Found an easy way to do it.took an early morning drive to newmarket and just happened to call in at gst for a cup of tea and Gerald gave me a masterclass in how to change a bulb. Saw simon( @sizo

Bulb I would have thought but your set up is different from mine in that I have all 4 lit up on dipped beam.

Early cars have all four on dipped beam and main, later cars have just two dipped and four main - I believe that legislation changed which mean't you could have 2 dipped beam.

Later cars have the two outside as dip beam, these go off and the two middle ones come on for main beam. You can add a relay into the existing loom to convert this so all four come on with main beam, which I have done, it just costs a new relay.

to get to the bulbs you have to strip the lights down, remove the trim, remove the bezel and release the reflector to get to the bulb.

With the engine running and the lights on?

On my S2, I also had to disconnect the linkage to the motors the let me lift the pods high enough to get access to the lower chrome bezel screws.
