Customer Question
The drivers side headlight...

The drivers side headlight has lost the center or middle light - on when driving - on my HID headlight. Can the bulb be replaced? Thank you. Ed

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Have you checked the bulbs?

I think it is a sealed unit but do not know how to access the bulb

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Cadillac?

2012 Cadillac CTS wagon

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your CTS yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing yet as I was told that you cannot replace just a bulb but must replace the whole assembly
