Forgive me it this has been asked 6392 times already, but how do you get those things out? I know you access them from behind, but pulling, twisting and turning doesn't seem to work and I don't want to break anything.
TIA

Re: Removing City Lights--Once More! (gavin5)

Well, I did it. They do just come out, but it's tough. I got the Blue Vision Sidelights free when ordering bulbs from http://www.powerbulbs.com and they work as city lights. Wow, are they bright!
In the process of changing the bulbs, I knocked one of the city light bulbs loose and it fell into the headlight. So, I ended up removing the headlight (with the bumper) and replaced them that way.
If the Blue Vision regular bulbs are like the sidelights, I'm getting those next. I got the Philips Vision Plus this time.

you have to pull them out and its preety tough b/c of the lack of space, i didnt remove the bumper or battery...i used a set of plyers to grip the end of their attachment and yanked them out. the bulbs are simple to change once you get to them, thats the tough part.

did you just yank on the wires w/ the pliers? and it just pops out even though it feels like you'll rip the wires right off, no need for twisting and turning? thanks man

Re: Removing City Lights--Once More! (SurrealGTI)

Hahahah, it's soooo funny hearing you ask this cuz I had the exact same question about a week ago.
. No matter what I did, I could not get them out!!!!!!!!!
Now that I finally got it, it is simple... You just have to keep tuging on them, eventually they will come out and the hard part is over.

Another way to get them out is using a flathead screwdriver. You can just pry them out because they have little ridges on the edge. I used this method and it worked pretty well.
