Prius Headlight replacement

#1

Is it possible for me to replace the HID headlights myself? Pretty tight area to work in, what has to come off to change them?


#2

Doesn’t the Owner’s Manual contain a graphic showing how to change the headlights?


#3

My Pacifica has HID headlights, and the owner’s manual states that bulb replacement should be done by the dealer, with no instructions for DIY given.

I do not know if you mean the bulb or the assembly, but most likely you will need a dealer to do this. On Saabs the dealer must program the lamp to the vehicle by getting into the on board computer.

I believe that true OE HID’s are a little difficult to get things back into fully working order to assure they don’t blind oncoming drivers. I suspect that and other reasons why HID’s are no longer all that popular.
