Re: Changing light bulb Clio III* Fixed*

re bulb change in clio III

Just changed the 2 dipped beams in mkIII 2010 dci.
Yes it is a tight fit but the only things you should need to remove is your watch and other jewelry.
Remove rubber cover from unit stick your hand in and find the plug by following lead this will just pull out leaving the bulb in place which again is just pulled out.
if there is enough cable it's easier to fit the bulb into the plug and then push both back into place remembering the "lug" of the bulb goes to the top. I could do this on passanger side but drivers side didn't have enough cable so again push bulb into housing "lug" up and you will have to feel for the pins to put the plug back on.
All mkIII's are pretty tight for space due to the bonnet being so short,
I managed both in about 10 mins it is a good idea to stick a mirror down so you get an idea of where everything is the back of the light housing.
