How do you replace headlight on lexus ls430?

How difficult is it to replace the headlamp on the 2002  LS 430?   The bulb is $120 aftermarket, or $430 from Lexus.  I wouldn't want to get too deep in the problem and find I've caused more problems just before the Holiday drive.
Does the entire metal casing come off to replace the bulb?
Thanks,
jon@jfstudio.com

This is one of the easiest fixes you can do on your lexus...all thats needed is just unscrew the canisters' holding the lightbulbs, they look like dome fixtures encasing the HID lights...once you unscrew those, the bulbs are held in place by simple snap components that actually hold the lights in place...pull the old lamps out...unplug them, and then reverse this procedure....it took me all of 15 minutes, and a savings of $1000 to do this...

    I just did this replacement. I couldn't see the clip very well, so I took a picture with my iPhone. There is a left and right side to the clip. Push the left in and to the left. Push the right in and to the right. The spring clip will then be released, and the bulb should come right out. Reverse to reclip the new bulb. Take before and after pictures with your phone. It is well worth it!

How do I adjust headlights on 2005 lexus LS430


The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.
