Passat headlights
« on: 09 November 2017, 07:53:54 »

Step daughter has got rid of her Laguna 3.0L V6 in favour of a '03 plate 1.9TDi Passat.The headlights on this are in a truly dire state but it came with a very good pair of replacements.Does anyone know if the bumper needs to be moved/removed to fit these or is it just a case of open bonnet undo a couple of bolts and swap them out type of thing?

Most cars need the bumper off these days, have a look at the replacement headlights and see where the fixing points are, if there is one below the light on a support arm then the chances are its a bumper off job.

From that you tube video it seems to be just 4 bolts and out with the lamp so that's good :y The ones that are already in I'll clean up for her as spares once they're out.
