    Headlights

    Think whoever had the astra before me took a bump or smashed a headlight as I have one smoked headlight and one normal one. I've ordered another smoked but changing it over is it a simple job for a beginner? Do i need to remove the whole bumper? Looked at the how-to for the bumper seemed pretty straight forward a few screws and clips.
    Kind Regards,

    Dean

    Yes the bumper needs to come off. I can replace the headlights in around 20 minutes now so yes it's a simple job

    hi m8!

    yeah it would be easier to have the bumper off like but i just undid each end of bumper to change mine m8! twisted my arm around to get bottom lugs off headlights (nightmare)!!! lol..

    couple off torx screws in ure front wheel arch's, couple behind splitter and flat head screwdriver to get pins out of the top of the front bumper!

    easy m8!!
