Hello my fellow Cadillac friends, I Just wanted to know if there is an easy way to replace that little peanut light in the bottom corner of the headlight assembly.

I really would appreciate any feedback on this guys, Thanks.

You either have to remove the bumper our remove the intake and fuse box to get to them from the rear

Thanks bud, I'll try removing the fuse box and intake in the morning.

Thanks again.

Okay last question. I pulled the intake out and now I'm looking at the backside of the headlight assembly. Now, are the peanut lights located behind the grey plastic cover where my hi/lo beams are or are they located somewhere else?

Should be an access door you need to remove on the inner side of the headlight assembly

On the inner side? So does that mean I still have to remove the grey plastic cover to get to the bulb? If So, which plastic cover do I need to remove because I see two. One on the back and one the side of the headlight assembly.

remove the onw on the side. You'll see a thin set of wires running to the peanut light location. The bulb holder "turns" out of it's location - try to spin it with your fingers. Hope this helps - i got to do mine on the passanger side. Still have no idea how hard moving the fuse box is....

Ah okay. I always thought the grey plastic cover on the side of the headlight assembly is where the ballast was located.

Thanks Man.

I believe the ballast is located at the bottom of the headlight assembly.

Hard to remember. It might be, but I know for a fact that the quickest route to the peanut light is through the side one

okay i found the bulb and it was pain in the @ss to take out. turns out that my new 9 smd led's didn't fit because it was too long, so i'm gonna order 5 smd led's instead and i'm pretty sure they'll fit just fine.
