I litterally just did this today in the parking lot of pep boys. On these cars you are only replacing a bulb not the entire assembely. 1. Turn the gray box behind the headlight counter clockwise and pull it back . You will see the plug into the bulb at that point. 2. Turn the black ring around/behind the bulb counter clockwise. 3. Pull bulb out and unplug. 4. Position new bulb in hole ensuring the slits are aligned and secure. Your claspe on the bulb back flat part will be up. 5. Plug connector into bulb. 6. Reverse step 2 7. Reverse step 1
