I have a headlight which is blown. Can any one give any tips on how to remove the bulb housing. I am as far as being able to  loosen the battery to make space and remove the rubber cap over the electrical connection. There is no info on how to separate the power connector from the headlight bulb and i dont want to break the main supply connection. Can anyone help please.

Much appreciated

Do you know if it's a xenon or halogen bulb? 

If the former, I'd expect to see a large silver box (underneath the rubber dust cover).

If you're not sure, the year and trim of your car might help someone work it out. For example, the 2005 SVE has xenon in the UK.

Good morning and thanks for your promo response. I have seen some YouTube videos from car spy tv and I must say they are very good.

It’s a 2003 model. On the boot it has a “z” mark in silver. Under the dust cover is a black box with two wires brown and white going in the box. I can see the part mounted to the body of the car which is silver however the box is black. The registration is NV03 UPZ. I’m not sure what type of bulb it is.

I suspect that's a halogen bulb. 

My car has the other type - so I can't see what you're seeing which makes it harder to help. 

However, I can quote from the owner's manual (for a 2005 car) which confirms how to replace a halogen. It says:

  1. disconnect the battery negative terminal
  2. pull off the rubber cap
  3. disconnect the electrical connector from the rear end of the bulb
  4. push and turn the retaining pin to loosen it
  5. remove the headlight bulb.
Finally, reverse the procedure to fit the new bulb. Hope that points you in the right direction.

Yes, it's an easy enough job other than the difficulty of access with the battery on the nearside and the washer bottle filler neck on the offside both getting in the way! I've had to move the battery back in its tray and, on the other side, remove the filler neck (twist and lift clear). That's on a halogen-fitted 2003 P12.

Thank you very much. This may be pushing it a bit but is there anyway I can show you the electrical connection by sending a picture by email?

Thank you very much.

Better to pop a picture on the forum. That way, everyone can see and/or help. 

There's also then a record for other people who have the same issue in the future. 

There's a guide on posting pictures under 'Forum Announcements & Help'.

Thanks for the pictures.

On my car (that has a xenon bulb) there's no black box. Instead, there's a silver igniter module that's about the same size, shape, and in the same position. To remove my igniter, I simply twist it then pull backward. I can then access the electrical connector on its side.

Whereas I can't be sure without seeing your car in person, I therefore suspect your black box can be removed in a similar manner. However - from what I can see in the pictures - it doesn't look like you have to then separately remove an electrical connector. 

Perhaps someone with the same type of bulb can confirm/say otherwise.
