READ DIRECTIONS FULLY BEFORE YOU START
NEVER TOUCH A HALOGEN BULB WITH YOUR HAND, THE BODY OIL CAN DAMAGE THE BULB, USE A PAPER TOWEL

Step 1: Pop the hood
Step 2: On the driver side, to far right and rear of the head lamp, there is a whiteretaining clipthat locks the headlamp into place, just pull it up. (see pics 1 & 2)
Step 3: The sameclip is on the left of the headlamp. (see pic #3) Remove the black plastic shrowd above the clip by first pulling out the black plastic push pins.
Step 4: Pull the headlight casing out
Step 5: Pull off the weather proof cup from behind the low beam
Step 6: Reach in a turn the light bulb (I believe counter clock wise)
Step 7: Unlock the bulb from its wiring hardness, but lift up on the clasp
Step 8: With a paper towel, pull the light bulb out of the socket
Step 9: With a paper towel, put the new light bulb in and make sure it locks to the wiring harness.
Step 10: Put the weatherproof cup back on
Step 11: Replace high beams the same way if needed
Step 12: Put fixture back into place
Step 13: Replace the whiteclips on the right and left sides to lock the fixture in
Step 14: Test bulbs
Step 15: repeat steps for passenger side. NOTE: This side is a little tight and the fixture will not come out as much as the driver side did, DO NOT PULL OUT MORE THEN ALLOWED
