Question about 2001 Jaguar S-Type
Outer/inner bulb, remove top black plastic cover that runs the lenth of the front of the car behind lights, turn the circular cover covering bulb anti-clockwise and remove, you will see a spring clip, push this clip towards the bulb and downwards, this will release the bulb, fitting is the reverse and the bulb will only fit in one position. It is awkward and space is tight

1) Remove battery box top
2) Unclip the 1/2" hose above light housing and push out of way, clip is sharp!
3) With a 10mm socket, remove one bolt that secures engine compartment fuse box, When the bolt is removed, slide the fuse box backwards toward firewall until front clips are clear of slots, gently lift and push up and aside to middle of compartment. These steps will help give you some elbow room

Very easy, 2 or 3 minutes.
Remove radiator grille. 2 plastic fittings on top, quarter turn and lift out grille.
Remove complete headlight. Simply lift out 2 L shape retaining pins. Disconnect lead. Ease out complete headlamp unit.
Remove back of headlamp unit to access bulbs. Disconnect lead from bulb while bulb still held by clip. Then release clip to remove bulb.
Reverse process to fit.

Open up the hood, and go in behind the fixture where the light is located. Sometimes there is an access panel on top. Open it and reach down inside and grab the bulb’s socket. Twist the socket a quarter turn counter clockwise, and pull out the socket. Grab the bulb, and pull it straight out. To replace the new bulb, never touch it with your bare fingers, as this will greatly shorten the bulb's life, if it even work's at all. Use a tissue or something else in that order to handle the new bulb. Push the new bulb into the socket, put the socket back into the housing, and twist a quarter turn clockwise to secure the socket into the fix.Seems that you have to remove the coolant bottle(two screws), and also the unscrew the washer fluid bottle, after that you can reach the socket that holds the bulb. There is a wire that holds the bulb in. if you loosen the screw you can tip up the wire and be careful to leave it in place...also the long side of the wire seems to connect to ground wire for the light...

do you know what H type of bulbs you have?
some are just a twist other have a clip that needs to be pressed and let fold down to allow bulb removal.
in the engine comartment behind where the headlight are there are either rubber boots or clips that need to be removed to expose the back on the buld.
remove the retaining clip as mentioned above or gently twist he bulb to remove it. now remove the old bulb from its holding wire.
when inserting the new bulb do not touch the glass as oil from the skin and disrupt its performance.
reverse the removal process and do the same on the other side.
NOTE: the new bulbs elements are in a slightly different postion in the bulb than the old ones (no two bulbs are exactly alike) for best visibilty have you headlight realligned after bulb replacement.
