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.

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)?

How do you replace the drivers side low beam headlight on the 2008 GMC Acadia?


{: ) REMOVE THE LEFT FRONT WHEELHOUSE LINER
The wheelhouse liner is sometimes called the mud guard or the splash shield, whatever.
You may remove the left front tire.

-Start removing all those push pins and #7mm screws. No need to remove the entire liner. You may loosen only the half portion, just enough clearance for your arms to reach inside and aim for the rear of the headlamp.

-Reach for the Headlamp Bulb Accessory Cover. Rotate the cover counterclockwise and remove.

-Release the bulb from the headlamp assembly (turn counterclockwise) Disconnect the electrical connector. Just remember the positioning of the bulb so you can swiftly reinstall a new bulb.

How do i change headlamp bulbs


Changing the headlight bulb is a little bitdifficult for those not familiar with the vehicle. Both the high and low beamsare encased in a sealed unit, which also contains the turn signal, parkinglights, and side reflector.

Once you understand how to remove thesealed headlight unit from the car, replacing the bulb is relatively simple.Follow the steps below on how to change the headlamp bulb in this car. Removal 1. Open the hood of the Jeep and locate thelong, headlamp jackscrew. The screw is located almost directly above theheadlight unit and can be removed using a 7-mm socket wrench. This will allowyou to remove the bezel from the grill opening panel. Remove the three screwsattached to the retaining ring to the headlight console. The screws are locatedon the bottom front and side of the unit. In some models the screws have beenreplaced with ball-stud alignment posts, enabling you to remove the headlightunit by simply wiggling it loose. 3. Disconnect the headlamp bulb wireharness connector located at the front of the headlight unit. This is locateddirectly above and between the parking and turning bulbs. 4. Separate the sealed headlight unit fromthe vehicle; disconnect and replace the old bulb. The high beam is locatedtoward the center of the car. The low beam is the bulb on the outermost edge ofthe unit. This is how to Install 1. Reconnect the headlamp bulb's wireharness-connector. Then Replace the headlight unit in the headlight canister. Positionthe retaining ring back in its original position and install the three screwsagain. If you wiggled the unit out, ensure that it is replaced firmly. 2.

    How do I change the back turn signal on my 2001 ford taurus


    DIY - 5 Minute Turn Signal Bulb Replacement This is very simple to do. First you will need an 8mm socket and wrench to loosen one bolt. Second a good long flat head screwdriver. There are two black metal folded tabs behind the headlight assembly and one 8mm bolt holding it in plae at the center point of the front of the car. Loosen the bolt and remove. Use the screw driver to pull up the metal straps and then slide forward the entire assembly. This will slide easily unless your front bumper has been bumped! That will make it a little difficult to slide if it is out of alignment. If it was never bumped than this should take all of 5 minutes.

    Replacing front parking lamp/turn signal/cornering lamp bulbs
    1. Remove headlight / lens assembly per below steps mentioned later

    2. Rotate the bulb socket of the offending bulb counterclockwise and remove from the lamp assembly.

    3. Carefully pull bulb straight out of the socket and push in the new bulb

    4. Install the bulb socket into the headlight assembly by rotating it clockwise

    5. Re-install headlight assembly - hold snugly into place until the brackets line up and retainer pins can be pushed down

    To replace headlight bulb:
    1. Make sure headlight switch is turned OFF.

    2. Remove the bolt at the end of the headlamp housing.

    3. Pull the two black tabs with the L shaped bracket toward the back and then up and pull out(Located at the back of the headlamp) to release the headlamp assembly from the vehicle and pull headlamp assembly forward.

    4. Disconnect the electrical connector from the bulb by pulling it.

    5. Remove the bulb socket retaining ring by rotating it counterclockwise.

    6. Remove the bulb from the lamp assembly by pulling straight back.
      Do not twist, as there are alignment slots built into the lamp assembly socket.
      It may take some effort to remove the lamp because it has a rubber o-ring type seal - try a bit of wiggling side-to-side

    7. Insert new bulb into headlight assembly - don't touch the glass - use gloves, paper towel, or similar
      Make sure that the flat surface of the bulb socket is facing upward, and is firmly seated

    10. Re-install headlight assembly - hold snugly into place until the brackets line up and retainer pins can be pushed down

    NOTES
    • Do not touch the glass of the new halogen bulb - the oils in the skin will shorten the life-span of the new bulb, or possibly cause the bulb to explode when first turned on

      If the bulb is accidentally touched, it should be cleaned with rubbing alcohol before being used.

    I need to replace the driver side low beam headlamp bulb, but the bulb itself can't be removed. I have removed the battery for easier access. HELP !


    The low beam bulb, drivers side, can be replaced by removing the entire headlight assembly, unplugging the electrical connection to the bulb, "pinch" the retaining clip on the bulb and the bulb comes right out. The only problem is the cost of the bulb---about $ 140. The replacement took about 45-50 minutes to complete.

    How do I replace headlamp bulb?


    Some imports require the entire light assembly to be removed in order to replace headlamps. Look to see if there are angled rods on the back side of the light assembly. If so, see if the can be pulled straight up towards the hood of the car. When they are released the headlight will be able to come forward. Good luck. Hope this helps.

    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.
