Re: Headlight replacement on 51 palte Clio

Hello guys,
I had the same problem a while ago, it's not an easy procedure!!! Took two of us to get it done, you've just got to try a variation of holding things out of the way and getting the other one to twist, whoever has the smallest hands would be best twisting whilst the other one holds.

Also, is there any corrosion on the inside of the headlight cluster? Me and two of my mates had this problem. If there is any sign of corrosion, it's usually the actual fitting which the new bulb goes in to in which case its a new headlight cluster.

Anyway, sorry I cant be of more help, good luck with it and let me know how it goes.

Currently in ross1991's garage:
2001 Renault Clio 1.2 16v Dynamique
