    Need Bulb Fitting Help Reallly Bad :(

    Ok so it's almost 11pm and i'm trying to fit some new blue-ish dipped headlight bulbs, ive got the bulb connected (got into it near the wheel arch) but i cannot get the damn thing to clip into place like the old one was, i've tried to get the old one back in and i cant do that either so the new bulbs are definitely the right size, i'm completely stuck so if anyone can help it would be majorlyy appreciated!! 57 plate 3 door btw

    if the base of the bulb is slightly bigger than the OE one then you might need to loosen off the retainer screws inside the headlight (as i had 2 when fitting HIDS).

    Unfortunately its a headlight out jobbie so not to be done at 11pm.

    U say u couldnt get the old one back in place either.

    On the metal retainer clip on the edges they are bent up slightly (to stop the clip going back past the horizontal position. Just make sure you are turning it the correct way and it should go in without any problems.

    hey mate i dunno if u got it done last night but what it sounds like is u might have bent the metal inside the light.. its no biggy tho just look where the blub slides in and there is a little piece of metal to keep it in place and if u put it in at the wrong angle which can be easily done especially at 11pm .. so just look see if its a little bent and if it is just straighten it and it should fit in now worries
