The lamp itself or just the bulb?
Ask Your Own Buick Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago

Don't really see a difference but it's the bulbs I need to replace. I have already been under the hood and was able to get to the high beam on the right (passenger) side of the car with some difficulty. Could not even get to the bulbs on the left side of the car. I spoke with someone about this problem and they suggested that I approach from inside of the wheel well. What do you suggest I do?

Regards,

John Barea

Don't need to change the corning lamps. They seem to be okay.
Buick Mechanic: BigBlock434, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
It matters when changing the light bulbs. That is why I am asking you.
