Bulb astray!

Bulb astray! Empty Bulb astray!

Post by jmee54 on Sun 25 Aug 2019 - 15:41

Hi all, In my infinite wisdom I decided to change my side lights to leds. This I did some months ago, but one bulb wasn't as bright as the other. Today I thought I'd investigate and see if perhaps it was the wrong way round or just duff. I was using a pair of long nosed pliers to wriggle the bulb holder out and it came but left the bulb behind. I went to grab the bulb and it slipped int the headlight and now sits there like a goldfish in a bowl. The only way I can see of getting it out is to remove the headlight or the front lens, which seems to have clips around the edge. It looks like it will be a bit of a pig to remove and I wish I had left well alone. Has anyone removed a headlight and can give me any advice/tips?

I had headlights replaced but not sure the lens comes of at all.

Haven't removed a headlight but; when upgrading my headlights I dropped a headlight bulb into the headlight unit.

I just got lazy & bought another bulb!!!

It's doing no harm where it is.

If it’s like the Twingo, which it is based on, I think the bumper has to come off to remove the headlights believe it or not!😩
