Changing the headlight bulbs, difficult?


I've been wanting to change out my headlight bulbs for some xenon white ones, but I'm kind of scared to mess with them.

I can barely see what I'm doing, tried to take off the top healdight housing bolt to maneuver it around but that biatch wouldn't budge!

Does the rubber piece come all the way off? I can see the silver clip thing in it, do I just need to undo that and the bulb pops out? (I've already seen the install in "installs" btw) Thanks in advance everyone smile

Yeah, undo that clip and it "swings" open like a door on a hinge.. then unplug the light and pull it out (you might have to twist first, I can't remember).

If you have really huge hands or something, you could always undo the three bolts holding in the headlight housing and just pull it out so you can get a really good look at what you're doing.. it's time consuming, but at least you'll be able to see everything idunno
