    Default Changing bulbs.....

    How hard is it to change the driver side bulbs!!!!!!!

    Had a guy in wanting his headlight and side light bulbs replaced and everyone pointed him in my direction.........

    After a lot of swearing and almost an hour i had changed them and got a few quid tip from the guy.

    There's hardly any room to move and if you have big hands like me it's impossible!!

    Great car for slashing your wrists on though

    just ping the airbox up out of it's rubber mounts and it'll give you enough room....and there's no tools needed either..

    Next time, remove the airbox top first, as it gives you just that little bit more room...You do still however, cut your hands to bits.

    did mine last week and took the airbox out completely. do not remove the rubber pipe on the bottm of the airbox coz its b'strd to get back in. i also did the headlight hight adjusting mod at the same time which i have got to say makes a big difference when your headlights are clean.Haha. gonna do the airbox mod when i get afilter(standard) this week and also do an oil and filter change while im there as its due its mot at the end of the month.

    I take it it just goes back in easy enough?

    It's one thing removing something and an even bigger job putting it back!!!

    there may be a few sweary words, just make sure the front air pipe is connected properly, but its still easier than wrist slashing
