DS 3: In the event of a breakdown / Changing a bulb

DS 3 2016-2023 Owners Manual

DS 3. Changing a bulb In some weather conditions (e.g. low temperature or humidity), the presence of misting on the internal surface of the glass of the headlamps and rear lamps is normal; it disappears after the lamps have been on for a few minutes.

DS 3. Changing a bulb The headlamps have polycarbonate lenses with a protective coating:

  • Do not clean them with a dry or abrasive cloth, nor with detergent or solvent products.
  • Use a sponge and soapy water or a pH neutral product.
  • When using a high-pressure washer on persistent marks, do not keep the lance directed towards the headlamps, lamps or their edges for too long, so as not to damage their protective coating and seals.

DS 3. Changing a bulb Changing a bulb must only be done with the ignition off and after the headlamp / lamp has been switched off for several minutes - risk of serious burns!

Do not touch the bulb directly with your fingers; use a lint-free cloth.

It is essential only to use anti-ultraviolet (UV) type bulbs, so as not to damage the headlamp. Always replace a failed bulb with a new bulb of the same type and specification. To avoid lighting imbalance, replace the bulbs in pairs.

DS 3. Changing a bulb After changing a bulb

To refit, carry out the operations in reverse order to removal.

Close the protective cover very carefully to guarantee the sealing of the lamps.
