Tip & How-To about Toyota Camry

Extend the life of your head liamps

Today's vehicles come equipped with halogen head lamp bulbs, they are brighter and for the most part a lot easier to replace then the old style bulbs of years past.
When replacing any halogen type bulb please be careful not to allow your fingers to touch the glass on the bulb, your skins oils can shorten the bulb life by half being they develope high intense heat, which explains why they are so bright and excellant for night driving.
Also please use care when installing a light filmn of dilectric grease on the electrical connector plugs, don't get that grease on the bulb either, the dilectric grease keeps the connectors moisture and corrosion free for extended bulb life as well.

How do you replace a low-beam headlight on the 2005 Buick Rainier? I do not even understand how to remove the front grille?


Most vehicles are equipped with Halogen bulbs that are small bulbs that are replaced from under the hood behind the headlight bezel assembly.
They have a twist turn method generally to remove/replace hiowever they cannot have your hand come in contact with the glass bulb as the oils on your skin will in fact reduce the halogen bulbs life as it gets extremely hot burning the oil off the lense shortening the bulbs existence.
Remember to replace the bulb with the proper bulb as you may find two or three different applications of halogen bulbs for the same vehicle, they all have a purpose, they go from bright to brighter to brighter each increase in candle power also increases in price of the bulb, a typical standard priced Halogen is approximately $9.95 and up.
