Remove the carpet covering the inside near the headlight. Remove round rubber plug. (pull hard, the plug has NO WIRES coming out of it) Use the 5mm wrench that is in the toolkit. (toolkit is behind the spare tire). Turn the wrench 180 degrees and the whole headlight assembly will loosen. Pull out the whole assembly. Remove plastic end cap. The high beam, low beam and parking bulbs are all right inside that cover. Just did my 2002 for the first time. This is also covered in the manual if you have one. Thanks, max327@aol.com

2011 Legacy with front light issues


Interesting question. Bulbs do burn out, but premature failure is often caused by overvoltage from the alternator. Have your dealer check the alternator for correct voltage AND waveforms. You can check it yourself with a multimeter. If the battery voltage is more than about 14.5Vdc, eg 15+, the alternator has to be replaced.

Relplaced both headlights on Subaru Legacy 2011, Is this normal?


Generally, it is better to replace both at the same time, simply because the possibility of the other one following after. BUT $150.00? wow, that is not something that would void your warranty if you replace it yourself. The bulbs are as cheap as $7.00 at your local parts store. Save yourself $130.00 and replace them yourself. ^^ Good luck and hope this helps. P.S. If you are talking about the entire headlight assembly, then $150.00 is more than fare.

Changing Low Beam Headlamp Replacement 2005 Mazda 3.


Check out the following:
It's not easy. You need a flashlight. First, take the batter vent assembly off by removing the screw over the headlamp assembly. Open the battery box by snapping off the tabs, lift out, and move the vent to the side. Second, disconnect the headlight wire by pressing down on the opposing tabs located on the side of the connector and pull straight back. Move the wire to the side. Next, peel the rubber fitting around the bulb (located on the back of the headlamp assembly). Look inside the headlamp assembly with a flashlight to see what you got yourself into. You'll have to unhook the retainer wire that holds the bulb in place. This requires you to push the top part of the wire toward the front of the car and lift up. The wire should swing to the left (passenger side) releasing the bulb and bulb housing. Pull the old bulb out of the housing (it might be tight), replace with the new one (try not to touch the glass). Replace the bulb/housing. Make sure the little tap fits back into its slot (upper diver side). Push the wire clamp back over the bulb, pushing up back and down making sure it's hooked and your done. It seems easy once you've done it.
Good luck! EJ Kudelka
