I found some info on the 04's which have a different design. On the 07 headlight the low beam is right in front of the battery . Do I need to pull the battery out to replace the bulb ? Any 07 specific instructions / diagrams ? If not tell me how and I'll do a how to w pics.

Whenever I do a job that requires moving the battery I first connect my jump start battery to the battery cables in order to preserve the settings in the computer, radio, and trip odometer.

Did it last night, some of you must have small girlish fingers :raspberry: Its very tight in there. What worked for me: undo the battery clamp in the front to create some working room. Once that's done then you can move around in there.

Then, I put both bulbs in upside down. Only noticed when I was looking through the lens itself and they were slightly angled downwards. Thankfully I checked before putting it all back together.

I removed the battery, moved the washer fluid bottle to the side, and removed the air intake peace before the fender intake silencer. the hardest part was getting the factory bulbs off of the connections to the wires.
