    yeah you need small hands and fingers to get to them, but it is possible.

    i've had the same things happen to me, you'll probably find that the bulb is on it's way out

    Yep, just grab the neck (make sure there isn't fluid in it) and just pull it up. It'll pop off from the reservoir.

    No not really, only the washer neck to remove. Nothing on the other side. I changed both too.

    Piece of cake to change, took me all of 5 mins this morning so im very happy, even more so, when i found a spare bulb to fit hiding in the kitchen, I also took my front wheels off to check my brakes cos im still not happy with them, swore at them a few times and gave the caliper mount a small bash with my hand on both sides of the car and the brakes are a million times better, i must have the magic touch



    but what the hell is the white plastic box next to the light bulb holders, it turns and almost pulls out, but the whole interior of the light unit moves too
