This sounds good!! Is there a link to the purchase of the bulbs, i.e. ebay etc or a bulb part number please could do with a light brightness upgrade Grin

Cheers

Tools you'll need.
Headlamp removal tool from car toolkit.
Philips head screwdriver.
Remove portion of front trunk side liner to reveal rubber bung. Remove bung, insert headlamp tool, release headlamp with what sounds like a nasty clunk.

Philips screwdriver to remove 4 screws at back of headlamp unit. Remove back cover by pressing in tabs. Twist off silver braided plug from back of bulb to give some slack to cables to get back cover out of the way. Pinch the wire retainer and hinge out. Remove old bulb. Open packaging for n
ew bulb but don't touch the bulb glass! Place new bulb in by handling only the base of the bulb. Replace all connectors, covers and headlamp unit back in car. Wash plastic headlamp with plastic polish to best see the new light!

Just replaced all my C2S's interior bulbs with LED equivalents, the engine bay, frunk, glovebox, footwells, interior lamps and kerb lights. Those kerb lights can be awkward buggers to remove!

I bought my 997 a new Bosch battery as the previous one wasn't taking charge after a month of no activity.

Front near side a/c condenser replaced under warranty Thumb then renewal of warranty frustrated

Plus £570 road tax so £1,800 for a “non-service” years motoring.
