Replace them again and install with gloves on. Oils in your hands destroys these bulbs prematurely

I need to replace the drivers side low beam on my 2008 subaru tribeca


The High and low beams are all in the same bulb. You have to reach in behind the light in the engine compartment and undo the retaining collar and pull it out and then pull the bulb assembly out if it separates from the collar. Unplug the bulb and replace it. I usually stop at Walmart and use the little box they have there to find the proper bulb for the vehicle, in most cases they are the less costly of the places you can get the bulbs.

I have both of my low beam lights out, could you please let me know what the procedure is to replace them?


wait one second, both low beam lights went out at the same time? If so, sounds like something else is wrong, and I'ld suppect the hi/low beam switch. If the car is this new there should be a warranty on it to be replaced.

Trying to change low beam light in subarau tribeca 2008- need to see schematic


Hello SUBY bro, kick me if I'm wrong but imho this should not be that complicated to require a schematic......Below is the reply I posted here on FixYa for another 08 Tribeca owner......Peace

We have an 05 Legacy and I've done this. Tribeca should be the same way: Look through the engine bay2.gif behind the light, you can locate the position by following the wires which actually connect to the bulb assembly. The bulb assembly ought to be removable with a 1/4-1/2 turn and pull motion. Be sure to not touch the replacement bulb with your bare hands. Your Subaru service ought to help you with this and not charge you......

Subaru Tribeca Headlights


The usual reason it would seem the length of use would be shortened is that most Subaru owners leave there lights on every where they go day and night. Really does shorten the time in days but not really the time of being on. Just a thought. Happy trails.

How do you change the low-beam light bulb on Subaru Tribeca? Cant get the headlight assembly out. Have taken the two screws out, but something else holding lower corner.


I just had to do this and learned the hard way.

First take the battery out.
Second remove the plastic cap covering the low beam bulb
Thirdly there are 2 screws holding a wire tension spring against the bulb. Losen the screw towards the outside of the car (Don't touch the screw closest to the engin).

Once you do this, the bulb will come out and you can replace it.
