OK,so ive had a rear sidelight bulb go,changed it no problem.
Now a dipped headlight bulb has gone,again not a problem..so i thought!
I decided to get Osram Nightbreaker Unlimited main and dipped and upgraded sidelight bulbs while i was at it then i know there all done.
After half an hour of swearing ive given up!
Started on the passenger side,H1 dipped bulb easy to get to!

I've had the same fun as you :D

I've got Osram Nightbreaker unlimiteds in mine now, but was very difficult and sore fingers to change them, and passenger side dipped beam went in wonky at first.

I've got quite fat fingers and just about managed.

Best tip is to do drivers side first, you can actually get a bit better view of the retaining clips on that side to see how they unclip, but be careful not to completely pull the clips off or lose them, just open them and fold them back, then remember how the old bulbs were oriented when you take them out, theres a tab on the bulbs and need to go in a certain way.

If you're local i could possibly help, i'm near J25 M1. *EDIT* just noticed you're in Barnsley, miles away nevermind.

Did peugeot actually try and change a bulb after the initial mould came out is what im wondering?
Anyway,the side light is one i cant get out for starters,does it just pull out,twist or what?
I cant get my fingers in properly.
Ill have another crack tomorrow night after work,im starting on the passenger side as thats the side that the dipped bulb went so i was going tou change one side and compare the night breakers to oe spec.
Thanks for the reply btw:)

i have massive hands and i change mine easy enough.

theres a tps in the way on the right hand side on mine which is a pain. on the left side you have to take the cover over the coolant bottle

Hi. You have my sympathy!!
I'm not the most dexterous of people, and because of the length of time it took me, I've ended up with condensation in both lamps!!
The side lights I twisted out with a pair of long nosed pliers. They are a capless bulb type.
Perservere....

Let me know about the nightbreakers, full and dipped, please

Think the standard lights are difficult, try changing the dip bulbs on the mk1 307 with the morette twin headlamp conversion, mind you, the sidelights are easy!

I changed the passengerside one cos it just randomly blu one night. i also did it at night with the floodlight on. the ballache was getting the retaining clip back on lol Had to buy a new pair cos i didnt have any spare, now its fitted it looks alot brighter than the driverside one. you cans ee the passengerside on the rd but i cant see the drivrseide,i always wonder if its still on. Think i need to put that spare new one in :D

Ive done the H1 dipped headlight bulb,sits in the frosted bit,that was easy.
I dont know how the clip for the main beam comes off so its hard cos i cant see it either,stupid peugeot:mad:
and the sidelight bulb i wasnt sure about either but ill try long nose pliers and twisting thanks driftaround.
I am seriously cosidering taking the headlight unit out completely just so i can see what the hell im doing
