How To?

For those of you with a 6s that have changed there 194 bulbs (headlight); how do you remove them from the housing? There seems to be a few cables in the way making it very hard. I know how to open the cover but after that my brain is clueless.

Any help?

If you mean the parking/city lights, you just reach in and pull it straight out, no twisting or anything. I find it best to remove the airbox (Driver's side) to have more room for my arm. You may also wish to remove the bolts for the overflow tank for the radiator (Pass. side) for a little more room as well.

i understand that. its just that there are electrical lines, the radiator line and something else in the way preventing me from geting my hand in on the passenger side.

You can un-plug your main headlight harness on the passenger side. That seemed to help for me. Still a bitch to get in there but much easier without the harness in the way.
