How do I change out the parking light assembly? I took a quick look at it earlier but really can't tell how to take it out to change them.

The procedure is in your owners manual. Chapter 5. Basically you open the hood and remove the "L" shapped pin that retains the headlight assembly and then you roll the housing forward. Then you find the bulb you want to change and you squeeze the black plastic ring and rotate the socket assembly to remove it. Then unplug the bulb. If you lost the owners manual, they are available on here. I hope this helps.

It's in your owners manual. You have to remove the headlight to get to the parking light.
