unplug the bulb, pull off the rubber boot, release the spring latch, remove bulb and replace with new one

Do the Ultras last longer than the original Silverstars? I could only get about a year out of those. The lighting was awesome, but at $40 a pair, I can't afford to be buying those every year.

^^^^^x2 really simple. The headlight on my 07 has a brown connector. Squeeze the sides and pull straight back. No need to twist or anything. Then gently off the black rubber boot. May be a little sticky cause sometimes theres a little "lube" that gets on there. Once thats off, theres a little metal spring clip. On mine, you push the side that is towards the engine compartment(meaning not facing out to the fenders) in and then up to release. Simply pull out the bulb. Slide the new ones in place theres notches on there as references, and reverse the process. Then move over and repeat on the other side. Just dont touch the bulb with your bear hands and get oil on em. Not really gonna hurt these bulbs but just good practice not to touch em. Have fun.
