The headlamp is a semi-sealed beam type which uses a replaceable halogen bulb. The bulb can be replaced from the engine compartment side without removing the headlamp body.


  • Disconnect the battery cable.
  • Turn the bulb retaining ring counterclockwise until it is free from the headlamp reflector, and then remove it.
  • Disconnect the harness connector from the back side of the bulb.
  • Remove the headlamp bulb carefully. Do not shake or rotate the bulb when removing it.
  • Install in the reverse order of removal.
