Default How to Replace HID Bulbs Without Removing Bumper

This is just an FYI for all the members who had questions about this. Yes it is possible to replace the bulbs without removing the bumper.

Personally I like to remove the bumper as it only takes just a few minutes. Plus you can take your time and install everything the correct way.

  1. Remove half moon shaped wheel well plastic liner up starting up front to approx middle, and bend the liner behind brake rotor so it does not bother you. Careful with clips- they cost money.

  2. Twist big cup counterclockwise about 1/4 turn and pull it out to access connector, then disconnect connector and let it hang there in peace. Space is somewhat limited, be patient.

  3. IGNORE that arrow on circle shaped grey plastic ring that holds the bulb in place- many people look at this arrow and naturally think that the part needs to be twisted and end up breaking it. DO NOT twist! INSTEAD, using a fine tip small screwdriver, gently pry off bottom tab (mind you, upper tab is not accessible, so leave upper tab alone) and pull the ring off. Be patient and do not break the part- it costs about 15 bucks from dealer.

  4. When istalling new bulb, procedure is exactly reversed- DO NOT twist, do not apply excessive force, bulb eventually will find its own place and ring will snap in.

Default Re: How to Replace HID Bulbs Without Removing Bumper

Eddy,

When I swapped my ballast for my HID's, I actually did one side at a time. I just pulled each side of the bumper as I was working on it...I didn't pull off the whole bumper. You can just pull the corner at the fenders, and you'll have plenty of room.
