The bulb can be simply pulled out quite easily. If you change to LED city lamps, as I have, you will need a W5W socket to trick the computer into thinking that the regular incadescent bulb is still present. There is no way to reset the computer to deactivate the bulb-out warning system.

So if I change the bulb into the regular 194 white/xenon bulb (not LED) does the bulb-out warning system will be also on? do i have to find a specific 194 bulb for my car? because i don't want the warning to be active.. it's anoying [:D]
Thanks in advance drew..

As long as it's a regular incadescent bulb, you won't have any problems. However, you'll have a tough time finding an incadescent bulb which is anywhere close to the same colour as the Bi-Xenons. They all end up being extremely greenish/bluish in my experience.

Great to hear! Can you take a picture? I would be very interested in seeing what you did with it [:D]
