      where are you located? It only takes 2 minutes to do. Untwist the igniter t unlock it from the hid bulb, then undo the retaining ring that holds down the hid bulb, next pull out the bulb, put in the new hid bulb where it suppose to sit in place with the mark thats cut out, then get the retaining ring it will say top on it, put that over the hid bulb then turn it to the passenger side to lock the ring in place, then unhook the small harness that go the the igniter, put that on the hid bulb then turn it to the passenger side and last put the harness on the igniter then test it.

      you cant have the harness hooked up when you put the igniter back on. there is a clip that lock in to the bulb, if you have the harness on there 1st it wont lock.

      hope this helps you
