I’ve found the combo of some PIAA halogens with aftermarket accessory lights to be a great light picture. The high beams are ridiculous...i could poach kangaroos at night..lol

It's been mentioned before- on Gen2 you do not have to remove the little screws. This is another, just as easy way.

It's the almost instant gratification that hooks you. However, with the price increases and the "Well two day delivery isn't quite that" delivery, my money seems to be going to other places than Amazon.

Disassembling all the black panels and reaching in there was the worst part of it. The LED bulb is held in by a small wire "gate" that has to be closed and "latched" to hold the bulb in place.



If there's a better way...then lets hear it. I'm ready to learn.

He's looking for a different way for removing panels, not for replacing bulbs. Although I have a tip for that too.

Ok, what you'll need is a pair of slip joint pliers, the longer the better. I'm not talking about Channel Lock offset head ones. I'm talking about el-cheapo pliers like the wife keeps in her little household tool bag.

Now, refer to your owner's manual about Dash Panels A & B. Those are the horizontal ones right and left. Remove them. Then remove the screws and rivets for Dash Panels C & D. You must do Panel C (the right) before Panel D. You won't be able to completely remove them but pop them out of their moorings. Look on the back, you'll see a knurled knob that connects the headlight adjusting cable to the knob assembly. Reach in with the pliers and unscrew the knob. Remove the panel.

Reassembly is just the opposite.

Now, for headlight bulb replacement (among many other things), I've found 2 sets of tools to be invaluable, both cheap from Harbor Freight:

- long handled needle nosed pliers, 1 straight and one 45 deg. curved;
- long handled hemostat, again 1 straight and one 45 deg. curved.

It's amazing where your hands will fit when you have these. And in case you need to hold something thicker at a distance, has you ever seen these long reach vise grips? Adjustable, cool as h3ll!
