Hi Guys, new to the Alfa society, and a little bit of assistance is required if possible.

Basically, i need to replace the front left side light on my 147 (2001) how the hell do i get to it?, because you can't from the engine bayas far as i can see???

In addition, when inicating left the inicator light flases really fast inside on the dash, but the actual indicator flases normally on the outside, and all 3 work? its fine when indicating right????

Please help

Regards

Craig

welcome to the forum.

1: Post pics of your car, it the law around here.

2: Do you want to replace the whole headlight unit? or just the bulb?

Tips: 147 Head light stuff

I din't have a problem, it was due a service and MOT, so I let them fix it.

Not worth the bother, or I'm lazy

that guide was from a "worst case senirio".
you should just be able to twist the back cap off and change the bulb.

ah right,

so jeff am i right in thinking that it is possible to access the "side light" from the engine bay? i can see the main lights etc....

how does the back come off because i don't want to undo any wiring by fiddling around blindly!!!

Regards

you will see under my grubby hand the black panel to flip the silver clips off of.



remove the black panel and you can get to the side lights, they look like the main beam lights, but a little smaller.
