Can anyone tell me if there is a easy way to get the bulbs out of a GU Nissan PAtrol. I cannot get in behind the lights. (no room) I am told that there may be a easy way to get the headlight to swing out from the front. Cant seem to get it to work thou.

THere is a long screw verticallyon the outer end of the headlight If u undo that the side light comes out and then u can remove the headlight.

Are you shure that isn't the one that lets the indicator come out? The headlight is held in by more than one long screw.

It looks like a screw but it is not.

It is a pin just grab hold of it with some plliers and pull it up. Twisting back and forth may help get it started.

That what I said It lets the indicator(side) light out then u can get at the headlight. I cant remember how many screws hold the headlight in but its not many and u have to take side light out to get at them.
Haven't had a Patrol for 2 years so a bit vague on it now.

Thanks to all I will have a go at the long screw theory and see how we go.

Tony is right
If your hand is too big then find a friendly small-handed person with some strength as well as they are a bit tough to get the wiring off especially if its the first time since new.
