    [colo=red]Open bonnet, locate headlight, put hand on back of bulb holder, twist, remove, replace, twist on, BINGO !

    Bulb type is printed on the top black plastic bit of the headlight.
    Bulbs available from Halfords, Vauxhall, and all motor factors.[/color]

    They are dead easy to fit. Open bonnet and twist off the pulg at the back of the headlight. (Turn about 1/4 of a turn anti clockwise and pull out.) Then pull the old bulb straigt out of the holder - can be a bit stiff. Slide new bulb in straight - there should be lugs on the base of the bulb so u cant put it in the wrong way up. Be VERY CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE GLASS PART OF THE NEW BULBS. Grease on ur fingers will be left on the bulb and they will burn out. Use a cloth or something to handle the new bulbs.

    U can buy bulbs in halfords etc. but halfords wont sell blue tinted ones. Nearest u will get there are "all weather" bulbs, that are super white and have a rainbow tint which u can see when u look at the headlights at an angle.
