Probably a quick and straightforward process:
Go to local parts store to get replacement bulb. If it is the type that fits into a holder, continue.........
- Open hood
- Look at back of bad headlight
- Wire will go to Back of light to bulb holder
- Twist holder counter clockwise to remove
- Pull out old bulb
- Insert new bulb
- Reverse rest of process.
if you have H4 headlight bulbs ( with 3 pins) looking at them from the front of the vehicle the pin on the right hand side of the bulb is earth, the center one is low beam & the one on the left hand side of the bulb is high beam, if you are still unsure use a test light to check......hope this helps.......cheers.
I have a 2005 Lexus Rx330 with HID AFS headlight. My passenger side light went out. I thought the bulb burnt out, so I bought a new bulb. After replacing the new bulb, it happened exactly like my old bulb. It light up lightly and then total black out. What's wrong with it? I thought the ballast burnt. I called Lexus dealer and asked for the new ballast/transformer. Surprised me, they don't know what is it. They told me they only know the wiring harness and the socket, but not the ballast ??????? Could you tell me what do I need to replace?
TEST remove both bulbs from the lamps but leave them on their wires switch
on and see if the bulbs are still different brightness if not they the
passenger side lamp housing has damaged mirror is dirty or missalined and needs adjustment. if they are
different brightness then this may be a earthing problem.
open the passenger side door there should be a plastic cover usually a flathead screwdriver will remove it once that is removed there should be 3 or 4 bolt to remove and a power cable remove all and replace. good luck
there is a nut on the left side of the light on drivers side,just the opposite on passenger side. you will need a deep socket. there are 2 10mm bolts on top of the assy. and on the back is a 10mm nut you will have to remove on order to remove the assy.
