    Hey guys,

    On the way to work today a "Dipped Right Headlight" error appeared on my DIS.. As expected, the drivers side headlight was out (passenger still on).

    I upgraded the bulbs to 6k ones earlier in the year and still have the originals at home.. Is there any way i can replace the bulb without having to go through the hassle of removing the bumper?

    Any How-To's, pictures, YouTube clips or tips would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    If you search on YouTube I think there's a video, I think it will be hard to do with the headlights on the car. I've got a pair of single xenon headlights to go on the car and I can't even get the bulbs back in :/

    Take your wheel off and drop your arch liner down. This will give you enough access to get into the light unit and change the bulb. You may need a pair of long nose pliers to put the wiring on with
