I need to replace my low beam on my 1984 Subaru GL wagon

Asked by Jan 18, 2016 at 11:19 PM about the 1984 Subaru GL Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I need to do this soon to avoid getting stuck with a fix it ticket I can't afford
to pay. I can't afford a mechanic either, and it seems like something I
should be able to do myself. How do I remove the old one to install a new
one? It appears to be old school where the entire fixture is the lamp itself,
so it's not a matter of replacing a simple light bulb like in my later model
cars. Need answer in a hurry! Thank you!

Old school head lamps were held in with a chrome ring and several screws. Take a close look at the headlight and you should see the screws.


A lot of parts stores in my area will put in a headlight for free if you buy one from them. Maybe call around.


start with the screws you can see- then go to the screws you couldn't see but you can see now- ABC- easy as 123- simple as do re mi-


jam, I too had an old 124 in Boston in the mid 70s! Nice memories.
