How Do You Remove The Headlamp Bulb???

Hey guys, I just got a bluevision bulb from Philips to replace the normal bulb in the head lamp.
I was wondering how to change it?

So far, I can take out the plastic cover, and then the plug that goes into the light bulb. THen I am stuck after that, I am not sure how to take out the bulb.
does anyone know?

I HAVE a 1987 300E.

thanks guys

What model vehicle do you have? The details of the bulb removal procedure change with the age of the car as newer models use more varied bulb types than the older ones. Also there are usually detailed instructions in the owner's manual on the subject. Jim

There is a plastic ring that turns about a 1/4 of a turn. Turn that ring and it will come off, you can see the little indentations where it is held on. After that the bulb pulls right out.
