    Are you by any chance a 3 year old child? I can't see any way that an adult could do that job....

    my hand is about an inch and a half longer than a dvd case (length ways) and is about the same width ways on full span.

    and I assure you there is no chance my mitts would fit behind the headlights

    the hassle of being 6'6.

    Ah, but yours is a pre facelift, they're easy.

    The facelift on the other hand has no way of getting to the bulbs without either dismantling half of the
    engine bay or taking the headlights out, (unless you've got baby hands like EARLEY).

    I have done mine before in about the same time(pre facelift).When everyone said how hard it was I was shocked that it wasnt.

    Makes some sense.
    I fitted them ;last week along with sidelights and thought either im part mexican rat called speedy gonazles or people were finding changing bulbs a task beyond them

    When I changed mine I just couldn't get the leverage to twist the bulb into place - it took ages & a lot of lost skin, & I don't think my hands are that big either
