on a b? dont think you can get to the bulbs without removing the panel, which is 2 screws under the top heater vents, 2 under the slider for inside/outside air, it should then just move far enough to get in to change the bulbs without removing the wiring and the cables id have thought?

Piece of piss to do, its getting everything back on right thats the wanker.
I remember doing mine, 5 mins to take to bits and fit the bulbs, an hour to get the badger back together.

It's a right pig of a job, but great when they're done.
