headlight question...

One of my head lights just went out so I need to replace them. Don't want to go to dealership as they will charge me an arm and a leg for it and I just replaced the engine recently as it is. Was looking at the EStore and noticed they have a MTEC lighting package. Will I need anything besides that to install the new bublbs?

May as well upgrade if I'm replacing right?

tools to either lift your car onto jack stands or wrenches to take the frontend off. there are tutorials in other forum sections. personally i found that the mtecs are really nice looking but really cheap quality. there are a few threads about them too. most say bad quality. i had both low beams and one fog light burn out inside of 4 months.

I've had MTECs for well over a year, & I bought them used. So quality goes both ways I guess.

K well good sounds like it's not to hard to replace the bulbs then. I just need to get the bulb fixed quick before I get a ticket.

best way to do it is taking out the headlight, then putting in the bulbs wile the headlight its out, so that way the bulb dosent touch anything thumbsup

^^ too much effort, just stick your hand in there and take the old bulb out and be careful when you put the new one in

yeah... and you dont need to jack the car up to take off the front bumper either...

my car is lowered and there's still enough room to take off the bumber w/o jacking the car up.

Never replaced bulbs so I had no clue. didnt feel like paying even more money for screwing something up when I've just bought a new engine.
