HEADLIGHT BULB REMOVAL/INSTALLATION

1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
2. Disconnect the connector.

CAUTION:

  • A halogen bulb generates extremely high heat when it is illuminated. If the surface of the bulb is soiled, excessive heat will build up and the life of the bulb will be shortened. When replacing the bulb, hold the metal flange, not the glass.

3. Remove the cover.
4. Remove the socket, then remove the headlight bulb.
5. Install in the reverse order of removal.

Discharge type

WARNING:

  • Incorrect servicing of the discharge headlights could result in electrical shock. Before servicing the discharge headlights, always refer to the discharge headlight service warnings. (See DISCHARGE HEADLIGHT SERVICE WARNINGS.)

1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
2. Remove the front bumper. (See FRONT BUMPER REMOVAL/INSTALLATION.)
3. Remove the front combination light. (See FRONT COMBINATION LIGHT REMOVAL/INSTALLATION.)
4. Remove the cover.

CAUTION:

  • The bulb generates extremely high heat when it is illuminated. If the surface of the bulb is soiled, excessive heat will build up and the life of the bulb will be shortened. When replacing the bulb, hold the metal flange, not the glass.

5. Remove the connector, then remove the discharge headlight bulb.
6. Install in the reverse order of removal.
