    Hi,
    Got some side lights and they fell into the actual headlight component of the car (I now have 3 bulbs in the headlight itself )

    What is the easiest way around this? Is taking the headlight component out simple or is it a fair bit of work eg removing bumper aswell? Is there a better way to get them out as I currently have one side light on driver side and none of the passenger side! Any advice welcome

    Thank you!

    P.s I have a Seat Leon 55 plate 1p TFSI!

    This sounds like a good idea, however I’m not sure whether the bulb would come back through the same hole if you get me as it’s a small fit? Would be a good idea though!

    The metal plate should be on the bottom of the bulb so you should be dragging it thin end first which should help.

    Better than removing the entire front of the car I think haha

    Does the main beam share the same case as the side light as you could take that out for a bigger hole?
