            Dude, it is a fault on renaults design, don't go to a renault dealer because you will pay through the nose ( they do have to take the bumper off), Don't go to Motorsave ( robbing gits). Take Kingfishers advise, and go to Halfords. No-body has hands that small or that long, except maybe ET.

                Megane headlights

                Take it into Halfords when I had my Megane I too was like you took it to Halfords did it for a couple of quid. Less hassle and saves you breaking the headlamp casing. Chap I spoke to said a Jag Owner brought his in and he broken the bulb mount £300 later it becomes an expensive bulb.

                    I work in the automotive trade looking after nearly every contract you can think of and have supplied parts to every vehicle maker in europe and this has been a big problem with new cars for some time. The garages have been taking all the big manufacturers for a ride as every time you take your car for a service during the 3 year warranty they say it needs a bulb and the car makers have to pick up the costs.

                    I had until very recently the Hella lighting contract on site supplying the lights for Jag cars at castle brom. The dealers were charging Jag £85 everytime a bulb had to be replaced in turn Jag would pass this back to Hella to re-coup some of the money.

                    Hella realsied this was some sort of con so have invested in making future headlamps which will use LED's, they last a minmum of 10 years and thus stops the greedy little garages chipping into their profits ?

                    Great for us too as we no longer have to fiddle around to change a bulb
