Can some one help please
I am trying to change the bulbs in the headlights
I can't seem to disconnect the bulb to remove the rubber go ect ect
I am pulling and pulling and nothing

I have searched the forum but just read about how successful everybody else has been

Go on tell me the simple solution which I am missing

(No I don't want to go back to dealers for a bulb change)
Cheers

The simple answer is dont change the bulbs. There is nothing wrong with the bulbs supplied if correctly adjusted. Unless you want those very bright white lights which annoy the **** out ot the driver in front. It's my pet hate.

Thank goodness you don't live near me. I can't believe that you can't see that the car in front is filled with light.

I had real trouble removing the connector from the passenger side headlight connector. I got it off in the end, but it took a great deal of force. The other side was ok, which was odd. I was trying with the bulb still clipped in place. I guess it may be possible to remove the clip to get the bulb out, then get the connector off, but you risk touching the old bulb glass, which is why I didn't try that way.
I hope you get it off. Perhaps the suggestion of halfords would be the best plan.

Try wearing some rubber gloves for extra purchase. That's what I did.

If you do manage to change the bulb, don't forget to apply som vaseline to the three prong connector and some rubber silicon to the rubber cover edges so that next bulb change will be a doodle.

Incredibly difficult to get off, I used long nose pliers, some leverage and brute force. I gave up a one stag !! 🤔

It is difficult, but I managed it ok, took me about ten minutes to do both.
