Mail Order Customers:
  *
Our carrier DHL is operating near normally across the world (including in Italy). Allow an extra day for delivery (6 days for Australia & New Zealand), just in case. However, regular international postal services can have additional delays, and are not recommended for anything required within 6 weeks.
  * For the UK only, Royal Mail are delivering the vast majority of orders on time according to our data, but is experiencing higher levels of staff absences, so there may some local delays.
  * We will be working normally and have a large warehouse full of parts that will help keep your car on the road even if many of the parts manufacturers are now closing.
Workshop Customers:
  *
Following government guidance, we are open as usual. Taking your vehicle to a garage for repairs is a permitted activity (safety) as long as you observe the social distancing rules. We have strict social distancing processes internally and disinfect daily (not least because we have staff in vulnerable groups). Our mechanics wear gloves at all times and we will disinfect your vehicle with our Zaflora sprays on handing back to you. We would respectfully ask you to show our staff the same courtesy. We also have full amount contactless payment systems.
  * To help those in self isolation, we are now offering a free Collect & Return Service of up to 30 miles, so if you have any servicing due in the next 3 months now might be good time to get it out of the way without even having to open your front door. We will disinfect your car on collection and return.
  * MOTs due for renewal from 30 March will be extended for six months. However, you are still legally obliged to keep your vehicle in a safe and roadworthy condition, so if you need to use your car in this period, it is still recommended to get one done.

:alt

Bulb and bulb holder removed.

:alt

Replace the bulb, part number 10556890.

Check the bulb works before refitting in the headlamp, if you leave the light on it also makes it it easier to see what you are doing when replacing the bulb. It is important to make sure this bulb is fully home and does not rattle in its holder as this will cause the bulb to blow again in a very short period of time, a neatly cut piece of insulating tape wrapped round the bulb holder will help to stop any rattles but you dont need much and the bulb needs to be fully home or it will overheat. Now reverse the process above to refit the bulb.
