    I know it's a simple thing, but i though i'd make a tutorial :)

    You will need:

    Bi-Xenon headlights
    D1s bulbs
    Needle nosed plyers

    To start, take the clip off the back of the headlight cover for the dipper beam

    And then take the cap off. You will be faced with this

    [​IMG]

    Undo the 2 butterfly clips that hold the bulb in place

    [​IMG]

    I tried taking the connector with my fingers, but it's a tight squeeze. So i grabbed some needle nosed plyers and gently pulled the cable and connector away from the bulb

    [​IMG]

    Next, remove the bulb carefully, trying not to let the actual bulb touch anything

    Next, place the new bulb in place, making sure the bulb is the correct way round

    [​IMG]

    Put the connector back on and put the butterfly clips back in place

    [​IMG]

    All done :)

    Anyone want some Phillips Xenstart D1s bulbs? :sly:

    Finally Smudge_Don notices the D1S bulbs that were "definitely" D2S in "every set [of bi-xenon headlights] that i've seen". I did say not to guess!!!!! :moa:
