Do you have any stories about replacing burned out bulbs? I know it's soon yet_but is it the same as those doing HIDs?_The engine bay looks filled up...particularly in the front corners.:confused:

Haha... forgot it...

I gave up when I was putting in my HIDs... Lol I ended up sticking them in the foglights, and now, everytime I drive at night, I get mad because it looks really good, but it is not in the headlights where I wanted. Lol
Sorry... A little rant there.

Anyway, I know they you can not access them from the top, and I believe, from looking and what I have read is that the front bumper must actually come off. Hopefully some other people who have been through this can offer up some insight.

I read Yefeng's postings in the Mods section,"Help with HIDs',before asking this question._ It sounded like a nightmare.___Is it possible you have to pay to have your front fascia removed just to replace a freaking burned out bulb?_How did you get the HIDs in the fogs?

You know, removing the front fascia to change bulbs wouldn't be something new to this car, as many others in recent history have been the same. I recall our '00 Chrysler 300M was exactly this way, both for lights and the battery.

For the 'Bu, hmm, maybe there is a short cut...but I haven't dug deep enough into people's posts to find out.

HIDs in the fog lights was pretty simple, just take out about 4 of the pins holding in the fender well, pull it off to the side, and you have a clear access point to the fog lights from there. Just switch them out and push the pins back in.

The headlights... I am still looking at that one :/
