    If all your OEM wiring fit in the Ebay headlight assembly, the bulb is the same. Don't go to the dealer for a bulb, go to any auto parts store. Bring the bulb in with you and match it up or someone there can help you.

    wat?
    for the bulf from the connector, just pull straight out. i'd recommend wearing gloves in case you squeeze too hard and bust it. make sure when you put the bulb back in that you feel it click into place and doesnt fall out.

    (sorry i cant see the pic as it's blocked at work)

    AFTER you remove the whole assembly, turn the plastic piece and the bulb and plastic piece will come out together. then hold the plastic in one hand, and the glass bulb in the other and GENTLY pull untill they come apart. hten take that bulb to your local auto parts store and they will get you a replacement for less than $2

    There's usually a tab holding the bulb in. You can use a flathead screw driver to GENTLY lift up on the tab and pull the bulb out. If you lift too hard you'll break the tab so be careful (you can still plug in the new bulb if you do manage to break the tab, I broke one of mine and haven't had any issues yet:eek:)
