I discovered a main beam bulb had blown on my 145 last night so I stopped off and got a replacement thinking hubby could do it for me but I actually did it myself this afternoon :D :D

I know this may seem small and trivial to some people but I've never changed a car bulb before and its great to be able to say I'm now able to do something I never have before.

Its being able to do the little things in life that give me a sense of accomplishment :cool:

It's your skinny fingers that make you bulb-swap queen. :)

Having just today changed a dip beam bulb on my 147....... I know that you are now a fully qualified auto engineer :cool:

Who is it that designs those bits of twisted wire that hold the bulbs in :confused::mad: .....


they're like those wire puzzle things out of a Christmas cracker :mad:

Well done Glenda :cool: :cool:

Well done Glenda!!
:cool:
I'd keep quiet about it though, otherwise you'll end up with loads of 147/156 drivers outside your house wanting you to swap their bulbs!!
:cheese:

Well done. After reading how difficult it was on a 147 I took mine to the garage.

Saying that, my local indy did it for free (including the bulb), so you can't say better than that

I missed this thread earlier - but well done Glenda :)

I'm embarrassed to say that the nearest I get to doing something on my GT is checking the oil and fluid levels once a month :eek:

Well done! But did you manage to avoid touching the glass part of the bulb with your fingers?

Worse that can happen is the bulbs might conk out a bit quicker. Not worth the hassle taking them back out again. If you can't get the bulbs in without touching the glass next time, you can wear latex gloves.
