ok , its a done deal. not as bad as I thought! A few tips for the next guy. First I was right about the cd repair disc. It says to take out and replace bulb, Ya no shit. But the picture was helpful. 1st step is to push the wire clip down , releasing the bowl that covers the bulbs.Then by much cursing and twisting remove said bowl. A small screw can almost be seen to the left of the bulb with a 3/8 x1/2 inch tin block under it.At first this looks like a phillips screw, its not, nor is it the small allen wrench in the tool kit. It is a t-20 Torx. ( note to self, buy a t-20 L wrench and put in tool kit for on the road repairs.) Then when you drop screw and tin thingy a spring clip that holds the bulb in gives loose and bulb will fall. New bulb goes with knotch up. Practice putting in old bulb a few times before trying new bulb. this is all done by the Braille method as you cannot see a dam thing. One hand under fairing another on top. Reassemble, while swearing and twisting bowl thingy, snap spring in place and go ride.Do not touch bulb itself as oil from your fingers can shorten its life.And all this applies only to the low beam that can seen at all, as the high beam is out of sight and touch so far that Helen Keller could not find it.
