Default Any tips for replacing front parking/city lights?

One of my front parking lights is on the way out....only works half the time. I'm talking about the tiny clear bulb at the top of the inboard highbeam housing. I'm planning on swapping in Silverstars or similar, to better match the HID lowbeams. Can anyone give a quick step-by-step on getting access to these bulbs?

There is a long stick that is flat u twist, stick is long and sticks out, u can kinda see where it lays by looking at the bulb and eyeing it. There is a DIY thread somewhere on this site.

Awesome - thanks for the link. Not at all how I figured it would be, but looks easy enough - if I can get my fat finnies around the end of that crazy long tube.....

Lol ya the passenger side is slightly harder but with patience it can be done. When putting them in I left the parking light on so I could guide them into the hole, u might as well do LEDs while ur at it.

Yesterday, when swapping for Philips LED I ordered, the passenger LED fell off ...

Removed air box, bumper cover... searched for an hour, no luck had to make a new order
