    Default Missing headlamp bolt?

    Changed the candles on my car yesterday and noticed the bottom fixing bolt is missing from nearhand side headlamp unit giving me a severe case of floppyness!How do you get access to put the bolt back if you have hands that are larger than a 2 year olds? Can't seem to pull the whole light unit out as it fouls on the wing and front metalwork.Any ideas?

    As Ninja said, it's a bumper off job. Undo the three Torx screws under each wheel arch, then the two rivert clip things on the top of the bumper where the bonnet meets. Then you can just pull the bumper forwards, without taking it completely off, to get access to the headlight bolt.

    Oh, forgot to say. Before you're able to pull the bumper forward, you have to grab the bumper where it meets the wheel arch, and pull it carefully, but with a good bit of force, to unclip it off from the wing.
