We have just bought our X trail Aventura DCI and it is now a week old in our company. We are still learning!! Is there anyone who can help us work out which headlight bulbs to use and how to fit them since we are out and about in Italy next week and need to take some spares.

They are H7 bulbs, you pull off the rubber back and then unclip the spring metal bit. The bulbs are very easy to change - takes about 5 mins per bulb.

For travelling abroad (which I do often) I bought a set of headlight protectors and put the headlight converters on those.

So I just clip them on and off and don't have to keep cleaning sticky of the headlights and then putting new ones on every time.
As an addendum - I changed the bulbs for the extreme bright ones (Philips won the Auto Express test, but I got Halfords ones at two for the price of one).

These give better brightness in the UK and, most important, compensate for the loss in light due to the continental adaptors when driving abroad.

When abroad I always found the lights too dim until I got the extra bright ones.

From what I can see in the electronic service manuals, Both the T30 and the T31 use H4 bulbs for the main headlights.

Yep; Definately H4 bulbs. The only ones that are different are models with factory fit Xenon headlights - they have H1 full beam bulbs. Thinking about it - if you have an Aventura then you should have Xenons?
