I ended up having to take off 4 pop clips to get my hand into the engine bay. I took off the pop clip that is to the left of the drivers side wheel which is the main pop clip that holds the under cover (that keeps water out of the engine bay). Then 3 clips that are under the cover (between wheel and front of car underneath). I got my hand under there and found the bulb but also found that it was much easier to twist the bulb back into place. Twisted the socket back into place and was done.

I know my descriptions weren't the best but if you have any questions let me know and I'll help you out. The project sucked, mostly because I dropped the bulb and had to search for it but the bulbs I put in look amazing. I'm really happy with the outcome. The stock yellow looking bulbs look crappy with hids. Best of luck!
What size bulb did you use?

I'm definitely gonna try it, because I too have HIDs, and it looks terrible with the stock yellow bulb.
