H13/9008 bulb change

Wed Mar 14, 2018 8:08 am

Hey all,

Recently purchased a 2015 Leaf SV and I need to replace the R/H headlight bulb which is the dual high/low beam, any tips or tricks to avoid mangling/busting anything.

Thanks for the replies.

I replaced my H13's with LED versions back in December and it is not hard to get to either bulb. There is a twist off cover on the back, the connector, and normal mounting hardware.
2015 SV no QC

Thanks, is the cover threaded or a friction fit?

Thanks, 1/4 turn did the trick, must of been first bulb change, there was a slight pop and the backing came off, bulb was a little sticky coming out but turned out good, thanks again.

Do changing to LEDs give any amount of extra range at all?

Just curious. =>

I considered adding led head lights also. However, you really do not save any significant power AND the bright leds blink other drivers....

I really hate this fad to get the brightest bulbs in the world.... Most of us in cities only need headlights to be seen by other drivers, and the halogens (which were once cutting edge technology themselves) are plenty bright. vvvvv
