Changing a headlight

As with most auto headlights, you will access them from within the engine compartment.

There will be a wiring harness that plugs into the back of the lamp. Be careful not to damage the locking clip that holds the wire firmly onto the lamp. Move the harness out of the way and grasp the connector portion of the lamp and twist COUNTERCLOCKWISE to release the lamp from the housing, and plug the bad lamp out.

When installing the new lamp, be sure NOT to touch the glass lamp as the oils from your skin can damage the bulb by creating a 'HOT SPOT'. As a rule of thumb and good auto maintenance you should ALWAYS replace both lamps at the same time. Headlamp bulbs deteriorate over time and will get dimmer as they age. Why get dirty twice when you can do it just one time. Besides most lamps are sold in MATCHED pairs so the intensity will be the same for both the left and right sides of the car.

Hope this answers your question.

Cheers,

Headlight bulb I have a 2008 2500 hd sierra slt Duramax I was looking how to change headlight bulbs.Booklet says to change remove air cleaner and reach in and change them from the back.

Change headlight Hi, I need to change my headlight, and I would like to do it myself. It looks easy enough, but so far no luck. Do I have to remove the entire front light set-up to exchange the low beam only? At that point I might as well change the lens that got run into by an unknown "friend". (I have a feeling that the water that got into it might have contributed to the failing headlight...). I would really appreciate your help. I can't afford another mechanic hour! Thanks, Julie


Julie.... fairly easy to do. the bulbs are changed from inside the engine compartment. you should be able to see the connector going into the back of the bazel (headlight). generally the connect has a ring on it that you have to turn or you may ha ... Subaru GL
