Here is a link for removing your front bumber, which you need to do in order to remove your headlights. http://forums.clubrsx.com/showthread.php?t=472999&highlight=Headlight Once the bumper is removed, there are about 4 bolts and one skrew that hold each head light on. Two bolts on top, one bolt on the side, and one bolt on the bottom (you'll need a long extention for the one on the bottom). The little skrew is on top as well. Oh and you also need to dis-connect the harnesses that are connected to each light on the back of the headlights.

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 to replace the headlights


I assume you're referring to the bulbs and not the entire assembly:

First, you have to remove the turn signal assembly. For this, you need a small star shaped screwdriver and remove the 1 screw holding the turn signal in place. Pull straight out and remove the bulbs from the signal assembly by turning the sockets about 1/4 turn. Set that aside.
Second, there's 3 bolts that will be holding the headlight assembly in place. One is accessable from the engine compartment with the hood up. The other two are located under the headlight. (All of them face the front of the car). Remove all three and the headlight will be able to swing out, giving you access to the sockets and bulbs. Remove the bulb connector from the bulb first, then twist the bulb retaining ring and pull the bulb straight out after the ring is off.
Reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.

If you're looking to completely remove the entire headlight assembly, it's the same process, but the piece that lets the headlight swing out (instead of coming off completely) must be removed. It's a simple plastic ball and socket swivel. Just tug hard and the ball will come loose from the socket.

How to replace headlight bulbs. How to access


Locate where the wires go into the headlight on the engine side. You should be able to find the locking collar. Turn it counter clockwise and remove the bulb at this point you should just have to unplug the old bulb and reverse the process to install the new bulb.

1) open the hood.
2) Carefully remove the three screws holding the headlight assembly in place.
3) Carefully slide the headlight assembly out. At this point you can replace the headlight bulb, turn signal bulb, or the entire headlight assembly. To replace the headlight bulb turn the collar holding the bulb in counter clockwise. Pull the bulb out of the headlight assembly. Replace the bulb. Insert the bulb into the headlight assembly insert the collar and turn clockwise until it locks. (Do not touchglass with your fingers or it will cause the bulbs to catastrophically fail - clean with alcohol pad if you touch the glass)
4) Carefully insert the headlight assembly back into place.
5) Replace the three screws removed in step 2 being careful not to over tighten.

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 backof the headlight assembly and twist the bulb holder ring to release it. Good Luck To You
