hi ihad the same problem yes you do have to take the head light out. you have to undo the hex bolt on top of light and then get a long screw driver as there are two little push down hooks , one on each side of head light but dont push to hard you may break them they sort of just clip under something down there. have a look in your owners manual as they tell you how to take the head light out. as what i have said sounds wrong some how but when you look at light and manual you will see what i mean.hope this helps

The "cut off" defined line of modern headlamps and the other related lens optics are nowadays so much better than the days of "sealed beams" and the "flat top" seperate beam fog lamps that I didn't miss not having fog lights in several previous cars.

Do you actually think that given the amount of use of fog lights thatit's worth it?

Straight lines and all that, I know exactly what you mean, do you make sure that when using philips screws that all the heads have to line up in a + no matter how tight you have to do it?

Everything has to match no matter what the Mrs (or Mr)says....

You are not alone!!!!!

Change them now or you will only have nightmares about it until morning.
