Hi Martynpanes

No No No......Bumper comes off, you have to wait for your Inter-cooler to go first.

Yes as you're maybe aware by now the replacement of the side light bulbs or any bulbs is "BLOOD SPORTS"

Only tools required are : Small Hands

With any bulb replacement on a Laguna 11, first remove the Plastics.

Drivers Side : Power Steering pump Cap, then the Plastic Cover, Water Washer top-up bottle neck (Pull hard it will pop-out) (I've heard that before).

Passenger-side : remove Battery Cover.

This will expose the rear of the light units, the headlight has three chambers, each one with a Round cover/cap to excess the bulb/s, remove the cap/cover by turning a quarter turn anti-clockwise and pull out (the reverse when refitting)

Watch you don't drop any of them because they disappear into the murky depths of the engine bay.
In all cases, even when the plastics are removed, its still tight.
