Change a bulb
See the light with these simple tips
See what’s blown
First check whether it’s actually the bulb at fault; it’s quite common for the lights to have their own individual fuse, so check those first. The layout of the fuses and what they are protecting is shown in the manual.
Gaining access to your bulbs often requires the removal of covers and panels, with these out of the way there will be a rubber ‘boot’ protecting the bulb. Disconnect the bulb connector and then remove the rubber cover.
Check it out
Spring clips holding the bulb can be a bit fiddly at first. Patiently unclip it and remove the bulb. If there is no visible damage check to see if it works by connecting it to an outside power source and recheck the fuses.
It’s important not to touch the glass of a halogen bulb. Choose a good quality bulb, check the wattage and type is correct, then install and check to see if it works before refitting panels and clips.
