Parking Lights - How to replace

Parking Lights are 194/168 WEDGE bulbs (12volt 5watt)

Required tools
* None

Installation to both sides is simple and can be completed in about 5 minutes...

On the driver's side, give a half twist clockwise. (right-hand-drive is opposite)
On the passenger's side, give a half twist counter-clockwise. (right-hand-drive is opposite)

At this point, the housing simply pulls out. Now you have access to the light bulb - which just pulls out as well.

Replace the bulb with your new lighting, making sure the new bulb is securely set in the socket.

Re-install is in reverse sequence of directions.

And you're done!

You mentioned nothing about taking the engine cover off to do the passenger side and I can't get the screws/clips out of it for the life of me. I've played with them and a screwdriver for 15 minutes and they won't budge. Any suggestions?

if youre meaning the tips on the plastic covers its very easy, you just take the tip of a key or a screwdriver (I recommend a Phillips) and push into the circle on the top of it. Then take a flat head (or finger-nail) and wedge it between the plastic and the lock to pull it up and off.
