Question about Kia Optima
It may be necessary to remove the windshield washer fluid plastic reservoir if it blocks access to one of the bulbs.
Look for a large black cap directly behind the headlight you want to remove. Turn it 1/4 turn counterclockwise and remove the cap.
Inside, you'll find a black connector with two wires coming out of it. Pull straight out on the connector to remove it from the bulb.
To remove the bulb, look for a springy wire clip that goes across the back of the bulb. Push the end in and move it to one side to unclip it. Remove the bulb.
Reverse this procedure to install the new bulb. There's a notch in the flange that will only allow the bulb to go one way.
Caution: Do not touch the glass portion of the new bulb - dirt or oil (even if your hands are clean!) could cause the bulb to fail prematurely.
Daytime running light is the other bulb I believe your asking about. It will have a similar setup as the headlamps do, above.
