    confused headlight bulb removal

    sorry if this has been asked, but how do you remove the dipped headlight bulbs. I cant see a circlip and i've read that they twist out?? is this true? can any one shine some more light on this please. my drivers side bub has gone. I can get my hand between the airbox and the light unit but simply don't know how to remove the bulb.

    Cheers, Andy

    Facelift dip bulbs just pull straight out. NO twisting (you'll **** it up if you start twisting)

    Oh, did you pull your wire, sir? Did you? Then insert your bulb in the hole? In it? Oooh! Suits you sir!

    *cough* I'll go get my coat.

    on the non-facelift model - the bulbs twist out. The drivers side twists anti clockwise. as you look from the rear of the car. Simply grab the black thing (sorry i don't know hat its called) and twist it. The bulb and mount will then become free and there should be enough play in the wires to bring bulb level with the top of your air box. This should give you more room to changethe bulbs over.

    There are a few diagrams in the owners manual.

    Thanks for the replies. I've just changed mine now.
