    If you only want to change the bulb (lamp) go to this site listed below and use USER and PASSWORD to gain access to the site (type in those words). At the bottom of the main area choose ARRC and pick your year, make and model then Repair Procedures. Then Chassis Electrical, Lighting, Headlights and follow the tutorial. Hope this is what you needed.

    I just did this, and thought I'd post how I managed:

    On the passenger side you need to remove the clean air intake. It's a big piece of black plastic. Pulls right up. No big.

    Locate the bulb and remove the clip from the bottom. There is a plastic lock that you have to push while you push to casing down. I had to use the tip of a screwdriver to put enough force on the clip-casing to manage this.

    Now the hard part:
    There is a black ring that locks the bulb into place. This has to be twisted (facing the toward the car) counter clockwise. Molded into the plastic are the words lock and open. Twist toward open. This is a massive pain in the . I had to use a screwdriver to get a little bit of leverage, make sure you're only twisting the black plastic ring and not the bulb. The bulb does not turn.

    Once the ring is removed the bulb twists and comes right out.

    Follow the directions in reverse making sure not to touch the new bulb's glass with your fingers. Apparently the oil from your fingers can shorten the bulbs life... or so I've been told.

    It takes a little while and that damn lock ring is tough to get off. But its not that bad.

    Good luck
