you should be able to just pop the hood and look down to find the corresponding bulb socket i.e. lo or high beam, grab and twist counter clockwise. You shouldn't have to move anything but maybe the air filter box which is easy with just simple tools. Not sure with the 3.5 thought. If you have replacement bulbs already just take out the old bulbs and put the new ones in, but don't touch the glass surface cause it will leave oil from your hand and eventually blow the bulb. It really is easy. I don't have any pics though, maybe someone else can chime in here.

nv you are right on! I have a 3.5 and its exactly the same way and on the one side the airbox does need to come out i couldnt squeeze my hand in there and turn the bulb. But the air box take only a minute or two to get out and put in. this is a 10minute job at max..

*&^% i feel so stupid...i was reading all the posts on here about how hard it was and guys getting cuts on their hands and you have to move the air box...etc etc...

F*&K that..! it was the easiest thing to do..and didn't need to move the air box at all..just open the cover and moved the pwr steering resevoir which was so easy, no tools needed....i can probably do it in 2 mins now...lol

Not true! Bulbs for the HID lights are easy to change.

Reviving an old discussion here: the owners manual mentions high voltage for the HID bulbs. What special precautions does one need to take when replacing a stock HID bulb with a new one?

Thanks.
