Smile modus headlight bulb replacement

Help Help
what do I need to remove, to gain access for main beam bulb replacementon on my modus?

At first glance it looks a nightmare and I can't believe all the surrounding equipment needs to be removed so I'm sure clever Renault have made it more simple than it looks -so whats the secrete?

Re: modus headlight bulb replacement

Hello and welcome to the forum.

I'm pretty sure you need to remove the complete front bumper assembly,and then the headlights to be able to change the bulbs.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

Re: modus headlight bulb replacement

Hi, I am afraid that the bumper has to come off when replacing the main beam bulbs etc, except for the indicators which can be reached from behind.

Try looking here
Good luck

Re: modus headlight bulb replacement

Hi. I took our Modus to a local garage, who managed to change a headlight bulb (driver's side) without taking off the front of the vehicle. This invoved removing a few removable parts in the engine space - pipes and the like (sorry...not a mechanic!). He could reach down the back of the headlight housing and got the bulb free. He managed to replace the bulb in about 40 minutes with this process but at least didn't have to take the car apart! His bruises and cuts, though, put me off attempting the same thing...
