Headlight Bulb Replacement General Procedure

Q: How do you replace a headlight bulb?

A: Your owner’s manual should describe the specific procedure for your vehicle. The following is a general procedure. Open the hood and look behind the headlight assembly. You should only have to turn a retainer clip that holds the bulb in place. After the retainer clip is removed, carefully pull on the bulb. It may seem a little snug…it has a rubber O-ring gasket that keeps it tight. Once the bulb is removed, lift up on the clips that hold the wiring harness to the bulb. Remove and replace the bulb. Do not touch the glass part of the new bulb…it will shorten the life. Reverse procedure to reinstall.
