…..and then the light bulb when off!

No really the freaking light bulb when off right on Christmas Eve.

Luckily, I had a spare that I kept from the last time this happened.  I got a great deal on the pair at Auto Parts Warehouse when I ordered them.

Replacing the bulb on the head light is not difficult at all and you should be able to do it with little to no experience.  It’s probably one of the easiest things to do.  No need to adjust the light height or any of that, like on the older cars.  You just access the housing through the back and replace the bulb.  Voila…back in business.

Anyway, I took some pictures to show how to get the pesky bulb out.  It’s the one on the drivers side.  It’s a bit tight to get in there but its doable.  The picture below shows you how to start the process of removing the cap to access the area where the bulb goes.  Replacing the head light is not necessary.  Don’t do what I did the first time and start to unscrew the top of the housing.

Access is behind like you see on the pictures.  It’s pretty self-explanatory.  Remove the dust cover.  Twist the twist the bulb to unlock it (you’ll have to turn it counter clockwise from your position) and pay attention to how the metal shim is placed.  You’ll have to replace it when installing the new bulb.

Put your cover back on and you’re ready to ride.  Hope you had fun working on you car.  I certainly did.
