The HID bulbs are different than regular, but im assuming you already know that. First take off the rubber boot around the bulb--just pry it off with your fingers, then unplug the red plug going to the bulb, unscrew the big black cap surrounding the bulb, and just pull out the bulb. Make sure you don't touch the bulbs with your fingers. Hope this helps somewhat. Good luck.
