Re: Changing light bulb Clio III* Fixed*

I love my Clio, but its habit of blowing dipped-beam bulbs on a regular basis is a pain in the a**e. I would have thought that such things would no longer happen on a 61-reg car, but hey-ho.
All I do is call Renault Assist (the AA). I know that sounds a cop-out, but changing the bulbs takes even an AA man a good twenty minutes, so awkward is the access. Don't use a dealer - you won't get out of there for less that 65.00, which is simply not on for changing a consumable.
I wonder why it is not possible to simply unclip a holder, put a new bulb in and carry on.
