    drl bulb removal

    Hi. It's seriously very easy once you have the technique. I've small hands so it was ok for me. For example using the drivers side lamp once rear cover is off I kinda dug my right hand in and located the bulb holder. Once it was in my hand it was a simple turn anti clockwise and pull. Out came...

    drl bulb removal

    Hi all. Just wanted to update you on this. The bumper doesn't need to be removed at all. It was my technique causing the issues. I ordered new bulbs and fitted them in minutes. The above video really helped. Thanks again.

    drl bulb removal

    It's a 2008 first of face lift. They aren't xenon lamps either. I can grab the bulb holder but it's a chore to do much more. They seriously haven't produced a car that needs bumper off to change a bulb. ???

    Mine did exactly this when it went to awesome gti for cruise control fitting. Turns out they broke something and wouldn't own upto it. As a result i had no TC at all. Hope you get it sorted.
