NOTE: The headlamp bulb should not be removed from the headlamp until just before a replacement bulb is installed. Removing the bulb for an extended period of time may affect headlamp bulb performance. Contaminants may enter the headlamp where they can settle on the lens and reflector.

The vehicle may need to be driven 16 km (10 mi) or more to relearn the strategy. 1. To install, reverse the removal procedure. Adjust the headlamp.
