EF XR6. How do you replace high beams?

Hi there all,
Does anyone know an easy way to replace the high beam globes on my XR6 (EF)? .I've taken the plastic shroud off the front of the engine bay,but there is very little clearance to get your hands in to remove the bulb.Surely you don't have to remove the bumper assembly!
Any comments?

The ED ones i had on my car were easy to change just pulled that dust cap off the back of the head light however there was a lot of clearance there, EF/EL must have less clearance behind headlight. sorry cant really help you.

just twist and remove the black cover then you will see how o disconnect it.

It's not that tight. It is held in by a clip that earth's the globe. unclip that but leave it con the hinge, and the globe will come out backwards. Should only take 15min to change both sides.

The black cover you are talking about is on the low beams (outer).I'm talking about changing the inner lamps.It is horrendous.I can barely get my hand in the gap.

The outer(low beam) has a hard plastic threaded rear cover, the inner(high beam) has a rubber boot that covers the rear.

I agree, I wanted to replace my globes with blue halogens . Low Beams were bad enough but inner globes can barely get fingers in there let alone manouvre em.hence am still waiting to complete the job.

I took the black top cover off and also undid the top retaining screws of the bumperbar which allowed me to pull it forward slightly. It is still a damn tight fit though
