    I am feeling kinda retarded today and I realized that I had a headlight out. So down to the autozone to pick up new ones and realize I am out both corners, a license plate light.

    How do they come out? Im guessing push and twist or something.

    I'm a little confused... you have the following lights out:

    1. Headlight
    2. License Plate Light
    3. Corner Lights (integrated in the heads)

    Is that right?

    I believe most of the lights twist & pull to get out other than the headlight which has the spring thingamajober holding it down. If you have that many out, did you check fuses?

    as I said Im feeling a little retarded today. So lets ignore the headlights and the license plate. I replaced those already. The marker lights on the outside corner of the headlight I cannot seem to pop out. thats what Im aksing.


    Also yeah I checked the fuses I just drive with the lights on all the time. its a habit I got into when I started driving

    ahh gotcha... lol

    The corners twist and pull out (I'm 85% sure)... don't know which way but I remember doing it when I swapped headlights awhile ago...

    I remember those when I did the BHLM. They were pretty tight and the "twist" part on the plug is rather small and hard to turn.

    hey loosen by turning them, once they're loose then just pull the wire/plug out. Just pull on bulb it will come out
