How to replace the Low Beam (9006) bulbs on a Magnum SXT

The 9005's are easily accessible and on top. The 9006's are lower and tucked into either side. Can anyone suggest how to get to these little guys?

    Hi C17,

    Not the Fog lights, the 9006 low beam bulb in the headlight. They're located under the 9005 bulb and sort of "tucked in" if you will towards the fender. The passenger side is somewhat accessible, but not sure how to get to the one on the driver's side.

    Hi C17,
    Thank you, I appreciate the info. I also found the following information for future reference if anyone else has the same question:
    On the drivers side you will need to take out your air box and move the power steering fluid reservoir to access the 9006 bulb. On the passenger side you just kinda gotta get your hand down in there... or you can take out your headlights...

How do i know highbeam from the low beam

I have a 2006 civic SI. DRL indicator is on, driver side low and high beam ok. Passenger side low beam ok but DRL and hi beam not working. Any help is appreciated.

When either the high or low beam light is out in either side, DRL (daytime running lights) indicator will come on. When one bulb goes out, that's a clue the opposite bulb will burn out soon, so its best to replace both bulbs. If it was a fuse issue, both left and right side would be out. If driver side is OK but passenger side is not, then its a bulb issue. A 2006 Honda civic takes 9006 (HB4) low beam bulbs and 9005 (HB3) high beam bulbs. Cheapest is online from Walmart site-2-store. After procuring, wear latex, vinyl, or ANY gloves to keep your (corrosive) oil skin from coming in contact with headlight glass bulbs. Your skin oil will chemically react and cause shorter life span on glass bulbs. Instruction don't tell you this, so you handle with your hands, then need to replace bulbs 3 years later instead of 5 years (or more) in the future. With gloves on, pop the hood and look behind each headlight. Turn counter clockwise to unlock headlight bulb holders. Its a quarter to half turn to unlock bulb holder lock. Replace one bulb at a time so you don't confuse high beam from low beam. The wire has a tab you need to lift to pull out & disconnect wire connector. You might need a slim narrow-**** (NOT phillips) screwdriver to lift the tab; or use your house key. Snap the wire connector to the new bulb, then twist into headlight housing to secure bulb holders, then move on to the next bulb to repeat the procedure. Pict below, 9005 high beam is on the left, 9006 low beam is on the right. Handle by grasping the plastic base, not the glass bulbs. The raised potrusion on the bottom center is where the tab locks onto wire connector. Replace all 4 bulbs now, but in the future, its likely the low beam will wear out before the high beam. In the future, replace only the pair, not all 4. The factory installs inferior bulbs that go out sooner, hoping you'll take to dealership and they ******** you with higher parts-n-labor fees. As opposed to Walmart online site-2-store, it would cost you AT LEAST triple in parts & labor from dealership to replace all 4 headlight bulbs :-(

How do i replace a low beam head light on a 94' camry ?

Things You'll Need:
  • #H11-55W and #9005 replacement bulbs (low- and high-beam bulbs for 2007 and later models)
  • #9006 and #9005 replacement bulbs (low- and high-beam bulbs for 2002-2006 models).
STEPS TO REPLACE HEAD LIGHT: Shut off the Camry's engine and set the parking brake for added safety. Also, make sure its headlights are switched off. Open the hood using the primary and auxiliary hood release latches. Locate the back of the headlight assembly and determine whether the low- or high-beam bulb needs to be replaced. Turn the headlight bulb socket counterclockwise to remove it from the assembly. Unplug the electrical connector from the back of the bulb. Carefully dispose of the bulb to prevent it from shattering or cracking.

How do i replace the headlight bulb?

I am not familiar with the 94 Camry headlight bulbs; however, we have a 94 Lexus ES. The layout is probably the same.

The bulbs are easily accessible under the hood. The bulbholders rotate about 30 degrees and then release. Pull them out, replace the bulb, reinsert them, and rotate back to the original position. You can do all four in 10 minutes. The bulbs are likely 9006 (low beams) and 9005 (high beams).

Replacing a headlight bulb, low beam, in a 2004 Chevi Trailblazer

Your first stop should be to your local auto parts shop to get the bulbs you need. You'll need to pick up #9006 bulb, this one has a gray bas and is used for replacing the outside high beam. If you are looking to replace your inner low beams you'll need to pick up #9005 which has a black base. The bulbs should run you about $16.00 USD.
Alright once you have your bulb and are ready to replace it make sure you have popped the hood the release lever is on the inside of your vehicle.
While facing your car with the hood open, your going to remove the grill by pushing down on the two retainer clips which are on the top of the grill. You'll need a flathead screwdriver to help you with the rest of the retainer clips. There are two on the bottom ends of your grill one in the center and 2 on each side. Now you'll just pull up on the grill and it should come out easily.
On each side of the headlamp you should see a One inch long tab, when you pull up on the tabs it will release the headlamp so that you may pull the headlamp toward you. Pull the head lamp out.

There will be two round rubber caps at the rear of the headlamp. Remove the caps and then pull out the wire harness from the bulb.
Replace the bulb or bulbs and remember that #9006 has the gray base and is for the high beam and #9005 is for the low beam and has the black base. Reconnect the wire harness and replace everything to its original position and now you have a fixed headlamp! Congratulations!
