bulb change

How do you change the main beam and dipped beam lights in the 147 without surgery to your hands to make them smaller. Also when I did get the bulb in (new from the packet) it didn't work so am I doing something wrong?

Re: bulb change

They are a bit of a pain to do - at least the first one is, this might help tho


IIRC bulb filament should be hanging downwards with the tab on bulb upright. At least you are not doing the sidelight bulbs with broken holders

As for bulb not working it may be a duff bulb or maybe a fuse ?

And it may help to use use a mirror, I use an old motorbike mirror on a stalk which helps me to see whats going on when im replacing the bulbs. Its a lot easier.
