The local renault dealer charges £150 to change the headlamp bulb in the little modus!! & thats not xenon
You have to take the bumper off then the complete headlamp out - silly design when you think that the law in France says you must carry spare bulbs

Is that the price for a Xenon then?
Won't look forward to that if that happens then :rolleyes:

Just changed my rear indicator bulbs to silver ones about 2 hours ago - hand is scratched and thank you to who ever put the parking sensor electric box in the way too :rolleyes:

I have had to send a couple of cars to the local garage because I have not had time to take bits of the engine out Audi A4 and VW Sharan spring to mind just for sidelights,
The A4 does not have the service hatches like the passat.
I have done the bulb on an old style megane but lots of plastic and much knuckle skin had to be removed.

anyone incapable of changing the bulb deserves to pay that much.

If you do need to remove the bumper it never takes more than 10 mins to do it on most modern cars.

Police are lobbying manufacturers about it due to not being able to prosecute owners
