I bought a set of Raxiom smoked projectors and was trying to replace the crappy bulbs with an HID kit I got from DDM. How the hell do you get the high beam bulb out??? I have small hands but still don't have any room to get the bulb out. You have to remove a screw and then the retention pin thingy and supposedly the bulb and housing comes out, but saying and doing it is completely different. Anyone had these headlights and changed the bulbs to either HIDs or just upgraded the bulb?

I did an HID install on a 2006 GT with raxiom halo projectors. I had to remove the front bumper and then the housings to get the bulbs out. Not a difficult job but not the quickest either. Your car may be a similar situation.

Raxiom also states that HID kits cannot be used on the projector housings but they really do fit.

once you loosen the retaining clip, it should pop out. might take a bit of a jiggle.

I let a shop do it. They look pretty good. Only thing I'm not too wild about is they stick out more than the stock ones.

Well I had HIDs put in as well so why not let them do it.

bullitt babe303,

Good to see you go taken care of. I know getting the high beam bulbs out can be kind of tricky/frustrating!

I'm looking forward to seeing pics with the HID's installed as well!
