I was considering putting hyperwhite bulbs in my car (since I dont have HID), so took a look under the hood to see how difficult it would be to change the bulb. Are my eye's deceiving me, or do I have to remove the bumper to take the headlamp assembly out so I can get to the bulb?

You can ask Dave (Dave079) or Al (NismoKid) about it. They've both installed aftermarket HIDs.

I think Josh was going to try to get a how to from someone for clearing out the headlight, that should include this in it too. Hopefully the guy can do it for him

Unfortunately, it seems more involved that what my facilities (or lack thereof) will allow. I rent, no garage.


Rental office won't allow us to work on cars in our parking lot.

That's my friend's situation too, but he seriously need to do some brake work, so we just worked in his parking lot anyway. Haha

Tell your rental place that you're fixing a flat so you need to remove the tires. I have pics, let me bring the up. Hold up.

Okay, here they are:

I first jacked the car up off the ground with a hydrolic jack I got from K-Mart for $15. I then removed the wheels, which allowed me to then remove the inner wheel well.




To remove the inner fender, I removed 3 plastic clips and about 8 screws. Three screws were holding the inner fender liner to the metal fender at the edge. The 5 others were below the front lip of the car.




To remove the plastic clips. Take a flat head screwdriver and stick it between the plastic corners and gently push the screwdriver under the circular part. You'll be able to pop the clip out with a little movement.





After you unscrew and unclip everything, you have to push the inner fender to the medial part of the car to make it free. After this, you can just let it ly down on the brake rotor. The white circluar cover is what covers the lighting unit and to remove this, turn it the direction that it says.

Al, you should write that up as an actual How To

You should move it because I have no idea what you're talking about. Also, the pictures will be automatically deleted from Imageshack's servers 1 year from when I hosted it (which will be about April 2005).
