Problem: According to many websites and a few mechanics, replacing the nearside headlamp on a Mk1 Fabia vRS involves removing the battery and battery box. This is because the clear plastic light-cluster cover almost touches the plastic battery box. Thankfully this is not true, as I’ve just found out… you don’t even need very small hands 🙂
Fix: The bulb can be replaced by removing the cover and fitting the new bulb in a certain fashion best illustrated with some photos:
… then replace the spring clip, and terminal connector, then replace the plastic cover in the exact reverse of the way you removed it.
Simple… but as people were actually taking their cars to a garage to do this I though it was worth posting a quick how-to. Happy to correct anything I have wrong, or explain things if you leave a comment!
