How to change headlight bulbs.

2 Answers


These are halogen bulbs that you need to access from behind the headlight. In most cases you can reach in, gently twist the bulb loose, and remove it from the socket, then replace it with another bulb and reverse the procedure. Be careful not to touch the glass on the bulbs as this will shorten their lifespan.
