    Depends on which side

    The passenger side is quite easy
    Unclip and lift out the reservoir filler
    You can now access the cover

    The drivers side is a nightmare
    You can either unclip and remove the air filter box
    or
    Unbolt the edge of the front bumper and access from there

    However, you could simply drive into a VX dealership and claim that the indicator has stopped working properly
    Although how long this Christmas spirit will last is unknown!

    I managed to get to the lights themselves, but I couldn't find any covers for the bulbs. I managed to get to the one's for the main beam, and full beam, but for the indicator, there was nothing to take off to get access to the bulb!

    I checked the manual, and it said go to Vauxhall to get it replaced. I have some silver bulbs I want in instead, but there's no point in paying money for something I can do myself!

    The pre and post facelift are different.

    For the facelift its easier to take the bumper off
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    The holder twists off, have another grope around and you'll find it. It is easier to remove the air box or the bumper, depending on how many brave pills you've taken.

    Strange that dealerships can manage it without doing so
    I suspect, for the off side, they remove the air box

    Yes they can, but he asked for an opinion, which i gave. Its 15mins to remove the bumper, nothing broken and all completed. Everytime I have removed an air box I have somehow managed to break off one of the mounting points. Hey maybe we should just sugest what it says in the manual, all go to the dealer

    One thing I learned after replacing both headlight bulbs was to loosen off the holding clips
    At manufacture they are really tight, and there is no need for it
    When my replacment bulb failed a few weeks ago I was dreading it
    Unclipped and removed the reservior pipe
    Off with the cover
    Twisted the clip and it came out straight away

    Do you have a picture, by any chance? There's a few things which can be twisted, but I wasn't sure what they were, as they all seemed connected up together, like some sort of motor, and I didn't wanna mess with it.

    I'll just remove the airbox, I think. Removed a bumper on my old cars loads of times, so I know how to do it, and how easy it is.
