If you have the manual to your car it shows you how to diy there, and for the bulbs sizes the low beam are 9006 and the fog lights are also 9006. i will se if i can find a diagram, unless mistamatrix post one before i do.lol

Are you simply trying to replace the bulb or change the type of bulb? I'm a little confused here.

Changing the bulb is as simple as putting your hand behind the buld, twisting it and popping it out. Disconnect it and reverse the steps to put in a new bulb.

Otherwise, clarify what your looking to do, and I can help out some more.

I mean i did an HID converstion kit to my bulbs, but all i did was plug it in directly to the factory wiring, no modifications at all. it was super easy, took all of maybe 60 seconds.

hey everybody! sorry took so long to respond but my isp was down. all I'm trying to do is sway my oem bulbs to some hyper yellow ones. I did this to my Xb and it was easy to see how it was to be done but with my matrix the battery seems to be in the way. I guess I'm just gonna have to try..

It really easy just grab the light bulb socket and turn it i think its counter-clock wise if not turn it the other way, and just pull out. all guys are good at pulling out.:lol: anyways remove the bulbs put the hyper yellow ones in and put the socket back the same way you did when taking it out. No need to remove the battery or anything as that goes, just stick you hand down there and twist.
