Default Remove headlight on 2004 S-Type

Hi,

Does anyone know how to remove a headlight WITHOUT removing the bumper from a 2004 S-Type? Tried to retrieve a loose bulb inside without any luck (or any other tips on this).

Thought that I saw somewhere that somebody had accomplished this. Any help much appreciated.

Thanks,
Boog

As far as I know the only way is to remove the bumper cause you have to access some bolts that you cant get too with the bumper on. Here is the write-up for removing the bumper.

If the bulb still has some metal on it, not sure if you are talking about a whole bulb or broken fragments you might be able to get a magnetic wand and get it through the headlight bulb opening. I have one of these in my tool box and it helps alot when dropping stuff.

If you can get access to an air compressor maybe you can try blowing it out with that. I would try everything I could to get it out before resorting to having to take off your bumper just to get something out.
