    My 2008 roadster passenger side parking light that is within the headlight assembly is out and I don't know how to access the bulb. As you'll see in the pictures, I'm talking about the tiny light that is just above the high beam light. I wouldn't really care that it's out except I keep getting screen warnings telling me to check my right low beam. My low beam is fine, but the little parking light is out.

    I pulled off the headlight assembly access panel and I'm pretty sure the light in question is the one that the "plug" (seen in the pictures) is attached to. However, when I disconnected the plug, I still can't seem to access the bulb itself. I didn't want to force it. Anyone know how to access it?

    Secondly, if you know how to access it, anyone know what replacement bulb I should order?

    Thanks!

    You need to remove the round rubber cover behind the parking light. It takes a #168 bulb.

    Thanks! Based on where the rubber covers were compared to where the parking light is, I didn't think it was accessible that way. Good to know that's how it works.
