Give them a ring on Tuesday - they should be able to tell you straight away on the phone, as all Peugeot jobs have pre-defined times in the computer :nod:

Someone with higher access to servicebox than I have got may be able to tell you sooner.

Thanks guys it seems straight forward enough to remove except for the clips under the headlight as they are suppose to be a pain to get to

to get to them, you have to remove the mudguards, and get this special tool that looks like a small hook on a long rod, hook it up and pull while turning. its a bitch to do. :lol:

So 2.5hrs to Peugeot would be anything between £150 and £200.
If it doesn't sound too bad a DIY job, for that money it would be worth a go :nod:

I saw my mechanic make one out of old droplink by welding a hook onto one end of it. As for DIY job, yeah its doable, i had mine taken off myself and put it back on with help from mechanic :)

Good tip Martin, saw on wheeler dealers a range rover with what looked like fuel pipes coming out of the fog lights, they were ventilation pipes to stop fogging.

I can access fog lights without removing bumper but while I am fitting a new grille I bought 2 new fog lights on eBay for £35 .just thought I would change them while they are cheap
