    I just bought some 55w red ring hid lights. I opened them up just to look around inside. Is there an easy way to replace the bulbs besides removing all the little nuts on the inside? Also, what are good bulbs to use as replacements when they burn out?
    Thanks

    If you are talking the kragen red ring hids just throw it away and buy another when they burn out.

    Yeah. Those are the lights I'm talking about. Im figuring the price of the bulb is close to the price of the whole unit?

    They are built in and easier and cheaper to buy another one.

    Chris-

    I know they sell replacement bulbs specifically for these. I've seen them for sale many times on DR. I wouldn't throw away the entire light if I could replace the $15 bulb.
