You see that plastic piece on the bottom of your old light?

That needs to go onto the new light.

Pull the old light out of the plastic socket, and put the new light in its place.

You might have to pull hard.


Pull from the base, not the bulb itself.

You never want to directly touch the bulb.

It's kinda like plugging in a plug into a wall socket.

Yeah, they are...

Wiggle it back and forth as you pull.

Not an entire new housing. At least, not with most lights. I think you can get it that way though.


Pull like a bitch and wiggle it. It will eventually come out.

It has to. wink

Also, if you still can't pull it out, pry it out.

Get a flat head screwdriver, or a butter knife, and get it between the metal base and the plastic.

Make sure you have the right bulbs...the left bulb looks like a 9005 bulb which you are replacing with your H7. This would be impossible. I think you may have you low beam and high beam bulb confused.

Yeah, my low beam MTECH that I bought didnt fit into the low beam connecter thing because the MTECH metal thing (sorry dont know its called) where you plug in is too wide. I had to take a plier to make it a little smaller and it fits well.
