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

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
get in behind headlight under hood and look for a central plug or screw for the headlight to remove to get to the bulb you will have to unplug the wiring to pull it out and a spring clip youll have to press in towards the centre of the globe to remove it
IT'S ONLY NECESSARY IF YOUR USING A PRESS TO REMOVE THE HUB AND BEARINGS,YOU MAY ALSO CHECK LOCAL AUTO PARTS STORE TO SEE IF THEY RENT A TOOL CALLED THE HUB SHARK,THIS TOOL IS USED TO REPLACE HUB AND BEARINGS WHILE HOUSING IS STILL ATTACHED TO CAR, ONLY BOLT YOU HAVE TO REMOVE IS THE LONG LATERAL LINK BOLT
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.
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.
