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

We'll take a flat blade tool, a screwdriver or a trim tool, and pry right in there. I'm going to pull this lens off.

The bulb is right here. What you're going to do is, you're going to push the bulb in, push it down, and then you're going to twist it. When you twist it, then you can pull it out. You can twist it to the right or twist it to the left.

This bulb is an A12V8W-J bulb. To reinstall the bulb, we're going to slide these two tabs on the side like that. Push it down, then twist it to the right until it lines up with the slot right there. We can test it to make sure it works.

That's good, so now we can reinstall the cover. We're going to slide the cover in this way, and then snap it right in.
