Remove the bulb and take it into Autobarn (or similar) and say Broken, help me.

Sorry for the abrupt answer, hope it helps.

Well ive replaced my headlights for my 1.8 ltr hardtop..

and i dont think the V6 and 1.8 are any different for removal..


when you open bonnet..
you need to look behind the lights..

there are 2 silver circles which are the globes..

and there is a clip of some sort holding them down..

You need to squeeze and push down ... then release and let them up..

_
| ' <--- its on a hook like this...

so the clip has to come off it..

it can be hard.. depending on your finger strength... i got em off fine.. with hands... some ppl need long nose pliers =D

Ok one you have removed clip

you move the globe out.... then there are 2 wires attached ... disconnect em... AND REMEMBER WHERE THEY WENT !! =P

then take fubar'd globe to Auto barn... auto one... ummm or super cheap

anywhere that sells globes and show em... they will issue new one

Then do reverse of top...

=D

Hope it helps =D

Ta ta..
