If it is, it's definitely a diy job. A bit fiddly but 10 mins max. You just need to take off the air intake next to the OSF, move the screenwash tube to the side on the NSF and twist off the grey plastic bulb housing caps from each side. Then you can reach past and get access to each sidelight bulb holder. Just twist about 45 degrees and it'll come out the hole...replace bulbs then reassemble in reverse.

Ot take it to Halfords, and let their fitter change it for you, watch carefully, and you will know how to do it in the future. And if they break anything, they have to pay repair costs.

God no....totally not needed and they'll just !Removed! it up anyway

To be fair you sometimes get one with fairy like hands and the dexterity of a contortionist, i sure the french have a wicked sense of humor and deliperatly stuff as much down besides the headlamps as they can

Well i managed to do it ... painfully,

Not impressed... with the output of the bulbs i replaced them with. i wanted a white sidelight, i got a white spotlight due to the design of the current bulb.

Waiting for some replacements off the bay
