COVID-19 Coronavirus Message Updated: 8th July
Mail Order Customers:
  *
Our carrier DHL is operating near normally across the world. Allow an extra day for delivery (2 days for Australia, 6 days for 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. However, we are beginning to see supply delays from factory lockdowns around the world.
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). In the circumstances, we have had to close our waiting room. 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.
  * MOTs due for renewal from 30th March to 31st July 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 strongly recommended to get one done.

:alt

First you need to open the bonnet, the release is on the drivers side under the dash.

Next you need to remove this outer cover, on the left hand side of the car it is best to unscrew the inner wheel arch cover to give more access.

Turn the cover anti clockwise to release it.

Unplug the connector on the back of the bulb.

Move connector "A" out of the way and you now need to undo the clip that retains the bulb. If you look at the picture you will see two loops at each end of the clip, to release you need to push them gently forward and then away from the bulb, towards the sides of the headlamp unit.

:alt

Now you can remove the bulb, part number 14145090, take note that the tab on the bulb is EXACTLY vertical at the top and both the terminals are one one above the other. If you get this wrong the beam pattern will be incorrect. To refit the bulb reverse the process above.
