It pretty straight forward of you open the hood and look at the back of the headlamp. You see a metal clip right where the wiring harness plugs into the back of the lamp. Just take a common screw driver and pop the clip out (be careful you don't pop the clip down into oblivion as it does tend to spring out with a bit of force.) The clip is held in place by two star headed screws. You do not need to mess with these, just pop the clip out from under the screw head. I assume it will say something to this effect when you buy the new bulb but be sure not to touch it directly with your skin as the oils in your skin will shorten the bulb's life considerably.

I use to have the same problem, you may need someone with thin hands and large fingers, I went to mechanic, he uses a large curved tweezers, it´s very difficult to do it yourself, I spend several hours trying, but I abort the job and went to mechanic he fix the problem in 10 mins.

Behind the head lamp you'll see a circular cap with some fins on it. Turn it counter clockwise and then it should come out exposing the back of
the bulb. Then you will need to push in and up on an angle to release the metal spring clip that holds the bulb in place. Then you can disconnect the harness to the back of the bulb and then remove the bulb. Do not touch the glass of the bulb when putting in the new one as that will cause the bulb to catastrophically fail

It is posible that the extra boost has blown the ignition fuse. Look under the dash on the left or right hand drivers side and find the fuse box. On the outer cover should be a diagram of the fuses installed. Look for ignition. If you don't have a daigrm then start pulling fuses one at a time and checking the wire in the fuse to see if it has seperated, (Melted), and replace it. There may be more then one fuse that burnt so check them all and replace them back in the same spot. This is why i say one at a time. Some vehicles have an ignition fuse under the hood as well. If you can't find the fuse in the car then look out under the hood. Some of these fuses under the hood will be larger but should have a window to look in and check for damage. Let me say this first before you go fuse hunting. When trying to start does it turn over good and fast. If it is a sluggish turn over then recheck the battery termanals to be sure they are tight and cleaned of all corrosion. You should not be able to twist the cable end with your hand. Let me know how it turns out. I hope I have been of some help, Good Luck, The Raz

SOURCE: need to change fuel pump
Fuel pumps are no always straight forward, they sometimes retain fuel under pressure and have to be discharged in order to be replaced. If your so sure it's gone (not an easy diagnosis) the replacement instructions will be on the replacement pump instructions or an owners manual. DON'T TAKE CHANCES WITH PRESSURISED FUEL ! Good Luck
