You can remove the inner fender well and gain access to the bulb with a little luck and creativity. Removing the wheel will make this a little easier. Make sure you check the connector as they have issues with them melting.

Changing a headlight on a 2008 prius



I just did this and it was a pain. There are several YouTube videos out there but nit real clear. First remove the cover to the fuse box. Then locate the light housing. The black plastic housing with fins needs to be turned counter clockwise about 3/4- 1 inch or so to pop off the housing. The problem is if the seals are dry it is almost impossible. Don't bang on the fins as they will break. I used wd40 along the top of the seals to penetrate the seals for about 20 min. Wipe up the excess as you don't want oil on any of the new bulbs. Mark the outside and inside of the housing with a scribe line to note your progress with the turn. Sometimes a vacuum will keep the housing from popping out. You can drill a very, very small hole in the housing to release the vacuum and them resell the hole with super glue. To remove the silver looking backing to the bulb you need to turn counter clockwise 1/8 turn and pull. There are two clips that are holding the bulb in place. Push down the side clips and move away from the housing to the outside. Once both clips are released it should rotate backward like a hinge away from the bulb. Replace the bulb with the new one and make sure the bulb is inserted with the long rod on the bottom. I just looked through the lens as I inserted the new bulb. Rotate the clip assembly forward a reattach the clips on each side and reattach the silver electrical connector and turn clockwise 1/8 turn to secure in place. Reattach housing and rotate clockwise to align scribe marks.

How to change a headlight for Saturn outlook for 2007


I have an Outlook that was burning through bulbs. The best way to change it, is to remove the inner fender well and it gives you easy access to the rear of the headlight assembly. It takes about 2 min and no skinny hands required.

Replace headlight on 2008 saturn outlook


I was able to replace this bulb via the wheel well. There were 4 small screws holding the liner on. I was then able to bend the liner back + turn the light bulb dust cover and remove it. The bulb assembly also had to be turned to pull it out. I then removed the wireplug. My bulb was intact + the wire connecting to the bulb was the problem. I simply brushed off some of the carbon residue from the wireset overheating. Then reattached it which worked long enough to buy a new wireset. I am very disapointed I had to do this basic repair on my fairly new outlook 500 miles out of a 36k warranty

2008 Saturn Outlook - How do I replace the low beam headlight? If it is not an easy fix, how much should I expect to pay a mechanic to do it?


This has to be done by pulling the bumper off. More then likely there will be a burned up harness (recurring problem with the 2008 Saturn Outlook) the cost from my Saturn dealership is $185.00 to replace the harness and bulb. Very poor engineering when you have to pay $185.00 to change a bulb.

Well according to my mitchell manuel you don't have to.here is the procedure.
1. open the hood.
2.Remove the push-pin retainer's that secure the top of the upper facia and grill assembly to the upper tie bar to allow the upper facia and grill assembly to flex forward.
3. remove ther bolt and push-pin retainer that secures the top of the headlight assembly to the upper tie bar.
4. Gently pull the upper facia and grill assembly forward to access the bolt on the inboard side of the headlight assembly
5. Pull the headlamp assembly straight out to disengage the the snap in retainer at the lower outboard back surface of the assembly. Turn the assembly so that the inboard assembly clears the front facia.
6. pull the assembly out and away from the veh.From there you'll be able to access bulbs.
be careful not to touch the bulb with fingers or oil in skin will blow bulb.
Good luck.
