Knowing the problem with difficulty of access in changing the front side light bulbs I made an attempt today to swap them for LED`s, when you first look at the lamp it looks as though there is two side lamp bulbs in each side but as I found out there is only one bulb that looks like two due to the reflector design, so firstly you have to undo the splash guard by removing the fasteners six in the arch and two underneath the bumper these in themselves are difficult to remove even with button removal tools I still managed to knacker three of them the two underneath are especially difficult to remove, then remove the wheel in order to pull the splash guard away from the arch in order to be able to get your arm in to the back of the lamp, get hold of  the bulb holder twist it clockwise and pull it away from the lamp, next problem there is very little slack in the wiring so you struggle to remove the bulb with one hand and then fit the LED. 

Then reverse the process - all in all its an awkward job to do, whatever happened to just undoing a couple of screws to remove the lamp lense and replace a bulb!

Mine only has one each side. Have you checked which bulb comes on when you turn the steering wheel?
