Default Dear GM Engineers

You wonder why people buyimport cars instead of yours? How about because it's easier to change a damn freakin' light bulb on an import then it is on a H3.

Why in the F would you design the frame so that you have to spend 20 minutes taking off a damn wheel well cover just to take 30 seconds to change a light bulb, then hope you can actually get the thing aligned right and take another 10 minutes to get them back in, all because your turn signal went out? Then, you make the turn signals driving lights, but don't use long life bulbs? Real nice.

So, I just spent about an HOUR to research how to do it, figure out where all the damn plastic pop nails are, and spend 30 seconds replacing it and the driving light. Or, I can just take off the front grill, take the light assembly off and do it that way....................

Why on Earth would you do something so stupid? PLEASE, I'd REALLY like to know [:@] Nice try at making me spend $85 to take it to the dealer to get a 99 cent bulb replaced.


morons.....

Think thats bad? Try changing the headlight bulb on a 2003 C320, Mercedes doesnt have a plug in type bulb it has to be secure with some stupid metal clip that is impossible to get off let alone back on, I spent 4 hours changing mine when I had that car.

They are having coffee at the Tech Center right now smiling. They know about you Mike, they knew you would have to change that bulb and designed the whole H3 around making things difficult for YOU just for the sake ofpissinYOU off. [:@]

Did it work?

I think he means the front turn signal by the headlight. Because if he is taking off the front grill to get to the side marker light than he's going about it all the wrong way.
