I did this a year or so ago, I only had to change one head light but ended up taking the whole bumper off anyway. I'd say set aside at least 3 hours (I might just be a bit slow though Smile ). I didn't use any special tools really just the usual screwdrivers and a socket set, what I would say it get some of those clips for holding the wheel liners as they always break. If I remember correctly you have to get behind the wheel arch liners to undo the bottom bolt on the lens.

Hi bob, appreciate you taking the time to reply. I have no feeling in my right hand so struggle with small screws etc so I'm sure it will take me all of three hours.......or more lol.
When I get round to it I shall let you know if you r slow or not ;-)
Regards,
Hugh.

Hi bob,nd anyone else reading this, it took under three hours and only this long because took a while to work out how bumper came off between wing and bumper........just pulled it and bingo.
Getting wheel arch skin off was a pain also but now that I've done it I reckon less than two hours now.
