My front passenger parking light seems to have gone out. I looked in the manual and it says the dealer needs to replace it. Has anyone changed this light? Is it really that complicated that the dealer needs to change it?

If its the DRL that I'm thinking of its a little 194 LED bulb you can buy at Autozone or Walmart for $2 and just requires popping the hood and removing the headlight covers.

I'm thinking he means the 194 bulb, but he could also mean the front side marker, as well...both are 194 bulbs and both are easy to change out yourself.

Actually they aren't 194 bulbs, but a slightly more powerful cousin of theirs. They go by either the number W5W or 2825, and are available at most auto parts stores. They are a bit brighter than a 194, which you will notice if you replace one of them with a 194, it will be dimmer than the other side.
