    Headlight Removal - HELP!

    I got stock HID's on the car. I'm trying to replace my burnt high beams which are regular H7 bulbs. Now I took the rubber cover off and was able to easily unplug the wire from the bulb. Problem is I cannot figure out how to take this bulb out! Is there a trick to do this? Seems to be held down by thin metal of some sort. There is no room to see what it is that is actually holding the bulb... I can only feel it. Can anyone here shed me some light?

    Push it in and twist counter clockwise. I am not really sure, what you are able to reach? But that's the way most bulbs are. Never had the HIDs out though...

    Squeeze the metal clips that hold the light in, and gently move them down away from the lightbulb. These instructions usually come with the new bulbs.

    BTW, some guides tell you that you have to remove the battery to get to the drivers side bulbs. It was a very tight squeeze, but I did my high beam without removing the battery. if the low beam goes, not sure if you can do it without removing the battery.
