    These are the steps to remove the bulb:


    • disconnect the battery (seriously, never work on xenon with the battery connected)
    • release the metal clip from the cover
    • remove the cover (might take some force the first time)
    • disconnect the cable on the xenonbulb (in case of a d1s, use a flathead screwdriver to wiggle the cable downwards)
    • release the 2 metal clips holding the bulb
    • pull out bulb
    Because of the lack of space in the engine compartement behind the lights I would advice removing the headlights. However, before you can remove them, you need to remove the front bumper, which is a bit work but can be done in your own garage...
