You have to remove the clips that secure the plastic inner fender to the outer (metal) fender. It's a real bugger to get in there. You can just remove the front clips and pull back the inner fender just enough to get your hand in there. When installing the new bulb don't touch the glass part at all with your hands or fingers. If it's the driver's side turn the wheels all the way to the right, if the passenger's side, turn the wheels all the way to the left. That will be helpful as well. HTH. -Jim
