I need someone's expertise on whether or not I will be able to have A LOT better access to change my parking lights, by taking off the bumper of the car. What happened is now that I have HID installed for both my headlights and foglights (2 HID kits one H1 and one H3), there is no room for me to manoever so that I can get into the parking light area with my hands to change the burnt out bulb (because of the wiring and also ballasts of the HID kits)
Also, because when Speedstar (store that installed the kits for me) installed my H3 HID kit for the fogs, they had to drill into the dust cap of the fog light/parking light (the oval piece of plastic) and now that the wire for the H3 HID kit is going the the plastic dust cap, I can't even really take off the dust cap
So I'm wondering if I take off the bumper will I be able to gain better access to change my parking light bulbs? Or is there another way of changing the parking light bulbs?? (I know how to change parking lights by reading the post here on the forums by Blackmagik. I had no problems changing them before the installation of the HID kits
Is it possible after removing the bumper to remove the headlight housing to change the parking light bulbs that way?? I see 2 visible metal clips on the headlight housing when I lift up the hood of the car, do I remove those clips or is it something entirely different.
Is there a write up for how to remove the headlight housing? I didn't find any write up on the search
On a side note, I don't know why but my parking lights (I use 4 LED's from Autolumination.com and have used 2 LED bulbs) but my problem is that they seem to burn out quite quickly, sometimes it'll be all 4 LED's of the bulb that burn out other times it will be one of the 4 or 2 of the 4 LED"s on the LED bulb that burn out. I haven't had my parking lights (LED bulbs) last over 2-3 months without it burning out on me... I know the LED's are suppose to last, so why aren't my bulbs lasting?
Help pls on both issues
