Default How-To: Change the headlight bulb on a '02 ES300

Hey ES300 guys,

The majority of ES300 owners probably already know how to replace the headlight bulbs on their car, but for those who are rather new to mechanical jobs then this write-up should help you out

**Parts and Tools**
clean gloves
Replacement headlight bulb
Small wrench

**Reference Material**

Open the hood of the car and remove the plastic panel that protects the headlight assembly from water and dirt. Then unfasten the bolts that hold the headlight assembly to the car body, using a small wrench.

Pull out the plastic bulb socket from the main assembly: Just give the screwdriver a quarter turn to the left and you can pull the socket away from the main assembly.

Pull out the old bulb and replace it with the new one. Wear gloves; if oil from your fingers gets on the bulb it will fail prematurely. Just put the bulb into the socket assembly and make sure it is securely in place. Then introduce the bulb socket set into the main assembly and lock it in.

Follow the Step 1 instructions in reverse to put everything back in its place.
