CHANGING A BULB

WARNING

If the exterior lights have just been switched off, give the bulbs time to cool. Handling them when hot may cause personal injury.

WARNING

To avoid personal injury, due to any possible residual electrical current, make sure not to touch any electrical connectors or circuit boards while changing a bulb.

CAUTION

Always replace bulbs with the correct type and specification. If in any doubt, contact a retailer/authorised repairer for advice.

CAUTION

Before attempting a bulb change, make sure that the ignition and the affected light are switched off. If the circuit remains live, a short circuit can occur, which may damage the vehicle's electrical system.
