    Hi guys,

    I got a roadworthy done a few weeks ago and the only real issue was the headlight needed being re-positioning.

    I'm wanting to replace the current bulbs and by using [URL="]THIS[/URL] video, it's looks very easy.

    My question is, is it possible to 'throw off' the positioning again by following this guide or was the original repositioning of the actual globe housing/socket?

    Thanks guys,
  2. Does your headlight allow you to open the it without unbolting it from the holding bracket? If no, then simply mark with a texta a point of reference to re align it as it currently sits
  3. Following the video tutorial I hyperlinked, it doesn't look like I need to, just under the instrument cluster, you can remove the rubber grommet and pull the original one out and slot another one in. :D
  4. If you have enough clearance, then you're doing well, they alway have a 'slot' type of base so they only fit in, one way. do not touch the glass of your globe with your fingers!! Always use a rag [clean of course' if you are to hold the glass for some reason.
