Here is how to access this bulb. Feel free to contact me with any problems or questions!

  • Make sure the headlamp switch is in the OFF position.

    Notice: Avoid touching the bulb or letting the bulb come in contact with anything damp. Oil from your skin or moisture on the bulb can cause the bulb to explode when the bulb is turned on. If either comes in contact with the bulb, clean the bulb with alcohol or a suitable degreaser and wipe the bulb dry.

  • Remove the bulbs from the headlamp capsules by reaching from the engine compartment and by twisting the bulb counterclockwise.

  • Remove the 2 long screws from the top of the radiator support.

  • Pull forward the headlamp assembly (3).
  • Disconnect the electrical connector (2) from the burned out bulb assembly (1).
