Your average cars headlights can be reached by popping the hood. Once the hood is popped you can look down between the radiator and front clip and there is a white or yellow plug that you twist and it will pull out exposing the bulb. All you have to do now is replace the bulb and plug it back in.

How do I replace the headlight assembly MN133516


The 2003 Outlander utilizes replaceable (9007) headlight bulbs. If you're looking to replace the bulb(s);
1. Raise the hood.
2. Remove the plastic cover at the rear of the headlamp assembly by rotating it counterclockwise, and pulling it off. This will allow access to the headlight bulb.
3. Twist the bulb socket counterclockwise in order to remove it from the headlamp assembly. Pull the old bulb out of the socket, and use a clean cloth to install the replacement bulb. Do not touch the glass of the new bulb.
4. Place the socket back into the assembly, and twist it clockwise. Reattach the plastic cover, and close the hood.
Are you needing DIY instructions for replacing the entire headlamp assembly? Left (driver) or Right (passenger)?

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

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

  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.

Reverse the process to install new bulb.

I need to change low beam bulb how to get old one


Depends on which side you are working on. The easiest way actually involves more steps, in my opinion. On the passenger side, take out the air box to access the 10 mm nut for the entire headlight assembly. Remove the two 10mm bolts on top of the headlight assembly, pull the whole thing out, mindful that the wires are still attached. Remove the cover to the bulb, unclip the wire holding the metal base to the assembly and remove the bulb. Pull on the wire connector to remove from the bulb. The reason this is simpler is because of the wire part that holds the bulb base onto the assembly. With the assembly in place, you can't get a good view of the thing to unhook it or re-hook it.
The driver's side is a bit easier--you only need a deep socket 10mm to remove the nut holding the assembly to the frame or if you don't have a deep socket, remove the fill tube for the winshield washer, then remove the nut. Remove the two bolts holding the assembly on top and continue as with the passenger side. DO NOT TOUCH THE BULB!!! Your fingerprint oils will cause the bulb to fail earlier than it should.

Xenon headlight problems


there are 3 things that make the xenon in your car work the bulb, an ignitor, and a control module, you know your bulbs are ok so thats good, now you will want to swap the control modules they are a metal box attached to the headlight assembly its roughly 4"x4" you will remove the hheadlight assemblys to get to the module, there are 4 8mm bolts and then it pulls out, it the light follows the control module then thats what you will need if not you will need an ignigtor, as far as the flickering that is moet likely the module going bad, the company that makes this system is AL (automotive lighting) there is an SIB from BMW about this that says under a warr claim both control modules are to be replaced and the bulb of the faulty headlight, however i cant count the number of times i have done all that and still have to replace the ignigtor, If it is the Ign that is alot harder to swap as you have to dis assembly the entire light assembly

Driver's side Headlight Bulb Replacement


Do you mean the entire headlight assembly or just the bulb?
If it's the entire headlamp look at the new one to see where the fastening points are, the grill may have to be removed and also the parking lamp lens, if it's just the bulb it's easy Open your hood look at the back of the headlight assembly and twist the bulb holder ring to release it. Good Luck To You

I need help changing out my headlight on the passenger side


typically you will want to replace both lights at the same time. Assuming the bulb has gone bad, it's a relatively simple fix. A new set of bulbs range from $20-$60 and to replace them you simply open the hood and find where they would fit into the back of the headlight assembly. Grab the entire wire and all where it meets the assembly and turn it a quarter turn. Remove the old bulb and replace it. Voila

This problem is now resolved, thanks to a prior post by sableowner.

http://www.fixya.com/cars/t1479995-2001_merc_sable_headlight_replacement

The 2003 Sable has the same headlight assembly and removal/replacement instructions as the 2001 Sable. Once I had this information in hand, bulb replacement was easy.

Headlight replacement


you doo not need to remove the bumper...the rt side is a bit tighter than the left side though..on the back of the headlamp are plastic screw retainers..they turn 1/4 to 1/2 turn to unlock the headlamp bulbs.( you could remove the battery to do this..it will certainly give you more room.) once you turn the lock grab the bulb and pull it straight back , unplug it and plug the new one in. be careful not to touch the new bulb glass with your fingers as this can get oil on the surface and create a "hot spot" which can lead to premature failure!
