My bulbs arrived this morning! :)

Will try and fit them at the weekend! First time bulb changer here so I doubt it'll take me 10 mins! More like 10 hours if some of the horror stories I've heard are true!

Well I just attempted to change them.

WHAT AN ABSOLUTE funking NIGHTMARE!!!

Taken me about an hour and a half and that was just for the 3 headlight bulbs! Started on the offside lights by taking the arch access cover off and removing the washer bottle funnel. Managed to do the main beam and, eventually, the full beam bulb in about half an hour. Took me ages to figure out how to get the side light bulb out but eventually managed it. Took the old bulb out, reached back in with the new bulb, went to push it into the bulb holder and.................funking dropped it! It's somewhere in the front end of my car but god knows where. So tried again with the 2nd bulb and managed to do it this time. Side complete. Just reassemble the washer funnel etc.

Now for the nearside light. Took the front cover off above the light unit and also loosened the battery cover off as well with my socket set for ease of access. Managed to do the main beam and full beam bulbs in about 10 mins. Didn't change side light as I've run out of bulbs, lol! Was starting to put everything back together until the star socket bit (whatever it's called) falls off of my socket wrench and falls into the engine bay! Spend another 10 minutes trying to find it but no joy! Finished putting the car back together again.

Job done, minus one bulb and with two items rolling around loose in the engine bay! Not bad for my first go.

funking Meganes!!

Take the engine under tray off. Seven or so M10 set screws. Don't even need to jack it up. Parts will be on that I'd wager.

Red 03 plate 5dr 1.9 Dynamique dci120

Best advice for Megane owners: sell it before it bankrupts you!
