I could track it down and e/mail it to you, but your best bet is to get a Haynes Manual for your vehicle (free from all libraries) or at most any auto parts store or thru Amazon.

Just a tip:

Odds are they are halogen bulbs.
Handle the bulbs with gloves while installing.
If not, the oil from your fingers can cause them to blow once they get

Good luck.

How do I replace the bi-xenon bulb in my 2007 Volvo C70

I just did this on my 2008 C70, which I believe uses the same type of bulb. It's very easy. By the time you do your second one, you can probably do it in less than 5 minuites.

1) Take careful note of the orientation of the headlight houseing retaining pin, HID transformer, and bulb retention device.
2) Refer to the owners manual to pull the headlight housing retaining pin.
3) Pull the headlight housing forward until you can access the wiring harness plug. Push the clip on the top of the plug to unlock, then remove the plug.
4) At this poing the entire headlight housing is detached from the car. Take it indoors and have a beer before the next step.
5) Push back the two spring clips and remove the access door from the back of the headlight housing.
6) At this point in the owners manual, the instructions tell you to refer the problem to an expert and do not provide further details. Shoot you got the darn thing out. And you have a beer in hand. You look like an expert. Let's continue.....
7) The low beam light has a transforer attached to the back of the bulb. Unplug the wires attached to the transformer.
7) Twist the transformer counter clockwise 1/8 turn, and remove the transformer.
8) The base of the bulb is now visiable, but the bulb is held in by a large retaining knurled plastic knob about 1-3/4 inch in diameter. Twiist that knob 1/8 inch turn counter clockwise and remove.
9) The old bulb is now free, and can be removed. Do not touch the glass on the new bulb, but carefully seat it in the same orientation in the housing.
10) Assembly is a reverse of the previous steps. Hopefully you paid attention to the orientation during removal, as the bulb, retaining knob, transformer, and housing retaining pin all are keyed and will fit in one way only.
11) Have another beer, and bask in the admiration of your family and friends, you expert you! Congratulations!

How do you replace the fog light bulb on 2008 avalanche

    • 1 Open the hood and reach down into the engine bay for the fog light assembly. If you cannot reach the fog light assembly from the top you may need to get underneath the truck to reach it. Remove the electrical plug running to the fog light ballast.
    • 2 Remove the bulb. Unlock the fog light bulb by turning it counterclockwise and pulling it straight out of the assembly.
    • 3 Slide a new bulb into the fog light assembly. The part number you will need for the new bulb will be located on the ballast or base of the old bulb.

Describe how to change fog lamp (just the bulb) on 2005 subaru forester. As far as I know the fog light assembly is fine, the bulb has just burned out. If you know which bulb to use please let me know,...

2005 Forester - It is easiest to remove the fog assembly.

1. From underneath the vehicle pry out one plastic fastener to be able to bend the light weight plastic mud protector downward. You will see the underside of the fog light assembly with one 10mm bolt directly above you. Remove this bolt.
2. From the front of the vehicle unscrew one 10mm bolt at top of fog light (this is the shorter of the 2 by the way) and pry out one plastic rivet adjacent to it.

3. Carefully remove the fog assembly and disconnect 2-pin power connector by pulling up on the release. Carefully wiggle the housing out (no force req'd).
4. Unscrew the back from the housing and replace H3 bulbs. Take care not to touch the bulb while replacing.

5. Reverse to install.

Should take an hour at most.

Put new bulbs in fog lights, now fog lights wont come on. 98 cadi catera. replaced old bulbs with new halogen bulbs now neither fog light will come on

Halogen bulbs are brighter and generally draw more current than standard filament ones.
Have you check that the supply fuse has not popped ?

Changing fog light bulb

I just replaced the fog light bulb on my 2008 Azera. I went under the car and removed two screws from the protective shield. I pulled down the shield and reached up and turned the fog light socket and pulled it out of the housing, remembering which side the wires were on and removed the old bulb (Don't touch the new bulb with your hand) and replaced it with the new bulb. The job took less then 15 minutes
