My solution is a piece of dowelling about 30cms long. Screw a small cup hook in one end. Use the flat end to push the spring clip off then you can release the clip nearest the centre of the car by hand. when you have changed the bulb fit the cover, put the clip you released by hand back into place. Then (you might need a torch to see it) use the cup hook on the end of the dowel to pull the other clip back into place. My X type has blown 3 dipped head light bulbs in a year. Using this method I can change a bulb in about 10-15 mins.

I know it sound obsured but i found the easiest way without damaging anything or your hands is to take the front bumper off, it's about two hrs work.
Really there is no easy way unless you can find somebody with really small hands and even then its hard.hope this helps

Open the hood of your vehicle and disconnect the battery's negative-terminal cable with a socket wrench.
Remove the cover from the fuse block and locate the high-beam headlamp fuse. Most vehicles have two, one for the right headlamp and one for the left headlamp. For the exact location of the fuse, check through your vehicle's user's guide.
Use a fuse puller tool to remove the high-beam headlamp fuse and install a replacement fuse in its place. Reattach the cover to the fuse block.
Reach behind the high-beam headlamp and disconnect its electrical connector by pulling it straight out. Rotate the old bulb counterclockwise and pull it out to remove it.
Install a replacement bulb and reattach the electrical connector to the headlamp. Consult your vehicle's user's guide for the exact type of bulb to use. Close the hood when done.

How to replace bulb in front bumper turn signal housing 1995 jag xj6

  • Identify the blown bulb. Note that if a headlight bulb has blown, the dip beam is on the outside and the high beam is on the inside. Turn off the ignition switch and light switches.

  • Open the hood and replace any blown headlight bulbs. Press the plastic spring clips and remove the bulb holder from the assembly. Pull the bulb out of the bulb holder and replace it with a new bulb. It only fits one way. Be sure not to touch the bulb's glass. Replace any parking lights at the same time, they are in the headlamp unit too.

  • Remove the front turn signal light unit in the bumper to change the turn signal bulb. Push gently on the inside edge and insert a blade between the bumper and the lens at the outside edge. Compress the spring and remove the lens. Fit a new lamp by inserting it into the plug. The side marker light is changed using a similar process.

  • Open the trunk to replace the rear fog light, stop light, tail light, reversing light and turn signal light. Remove the rear light cover and turn the bulb holder fastener 90 degrees counter clockwise. Remove the expired bulb, fit a new one and replace the parts, turning the bulb holder clockwise.

  • Thanks..

    Hi All, Got a good one for you here!!! Work this out if you can!!

    Did you change bulb to see if that helps? Corroded pins on the bulb? If the relay was faulty it should affect both sides.
