Unclip the end of the metal hold-down wire (spring clip) and pivot it away from the bulb. This step can be a little tricky because you literally cannot see what you are doing and have to rely your sense of feel - Use a flashlight to get a good look at the hold-down wire before you complete this step.

Step 4

Pull the bulb straight out of the headlight assembly.

Install the new bulb in the reverse order of removal. Make sure the rubber weather seal is firmly and completely seated around the entire circumference.
