How do I remove headlight cover in Subaru 1998 brighton wagon?

I can't figure out how to remove the plastic headlight cover from my 1998 Subaru Brighton station wagon so that
I can replace a burned out headlight bulb. Are there screws somewhere
that I'm missing, or clips? Just can't seem to figure it out.

Hi ' this sounds a bit daft but it works ' put the light unit in the oven on a low heat for about 45 mins ' this should be enough to soften the seal and allow the light to be opened ' you need to re-seal again after bulb replacement

THE HEADLIGHTS ARE A SEALED ASSEMBLY. YOU WILL NEED TO REMOVE THE COMPLETE HEADLAMP TO ACCESS THE BULBS.

Cleaning foggy, oxidized headlight covers on my 2000 Subaru Outback with household items?nck AWD, 4 cylinder wagon...with?


Rubbing compound will buff off the oxidation that effects (clouds) the outside surface of plastics. Some waxes have a little abrasive that will help do this. Toothpaste will also work mixed with wax. Use some muscle and buff til it is dry to restore the plastic gloss. Shops use an electric or pneumatic buffer with a wool or foam pad and extra fine rubbing compound.

Hi i recently purchased a 2004 subaru legacy station wagon. There is a weird smell coming out of t he front hood. it steams out and there is no leakage anywhere. The smells is like burning food.


Could be a water pump leaking,and
then the hot engine burns off the coolant
which you smell,thus you see no leak
Check the radiator and canister bottle

1997 subaru gtb wagon, i need to convert japanese into english on my interior fuse cover to see what fuses are what


English language manual for my 1998 Legacy wagon carries the heading "Fuses and circuits" on pp.11-6 to 11-9. With three subheadings as follows:
*Fuse panel located under the dashboard
*Fuse panel behind the instrument panel lower cover
*Fuse panel located in engine compartment

Each includes fuse panel number, fuse rating, and circuit.

I suggest you obtain a manual for your model.
Or, If I have a clear photo or copy of the Japanese language specs I can translate into English.
Or, I can provide the four pages from my English manual if you figure the fuse specs are the same for your model.

Can't get plastic cover off headlight


As far as I know (based on my 1996 model) you don't remove the cover. The lamp comes out with its socket from behind, under the hood. Twist the socket to release it from the housing, pull it out, replace the lamp and put it back. It's just a bit of a pain to get at. You might try calling your local Saturn dealer's service department to check for sure if your model has changed a lot from my '96.

(I liked my car. But the timing chain slipped and trashed the engine. Make sure to keep checking your oil!)
