F******g Bulb change (especially sidelight)
Ok a rant really but feel free to join in!
who the hell designed the bulb holder arrangement on the GT? he clearly had the hands wrists and forearms of a small girl or is related (closely) to Mr Tickle...
The main and dipped H7's are do-able with without too much of a Faff, but the retaining clips can be difficult to re-locate afterwards , two went beautifully and in a classic Alfa fashion two were a fight of gargantuan proportions with heroism and derring- do on my part and a stubborn and quite frankly impressive position of non co-operation by said retaining clips...! despite repeating exactly the same steps.
located after a while with hand contortions and a mirror which due to the very sunny day was fun..I think I just about have the sight back in my left eye.
now onto those B*****D H6w's awful awful awful design..much swearing and frustration and even one bulb falling out into the plastic housing ,fished out with a screwdriver with some sellotape on the end..(other brands of sticky tape are available) eventually got them both in and all good.
The H1 fogs are easy when compare to the sides..
feeling quite pleased with myself now and think the next time will take about 5 mins a bulb, there is definitely a ''Knack'' but you have to do it yourself once or twice to work it out..no wonder halfrauds looked worried when I went to have a look at their bulb selection!
anyway all error free 100w led bulbs fitted and they look great, bought on ebay from a company called Argo City, the whole lot with postage about £13...phoned them up to check a couple of things and must say the couldn't have been nicer.
will pop some pictures up tomorrow but they are a nice little upgrade giving the front a much more modern look.
