Smile Re: Changing headlight bulb in Megane II

Hi the 'optical light lens' bulbs appear to be just a push fit H7 (they are on my 2006 1.5dci)

I had this problem when I first purchased the car, bulb blew driving it home from dealer ! they replaced the bulb but as you say it had illumination but no actual visibility on the road.

I took out the front half of the arch liner (two screws and a few plastic tree thingies) turned the steering to face the opposite way got my head and torch in
and there is a notch which matches up on the bulb back plate and then pushed it home.

As the fuel filter & washer bottle etc. is also in there I'm so well practiced, I now take out the arch liner so quickly that I don't bother with the silly little access hole
that you can barely get a hand through and lacerates your forearm when you do try!

regards Al.
