It's a lot easier if you just take off the front bumper.Mine had been repaired by the previous owner. Came home the other day and noticed it hanging. There was electrical tape holding it together. The metal socket had come apart from the reflector. I replaced it with a new one. Unless you pull it down completely I believe you are going to have difficulty sealing it around enough to get it to hold. There is not a lot of room on top of to work with. If your going to pull it down it maybe better to replace it. IMO. Plus when you try to turn the black plastic base to access the bulb in the future it's likely to pull apart again. There are three screws that hold the black bracket to the car. I had to unscrew the washer reservoir to get at one of the three screws. The highest one up. It was very difficult.
Once you take it off once, you can do it with your eyes closed.I was considering that but I just could not picture having better access to it. I have never had the front bumper off before so I'm sure that would have given me a better perspective.
Wow...very impressive! That was straight forward. Thx for the link.Once you take it off once, you can do it with your eyes closed.
