Hello Lindabowering  welcome5

H7 is the dipped beam bulb
H1 is the main beam bulb

Access to the bulbs is through the back of the headlight unit after removing rear cover, pull up spring clip to remove rear cover.
On the drivers side there is an additional piece of plastic that slides upwards first.
You should now be able to see the rear of the bulb albeit limited space, pull of the plug then  unhook the wire clip, the clip is hinged on one side and will swing around once unclipped, you can now remove the bulb.

When fitting a new bulb do not touch the glass part.

Upgraded Eberspaecher booster heater  to independent heating with 7 day timer.

With VCDS lite (full version) need a code clearing or want to scan for faults in the north kent area, PM me.
All for a pint of Strongbow.

You know I thought about this some more and still wasn't happy it was H1 fitted - I've just examined my spare 2005 Passenger side xenon lamp and its 100% a H7 in there, with that in mind I took the 2003 drivers side one out of the car and its also a H7. I can only assume that for some reason the xenon headlights have H7 whilst the halogens have H1...
