The bulbs just twist off from the rear headlight in a large plastic socket, once you twist the socket out the halogen bulb pulls out of the socket when you pull tyhe lock tab up when replacing do not touch the bulb with your fingers use a soft dry cloth and clip the bulb back in and then retwist the sicket back on firmly

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
  1. 1

    Undo the clips on the air intake ducts using a screwdriver and remove the duct from the engine compartment ( drivers 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

    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.

Can you help me change my headlight assembley? i have a 97 200sx SE


1.) Pop the hood to your Nissan. The headlight assemblies are only accessible from the engine compartment.

2.) Clear the area behind the bulb you are replacing. If you are replacing the passenger side bulb, you will need to remove the radiator overflow bottle. The bottle will unhook from its connective tube by pulling it toward the front of the car and up from the ground. If you are replacing the driver's side bulb, you may need to remove the battery. You will do this by unscrewing the positive (red) and negative (black) terminals that connect the battery to the engine, and then lifting the battery straight out of its housing.
3.) Remove the electrical connection on the back of each headlight assembly. This will be a bundle of wires with a wide plug sticking into the back of the assembly.
4.) Unlatch the plastic clip holding the headlight assembly case in place.
5.) Pry the small metal clip holding the bulb using your fingers or a screwdriver. Be careful not to bend, break or damage the clip or the bulb.
6.) Insert the replacement bulb into the headlight socket and reattach the metal clip that holds the bulb in place.
7.) Relatch the plastic clip holding the headlight assembly case in place.
8.) Reconnect the electrical connection to the back of the headlight assembly.
9.) Replace the radiator overflow bottle or the battery, depending on which bulb you replaced.

How to replace toyota matrix front headlight bulb


Hi,

Replacing a headlight on a Toyota Matrix is a simple process that only requires the use of a screwdriver and a replacement bulb. The Matrix uses 9006 bulbs for the low beams and 9005 bulbs for the high beams. Headlight bulbs can be purchased at auto parts stores.
Replacing Low Beam Bulb
  1. Turn off the engine of the Matrix and open the hood
  2. Rotate the bulb base in the headlamp assembly counterclockwise to remove the low beam bulb. Unplug the electrical connector. If the connector is too tight, wiggle it slightly to help remove it.
  3. Install a new bulb into the connector and place it into the assembly. Rotate it clockwise to lock it into place. Close the hood.
Replacing High Beam Bulb
  1. Turn off the engine of the Matrix and open the hood. If replacing the left-hand headlight, remove the air cleaner duct by removing the securing clip with a screwdriver and pulling the duct out of the vehicle.
  2. Turn the bulb base counterclockwise to remove it. Unplug the electrical connector.
  3. Install a new bulb into the connector and place the bulb into the assembly. Rotate it clockwise to lock it into place. Reattach the air cleaner duct if replacing the left-hand headlight. Close the hood
I hope this helps.

Best regards.

HOW TO REPLACE A HEADLIGHT BULB ON A TOYOTA PREVIA 2.0D T3


Replacing a headlight bulb for Toyota Previa. Quite simple. Open the hood. Look for the black plastic coupling or ring on the backside of the headlight. Grasp and turn counterclockwise (i believe it will be about a quarter turn). pull the socket out, then replace the bulb. I believe it is code #9004. Strongly recommend replacing both headlights at the same time.


Good luck

How to change headlights on 2004 ram1500


If you are replacing the headlight bulbs, rotate the bulb retaining lock ring counter-clockwise, pull retainer out of headlight housing and disconnect electrical connector. On the drivers side, you have to remove the fuse and relay box screws and move the box to the side to access the headlight bulb. If you are replacing the headlight housings, there is a push pin and 2 screws on the inside, behind the hood and one screw on the outside at the bottom. Remove these and pull the housing out enough to remove the bulb retainers.
