No tools needed, and the small tube of dielectric grease costs about 5 dollars.

Darn Acadias--you have to remove the front wheel and wheel well liner, and go in through the wheel well to get to the headlights!

Of course in the end I went with LEDs because I still believe the 4114 LL still burn out too quick. It also doesn't make sense to me that the 4114 bulbs have two elements in them when only one is used.
