Flat head slim screw driver
Star screw driver to remove two screws from fascia
Wire cutters maybe required depending on type of bulb you purchase. I needed them
Right... To beginh with, feel for two screws at the bottom of the large fascia which has the coin pocket. One is on the left side and one on the right. Once they're out you can gently pull the whole section away. Make sure to disconnect the plugs for the fog light and headlight switch. Mine is the far right in the pic

A friend had a spare bulb this is the company he bought it from in the USA. From Lings Honda parts its £4.30 for this bulb. I don't know how much Holdcroft Honda would
sell this to us for though?
New vs old
New bulb placed in holer. Be careful when poking the bulb wires through not to bend them as they are delicate.
Here's the new bulb attached
Quick check before it all goes back together and hey presto. Job done
It took me about 45 minutes to do as I have never replaced this. What I will advise is that patience is require for such a small bulb to replace.
I hope this helps folks.
