Hi. I'm Mike from 1AAuto. We've been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

To do the headlight bulbs, we're going to reach in down here to access the bulbs. It's a little bit tight, but you can do it. It's not easy to reach in from this side. Then on the other side, do the same: reach in right here, to be able to access the bulbs.

For this video we removed the bumper and are going to remove the assembly to show you more detail of how to replace the bulbs, but you do not have to do this just to replace the bulbs. Here's your DRL bulb, or daytime running light bulb. Here's your high beam bulb. This is your regular headlight bulb. Here's your turn signal bulb and your marker bulb is on the side.

This is your marker bulb. This bulb is a 194. This is your turn signal bulb. You pull this right out. Grab it. This bulb is a 3457NAK or a 3457 amber bulb. Push that back in. This is the headlight bulb. This bulb is a H11. When installing these with the new one, you want to make sure you do not touch this. You do not want to get the oils from your hand on the bulb or it will burn out faster.

So, we have the high beam in here. This bulb is a 9005. Next we have the DRL, or daytime running light bulb. Pull this out. Again, make sure you don't touch the bulb when installing a new one, or it will not last as long, and get the oils from your hands on it. This one is also a 9005. Push that in. Again, we did not need to remove this whole assembly to access these bulbs, but we wanted to pull it out and show you more detail of how to do it.
