Re: Changing light bulb Clio III* Fixed*
The U stands for Ultraviolet filter. Just make sure that you get bulbs that have the UV filter, otherwise the lenses may yellow over time.
Thanks for your very useful post. You make it sound easy, or you have lots of experience on working on cars....and yes, I have been reading on how to change these pesky darn bulbs (which has killed my hands!!), because it has aircon, so this pipe has shaved some skin off the back of my right hand!!!
It seems the passenger side bulb-replacement is going to be hell to play.....???!!!
You also mentioned the (original) Osram spec, which is on my car, too (I have the Clio III, Sept 2009) - 12V 55W H7U - what is th "U" for? No-one lists their bulb with this letter, but only as H7, or H4, etc...???
(Attached is the one I bought from Halfords - ONLY £12!!!!
