    if its the headlight one - disconnect the washer bottle neck - move it to one side and remove the cover
    replace bulb -TEST ITS WORKING then refit washer bottle neck and cover
    stand back and admire your amazing handywork

    if its the drivers side - prepare to bleed all over your car attempting to replace a bulb

    As said above. If offside, either front bumper partially off to remove headlight, or partially remove airbox to gain access.

    Either way, its a PITA (or hands if you do it via the airbox removal route) I still have the scars to prove it when I changed the headlight bulbs.

    Default Sidelight bulb.

    The airbox out route is easier IMHO.

    Just make sure you don't try to start the car or even turn the ignition on with the MAF sensor plug removed or you'll give yourself an error code or worse.

    A little bit of vaseline makes it much easier to slide the airbox mounts back onto the body clips.

    I did the indicators and side lights on mine last week, took about an hour all in. Loosened the front bumper and removed headlights.

    I opted for find someone with very small hands to do it for me, it worked a treat without having to remove anything at all!

    I just about managed it on my old prefacelift but still had to remove loads of bits.
    On the facelift, I even had to use pliers once I had the headlight out and disconnected. Blimmin sausage fingers!
