    Rubber backs to the light units, unclip the retaining spring, remove bulb, reverse for installation

    Hi there! I recently poped into Vauxhall and asked them how to change my dipped bulbs! I have a 3door Astra 1.9 CDTi thinggy and to change the bulbs you need to go in through the wheel arch and you will find two clips holding a little plastic cover up , unclip them and pull down the cover will come off and you will be able to reach into change the dipped beam bulbs - i dont know how to change the high beam as theres no room to get your hands in!!! I hope this is usefull to someone!

    I changed mine today, as said above you gotta go thru the wheel arch for dip, for high beam on the passenger side remove the fuse holder, pull it up and you can get in that way, driver side you remove the airbox with a torq key but i was able to get my hands in while pushing the airbox lightly.

    Hope this helps
