Removing city light bulb from headlights.

My LEDS finally came in from superbrightleds.com, it was pretty quick took about 3 days. I'm planning on swapping out the amber city lights into leds but I came across a problem. On the passenger side headlights, right next to the city light bulb plug, theres this metal/silver thing that's right behind the plug, and when I turn the plug to get the bulb out, it wont turn all the way because the silver/metal thing is blocking it. Is this just me or does anyone else have this problem too? On the driver side headlight, its a piece of cake because theres no silver/metal thing behind the city light bulb plug.

I didn't run into this problem, mine came right out easy, Id have to look at it again to try to figure out what your talking about. I have LED bulbs in there too.

Re: Removing city light bulb from headlights.

can someone tell me something about the led lights, i have normal 198 GREEN lights in my city lights as yall call them, haha, i call them park lights, i love the way the green looks with my actual headlights turned off, but when i turn my headlights on you can see the green real good, if at all, you have be at JUST the right angle, would led greens make it brighter and is that illegal?

Yes green LED bulbs will be a little brighter and you will be able to see them a little better with the headlights on, and Yes this will be illegal........But the green bulbs you have in there now are already illegal So.......Ya. You are not allowed to have any color bulbs in the ft of the car except for amber and white.
Cops always told me this when I used to get pulled over all the time back in the day (like 1996) when I used to have a set of purple fog lights on my Accord. The cops would ask to see my blue light permit. lol (The one you need when you are a volunteer fireman or EMT and want lights on your car/truck) .

Re: Removing city light bulb from headlights.

I tried again yesterday on removing the passenger side city light bulbs, and yet came across the same problem, I twisted it and when it couldn't twist no more, I tried to pull it out, but it doesn't come out. The drivers side bulb comes out with no problem. Anyone stumbled across this before?
