Problem with headlight?
I read the manual all it tells you is how to take out the right side headlamp. I can't get the drive side headlamp out to put in new bulbs. How you get that one out.Do you have to take the front bumper off. I took out the 2 screws and all the lights to it. I can't get it out. Is there another hidden screw? What's the deal?

you dont have to take out the whole housing to put in new bulbs. most of the bulbs just twist out.

i cant get my hands in there, i took the whole headlight out, take the front end out a little so you can have access to the bolts thats holding the headlight.

are you talking about the low beam headlight? if so...dont unscrew it...its just latched on. The piece of metal over the bulb, if you push towards the front of the car and pull upwards a little on the opposite side of the screw it will let go of the bulb. then all you have to do is pull the bulb out. hope that was clear enough.

the high and low are both latched down with a metal thing that does not need to be unscrewed. It was hard putting the high beam bulbs in I suggest you take the headlaght out.

that little metal crap is a biatch to get off, but they are just hooked on there. no unscrewing needed. its in a tight spot too. i took off the covers for the fuse box near there, and that gave me just enough room to get my hand up in there.

yes they are legal and DOT approved or whatever. Ecelica would not sell them if they were illegal now would they?

drl is the same bulb as the high beam just running on a lower wattage.

I've changed all my bulbs and never had to remove either headlight housing.

Just find a friend (or gf/wife) with smaller hands if you can't quite fit yours.. taking out the entire housing takes too much time! cool
