    Default How to fit xenon bulbs

    I am thinking about buying xenon bulbs for my 06 facelift and saw that changing to bulbs could be tricky due to the windscreen washer bottle because the book says you have to take it out. There must be a better way can anyone help plz

    Probably quicker and less awkward to take the bumper off.....

    3 torx screws in each wheel arch, 4 along the bonnet slam panel and the bumper will just tip forward....About 10 mins including finding the screws!

    Then 2 torx screws to remove the whole headlamp unit....2 mins.

    10 mins to put it all back together, and you've saved all the skin on every single knuckle

    Only the filler neck, not the whole bottle. Disengage retaining clamp and withdraw filler neck by pulling upwards.
