Turn the steering fully towards the side you need to change the bulb on.You'll see an inspection hatch in the Wheel Arch Liner.Turn the clip on the bottom and push the panel upwards to remove it.It's fairly confined in there.Take off the rubber cover and release the Spring Clip holding in the bulb.When inserting the new bulb make sure it's lined up correctly.There's a raised spot on the metal base of the bulb and this fits into a cut-out in the Headlight casing.

Just to summarise,remove the wiring plug first,then take a closer look at the retaining clip,if this clip is dislodged into the back of the head light problems arise..

That is a tight squeeze, i changed the drivers side but the passenger side has a tube going up in front of the opening on the left hand side, couldnt get my hand past it. The tube doesnt appear to be attached as its an open top but it is secured to the body work, any one know what this is?
