1. Remove headlight housing.

  • Open Hood and pull the release lever at the back of the housing. The headlight housing slides in and out of the body in tracks.
  • B.Pull out the headlight housing far enough to disconnect the electric connectors, then slide the housing completely out.

2. Remove the retaining clip to remove the upper (low beam) or lower (high beam) bulb from the holder from the back of the housing unit. Remove the old bulb(s).

3. Do not touch the bulb with your bare hands! Wear clean gloves or hold with a clean paper towel. Fingerprints on the bulb will cause the bulb to burn out or explode!. Insert the new bulb.

4. Replace the retaining clips and insert the housing back into the tracks and into the body. Plug the electric connectors in and insert the housing completely.

5. Reposition the release lever to the original position being careful not to break the plasic lever.

6. Check your lights for operation.
