10. Now remove all of the bulbs and wiring. This step may not be necessary, but i did it just in case so as not to melt any wiring or anything. Couldn't hurt. Each of the bulb housings are unseated by turning them 1/4 turn or so. Just pull each bulb out and MAKE SURE NOT TO PUT YOUR GRIMY FINGERS ON THE BULBS! Don't touch them at all! The grease from your fingers can heat up and blow the bulb when they are on.

NOTE: I've done this on a set of STi lights as well, and didn't remove any of the bulbs or ballast and it came out fine.

The plugs for the parking and turn signals can be slid off of the back of the headlight housing with a little tug. The whole wiring harness comes off with the bulb. The main light bulb is removed by unscrewing the cap, disconnecting the ground (glack) and power (red) wires by pulling them off, then pusing down and up on the retainer clip (as noted below). Pull the bulb out and make sure you don't touch it. Set all this aside... it's time to get cookin'.
