it is in the oval hole on the side of the engine bay, i think you know which one i am talkin about. And then you shove a flat head screw driver in this little like groove "cup" almost, and push down and foward at the same time (so your effectivly pushing the light out the front of the car). I dont know if this gives you any help, but i tried. It really isnt that hard

there is a hole on the frame behind the light. if you look into it you should see a grey plastic tunnel looking item surrounding a screw. loosen this screw and then grab the side of the light with your fingernail or something to work it out of the car. unhook the bulb harness and you are set to go

Shine some light down the hole with a flashlight to find the silver tab. It takes a while to find it if you just stick a screwdriver down and poke around blindly.

it's just like everyone is saying, there's that oval hole there on the side of the engine bay. just loosen the screw (not all the way off) and pull out the light. if you take the screw all the way out it's not really bad BUT it's a pain in the a$$ to put back in. good luck!:thumbup:
