Default Changing front parking light bulbs

There was a question some times ago about taking head lamp unit out in order to change bulbs, and it was somewhat of a mistery why it wouldn't budge when the top screw is loosened...

Well, sorry if this is repetition on the subject, just wanna let you know it's quite easy to do the job.

I had the same problem with the lamp that won't giveaway, so I took a closer look and found a metal pin which holds it in position. Just remove piece of plastic cover between lights ( it's held in place by several plastic screws) so you can pull the pin out and then take the lamp unit out with just a little wiggling, no problem...

Well you are supposed to remove the lamp assembly to replace the bulbs. But I replaced the main bulbs and the parking bulbs of my 08 sportage without removing them. Its a bit tedious but with a bit of patience and dexterity u can do it. I removed the air hose to access the left side.

The turn bulbs ofcourse are a different story entirely!
