The bulbs should just turn and come out of he headlights. I used to release the socket from the bulb first, then turn and pull the bulb out of the headlight. I dont know why the bulbs would not just come out? :confused:

it should twist counter clockwise, if i remember correctly. first, unplug the socket, this might take awhile. after that, twist it as hard as you can and it should come out.

ive heard alot of people wasting money on sylvania bulbs... people complained the bulbs blew out anywhere from 1 to 6 or 7 months after installing them

I've heard this, too. But, I decided to buy a pair of Silver Star Ultras anyway. They are said to last 30% longer than the previous model, so I thought it was worth a try. I have had them for about 9 months now and haven't had a problem.

I should also mention that they really do light the road much better than the OEM bulbs I had (certainly no retro, though). I live in a suburban area with dark streets and a lot of deer, so the light really helps. Eventually I would like to go retro, but I cannot afford the time or money right now.

have you tried the 9005 to 9006 conversion yet? meaning, having a high beam bulb inside the low beam housing? that's what i'm using right now and it helps probably about 20%-30% better than low beam. it's not hard at all. all you need to do is dremel the center piece of your socket and that's it. the fitment is perfect.
