What knob are we talking about here ?

There's a cover on the back of the headlights you have to remove, then just reach in and pull straight back on the 194 parking bulb.

Are you pulling on the right bulb ?

Reading Topic: How do I get out the parking light

What brand did you use? I just installed all my lights today. Polarg Hyper White for parking, Osram Diadem for turn, Philips Vision..194(forgot the name..came free with the Diadem) for sidemarkers, Catz Azzuri White for the Low Beam. So far it turned out well, just that I need to upgrade the fog light so the yellow beam won't interfere with the Azzuri White.

Easiest way for me was to take off the front bumper. It might have been the long way out(only took about 15 mins since it was my first time) but there was plenty of room for you hands and eyes!

Reading Topic: How do I get out the parking light

i ordered all my LED's from autolumination. Ive got PIAA xtreme white Plus bulbs for the low beams, I didnt change the high beams yet. Ive been trying different bulbs for the turn signals and im not really happy with any of them yet. I had white LED's in there (rear); but i couldnt stand how much faster it made the blinker, so i changed them to eurolite ultra white bulbs, and im not happy at all with them (plus they cost me 19 buck for 2 of them, and they suck). so im gunna return them and keep trying till I find something I like. Maybe ill try out what you have and see if they make me happier. I also have some crappy ultra whites for the reverse light, but id really like a blue color, so i might just go with a blue LED for that one. I also just put blue LED's in my parking lights. yeah, its illegal, but it looks rad

The Osram is nice, just that its only nice when its off. When in use..its the same color as stock(maybe brighter). The polarg parking 194 bulb is alright too, its whiter/blue'er but not brighter. So I might switch the Philips 194 bulbs from sidemarkers to my parking light and see how that goes. Which Led did you use for the rear blinker(what model number and how many LEd?)

Where'd you get all that? How much did it set you back?

Reading Topic: How do I get out the parking light

I got 3 sets of Polarg Hyper White 194 bulbs for about $8(with shipping) each on ebay. Osram Diadem from powerbulbs for about $25..came free with Philips 194 bulbs. (refer to meat6 instructions to install the Osram Diadem..tx meat6). Catz Azurri White bulbs $45ish with mazda6club rebate at liteswap. 6 leds for autolumination..25 total. So far I ran about $110 on bulbs. Not bad considering others who ran 400 on HIDS alone(I know its worth it, but Im short on funds).

The lights look good and bright, but the fogs were too yellow for the new azzuri whites. It didn't blend in well so I decided to turned off the fogs, but I couldn't as well without the fogs. So the fogs play a major role in my setup. Im probably gonna buy another set of Azzuri whites for the fogs.
