    Hiya,
    The bulb for the rings is not located in the main headlight housing, but at the bottom of the bumper - the rings are just light pipes through which the light 'flows'.
    I changed the bulbs a while back on my car, as i didn't like the factory fit 'dayglow orange', and changed for a more cool white, and i simply replaced the bulb for an LED one which was way below the main headlight housing.
    The replacement is a DIY job, but both wheels will have to come off (if replacing both), as well as the inner wheel lining.
    There are various write ups for this procedure, have the correct tools available (including torx screw), remember the sequence of screw removal, and most of all, patience!

    Hope this is of some help.
