Sorry mate might have been helpful if i actualy said which punto i was talking about. Its a 2000 fiat punto sporting and the fuse box gets in the way. But yeah i think i might as well try loosening the fuse box but its a pain cuz its chucking it down outside and i got a late trip home from uni tomoz, it sucks.

Save yourself the hassle of taking the fusebox out, you can do it.

It is an extremly tight squeeze, but you can get the old bulb out and put the new one in, my passenger headlight went so i changed the 2 headlights to Osram ones.

It IS NOT easy to change the passenger side bulb!! I have just been outside trying for 40 mins, and still haven't done it. The problem is that the connector is on there stiff! I had to prise the drivers side off with a screwdriver, but there is no way in hell of getting a screwdriver in that side. Was gonna move the headlight out later, but don't wanna change the levelling of it. Suppose will have to try moving the fuse box.

FIAT are crap!!

also unscrew the light unit itself and the fuse box then it is much eassier but still a pain to do

Just undo the three bolts holding the fuse box on, job done.
