Fitting dipped beam bulbs

Hello all, does anyone know if it is possible to change the dipped bulbs on a 2.2 without moving battery or the bottles on drivers side, seems a bit tight.

Yes it is, but as you say it's very tight.

You can unclip the radiator reservoir and shift it aside quite easily - gives you a bit extra space but not much!

You need small hands Ash. If you can wait 'til Shaun's meet next month, Karlos will do it for you, his hands are tiny ! Mind you, he has a huge head !

Won't take long either, can do it in the pub car park...
