Peugeot 206 – Change front bulbs (Dipped/Full beam/Side)

Having needed to change the side light and dipped beam light on my Peugeot 206 today, I looked on the Internet and couldn’t find any simple diagram on how to change the side light (having only changed full and dipped beam bulbs before)… so I thought it would be good to create a simple guide on changing bulbs on a Peugeot 206… though I suspect this maybe pretty similar for other Peugeot’s.

This guide is based on the change I’ve just done, which was on the front right bulbs. I’ll try and add fog lights or rear lights as and when I next replace them.

Pricing for Peugeot 206 bulbs

I’ve bought mine from GSF and EuroCarParts in the past, but recently started buying mine online, as the price, particularly for higher intensity ones (for better visibility) seems to be better. Current Amazon pricing is below:

    Hi James,

    Thanks a lot for that. I’ll be doing mine tomorrow. Have you got any steps for doing the indicator lights and also the rear brake lights?

    Thanks again 🙂

    Changed passenger side main bulb on a 53 reg 206 using your guide. Ten minutes, and I’m the least practical person I know. Thanks so much for the guide

    Thanks very much for the very well prepared video guide – making things simple for unclipping the screen wash filler pipe. The bulb change was about 10 minutes start to finish.
