Hi,

I damaged the lens on my daytime running lights (drivers' side). I have purchased the new unit to fit. Can I replace this through removing the wheel and going through the wheel arch? Or does the bumper have to be removed?
Do you

Hi,

This vehicle isn't offered in the US, but I will do my best to help.

On most vehicles, you can access the fog lamp and assembly from under the front bumper. Based on the model year, there will likely be a plastic covering under the engine. If you remove that, you should have access.

Let me know what you find.

Hello,

On your model Captur the front bumper will need to be removed.

Unclip the bonnet opening cable sheath stop (5) from the opening element lock.

Unclip the front bumper by pulling at (6) in the direction of the arrow (7).
Slightly lift the upper section of the front bumper.
Remove the front bumper following the direction of the arrow (8). (This operation requires two people). See image 6.
