Problem is: the space is extremely tight to use force, I couldn't find any spring releases, and I spent goddamn 1hour just trying to get the stupid connector outta the rubber socket!
I know getting the bulb outta the connector is easy (just 2 clips) but the only thing is to get the connector out.
And the high beam is the same...
And as for the fog lights... I haven't looked yet but I might just ask while I'm at it... is it hard to remove too?
Mate they are bastards thats for sure!
I have replaced the bulbs in my girl and it helps if you have long skinny fingers with an extra set of joints
The spring release is on either side (horizontal that is) and you have to push your fingers into the fubber boot a bit and give the connector a damn good squeeze and wiggle it off. Thats the single most difficult bit. Then remove the rubber boot and then you can see what your doing from there.
For me it got to the stage where I had to remove the battery to get to the drivers side bulbs, and remove the top of the airbox for the passengers side, not a well designed set up but thats all been fixed now. Airbox and plumbing removed, battery is in the boot, and a big K&N pod sits where it was. Can access all the globes easy now, oh.... and she does go a tad quicker as well
Good luck with it mate.
