Re: V40 Headlight Removal

Clive,

Just replaced mine 2 wekkes ago.

Remove screws of inside wheel covers, 2 scews on both sides.
Remove headlight washers if any.
Reach the plasic locks and push them from behin the front bumper. The enrire
bumper should be able to move a few inches towards you, bearly enough to
replace the head light.

Cheers,

Martijn

Here is part of my not-yet-finished how-to page that describes the steps
I took to get the headlights out of my MY99 V40. I haven't taken a close
up look at the phase2 bumper, but this might help:

(there is NO page 2 yet)

greetings,

Arnoud

Thanks to both of you, I have printed Arnouds instructions so I am well
prepared for a try tomorrow. The one I am doing is RHD but I am sure
that will make little difference. Will post my progress. Cheers

Do you guys know if the New Style Sexy Looking Clear V40 headlights (I
think from 2001 onward) will fit the mk1 v40 (98 r reg)??

Are they a direct replacement or are there modifications that need
doing?

Has anyone done it?
