I'm waiting for a bulb to go on the front end.  It'll be an excuse to remove the bumper etc and fit some fancy headlight bulbs and the trick sidelights TJG gave me!

Pay VW to change a bulb?  :shocked:  :grin:

Whip the bumper off.  I wasn't too keen 1st time, seemed like a big job but it is really very simple.

I think they may fit them for free or a very small charge..only because i saw someone getting that done when i was in there yesterday buying something else.

You can change them without taking the bumper .. although my bumper will have to come off at the weekend to fit my new depo lights an HID's :)

Vw WILL charge half hour labour to do headlight bulbs  :wink:

Halfords refuse to touch them lol  :grin:

Why struggle when it only takes 5 mins to remove the bumper  :smiley:

That'll be £50 then.

I'll fit them for £20 if you drive it over here?

sh!t, my drivers side main beam light has gone and I rang Reg Vardy my local VW dealership to see what they would say.
Well the guy said you pay for the bulb and we'll fit it for free, so i thought ok that sounds good cuz didn't fancy taking the bumper off, so he came back and said that the bulb is £10.50 I laughed and put the phone down :)
