Installing LED bulbs on gen2 sport

Hi y'all. I recently decided to install new led headlights bulbs on my 2018 compass sport and found some that were the perfect size. Last night i tried installing them and was able to put the driver side one. Now I'm having issues with the passenger side there's just so much stuff on the way. My friend and I were able to put the light in but it is really difficult to turn it and lock it in place. Any tips and tricks would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Yep the old my hand canít fit in the space provided, been there done that.. lol
Youíre gonna have to take the 4-5 screws holding the inner wheel cover and go thru the bottom itís still a bit hard but better than doing it from the top, also that lock holding the bulb in place has to be taken out when itís still in the headlight because the wires are short and you wonít be able to pull it out much. Also helps if you have someone with tiny/skinny hands.. hope this helps

Thatís because they want you to go to dealers for simple things like that, lol.
