I think it tells how in the owners handbook{ it does in the Cerato one } if not go to www.kiatechinfo.com , it is free to register go to shop section and look up your model in the list of online manuals.

TAKE YOUR TIME, THINK IT OUT, DO IT RIGHT, DO IT ONCE!! original quote by me as far as I know. :rolleyes:

remove the plastic battery cover to access the bulb housing. When you find the housing, you have to turn the back cap to remove the cover. Holding the bulb in is a metal spring-loaded clip (take note of how this is situated). Release the clip by pressing it and moving it slightly downward; this will release the actual bulb and it's connector. CAREFUL TO NOT TOUCH THE BULB (oils from your hands will damage it), but remember which way it came out - simply remove the old bulb and replace with a new one, then replace all components in reverse. The passenger's side bulb the same minus the battery cover.

Yes fairly easy. The single sided spring clip is much like a old style fog light was with its metal base H3 bulbs. Not the plastic base 881 style like now is common. But both are keyed to go in only one way thou. It is better to take off connector first thou before the spring clip. Far easier/safer to hold the bulb by the electrical connector tabs pulling it out and putting it back then. Then ever trying to hold NEW bulb with out by accident touching glass and putting on connector out side head light unit. Once in unit it is easy to pop back on connector once spring clip is back on and bulb is in houseing.
