change a headlight bulb


remove the plastic cover directly behind where the lights are under the bonnet. then pull out the correct bulb (be careful not to damage any wires in the process). if your unsure exactly what bulb you need just take it down to a parts store and they can get the correct bulb from the make and model.

need to replace headlight bulb BUT being told whole assembly needs replacing at silly cost for a headlight ($1500)


WTF !!!!
Who told you this exactly?
All you need to do is replace the bulb at a cost of a few dollars......Job done!......
Do it yourself, it's quite easy.
If you have the HID bulbs, then they will be more expensive than ordinary filament bulbs but certainly nowhere near $1500.
I'm from the UK so I don't know the prices in the USA.
