headlight removal ??
#1
Need to get the nearside light out as the wire clips bent to hell after having a bulb changed at halfords,it was raining and i didnt want to get wet with 300 miles to drive home,plus I know it's a prat to change,anyway,the bulbs not sitting right and the wires bent out of position somehow,does the bumper have to come off for light removal ?? if so it's a bull bar off job :-(

Think it is a bumper off job, that's what you get when computers rather than engineers design cars. I struggled with the passenger side on mine and remember realising that it wasn't a five minute job to remove the light unit.

Time for a mirror, a torch and plenty of loose change for the swear-box, have fun.

I've removed the nearside light without removing the bumper before now. I can't remember how I did it though. I'll have a play later when I've had a kip. Just finished a night shift.

thank you sir,any advice appreciated, tried to get the local Halfords to sort it,but it was a branch near Exeter that fitted the bulb they wouldn't entertain it,I'm not getting flashed for dazzling people,But I can see the light further to the left and up slightly so I'm not that desperate to chuck garage money at it :-) ..cheers,Ian.

Looks like I have a condensation problem in my N/S headlamp. It does seem to clear when I do a long journey but is soon back again after sitting for a day or so in the current damp weather, so I'd like remove it for a look.
There's a post in the solved section about removing a couple of screws behind the wheel arch cover, just wondered if anyone has more advice about removal & also likely cause of the condensation?
Here's the other post I found:

Thanks

I havent done one on the Berlingo but i have read your link and it sounds pretty fiddly but certainly doable.

The misting is usually a split or crack somewhere in the headlight - i have drilled small vent holes in other headlights before with good results.
