Replacing your Land Rover headlight like a pro

Replacing your Land Rover headlight like a pro

When your Land Rover headlights are faulty, you can replace them yourself simply by following these easy steps.

  1. Ppo the bonnet

Open the bonnet by pulling on the lever by the door opening. Be sure to prop the bonnet securely before you begin changing the headlights. 

  1. Locate the bulb headlight 

Start first with the left hand side of the bulb, it’s a lot easier to take out, and you may not need tools. You do need a torch just to see things clearly. 

  1. Move to the right headlight bulb

Now, the right side of the lights may be a bit more complicated. First remove the air filter housing with a screwdriver. It should not be too difficult. 

At this point, you must be extra careful not to damage any wiring around the filter housing. 

  1. Pull the plastic tab at the rim cover

By pulling the plastic tab on the rim of the cover, you can access the right bulb. It should come off easily.

  1. Detach the bulb cable

The bulb is located in the lamp housing by small plastic clips fitted on either side of the bulb, behind the rectangular aluminum bulb housing. 

Then withdraw the bulb with the cable still attached to it, after which you detach the globe from the old socket and into the new one. 

  1. Secure the new globe

With the cabling connected, the new globe is simply pushed into the lamp housing, making sure it is lined up in the same way the old one was removed. Push the new globe home securely until the retaining clips click into place. Wiggle the new globe gently to make sure it is secure.

  1. Replace the bulb access cover

Now, you’re in the end zone. Replace the bulb access cover and secure it. Ensure there is no dust or water on it, and when it is secure, check the headlights to see how they work, and you’re done! 


While replacing your car headlights when they burnout is highly recommended, what happens when you have working headlights but the beam can’t brighten up the road for proper visibility? In this case, your car headlights might be suffering from oxidation! Oxidation affects only the lenses of your headlight housing so, simply replacing your headlight bulbs won’t solve this except you opt-in for a complete headlight housing replacement which is rather expensive than changing burned bulbs.

However, with a simple application of a restoration wipe, this problem can be a thing of the past. But first, you need to buy a headlight restoration kit and follow this complete guide on how to restore Headlights using headlight restoration kits
