Nope remove the blinker it will comes right out. Shake it some and you'll be fine.

If you take off the back cover you might be able to suck it out with a vacuum by the low beam light, You might have to take the D1S bulb out so you can have some space, good luck with that man, sorry to hear that.

i have attempted to remove the styrofoam piece and no luck...high beam bulb is enclosed..so nothing cant come in or out..lol

the only way would be to remove the front plastic clear housing...
