward slightly. That gave me enough room to get at all 3 screws holdng the headlamp unit in. I just undid all of those, wiggled the whole unit out and changed the bulbs. 15 min each side, including putting it back together.
