Changing Mk1 Headlight Easy Or Not

Recommended Posts

Hi guys i have been to see a mk1 T spirit 1.0 i like the car but the headlight is letting in water due to a crack in the headlight but dealer refusing to change it before the sale saying all the usal crap i am getting a bargain but actualy i think i am over paying.

Since i havent had a car since december i really want to get back on the road so was thinking of changing the headlight my self its the passenger side just want to check its easy and make sure you dont need to remove bumper or anythink else to fit it.

Thanks

Need to be careful as regards heating the headlight unit to separate the lens from the headlight unit - seen one topic where they used an oven to soften the adhesive and they recommended not to use more than 100 degrees as the plastic reflector can melt.
