    changing headlight bulbs came with evolution, clearly havnt evolved the brain power to figure out how to do it,

    seriously? have a look and use your head and a pair of long nose pliers

    useful contributions in this thread so far :rolls: the nonsense : sense ratio made even more apparent as always.

    anyway... this should point you in the right direction.
    Now you've gotta remove 1 T20 Torx screw and 2 10mm nuts from each wheel arch.











    Note that this is taken from another tutorial so in the last pic, you wont need a screw driver, just remove the cover fitted to the back of the headlamp.

    With this ease of access, changing the bulb should not be a problem.

    Yes, it's a pain, there aren't many other options.

    After you have the cover off, pull off the connector on the back of the bulb. The retainer is a pain to remove, it unclips from the top by pushing towards the front of the headlight and to the side. No need to remove the bumper and headlight. Headlight only needs to come out to change sidelight bulbs (although it is possible to change them with headlight in if you have small hands).
