    I have just purchased some new uprated bulbs for our Boxer motorhome and thought they would be fairly straightforward to replace. My problem is accessing the bulbs on the offside of the vehicle. The handbook says just reach behind the unit - not really possible!
    It looks to me that you have to move the coolant bottle and power steering reservoir to get your hand to the rear of the unit. I've checked online and there really isn't much info that's relevant to my particular model and year. Once I've reached the bulbs I'm ok from there as I have a Peugeot car with the same bulbs and that part is easy. Any of you Funsters know how to access them please? Thanks

    not sure if 2014 is different to 2007, but its just about possible on mine,if not I would remove headlight unit its fairly easy 2 screws for top trim and 1 in bottom trim then you can access the bolts holding the unit in,be careful with the bottom trim it needs gently easing out of the clips

    Thanks Chatteris, yes I undid those trim screws this morning as I thought I might have to remove the unit. I must admit to losing my nerve when pulling on the bottom trim. It's plastic and was flexing and I wasn't sure how it was being held. Perhaps I'll have another go (when it stops raining!)

    I put a screwdriver behind the trim next to the clip and gently levered it out

    A wee spray of WD40 or Silicone spray on the clips eases removal(y).

    I would wait until it gets warmer, less chance of the plastic breaking. I'm sure you're not in that much of a hurry to dazzle other drivers are you? :)
