    I purchased the bulb for the headlight but am having
    trouble removing the
    old bulb . Any instructions on how to remove old bulb and install
    new bulb
    would be most appreciated . The car's headlights are the regular
    headlights for
    this year and model .

    Thank You Mason

    I do these replacements by sight when I see them and don't remember which
    cars have which setups, so I'll give you some generic instructions. If
    you don't have the particular piece to do one of the steps, move on to the
    next step. I guarantee that'll happen at least once, because none of the
    cars have the plastic dust cover (step 1) as well as a rubber dust cover
    (step 3).

    1. If you have a plastic dust cover on the back of the lamp, remove it.

    2. Disconnect the electrical connector from the bulb.

    3. If you have a rubber dust cover over the back of the lamp, remove it.

    4. Push the spring clip in and move it away from the detent, releasing
    the bulb. There may be one or two ends on the clip that are held in
    place, and the direction necessary to move varies with car. You'll need
    to decipher how the clip attaches.

    Thank you for your quick response . My car has a rubber dust cover I
    was afraid
    to pull the rubber cover off for fear of not getting it back on. I was
    able to peel the
    cover back but it seems like it is attached fairly securely . My
    question is do
    I just need to pull harder and is it easy to reattach the cover to the
    back of the
    headlight opening ?

    Thanks Again Hyundaitech

    If you've got the electrical connector off, the rubber dust cover should
    come off and go back on relatively easily.

    Hello Hyundaitech

    Thanks again . I was only able to remove a small piece of
    plastic from
    the back of the electrical connector . All this did was expose some
    wires but
    did not remove the elelectrical connector. I was able to snap the
    piece of plastic in
    place . Hopefully my last question to you is as I do not want to be a
    pest , how
    do I remove the electrical connector .

    Thanks for all your help Mason

    The electrical connector should pull off the headlamp. There may be a
    little tab on one side you need to depress to release the lock.
