Not only is it in your owner's manual, but there's a complete How-To with photos in the Exterior Lighting FAQ forum. Go search.

AKA, the retaining clip. I have a hard enough time getting the bulb lined up and getting the retaining clip on while I have the headlights off the car.

jeez, that's gotta be a pain. That retaining clip is a bitch to get off. I've changed my bulbs a few times so I can kind of unhook the retaing clip easier than from my first try. It's hard but do-able.

never had a problem with mine. if you understand how they work they are a breeze. just stop for a few minutes, take a look at it and use your 6th, or maybe even 7th sense and just feel it out. works every time
