HID Headlights, Small Bulb

OK guys I will try and explain this one and I hope it makes sense. Sorry I forgot to take a pic yesterday.

My wife has a 2004 SRX with the HID headlights. Looking at then from the front there is a little light bulb to the lower inside of the lens (both of them). I know when we lock and unlock the car via remote they flash, and when the lights are on they are also on. I have no clue what they are for but one is out. I have looked in the manual and it says nothing about them. Does anyone know the bulb number and secondly is it something I can change on my own. I have not really looked into changing them yet but I figured I would get the bulb first.

Thanks in advance.

I can tell you a little bit about them, but I don't know the bulb type or how to change them.

They are "city lights" (what euro manufacturers call similar lights) or parking lights - note that when you turn on the low beams, the amber DRLs go out, leaving no other parking light on the front of the car except for these small bulbs. I think that on some Caddies, the square amber lights in teh bumper serve as DRLs and Parking Lights and Turn Signals - but on the SRX they are only DRLs and Turn Signals.

I haven't yet had to figure out how to get to the back of the light assemblys for bulb changing puposes, but I imagine some combination of grill, front bumper, or fender liner removal is required.
