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..

install HID headlights in a 2006 300c SRT8

I was told as I was getting my oil changed that only a dealership can replace the HID lights.........does anyone know if this is true?

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.

Only precaution I can tell you when removing any type of bulb is to make sure that they weren't turned on prior to removing them unless you want to burn your fingers since they can get pretty hot.

Replacing the bulb in my 2005 300C. Haven't done it yet but my mechanic said to disconnect the battery before replacing the bulb. He stated that there's a 2000v charge and it only takes 1000v to kill you(better safe than sorry). Also wear latex gloves and try not to touch the bulb as oils from fingers damage the lens. Going to try this weekend good luck
