    Hi Guys, do you really need to remove the headlamp to change the H7 headlight bulb?

    Or have I been told fib!

    Cheers

    It is possible to change it without removing the headlight. I have managed to get my hands in between and change it without the need to remove anything.

    Can do it without removing it, quite fiddly and lots of patience needed though.

    Need someone with small hands or a pair of long nose pliers to make the job easier.

    They have a clever way of being held in, by 3 sprung loaded clips.
    Get a mirror to see what you have to do, it's simple.
    The sidelight bulbs are the little sods lol

    Yeah try and remove the wiring first, then the bulb needs to be pushed out the top clip then it will fall out the remaining two
