How do you change the Headlight bulb

How do you change the passenger side headlight bulb on a Fiat Punto W reg? Easily? I need help & I don't have a manual.

Re: How do you change the Headlight bulb

Hi,
I have just change the headlight bulb and I know how awkwardly placed the
casing is. I tried the conventional method but there is not enough room to get the casing out to expose the bulb and wiring.. Any how I decided to remove the bolts (3 of them) that hold the whole light unit in place and move it forward so I could get in from the back .It worked, I was able to remove the casing. There is then the issue of the bulb holding clip. This has to be removed to slide the actual bulb out. Be careful with the clip do not loose it. Put the new bulb in and put the clip back on. Its a bit tricky but try to remember how it came off. Put the casing back on then fgasten the whole light unit back. It took approx 15mins to do. Hope this helps.

Would you be able to write that up as a guide for other members having the same problem? Would be a big help

Just did this today, fantastic tip. Gonna write up a guide now if there isn't one already.

OK here we go. Fairly simple stuff but it was enough to fox us for a few hours.
