Replacing the main beam lamp

Updated 7/23/2018

The main beam lamp in halogen headlamps can be replaced by the driver.

Before the bulb can be replaced, the oval cover of the headlamp must be removed; see the section "Removing the headlamp's oval cover".

Important

Never touch the glass part of the bulbs with your fingers. Grease from your fingers is vaporised by the heat, coating the reflector and then causing damage.

Detach the bulb by turning the bulb holder upward and then pulling straight out.

Carefully prize the plastic cover at the connector's lock lug so that it releases.

Unplug the connector from the bulb.

Replace the bulb.

Fit the bulb in the socket and turn downward. The lamp can only be secured in one position.
