bulb change???

Has anyone changed their headlight bulbs yet? I've had a quick look just now (in the dark with a torch...) and I haven't the faintest on how to even get to the bulbs...
Any ideas???

Yep, same question here. How the f...[xx(] can you change left (or right) headlight bulb on 1.9 JTD MW. I tried and tried, my friends tried... well we all tried but I think it is impossible since you have to dismantle practically half of the engine including ABS unit and watter tank !!!

Anyone seen - tried changing without going to your bellowed dealer?

I've heard that changing a bulb in headlights in Silo is even more difficult than in Punto Mk2. Stilo owners I know go to the dealer to have the bulb changed.

There is already a topic reg this...
It is indeed quite difficult, you need to remove a lot to get to it... nothing you can do on the side of the road...

nighmare job that took about 40mins at the weekend to do!!!!!
had to change on of the side light bulbs in the passenger side of mine. Entrance to back of lamp is obscured by battery/cover this is how I did it!!!!
1 - Removed battery cover using supplied Stilo screwdriver 3 or 4 screws (DO NOT REMOVE BATTERY)
2 - remove back of lamp cover - this comes of its hinges to give access to bulb
3 - I removed s#1t shield around wheel arch (5 or 6 posidrive screw)
4 - Gained access to light via fron wheel arch/ however I reckon I didnt need to remove s#1t shield and could have gained access via bonnet.

drivers side should be a doddle after this!!!!!
H5W Bulb was 70p (£1.40 for 2 from Halfords) FIAT wanted £10+VAT to do this!!!!!
Rather do it myself!!!!!!!

it is easier than it sounds - honestly!!!!!

Hi,

Been informed that it is a dealer job, and they are required to do it for free... Basically, they drop the front bumper and then slide both headlights forward - I know, because both mine need doing due to water ingress and severe corrosion. The dealer said Fiat have told all dealers to do Stilo bulb replacements free of charge because it is impossible to do easily otherwise

Regards,

James Mayl

IT is definitly a dealer job, not a DIY one.But wait untill the front foglights stop working, that is the real problem ... the man on the service needed about an hour and a half to change it and he nearly took out half of the engine. too complicated !

I did it[8D]. Luckily it was on driverís side (right driving). I unscrewed and moved away water tank and few hoses and then I could replace headlamp, it took me 1/2 hour and 5 EUR for H7 lamp.

the last three buttons on the left side of the wheel (right sided cars) are Front Fog Lights, Parking Lights and Rear Fog Lights ... got it HAM? And if you want to look from outside they are located lower than the front repeaters.

All Stilo's do not have them.
I have Xenon Head Lights, no bulb below the repeater.
Only 2 switches parking and rear fog lights.
