    Use that stuff its high quality lasts a long time... as for changing it you should be able to get at it from the bottom of the car.

    There are access panels under the car right behind the bumper. I believe it's two bolts that hold it closed.

    Best way I found is to put your headlights up and reach your hand down into the front bumper, then twist the socket assembly out of the lens and remove the bulb.

    I've tried the reaching through the headlights and through the air intake right below the light and that doesn't work for me. I have big hands and thick arms. Easiest is to remove the two 10mm bolts on the flap on the bottom of the car directly in front of the tires.

    actually, riding it up on the curb like in your avatar should help you access the panel much better

    lmao, i just changed the bulb a little bit ago, thats exactly what i did. it took me awhile to figure it out but i did, if i would've read ur post earlier maybe i wouldn't have looked like such a trying to figure out a way under there(i dnt have a jack).

    thanks again for all the help, it was hella easier than i thought it would be. when i first looked under the car i never saw those little access panels.
