Whoa, do you have HID bulbs or just regular headlights? Just replacing the headlight bulb if you have normal headlights is just like any other car. Remove the cover on the back of the lamp and remove the bulb.

Hi Danny,

HID? There's one bulb that looks like a projector bulb (low)and one halo type bulb(high).

Expert:  Danny replied 7 years ago.

HID is xenon lights, really bright lights that are more like the wavelength of the sun. They're bright white or bluish, not a standard bulb.

Not xenon lights. Does the projector type bulb require drilling?

There is only xenon and standard bulbs if their bulb requires drilling them that has to do with their parts.
The bulb is only $25 or so from the dealer I recommend you buy there.
