    Default fitting new bulbs

    Just bought some philips +80 bulbs and yes i know theres a how 2 about it but theres some conflicting posts in there so i was wondering if this was the best way

    remove the airbox and washer bottle, possibly the battery too to get proper access, rather than remove the headlights etc as described in the how 2

    hi
    its a small gap to fit the bulbs but you will need to remove washer bottle neck(just pull out) and if you can just try and move the air intake pipe to one side(should just pull of) no need to remove headlights
    should only taake about 5mins

    for facelifts it actually 50/50 on if it's easier to remove the lamps or struggle around the airbox etc...it's all down to how small your hands are..

    As your profile says an 06 model, I'm assuming you're talking about a facelift model here? If so, then it is a case of bumper loosened and lights off from what people have posted elsewhere. It is possible without taking the bumper off, but it's almost just as easy to loosen the bumper and do it that way.
