Re: Head lights

In the Grande Punto you can just put your hand in the wheelarch and change them i think (much easier then my stilo which is a pain in the ass)

there might be a guide in the sections above somewhere

Re: Head lights

A nice easy one

Josh your thinking about the indicator replacement hatch in the arch

no need to take the lamp apart open the bonnet

Look through the lens and make a mental note of how the bulbs aligned (look at the bulbs in built reflector)

at the back of the lamp there is a rubber disc pull that off

now feel in the hole for the back of the lamp there is a black electrical plug pull that off the bulb.

now feel for the wire retainer you have to push it in and to the right or left then release and it drops down.

pull the bulb out

put your new bulb in (dont touch any of the glass with your fingers (if you have done already you MUST clean them with IPA or meths before you fit them or they will burn out prematurely)

slide the new bulb in and align it visually from the outside and give it a wiggle till its tags drop into the recesses on the inside

lift the sprung metal clip back up and push tight and move to the left/ right and release. it will lock in place if not try again.

next refit the plug on the back of the bulb

then put the rubber cap back on.....

and now test the lights.

Re: Head lights

Re: Head lights

mines an active 1.2 so you could hide a small child in the engine bay a lot of it is knowing what to do once you have done a couple you can do them with next to no room there is always the option of removing the arch lining *( i wouldnt remove the headlamp unit as it would need re aligning after)*
