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.

How do I change the headlight on a 1998 vw Beetle?


Lift the hood and if equipped remove plastic engine cover. On each headlight you will see plastic retaining latches. releasing these latches will allow the whole headlight assembly to slide out. Its a canister type assembly. You can then access teh bulbs to replace the lights. it reassembles teh same way

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.

No, you just remove the radiator grill and the side marker light and the headlight housing bolts and it comes out. Not a real hard job and is Real straight forward. Good luck and have a good day.

1998 Subaru Legacy Hatch no longer opens


Most of the time these rivits break when you pull them out but sometime you get lucky. They can be bought from subaru at a cheap pruice tag. Just slip a butter knife or something of the sort under the head and pry up. Good Luck. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer.
