    Hello to everybody...
    Nice to meet all sifus here...

    May I know any way to change HID low beam bulb without taking out the bumper?
    All accesories shop in Ayer Keroh melaka said that they need to take out the bumper to replace the bulb.
    The bulb seems hold by 4 screws rite?

    And how to differentiate the temperature (4000k,8000k and etc) for the bulb...
    I only know the type which is HB4, 12V 51W...

    Hopefully all taikos and sifus can help me...

    I am driving Altezza Qualitat 6MT and in Malacca right now...

    if chg bulb alone i dun think need to take out bumper la, unless u mean chg the ballast.
    maybe u need to loosen the stock air box to access the bulb (if u using stock air box)

    i already loosen the stock air box. but still very hard to remove the bulb cover to access the bulb.

    it seems removing bumper is the easiest way to access the bulb:confused:

    have anyone change the HID bulb without facing this problem?
    and any reminder before and after removing bumper to access the bulb?

    Hmm, i did not remove the bumper in order to change the HB4 bulb, just reach for it and twist it out.

    yea, in order to take out the HB4 bulbs, just twist it anti clock wise... then the bulb can come out dy...no need take out bumper... HB4 is the easiest bulb to take out and fit it... i always smile when my customers car is using HB4, like Lancer and Evo 7(fog lamp)
