Removing low beam bulb on 05 subaruoutback


Whether they become damaged in an accident or simply burn out over time, your Subaru Outback's headlights may eventually need to be replaced. Fortunately, once you've purchased the right replacement bulb for your model year, performing the repair yourself is relatively easy. These instructions only apply to Outback models made after 2000.

  1. Undo the clips on the air intake ducts using a screwdriver and remove the duct from the engine compartment (driver's side bulb removal only.)

  2. 2

    Loosen the secured clip on the washer tank with a screwdriver and slide the tank horizontally to allow easier access to the headlight assembly (passenger's side bulb removal only.)

  3. 3

    Turn the bulb cover counterclockwise and remove it from the assembly.

  4. 4

    Disconnect the headlight electrical connector and undo the assembly retaining spring.

  5. 5

    Pull the old bulb directly out of the socket and replace it with the new one. Press the retaining spring back into place and reattach the electrical connector.

  6. 6

    Replace the bulb cover, and then turn on the engine. Test the new headlight to make sure it works before replacing the air intake duct or the washer tank and closing the hood.

    Replacing the High-Beam Bulbs
  1. 1

    Undo the clips on the air intake ducts using a screwdriver and remove the duct from the engine compartment ( drivers side bulb removal only.)

  3. 3

    Disconnect the headlight electrical connector and undo the assembly retaining spring.

  4. 4

    Turn the headlight bulb counterclockwise and pull it out of the socket.

  5. 5

    Reinstall the new bulb, replace the retaining spring and reconnect the electrical connector.

  6. 6

    Test the new headlight to make sure it works before replacing the air intake duct or the washer tank and closing the hood.

Removing headlamp


  • Place a piece of cardboard between the headlight and the bumper to protect your vehicle from getting scratched when you remove the headlight. Use masking tape to hold the cardboard in place.
  • 2 Remove the four screws that hold the headlight to the vehicle's frame. Pull the headlight away from the vehicle's frame so you have access to the back of the headlight.
  • 3 Locate the electrical connector block on the back of the headlight. Squeeze the sides of the block and pull it away from the headlight to access the bulb.
  • 4 Remove the bulb from the headlight. Push the bulb in, toward the connector block, and turn it until it releases. Push the new bulb into the block and turn it until it locks in place.
  • 5 Plug the electrical connector block back into the headlight and place the headlight back into the vehicle's frame. Secure the headlight with the screws. Remove the cardboard from the vehicle bumper.

    Can you help me change my headlight assembley? i have a 97 200sx SE


    1.) Pop the hood to your Nissan. The headlight assemblies are only accessible from the engine compartment.

    2.) Clear the area behind the bulb you are replacing. If you are replacing the passenger side bulb, you will need to remove the radiator overflow bottle. The bottle will unhook from its connective tube by pulling it toward the front of the car and up from the ground. If you are replacing the driver's side bulb, you may need to remove the battery. You will do this by unscrewing the positive (red) and negative (black) terminals that connect the battery to the engine, and then lifting the battery straight out of its housing.
    3.) Remove the electrical connection on the back of each headlight assembly. This will be a bundle of wires with a wide plug sticking into the back of the assembly.
    4.) Unlatch the plastic clip holding the headlight assembly case in place.
    5.) Pry the small metal clip holding the bulb using your fingers or a screwdriver. Be careful not to bend, break or damage the clip or the bulb.
    6.) Insert the replacement bulb into the headlight socket and reattach the metal clip that holds the bulb in place.
    7.) Relatch the plastic clip holding the headlight assembly case in place.
    8.) Reconnect the electrical connection to the back of the headlight assembly.
    9.) Replace the radiator overflow bottle or the battery, depending on which bulb you replaced.

