Hi guysif anyone as the unfortunet to change headlight dipped bulbs
on active 1.4vti
n/s is not to bad but o/s is a different story first you have to disconnect battery lead
then remove the ecu unit next to the battery then remove fuse box
ps 208 allure headlights are round the other way so makes it easier

Goes with the territory, even on the bigger Pugs there is not much room and you have to be a contortionist to get at the bulbs and clips. Already steeled myself for the first change...

I've just managed to change mine on a 1.2 active. Blood down the front of my nice white car!!
What a pain in the backside! (Especially the passenger side that's blocked by the fuse box!!)

How interesting that you guys are having issues changing a bulb on the smaller engine 208's. I have a gti and had no problems. I would have thought I would have more problems due to more kit in the engine bay.

I've just done mine on my 1.6THP xl. It only took
me about 2 minutes each side. No problem with
access at all. Not sure what the fuss is all about

I've changed the bulbs on both dipped and high beam on my 1.6 e-hdi feline. If I remember correctly I took the cover off the fuse box to make changing the high beam bulb a lot easier on the passenger side.

I have changed mine also on my 1.6 e-HDi Allure, no major problems the nearside were hardest to get to but not too bad. The difference between the original bulbs and the Osram Night Breaker Unlimited ones is amazing, still a little underwhelmed with the dip beam though! :)

i changed mine to Xenon's and i found it tricky to get my hands in to pull them out and put them back, it's as if peugeot wanted to make it slightly difficult to change them ;)

that being said, apart from a few scratches and fiddling, i had no major problems.

I have uprated both my dipped and main headlights. I found it a little on the crammed side but nothing major. As someone has said, the active lighhts and allure lights are different and the bulb is much easier to get to.

Yep its awkward. Here's the easiest way on an Active (apparently the most difficult on the passenger side.)
Unclip the air intake pipe and move to the left out of the way.
Unclip the fuse box cover and remove.
Remove the rubber cap, if you have big hands use long nose pliers.
Remove the plug on the back of the bulb by wiggling it from side to side, or with your hand at the bottom and a flat screwdriver as a lever at the top.
Remove the bulb by pushing it to one side.
Ok, now put the new bulb in the plug first then maneuver the plug and bulb into position and push firmly into the clip.
Check the bulb works.
Put the rubber cap dust cover back on
Put the fuse box cover back on
Clip the air intake pipe back into place
