I have a 2005 TL, the drivers side headlight works sometimes. Took it to Acura dealer they say it is the inverter, igniter, and possibly the bulb, with a total cost of 1,000 to repair. Can anyone give me...


TL take a D2S type HID bulb available online. If the ballast unit is bad you can find them on ebay a lot cheaper. It's located on the bottom of the headlight. I've even seen full headlight units with the bulb and ballast unit included for a couple hundred on ebay. That would be the easier way to go if you aren't handy with car work. To replace the bulb you need to pull the whole headlight out because Acura uses a security type bolt to secure the back cup onto the headlight. Once the headlight is off the car it's easy to remove the security bolt though with needle nose plyers

How to deenergize lowbeam headbeam headlight for replacement???


You really don't have to de energize the bulb. Just make sure the lights are in the off position. It uses a D2R 35W HID Capsule bulb part number D2R in Osram/Sylvania. Just remember not to touch the glass on the new bulb while installing it.
