ALTISE PARK LIGHT GLOBE REPLACEMENT

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have just purchased a 2004 Altise, auto, white, 150,000 km.

My question is does the headlight have to be removed to replace the parklight globes ?   the are easy to replace on my 2003 Sportivo which has a different style of headlight

any answers ?

02-04 have the same headlights - the sportivo version just has a black housing - the 05-06 on the other hand has the indicator bulbs switched from outside to inside and the parkers have been separated

No,  the Altise & Sportivo have same shape headlight but different globe position layout.  the Sportivo parklights are next to the grille & the Altise parklights are on the exact opposite end of the headlight

I have been told that they are Altise park light globes can be changed by removing the inner wheel arch guard liner to access the parklight bulb socket

they are both GEN 5

At lunchtime yesterday I managed to change ONLY the l/h parklight on the Altise, took me about 3/4 hour. On a hoist I had to remove the wheel & most of the guard liner. Then "tuck" myself up under the guard & while holding a pen-light in my mouth had, to "snake" my arm up thru a maze of cables & bracketry, but did finally manage to reach the parklight bulb socket and finally change the globe to an LED one.  When the scratches on my arm heal :) and I mentally recover I will attempt to change the r/h one
