Pull the front bumper and grill off (not an easy task). If you decide to do this yourself remember that the 4 nuts that hold the bumper to the fenders are tighteners that hold sliders. these sliders will slide forward to a slot that will allow the bumper assy to come off... after you remove all of the plastic clips that hold the fairings onto the frame. This will give you access to the headlight capsule.I have one of the small bulbs out and was wondering do I need to remove the whole assembly to change just this one bulb?
That is so wild!!! The little light on the pass side on mine does the same thing. It goes out and when I notice I give the side of the capsule a good rap and it comes back on!LED upgrade while your in there? My small bulbs go out and if I tap on the light, they come back on... I was wondering how to get them out as well. Glad you asked.
Are you talking about the signal light on the side of the fender just behind the wheel? If so, what you suggest will work. The lamp in this thread is actually inside the headlamp assembly. To gain access you need to remove an access panel on the assembly. I've never done it either, but looking at the diagrams and photos, I can't see being able to use the method you're suggesting for the bulb in question. Again, no first hand experience with this one so it's just an opinion.i might be wrong here because i have never done this on my STS, but on the CTS guys turn there wheels all the way to one side where they can get more room in there, pop the fender liner off and then you have plenty of room to swap that bulb out...once again, i have never done this to my STS yet, but it seems legit to me and easy enough as i have done this on the CTS
I believe it's just a "parking" light...So, just what is the point of this little bulb anyway?
