Help!!! I have no clue how to change the headlight bulb!! :o(

Hi Everyone!

Dopey girl here who can't change my headlight bulb!!

I've got a 2003 147 which I bought second hand a few months ago.
Unfortunately, there were no manuals with the car apart from the service history!

So if anyone could spare the time to give me some help, I would be EXTREMELY GRATEFUL!!!

Thank you in advance for any help!!! )

When you are under the bonnet, you will see the back of the head light clusters, there are round black caps about the roundness of a tea cup, twist them off ( they can be quite stiff )

you will have to get your head in a funny angle to look in to the lights, once you know which bulb needs replacing, pinch the 2 clips together that hold the bulb in place and it will sort of fall towards your hand.

Importantly, DO NOT touch the glass of the new bulb, something to do with the oils in our hands that weaken the glass when they get hot....or something....

hope this kind of helps
