Removing low beam bulb on 05 subaruoutback


Whether they become damaged in an accident or simply burn out over time, your Subaru Outback's headlights may eventually need to be replaced. Fortunately, once you've purchased the right replacement bulb for your model year, performing the repair yourself is relatively easy. These instructions only apply to Outback models made after 2000.

  1. Undo the clips on the air intake ducts using a screwdriver and remove the duct from the engine compartment (driver's side bulb removal only.)

  2. 2

    Loosen the secured clip on the washer tank with a screwdriver and slide the tank horizontally to allow easier access to the headlight assembly (passenger's side bulb removal only.)

  3. 3

    Turn the bulb cover counterclockwise and remove it from the assembly.

  4. 4

    Disconnect the headlight electrical connector and undo the assembly retaining spring.

  5. 5

    Pull the old bulb directly out of the socket and replace it with the new one. Press the retaining spring back into place and reattach the electrical connector.

  6. 6

    Replace the bulb cover, and then turn on the engine. Test the new headlight to make sure it works before replacing the air intake duct or the washer tank and closing the hood.

    Replacing the High-Beam Bulbs

  3. 3

  4. 4

    Turn the headlight bulb counterclockwise and pull it out of the socket.

  5. 5

    Reinstall the new bulb, replace the retaining spring and reconnect the electrical connector.

  6. 6

    Test the new headlight to make sure it works before replacing the air intake duct or the washer tank and closing the hood.

How do you remove the headlight bulb


  • Take the keys out of the ignition and switch the headlights off. Then, open the hood using the primary and auxiliary release latches.
  • 2 Use a socket wrench to remove the two 10mm bolts holding the coolant overflow bottle in place. Pull the bottle out of the engine compartment and set it on the ground (passenger's side bulb replacement only.)
  • 3 Undo the bolt at the top of the air filter box, lift the top open and remove the filter from the engine compartment. Then, undo the fasteners holding the air dam in place and remove it from the filter box (driver's side bulb replacement only.)
  • 4 Pull the entire air box out of the car to access the backside of the headlight assembly.
  • 5 Turn the bulb socket counterclockwise to remove it from the assembly. Then, release the retaining spring, undo the electrical connector and carefully remove the old bulb from the socket.
  • 6 Hold the new bulb by its plastic base and insert it into the socket. Reattach the electrical connector and replace the retaining spring.
  • 7 Switch the headlights on to test the new bulb. If it works, reinstall the air box or coolant bottle and close the hood

    Need to replace headlight lens on a 1996 dodge avenger


    Usually, one has to get the entire headlight assembly to replace the lens.
    Is it cracked?
    If it is just faded, try some anti-haze polish for headlights. This can save you some money compared to restoring the headlamp by replacing the assembly (which may be available from a salvage yard).

    REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

    CAUTION
    Halogen bulbs contain gas which is under
    pressure. Handling the bulbs incorrectly could cause it to shatter into flying
    glass fragments. Do NOT leave the light switch ON. Always allow the bulb to cool
    before removal. Handle the bulb only by the base; avoid touching the glass
    itself. Whenever handling a halogen bulb, ALWAYS follow these precautions:

    • Turn the headlight switch OFF and allow the bulb to cool before
      changing it. Leave the switch OFF until the change is complete.
    • ALWAYS wear eye protection when changing a halogen bulb.
    • Handle the bulb only by its base. Avoid touching the glass.
    • DO NOT drop or scratch the bulb.
    • Keep dirt and moisture away from the bulb.
    • Place the used bulb in the new bulb's package and dispose of it properly.

    How to replace the headlight on a 1987 chevy el camino


    Check this GM Chevy Mid-Size Cars 1964-1988 procedure from Repair Guide...


    Headlights - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
    If some or all of the headlight bulbs being replaced still operate, refer to the headlight aiming procedure later in this section to ease checking or adjustment of the headlights after installation.
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Loosen and remove the retaining screws, then remove the headlight bezel from the front of the vehicle.
    3. On most models, the headlight bulb retaining ring is only held on by retaining screws. If so, remove the bulb retaining ring screws. These are the screws which hold the thin metal ring which holds the bulb against the adjusting plate. Do not touch the two headlight aiming screws, at the center of the top and side of the retaining ring (these screws will have different heads), or the headlight aim will have to be re-adjusted.

    One way to identify the retaining ring screws is that they will be threaded through a lip on the outer edge of the retaining ring before threading through the adjusting plate. One the other hand, the adjustment screws are threaded through the adjustment plate and a spring loaded holder underneath it.

    Fig. 1: Exploded view of a common dual headlight mounting assembly-1983 Malibu shown typical
    1. Some later model vehicles will use a spring on the retaining ring. If so equipped, disengage the spring from the retaining ring, using a cotter pin removal tool, then remove the retaining ring screws.
    2. Pull the bulb and ring forward and then separate them. Unplug the electrical connector from the rear of the bulb and remove the bulb from the vehicle.
    To install:
    1. Plug the new bulb into the electrical connector.
    2. Position the retaining ring over the bulb, then install the assembly to the adjusting plate. Secure using the retaining screws and, if applicable, the spring.
    3. Install and secure the headlight bezel.
    4. Connect the negative battery cable.

    How to replace low beam bulb on 2004 baja


    I was able to locate an owners manual for the vehicle. The large plastic weatherguard protecting the headlight bulb connections needs to be rotated CCW about 90 degrees, and removed to provide access to the bulbs. Then remove the center connection for the low beam and release the spring clip retainer to release the low beam bulb. Replace with new bulb and reconnect/reinstall retainer clip, center connector wire, and weatherguard. Note that this is the procedure for the Turbo Baja...non-Turbo model is different.

    Trying to replace a front headlight bulb on 2001 acura 3.2 TL


    Are you talking about the retaining spring that holds the bulb in?

    If so just pull the metal spring toward you and away from bulb. It may need a little jiggly but it will come out.

    Do not test the headlight until you have the unit reassembled.

    Dont touch the bulb glass with your bare hand either. It can cause the bulb to blow when you turn the light on.

    Headlights


    Caution: Halogen bulbs become very hot during use. Do not touch them or the attaching hardware immediately after turning them off. Also, DO NOT TOUCH the glass of the halogen bulbs. If you do, carefully clean with alcohol and a clean cloth.
    1) Disconnect the 3 pin connector form the headlight.
    Left headlight: Remove the washer filler assembly
    Right headlight: Remove the air intake cover
    2) Remove the rubber cap.
    3) Pull the retaining spring away from the back of the bulb, then remove the bulb.
