I have the same question. They are the driving lights located below the headlights on the outside, they stay on when the ignition is on. I do not see how they can be replaced from behind and how to remove the entire lens is not clear. I have some LED's I want to try out rather than the incandescent.

The led bulb will turn on the "bulb out" warning light in the dash.

So, no idea how to get to the light bulb? I could live with a blown lamp indicator or could even put a resistor in series with the lamp. Any help is appreciated.

Got it done. Small hands reach into the access hole behind the headlight and twist to remove the daylight running light socket. The blue/white LED's look fantastic and no blown bulb indicator comes on. Thanks for your patience and help. I will highly recommend you guys. Sincerely, Scott
