How-to remove 147 Headlight ?
Had another (not) so pleasent Service with my local friendly Alfa Dealer.
I had pointed out to them that the off-side front fog light had probally blown. They phone me up during the day, to confirm that no light was coming from the bulb (no $h|t sherlock). And Quoted me £52 to change the bulb, (bearing in mind I'm paying £350 for a 24,000 Mile service), I told them that they were having a laugh, and i'd do it myself.
Anyhow, a trip to halfords and a tenner later for 2 (buy 1 get 1 free) h1 bulbs, i soon relised that the bulb had not blow at all. the +ve cable at the back had chaffed the -ve and shorted it out, having blown the 15amp fuse.
Because i trust my friendly Local Alfa dealer (not) I might as well fix the ruddly thing my self. Every other fault I take the car in for always goes back a couple or three times before they mange to fix it.
So... long story Short any idea how to remove the off-side headlight unit (RHS sat in car) ?, It has 1 bolt on top of unit, but i'm guessing the bumpers gotta come off ?
H E L P !!
Need to cut the -ve and solder it to the bulb holder
Any help, is very much apprehicated.
