    Hi Simon.
    You'll find a flat metal slide clip on one of the top fasteners( the one that adjusts the light height), slide it out, then just yank the light out straight ahead. You'll need to give it a good jerk to get it to let go. When fitting the new light put some grease on the ball ends of the fittings. You'll probably have to get a new bulb as well, the older lights are not available and the replacements come with different bulb fittings.

        My left headlamp had water in it so I went to work on the thing. I squirted a little oil into the ball joints, work it back and forth a few times them gave it a yank out.

        I found if the rubber grommits are not put in securely they'll allow water in over time when it rains. I dried it all out then lined the joints up and then pushed it all together again.

        Apart from the hole in the passenger cill I need to remake and an oil leak I wonder what else I'm gonna find.

          Headlamps c15

          Hi All, I've got the same problem with one of my headlamps so I think ill be getting the mig welder out again, just when I thought I was all set for the next mot. !! Seems we are all on a journey with the c15 lol

          As a matter of interest I take my vehicle to a chain of test centers that operate on a no pass no fee, they test 12hrs a 7 days a week they are not looking for work and I found them very fair. They do charge the full fee however. They trade as Motest. Worth checking if they have a nearby branch.
          Happy new to everyone
