Tried twisting it?

On my B, all I did was prise out the old one and twist the bottom, the whole thing came apart then.

Apparently on the facelift corsa c's you need to drop the bumper, or face about ten hours cutting your wrists everywhere!

One screw in each arch and one nut in each, three screws at top of bumper and pull forwards.

Cheers

Never an easy way is there! I take it then to drop bumper and un-bolt headlamps to fit.

Well I managed without droppin the bumper.
A long screwdriver, patience and one cut finger.
See how they look tonight.

Not as bad as my dads smart car, to replace a headlamp bulb you have to remove the whole front of the car, only one panel but you would of thought there would be an easier way.

I wonder if its just to line the pocket of the garages. Anyone who cant DIY then have to pay.

Well with most new cars there isnt a lot you can do yourself, not like the classic corsa.

On my preface light one with normal lights I pop the bonnet, then just remove the covers that cover the lugs, and then just pull them out

mind u the side light ones are a pain to get out as opposed to the main beam bulbs

no need to drop the bumper

Gone are the days of fixing your car with a hammer and screwdriver, its all electronics and fault codes, where it costs you £60 for them just to plug it in and have a look, or so im told.
