    Default Factory Xenon Bulbs

    As above has anyone changed the standard HID bulbs on the vectra. Ordered 2 6000k D2S from hids direct and when I went to change them the standard ones are D1S . So did a search about it and found out that you should be able to remove the D1S bulbs from the metal bit at the bottom of the bulbs and then fit the D2S in its place. Took the headlights off the car and removed the standard bulbs but cant figure out how to remove them from the metal base. Has anyone done this before

    Standard D1S bulb


    Replacement D2S bulb



    Actually looks like a house bulb type fitting ie push in and turn to locate pins into holder.
    Any help appreciated
