  4. Disconnect the bulb from the socket assembly and install the replacement bulb.
  5. Reinstall the bulb and socket assembly into the headlamp assembly, and then turn it clockwise.

    CAUTION!

    Do not touch the new bulb with your fingers. Oil contamination will severely shorten bulb life. If the bulb comes in contact with any oily surface, clean the bulb with rubbing alcohol.

  6. Reinstall the access cap making sure it is seated into the housing and turn cap clockwise to engage locking lugs. Visually, you should be unable to see the blue O-ring gasket. The access cap should be uniformly seated and you should not be able to pull the access cap off without turning it counterclockwise.

CAUTION!

If the access cap is not installed correctly after bulb replacement, the lamp becomes susceptible to dust, condensation, and water intrusion. This may ultimately lead to an inoperative lamp. If the access cap cannot be installed correctly, please return to an authorized dealer for proper repair or access cap replacement if necessary.

Front Low/High Beam Headlamp — Models With High Intensity Discharge (HID) Head-lamps

The headlamps are a type of high voltage discharge tube. High voltage can remain in the circuit even with the headlamp switch off and the key removed. Because of this, you should not attempt to service a headlamp bulb yourself. If a headlamp bulb fails, take your vehicle to an authorized dealer for service.

WARNING!

A transient high voltage occurs at the bulb sockets of HID headlamps when the headlamp switch is turned ON. It may cause serious electrical shock or electrocution if not serviced properly. See an authorized dealer for service.

NOTE:

On vehicles equipped with HID headlamps, when the headlamps are turned on, there is a blue hue to the lights. This diminishes and becomes more white after approximately 10 seconds, as the system charges.
