i know this question might sound really dumb, but i took my headlight bulbs out (the hid bulb (h7) highbeam bulb, signal bulb) to take my headlights out for some clear corner mod.. now im done and im about to put my lamps back in its place but i dont know how the bulb clip (the metal string spring piece that holds the bulbs down) goes back on... i tried the search button but couldnt find anything... does anyone have a diagram/pic of what it looks like with the clips already in so i can just follow the pic and put it back on? thanks

Take that YouTube with a grain of salt. Several handfuls of salt. I've replaced KC's headlight bulbs several times and never had to remove the headlamp assemblies. Nor have I had to loosten any screws.

Did you change your headlights out to HID? Page 6-32 of the 06 manual shows exactly this way to change the bulbs. Looks like a real PITA.

^i got my hid's professionaly installed before (For free from a friend who does hid lighting) so i didnt really have a clue how to put the bulb back on after pulling it. but that youtube video helped alot, its all in now, i just lost a small screw so i just found a random screw thats slightly big and just put it in but it still holds on pretty good so it should be fine.. anyways my headlights are clear no (no more amber yayy) and i painted the inner housing black, ill post up some pics soon, the car and the headlights are just filthy right now, ill clean er up and post some pics soon

No. The article by Daniel Stern explained why HIDs should never be installed in a car thatand another forum explained the correct way to install HIDs; you need the headlamp assembly from a car that was designed for HIDs. Then you have your Sonata altered so they fit. Some body shop techs do this as a side line, and from the posts on the forum, to do this is VERY expensive.

Rather than go thru all that expense and trouble I fitted KC with Narva/Osram bulbs; they give a better view of the road and the first set lasted almost 2 years.
