You pinch both sides of the harness, right before the rubber dust cover, and pull off. Then you have to pull the dust cover off... Then push the pin that holds the bulb on and move to the left, that will unlock it. Then, pull the pin back, and the bulb should come right out. The owner's manual has a diagram.
Good luck... (I put Hyper Industries HID look bulbs!)

hmm...must be different then the elantra setup. You twist the cap off and then take off the clamp. pull the bulb out. But go by Decrum...I dont have an accent and I guess its different.

However, whatever you do. DO NOT TOUCH THE LIGHT BULB. Oils from your hand can shorten its life.

I haven't really heard good ratings on those, check out the Krypton Gas filled bulbs called Showoff... they are the best I've seen.

Its good to clean the blubs with rubbing alcohol and a clean cloth before you install them, it removes any dirt and oils that could be on the bulb before packaging.

|Man,i feel dumb. I tried to change the bulbs tonight, and i couldn't get the freaking wire off. The hyundai
manual is sooooo helpful,"remove wire from main bulb assembly." Alot easier said then done, anyways, tommorrow im gonna have another go, and clear the front headlights while im at it. Next stop, paint booth to paint the handles and the ugly black
plastic on the trunk.

Ok, now i really feel dumb, i realzied just how freaking easy it is. What sucks is the bulbs i had from the old accent don't fit, so i guess im gonna have to wait the 2 weeks until i get the |HID setup.

A message to the honda camp, we're coming.
