    Default Replacing Mini Bulb right below low beam H11 (drivers side)

    I cannot figure out how to get the mini bulb out of the headlight housing to change it. I can't tell if it rotates in like the H11 or pulls out or has some kind of release clip. I can get my hand in there and rotate it but that's it.

    Thanks!

    on the 2007 you squeeze the two tabs, then pull straight out. .......Takes a minimum of three hands with the headlamp on a bench and some very long needle nose pliers, long thin screwdrivers, hooks or whatever you can find to get the bulb socket out. Usually something plastic breaks during the process.

    I couldn't get mine out while the headlight assembly was still in the car. Hoonk has an accurate description of the process! I decided to polish the plastic on mine ('05), so I pulled both assemblies out and put all new bulbs in.

    +1 to this!
    Bumper cover really is a 10 minute job! The only way, in my opinion, to do anything with the headlamps.
