Headlight Replacement help needed

I purchased a set of Sylvania Silverstar high performance headlamps for my new 08 Expedition. The manual has us removing 2 bolts and a small tab to open the compartment. I cannot get the housing to slide out to access the bulbs. There must be a trick to get to these bulbs.

By the way, I put these bulbs in my Excursion and they gave me about a 35% boost in light power. Great for seeing the deer on my way up to the cottage in Northern Michigan! They cost about $50 pair and worth it. Street legal.

Thanks for any help!

08 Tri color white, limited, with everything! Love it!

I have been looking for the 9008 everywhere but no dice. I guess I should start looking again. Thanks for the kick in the tail!!

The Silverstars have shorter life, so get used to taking the headlamps out regularly.

I tried both the 9008 and h13...but no luck. I have no idea if Cali has put some heat on retailers but no one I talk to has seen them except online...I'll just wait.

9008/H-13 had been available since the last F-150 update four years ago. Maybe you are looking in the wrong stores?

I purchased my lights right off of the Sylvania website.

That seems rather short-sighted of Sylvania to constrain its market that way.
