Hi All,


Any JAG experts around?


Had to replace a blown headlamp bulb at the weekend in pouring rain, which I did, but found it near on impossible to replace the rear cover back onto the unit...... unless I strip the damn engine down


One bailarm clip is positioned so that it is impossible to re-fit


Now have ingress of water into headlamp so will need to completely remove and try to dry it out and clean it


Is there an easy way to replace the damn bulb rear cover without stripping all the skin off my hand?????


Note: Drivers side bulb unit - and is it similar on the passenger side?

The bulbs are horrible to change - although my technically minded brother in law managed it in 2 mins!


Check this out for how to do it:



Also consider upgrading the bulbs when you do a change as the factory bulbs are very poor. Great cars though.

Once again - thanks for the 'guides'
