No, you dont need to take out the whole assembly. Here's how to do it:

1. Unclip the plastic protective cup from the back of lamp holder.

2. Pull off the electrical connector.

3. With your fingers, grip the plastic surround that holds the lamp and rotate the entire thing counter-clockwise (if you're standing in front of the car that would be to your right). It will click and rotate about half an inch.

4. Now the bulb will pull easily out of the socket.

Reverse the procedure to replace the bulb.

You have to remove the entire headlamp assembly from the vehicle to access the headlamp bulb. Not too difficult, just 3 or 4 screws I think. Everything is pinned, or keyed, so you don't have to readjust the assembly after replacing the bulb & attaching the headlamp.

You need a 10MM socket. Open the hood, there are two bolts and a bracket that secure the headlamp. You remove the bolts and the headlamp comes out to access the bulbs.

simply remove the two screws located on the top of the headlamp assembly and then pull the headlamp assembly forward to gain access to the light bulbs

Open the hood, remove the pins holding the headlamp assembly, remove headlamp assembly, now you can reach in and remove the day time bulb socket assembly to replace the bulb. Repeat procedure on other side.

The headlamp bulbs on a 1996 Acura TL are installed from the engine bay. Find the housing located in the front of the vehicle. Disconnect the bulbs and replace them with new units.

Open the hood. There are three hex head bolts that hold each headlamp to the van. Remove each bolt and gently pull headlamp out from grill using the small handle-like grip. The headlamp will remain connected to the van with the lightbulb socket. Twist the collar away from the bulb then pull the bulb assembly out of the headlamp. Replace bulbs and reassemble components.

Remove grille, and four screws from headlamp assembly. Pull the headlamp assembly forward to access the bulbs. Twist the bulb and lock ring counter-clockwise, pull out bulb. Don't mix high and low beam bulbs and DON'T touch the new bulbs with bare hands. Use rubbing alcohol to clean bulb and a clean cloth to install new bulb.

No tools required. Raise the hood. On the backside of the core support there will be two plastic strips behind each headlamp assembly. Pull upward on the strips for the affected assembly. When they disengage, pull slightly upward and outward on the assembly. Unplug wiring as desired and replace bulbs or the entire assembly. Headlight bulbs are 9005 and 9006's. To reinstall engage the lower tabs of the assembly in the slots in the core support, then push the two prongs through the square hole. Reinstall the strips and close the hood.

I have a 1999 Forester, but I imagine the 2003 is similar in this regard. You don't actually need to remove the headlamp to replace the bulb. On my car, I unplug the wire from the bulb at the back of the headlamp, remove the large rubber piece around the back of the bulb, unclip the clips that hold the bulb in place, remove and replace. Cheers! Mark This is a good answer and is so just as stated. Thanks Mark! RicT

First open the hood and locate the 5mm studs in front of the headlight you wish to replace. Remove the studs and gently pull out the headlight assembly. Remove the headlight assembly by twisting the connectors counter-clockwise. Remove the old bulbs from the assembly and replace with the new bulbs. Reconnect the assembly by attaching the connectors and twisting clockwise. Reinsert the assembly and and attach with the 5mm studs. Close the hood.

If it's a W210 (round headlamp) check the video on You-Tube.

I assume this question means changing the bulbs... What you'll need:Screwdriver or Pliers - for the rivets holding the plastic cover1/2 inch Socket WrenchFlashlightSmall mirror - Helpful to see how to line up the bulb and socket in the bumper. Remove the black plastic cover over the headlamp assembly. It is held on by a few plastic "rivets." Be careful not to break them (I did). Remove the two 1/2 inch bolts holding the headlamp assembly frame. Lift or slide the headlamp assembly forward. Then, you will have access to the back of the turn signal lamp next to the headlamp and the lamp below in the bumper. The bulb in the bumper is actually on the bottom of the assembly. Both bulbs can be removed with a 1/4 turn.

Remove the gille. Remove the four screws from the headlamp assembly. Pull the headlamp assembly forward to access to the bulbs. Unplug the electrical connector. Twist the bulb and lock ring counterclockwise, and pull the bulb and holder assembly out of the headlamp assembly. Installation is the reverse of removal. IMPORTANT When handling the new bulbs use a new clothe, don't leave skin oils on bulbs. befor u do that look right on top if u see four hex heads sticking up unscrew those then pull assembly out i believe their like 9/32

The headlight assembly (aka the headlight bucket) is removable by releasing the lock tabs behind the assembly. Once the assembly is wiggled out in the open you can easily replace the bulbs.

there is two rods that go through the housing from the top. turn them to unlock and pull up and out then the whole assembly comes out and you can change the bulbs.

Caution Halogen bulbs contain gas under pressure. Handling a bulb improperly could cause it to shatter into flying glass fragments. To help avoid personal injury: Turn off the lamp switch and allow the bulb to cool before changing the bulb. Leave the lamp switch OFF until the bulb change is complete. Always wear eye protection when changing a halogen bulb. Handle the bulb only by its base. Avoid touching the glass. Keep dirt and moisture off the bulb. Properly dispose of the used bulb. Keep halogen bulbs out of the reach of children. Raise the hood. Remove the headlamp assembly bolts from the upper fascia support. Slide the headlamp assembly outward enough to release the headlamp bracket tabs from the slots in the upper fascia support. Position the headlamp assembly away from the vehicle body to access the electrical connector. Disconnect the electrical connector from the headlamp assembly. Remove the headlamp assembly from the vehicle. Disconnect the electrical connector from the headlamp bulb/socket. Remove the headlamp bulb/socket retainer ring from the headlamp, by turning counterclockwise. Remove the headlamp bulb/socket from the headlamp assembly.

detach the bulbs and remove the clips behind the headlight assembly

User Avatar

The bulbs screw in from the rear and if you can't get to the rear, you have to take the light assy off.

Well you can take two approches to changing the headlamp bulbs. First, although it is a tight fit you can pop the hood. remove the black plastic guards(for lack of a better word) you will see what im talking about, and reach your hand in the rear of the head lamp, remove the rubber cover and pull the bulb out and change. Another way is to remove the grille, and trim that fits underneath the headlamp, and remove the whole headlight assembly. it is alot easier to see what you are doing with the headlamp assembly removed
