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.

Step 5

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.
