Xenon bulb replacement
« on: June 05, 2016, 08:52:05 AM »
Hello,
I have stupidly left doing this until last minute as I wasn't doing any night time driving until I need to drive to an Airport on Tuesday so have taken the sting of £120 for a pair of replacement xenon bulbs at Halfrauds.
Had a search on the internet and replacing the bulbs looks pretty straight forwards , however I cannot find anywhere which fuses I need to pull to do this safely. Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated. Its on a 2006 3.0D.

Cheers,

Chris

Safest is to pull the battery off.  So many systems interconnect, or have multiple power sources the only was to be 100% sure is take the whole supply off.

Fuses 9 & 32 are the light module ones (front box).  8 other fuses (some in the rear) are also involved, but the fuse board diagram does not specify exactly which ones are headlights.

When you do change them, wear eye protection as the bulbs contain high pressure gases.
