124945Changing Headlight Bulb
- Jul 14, 2014The passenger-side bulb has burned out several weeks
ago. One instruction on the internet states that tools
are not needed. Reach behind the headlight. Grip the
green rectangle box bulb fixture. Twist counterclockwise
(to driver's side) a quarter of a turn (90 degrees?). Pull
out fixture. Press release tab. Insert new bulb into fixtures.
Insert fixture into headlight and turn until it snaps into place.
The area is very cramped. I barely can fit my small but fat

the very top layer of skin in a couple of places. The fix-

The owner's manual instructions shows the unscrewing
of a bolt or screw of a vapor hose(?) and moving hose
out of the way. Also it shows removing a hose clip attached
to an auxiliary water bottle from the radiator . Moving both
the hoses does not appear to produce any mote room
in the area. Moving hoses may move a couple of dirty
parts from a clean new
I may try a sixth time with a latex glove on my hand.
See if the glove gives me a better grip and protection.
