Changing a bulb on a K12 - get ready for an unnecissarily complicated and lengthy job. We usually have to get the whole lamp unit out of ours and even then it's a pain.

Look at section 7, I apologise mate I remembered what it said wrong, both the legislation and the act. Vehicle Lighting Regulations 1989 is where you should be looking to stay on the correct side of the law, that site you posted is a bit too vague and is incomplete.
Apologies again mate.
I know that one was a bit vague i was just a quick search, ive been running yellow lights for years I find it easier on the eyes and in my opinion better light, the first wee while I had problems with young traffic police high on power giving me jip till I sat down with them in to the back of the car and showed them the regulations had no problems anywhere else tho just my home town. And thats why I run E Marked covers that attach to the head lights on the inside so they are legal :)

I had to change a bulb on mine...in the dark...the gap on the O/S to get your hand in is...very tight...and I have girl hands o_O..
Wish I'd taken off the whole unit LOL...will do next time...anything's gotta be easier :p

Drove past like 4 traffics and quite a few normal cops, none even batted an eyelid at the yellows :L.

Do need to adjust the angle etc. as they are pointing really low and the full beam is really concentrated into one point so a poor spread, how do I do this? :L
