Assuming that you're talking about a headlight bulb on a Citroen of some
sort, doesn't really help to clarify the question. Perhaps if you could
give a few clues about which model, someone might actually have a useful
answer. (Modern vehicles of all makes with 'faired in' headlights, usually
have a bulb-holder on the back of the headlamp unit, accessible from
within whatever part of the vehicle the lamps are associated with - eg the
As a matter of passing interest on this subject....

This therefore denotes that if it is a "modern" car then there is no need to

That's the first I've ever heard of that - and if it DOES exist, the vast

Hell, 40 MINUTES is probably unachievable for many.
Do you have any reference to it?
According to the driver manual on my daughter's Lupo, you HAVE to take the
car to a sevice agent to get any bulbs replaced. I get the feeling that this
might take a little more than even 40 minutes. Strange really when you think
that the laws in many european countries require you to carry a spare set of
bulbs - just in case the dealer has run out I suppose?
