Change DRL bulb?

Is it easy? Can I just put my arm under the air box?

I know the DRL can either be the small tiny bulb that's in the highbeam bowl or it is the highbeam bulb itself running at a low wattage. So which one is it first?

Taking out the airbox is easy. Just pop the center duct out, take the 10mm bolts holding the airbox out, loosen up the two clamps from the maf and pull out the intake.

It's the high beam running at low wattage as far as I know.

Take the intake out as I stated and just turn the two tabs and the bulb socket will come out. Pop out the bulb from the socket and re-install.
