    Default Changing o/s headlight bulb?

    My o/s drivers side headlight bulb has just gone, I seem to remember it is a lot harder to replace then the n/s...is this right?

    If so, can someone let me know the best (easiest) way to change the bulb ie. do I have to remove the air filter?

    Thanks

    think the the best way is to remove the air box mate if you cant get your hand in or you can take the bumper off to take the light off what is a 15 mins job

    Find a young kid with small hands, give them a few bags of sweets and you have a very cheap way of changing your bulbs without dismantling the car

    That's great, I already bought a torx screwdriver when I fitted the k&n!
    I can give the filter a check at the same time
