Reminder when changing your OEM halogen bulbs

As Axelaspeed and I found out yesterday changing out my burnt bulb, doing a simple task of taking out the bulb and putting the new one in is not as easy as it seemed. They don't tell you this in the manual, but you must take apart the plastic housing holding the bulb in first. Otherwise the replacement bulb won't fit nor work. Pictures will be coming soon, but just in case some of you weren't aware of this, it's handy to know

Pictures now...
