Swapping Standard HID bulbs

Anyone got any tips on swapping the hids. Tried last night as one has gone. Got it all apart but struggling too get back together. Is it a battery out job or can i remove the headlights?

What's the issue, is the lock ring completely off the vehicle?

There are plenty of threads on changing bulbs e.g. https://www.civinfo.com/forum/how-gu...ion-light.html

The bumper/light housing only needs to come out to replace the ballast.

Nope, the lock ring only needs to be loosened.

Get the lock ring bolted back up/slightly loose and then carefully insert the new bulb.

It can be fiddly the first time you attempt this, good luck.
