Morning all Newbie here :redface:
SHMBO has had the front drivers side spots on her cooper broken. I have a replacement and am ready and willing to replace it !!!! All I need is someone to tell me how the Hell do I access the thing ????? Do I get to it via the wheel arch or do I need to remove the front bumper.
Any guidance gratefully received. :confused:

Ah, you mean the fog lights. :eek:

Spots sit on the grille between the headlights like in my signature below. ;)

Morning...oh and welcome to MINI2!

the ones in the bumper? spot lights are mounted on the grill. the ones underneath the head light are side lights & indicators and the ones under those are the fog lights.

if you look in the wheel arch there should be a little bung type thing that twists out and i think you can then siply pull the bulb out and replace it.

Just ask me about my Mercedes LOL
Thanks for the welcome and fast response.
I will need to access all of the light as the front lens has broken and I will need to replace the whole thing.

Oh i see what you mean now. Yea, the bumper will have to come off i think. Not too much of a job - 45 mins to get it off n same to get it back on.

why as about your mercedes??