    Drivers side headlight bulb replacement


    1. Open the hood to the 1999 Dodge Stratus.

    2. Locate the two headlight lens assembly retaining screws at the top of each side of the assembly.
    3. Remove each screw with the ratchet and a suitable socket.
    4. Place the screwdriver behind the lens assembly to assist in prying out the guide pins that secure and align the headlight assembly. Hold the lens assembly from the outside edge (marker light/directional light section) first and pry from behind with the screwdriver to unseat the guide pins. Pry from the inside end of the lens assembly to unseat the other guide pin.
    5. Pull the lens assembly out far enough to reach behind it and disconnect the headlight bulb wire harness from the back of the bulb. Or simply remove the bulb by twisting the harness and retaining ring counterclockwise and remove it as an assembly.
    6. Turn the marker light/directional light socket and wire counterclockwise to remove it from the headlight lens assembly.
    7. Remove the assembly from the front of the Stratus.

    Removal of head light assy 1989 ford ranger.


    Hello,

    To remove the front head light please follow the steps below:
    1. Place the Ford Ranger in "Park." Turn the engine off. Turn the headlights off. Remove the key from the ignition. Allow the truck to cool for about 20 minutes.
    2. Open the hood of the vehicle. Locate the two retainer pins on the headlight assembly of the light that needs to be replaced. Pry the retainer pins open with your finger. This releases the headlight assembly from the Ranger.
    3. Pull the headlight assembly forward. Unplug the electrical connector from the back of the assembly by hand. Rotate the retaining ring counterclockwise and slide it off the plastic bulb base.
    4. Pull the burned out bulb straight out of the headlight assembly. Discard the used bulb. Insert a replacement bulb into the headlight assembly and push it straight into the socket until it clicks into place. Slide the retaining ring around the bulb and rotate it clockwise to secure it.
    5. Plug the electrical connector into the back of the unit. Slide the headlight assembly back into the Ranger. Push the retaining pins back down to secure the headlight assembly.
    Hope this helped. thank You for using FixYa!!!

    How do I access the low beam headlight assembly on my 3500.


    You can easily access the r/h bulb, by removing the air cleaner housing. loosen the clamp at the throttle body, and unplug the map sensor, pull straight up on entire housing, and it will pull out of the rubber grommets, remove the housing, then change the accesible light. reassemble, and on the driver side, if you take the 10 mm bolot out of the washer fluid fill neck, you can then bend out the filler, and reach in to remove the light. Note, do not touch glass on new bulb, as you do not want to leave skin oil on the bulb. Good luck...Coop

    I can't get to the high beam bulbs on our 2005 Odyssey. How do I remove the headlight for easier access to the bulbs?


    The procedure doesn't call for removing the headlight assembly. It is as follows:
    The high beam headlight bulb and the low beam headlight bulb are replaced the same way.

    Open the hood. To change the high beam headlight bulb on the passenger’s side, remove the power steering fluid reservoir from its holder by pulling it straight up.

    Remove the electrical connector from the bulb by pushing on the tab and pulling the connector down.

    Remove the bulb by turning it one quarter turn counterclockwise.

    Insert the new bulb into the hole and turn it one-quarter turn clockwise to lock it in place.

    Push the electrical connector back onto the bulb. Make sure it is on all the way.

    Turn on the headlights to test the new bulb.

    If you replaced the high beam headlight bulb on the passenger’s side, reinstall the power steering fluid reservoir.

    Hope this helps, but if you are having some specific problem leave a more detailed comment and I will try to help you.

    Lightbulb replacement for 2000 Subaru outback wagon


    all you need to do is remove the clip holding the washer fluid neck filler, once this is out of the way you can access the big gray backing that should have two wires coming out of it. just twist in the direction indicated and remove the cap, now you have access to the back of the bulb, remove the wires attatched to it and remove the metal clip that holds the bulb in place. now just put the new one in. You will see a small tab on the round part of the bulb, below the glass, align it right in the slot and put the metal clip back on and put the wires back on and backing cap and washer filler cap. P.S do not touch the glass on the new bulb, the grease on your fingers will prematurely burn the bulb out.

    Replace headlight


    Remove coolant overflow bottle and windshield washer bottle neck (by turning neck counterclockwise about 3/4 inch and pulling up on it). That will open up the light bulb area. Nissan has a headlamp campaign, where bulbs get replaced for free to you and in some cases the whole headlamp gets replaced, bacause of the plastic falling apart, where bulb sits. Check with your dealer if the campaign is open on you vehicle. FREE
