    Default Installing new HID's.....Headlight housing issue

    I received my new HID's from DDM, but as I'm looking at this & trying to install the first bulb, I can't reach my hand down in there with enough room to turn the bulb. Any tips or hints on doing this or should I just remove the housing? Factory bulb is no big deal to put in or out, but these HID's are straight and give very little to grab & turn with the given room. I dare say if you're older than 2, you're going to have hands too big to install these in such a tight area.

    Pics or hints\tips are appreciated.

    I believe most people just remove the housings to install the bulbs.
