If your talking about this metal bracket, you just push in on the metal tab that the arrow in that pic is pointing too, then push it away from the screw to unhook it. Hopefully you can figure the rest out.

Use a flat-head screw driver to push it down and to the side if you have to. Just be sure to remove the black electrical connector from the back of the bulb first.

I replaced my H1 with OSRAM's SilverStar. It's a +50% bulb that's completely different than Sylvania's SilverStar. This bulb's not about "the look" but better visibility. It's the best H1 available for our cars in that respect.

Cheers!

sound's like a cheap ripoff of sylvania's product


edit:

wait what the heck? http://www.sylvania.com/auto/silverstar.htm

the title up top says OSRAM Sylvania Automotive Lighting?

is OSRAM like a classification of headlights or something? confused!!!

gerbs,

Osram and Sylvania are part of the same company. Sylvania sells bulbs in North America, Osram in Europe. The Osram bulb is a MUCH superior bulb, having clear glass and being a +50% bulb. The Sylvania SilverStar has a blue coating on the glass the results in a white look but significantly less light output.

Basically if you're replacing lighting to try and fool people into thinking you have HID, the Sylvania SilverStar is the bulb for you. Just don't kid yourself into thinking it actually makes you see better. It's funny how their initial commercial was a bunch of rice boys talking, "bout the look yo!" The new commercial pretends that the whiter light is actually better for driving. All tests I have seen are to the contrary.

If you are replacing your lighting because you actually want to see better (imagine that!?) then the Osram SilverStar or Philips Vision Plus are the best bulbs out there in the 55W H1 category.

There have been many links to Daniel Stern's website as well as AutoExpress' bulb test. Do a search and I'm sure you'll find them. They're worht reading, gives you unbiased information and tests on all types of auto lighting.
