    Default Head light help - 225 cup

    Hi guys n gals - have just bought (yesterday) a 06 Megane 225 Cup and have got home to find that the drivers side low beam isn't working. I've never really played with Renaults or xenons before so any help/tips/tricks you can give me would be hugely appreciated

    One bit of advice I can offer is to look on UK Ebay at pictures of the subject headlight, both new and used.

    This will show where it's bolted to the car, where the wiring plug goes, how the bulbs are reached. Then you can compare to your own, and it suddenly makes more sense between the bulb in your hand, and the headlight in the car.

    Agreed. I have halogen projectors that I can change without taking the light out - but I had to take the bumper off/light out to change a fecking indicator globe...
