    ohhh, for the parking lamp bulbs (little bulbs), you dont need to do all that. Just remove the wheel well covers and reach up there. Feel for the plastic cap on the housing, turn it to open it and then u can grab the little parking lamp bulbs.

    To match a 9000k HID, look for LEDs that say "HID White". I have these in my parking lamps... http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=280114888155 They match very well with my 10000k low beams and fogs. And they fit perfect. I got pics of them installed here @ http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2635420/4

    Clear or tinted fogs, as well as clear or tinted sidemarkers, are made by WW, a forum member here. Goto this link for info. http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...ml#post1083959

    I'm surprised ROB didn't respond to this thread already. I would have figured he could of gave us step by step instructions on how to squeeze the Sun behind the grille of a CTS.



    I'm just messing with you ROB. Thanks always for the insight.

    Driver side headlight bulb replacement: Take air box components out. Rear of headlight assembly and bulb cover can be reached if you don' t have Sasquatch sized hands.

    Passenger side headlight bulb replacement: Unbolt fuse box and move off to the side. Again, rear of headlight assembly and bulb cover can be reached if you don' t have Sasquatch sized hands.

    I have large hands but was able to replace my HL bulbs using this method. It's a 15-20 minute job for each side.
    CTSjones, kyng1 and kyng1 like this.

    I always replace my low beams through the engine compartment as mentioned above by CT Essense. Takes about 20 min.

    You got the right bulbs? Is the polarity correct if this is an HID kit?

    Check the socket as well, I had one that burned-out. I'm assuming that you have the standard bulbs and not HIDs.
