i've had the covers & washer bottle off tonight but couldn't release the clip holding the bulb in.
wanted to make sure it was ok to change them & i'm not likely to get an electric shock!!
Electric shock is one of the things to watch for. Locate the fuse and pull it or disconnect the balast.

You should manage to pick up these bulbs for £50 or so for two. One thing to note is the colour 'temperature' of the bulb. Normally 4600K are fitted which give a natural white light. 6000K is really quite blue. You will want to match the one that's fitted or replace both.

may not always be the xenon bulbs that go. the starter for the bulb is also very common to go on these. more than likely need to remove the bumper to gain access and is also the easiest method to replace motor and bulbs
