Default Headlight Low Beam Bulb Replacement

Hi Guys,

Feel like a numpty posting about this, but it seems the info isn't in the manual or on here and if i'm stuck, someone else will be too at some point!

How do you change the bulbs in the headlights ???

I have a low beam one out and it is in a tricky position, it wobbles with finger presure, but does it twist, is there a clip, how is it electrically connected etc ???

P.s. How daft is it that the manual says to go to dealer to change a bulb! What do the french do ???

Ta,
Lee

What headlights does your car have? Makes a difference I think as xenons have a different fitting
