    Be wary what you buy. I bought some and they didn't last long at all. I'm on my second set in a few months and these have now started flickering:(

    Just take the cover off of the back of the headlight, feel round for the 2 wires going to the side light bulb (use a small mirror and torch if you cant see much) and just pull the 2 wires, you will have to pull hard but dont worry it should not break. When I first changed mine I was worried about breaking the cables but they are a lot stronger than they seem.

    Also if you have fat fingers, remove the connector from the back of your xenon bulb and you will have even more space to get your sausage fingers in there!!
