I just got PIAA parking lights. I couldn't remove the parking lights at first. Took off my front bumper and had both out in 5 mins. Its a lot easier to access them. If you have small hands you might not have to remove it.
take put the low beams and stick your hand below and it should be diagonally away from the low beams towards the outer part of your car.
if its hard to reach your hand down there (especially for the passenger side ones since there's a washer fluid thingie) take a plier and twist them off (it'll be a lot easier that way anyway)
I hope you didn't get blue. I wish I could've gotten white ones like someone else here, since I forget that I'm driving with my parking lights on half the time, and I get worried that I'd get pulled over for some dumb blue LEDs
I do not have small hands and I was able to get the parking lights out just fine. It's a little tricky reaching them, but the car is designed so that you can change the parking light bulbs without removing anything. I also don't know why you guys are using pliers to remove a bulb.
What's the problem with blue? You're not really supposed to drive around with just parking lights on anyway ("parking" lights), and the blue isn't very noticeable with the headlights on.
I couldn't get the leverage to twist the parking lights off. I took the bumper off because I installed new bulbs in my fogs too. I have blue parking lights but I only use it when I'm parked lol. Can barely tell they're blue with my lows on. I was thinking about getting white parking lights but what's the point. I like the hint of blue you see when you look at the lights with the lows on. white you wouldn't be able to tell any difference.
yeah I know they're "parking" lights, but I often drive with them on (don't ask why, cuz I really don't know)
it took me like 20 minutes to get the driver's side parking light out with my hands, and it was too hard to reach the passenger side and even after putting my hands on the bulb, I couldn't twist it off, so I used a plier instead. Sorry, but my hands aren't manly and strong like yours Marty.
^^^ Getting the bulb out sucks a fat one, but I wouldn't feel comfortable using pliers. Actually, I'm not sure I could even get pliers down there and still be able to manuever my fat hands enough to turn them.
