Default Access door in wheel well

i was looking in my driver side front wheel well and noticed a little plastic access door that says pull down to open. i gave it a little tug but since it is very cold out I didn't want to force it and break something. Does anyone know what this is access to?

It is to change light bulbs for the headlight and turn signals!
There is a tab in there that unlocks the back of the headlight housing from the truck!
This is looking in, push the white tab up to unlock the back after removing the two screws holding the front of the housing in!

Awesome news! I thought I'd have to rip the front apart to change them! Looks like a bulb upgrade for me in the near future! Are the fogs just as easy to change?

You still have to take the whole headlight assembly out the front

It is best to watch a youtube video on how to do it

One thing that most videos will not show
If you decide to remove the grille, protect the upper bumper valance from scratches
