mitranom said:Today I installed my amber drls and first off I figure if you take all 6 bolts of the top off and then placing your hand down in front of the rad you can pop off the lower grille and it will give you access to both headlights. It worked for me and it only took me 30 minutes in total, it could of been less but I was being extra careful in the cold weather trying to pop off the front grille. Hope this helps!
My Avaz71 said:Okay I'm new to the club so I'm sure which bulbs everyone is talking out here and I want to this so alittle background info would be helpful. what exactly is the DRL bulb and why Amber and whats the best way to do this?
BADalanche said:They must have changed for the 2011. All I needed to do was loosen the 3 screws on each light, and the whole light assembly slides out on a pivot about 2 inches. Just pull up the airbox to get to the passenger side (its tight, so smaller hands will help). The driver side has a clear path behind the bulb to reach in and twist (also tight). I removed my POS DDM HID kit last night, and had the stocks back in about 10 minutes. Still not as easy as the 04 WBH, but not near as bad as I thought it would be...BTW, this is for low beams, I haven't tried anything else...

small regular screw driver - to help get the pop pins out
7mm and 10mm sockets 1/4" drive is fine
1/4" drive 6" extension
1/4" drive ratchet or I used my cordless drill with the extension in the chuck
10mm combo wrench
50 - 70 minutes15-20 minutes
High Beam: 9005LL
Low Beam: H11
Turn Signal: 3457NAK
Please note that these images are of the driver’s side. Also, turning the wheel all the way to the right for the driver’s side and left for the passenger’s side helps give you more room to work.
Take out all 6 bolts along the top of the grille.
Take out the 2 - 7mm screws, 3 push pins, and 2 pop in pins in the wheel well
Pull the wheel well lining towards the tire and
removeloosen the 2 10mm bolts that go up into the fender. When you remove them the bumper mounting bracket will come out. Also note that this image shows the location of the 3rd headlight bolt as well as a bumper mounting bracket.Do not remove this bracket just pry on the bumper it will release
Remove the 3 10mm bolts holding the headlight in. 2 are on top and the third is behind the bumper as shown in the last image. I found that I was able to pull down on the bumper and use the extension with a swivel to take the 3rd bolt out.
Pull the entire headlight forward. You will notice 2 guide pins that go into the fender and a part that snaps in on the inside of the headlight. Pull it forward just enough to clear those pins and unsnap the inside.
Pull the inner corner of the headlight out while pushing down on the bumper. Take care of the snaps along the edge of the headlight as they get caught on the bumper and can scratch it. TAKE YOUR TIME AND LOOK AT WHAT YOU ARE DOING, this is the hardest part. As you get the inner side of the headlight out rotate the headlight leaving the outside stationary. The reason for this is the bracket that was held by the 3rd headlight bolt hangs down there. You have to get the inside of the headlight out then you can move the outside in and clear the top of the headlight and the fender.
Once you have the headlight out, disconnect the wiring harness and remove the headlight.
Change what ever it was you needed to change and put them AMBERS in the DRL's!!
Replace the headlight the same way you took it out. It seems to go in much easier then it came out. Don’t forget to reconnect the wiring harness!
Repeat steps 2-9 for the other side.
Put everything back together in reverse order. I suggest testing the lights after you put the 3 10mm headlight bolts back in. (the same ones you took out in step 4)
