Have you figured this out??

If not has anyone else figured it out?

Maybe it's just me and my big hands having problems getting in there but so did my wife and she's got tiny hands. But is there an easier way to get them out so I can swap out the bulbs??

IIRC the only way to switch out the parking bulbs is to remove the headlight assembly. Although you might have access to it if you remove the splash guard but I am not 100% sure. I do know there are a few clips and a few bolts to remove the bumper. Then you should have 2 bolts holding the headlight in. After you remove those two bolts the headlight comes right out and the parking light is easy to switch. It sounds like a headache to remove all of these things, but truly you could do it in less than 40 min about.

Yeah that's what I was figuring. The shitty thing is that it's way too cold out to do something like that so I'm gonna have to wait for nicer weather... :(

they just twist out,
but if you dont have skinny hands,
youll have to go the full nine yards and take out the whole thing.
i got mine out after some wrist torture!
i remember one of them being really crappy to get out, driver i think,
but it can be done without taking the whole headlight out!

and if you want ill take a pic of my hand in there so you can see where to enter.
it boggled me for a minute then i just started reaching my hand through different openings till i could reach it,
then with my fingertips , i twisted the lamp housing

Yeah I think I tried every opening possible. I just think my hands being too big won't allow me to get in there good.. :mad:

Hey Konjure... it's 10 years later, but if you could provide some pics of how you were able to maneuver your hand into the light housing to replace the parking light bulb... it would be immensely appreciated.
