Not the headlamp bulb but the smaller one below.......

The daytime running lights, how do you replace those? Nothing in the owners manual that I could find.

Thanks in advance  :028:

Most of us have the LED running light which runs vertically between the headlamps...so I can't help you much.

Haynes manual - remove housing cover, unplug main(H7) bulb and remove bulb, there is a tab you need to push aside(they show using needle nose pliers), and then pull out the park bulb holder. Replace bulb and reverse.
