Replacing the Main/High Beam bulb on a C3 Aircross

Post by hastings-c4grand »

Hi Community

Do you happen to know if there is a guide for replacing the Main/High Beam bulb on a C3 Aircross 1.2 PureTech ( 110ps ) S&S SUV 2019MY?

I can reach the rear of the unit holding the bulb but am unsure how to disconnect and withdraw that unit from the housing.

Many Thanks

It should tell you in the handbook - usually either a spring clip or a rotation required.

Thanks Richard. I'll take a look. Should have occurred to me to do so.

I find it easier to take the headlamps out on our 308 and change the bulbs on the kitchen table than struggle to do them in-situ. Maybe the same for you?

That sounds like an interesting alternative. I hate changing bulbs. I guess I should I pick up a Haynes manual to see how to remove the headlamp?

On most modern cars it is a bumper off job....

I did say 'maybe'. For me it's a matter of two screws and disconnecting the wiring plug. Then easing the headlamp unit out. Thirty seconds at most.
