Boot? There's no boot. I replaced mine this past weekend.

- Pull connector off back of bulb. Pull straight back; there's no clasp
- Turn the collet to the left something like 1/4 turn or a little more (it's the zinc & yellow chromate ring)
- Collet pulls straight off
- Pull bulb straight rearward to extract; no turning
- Note the orientation of the cup over the filament--that's how the new one needs to go in (the cup inside the bulb!)
- Don't touch the new bulb with your bare fingers. If you do, wash it with rubbing alcohol

A recent post made it out that you should remove the gauge package. I see no need for that and I think you won't either.

Any Q's feel free to PM me.

That's good info.

I changed mine out also, up grade bulbs, with out taking anything apart. Later when installing a vent in the dash panel, I had it loose and looked at the headlamp module and thought, man now I have some clearance to see things and change the bulbs. If your not familiar with the bulb it might be easer to have the panel loose.

My apologies... I've got to correct my post. My 06 does not have a boot over the headlight connector, but photos shown on other posts clearly show that other models or years do indeed have a boot.

In either case, I hope my instructions don't throw anyone off if they find a boot along the way.
