Do I need to remove the front turn signal assembly just to replace the bulb in a MINI Cooper?
No you don't have to take anything off. Just lift up the hood. look up, and on the back of the headlight you can simply twist off the round part that the bulb is attached to. Take out the old bulb and pop in the new one. It took me about 2 minutes in the Canadian Tire parking lot, and I'm a girl. Make sure you don't touch the new halogen bulb with your hands as the oil from you skin is bad for the bulb. I just used a tissue.
