The Subaru Legacy is a mid-size car that was first introduced by Fuji Heavy Industries, a Japanese manufacturer of aircraft engines and cars, in 1989. The first generation model had only one body type: a 4-door sedan with front engine and symmetrical all wheel drive. It then evolved into several distinct models before being discontinued altogether in the late 1990s. In 1997, it was reborn as an entirely new vehicle, this time as a 5-door wagon with different body styles such as the Outback. In no time at all, it became Subaru’s best seller to date, leading to further evolutions from model year 2000 onwards which have improved performance without sacrificing fuel economy or safety standards.

Legacy headlights:

In accordance with the development of new body styles, Subaru had to come up with a unique headlight design which would fit each type. There are specific Legacy bulbs for the base model and also important differences in terms of dimensions or electrical connections when comparing US and Japanese models. A popular upgrade for this vehicle is a set of custom projector headlights designed in a way that enhances night driving visibility while improving overall look. This guide will provide detailed information about changing Legacy HID bulbs as well as replacing any defective part (parking lights, side marker lights, etc). It only takes less than an hour to complete even if you have no prior experience at all.

Changing Subaru Legacy headlights is a simple process with even simpler tools. However, there are some major things to look out for before you begin. First, make sure your car’s engine is off and cool down for 15 minutes or more after running the engine. You can do this by putting the car in park and letting it idle. Then, you need to assemble all the parts that will be required for this project. For safety purposes, wear safety glasses or goggles whenever you are working with any type of automotive work. Also be sure that your shop floor is clear of anything that may obstruct free movement around your workspace area.

Tools needed:

– Flat screwdriver;

– Ratchet set;

– New bulb;

– Wire cutter and crimping tool set.

Replacing the low beams: Open the hood and use a ratchet to remove both screws holding up each side of the headlight assembly (T10 torx for base model, T25 torx for Outback). Remove the fender liner if it’s blocking access to one of the bolts. Slide out both bulbs from their place and disconnect them by twisting counter clockwise. Their electrical connector is then pulled straight off using steady force. Once all these steps are completed, you can proceed to installing new parts and reversing this procedure (see below) in order to put the lights back in position. Replacing high beams: This process is similar to replacing low beam bulbs but requires more tools to complete. Start by removing both headlight assemblies in the same manner (see above). Pull out the plastic cover guarding high beams and use a flat screwdriver to pry off its clips.

You’ll find two bolts holding up each assembly in the US model, while Japanese models only have one bolt on top since their headlights are mounted closer to each other. Disconnect low beam bulbs when you’re done (see below). Replacing DRLs: To be able to replace these parts, you need to remove two screws located underneath your Legacy’s hood (T25 torx for Outback) then pop open the fender liner of your car with a flat screwdriver or a trim stick if it has been installed already. From there, you can access a connector which attaches to the DRL.

Unplug it and pull out both bulbs, twisting them counter clockwise in order to separate them from their socket. Note: It is always a good idea not to touch or blow into new replacement parts as some residue may still be on your hands and this could damage the electrical contacts of those components. Replacing parking lights: Disconnect negative (-) cable from battery first before working on these lights. If they’re not already removed, remove two screws located underneath the front bumper then unplug yellow and white connectors holding parking / cornering lamps up (see photo).

Pull both bulbs straight out and disconnect them by turning counter clockwise. Reverse this whole procedure to reinstall parking/cornering lights. Replacing side marker lights: In order to access these parts, you need to pop open the front fender panel with a flat screwdriver or trim stick as it sometimes is attached by clips on US models. Disconnect those two connectors from those lights then pull both of them out carefully. Twist bulbs counter clockwise and install new ones when done. To reinstall the fender liner, place it back in place and push down on its upper part so it snaps correctly into position (see photo).

Replacing license plate lights: If your Legacy’s taillights are already removed for some reason, simply unplug silver connector located underneath each assembly and turn screws holding up license plate light counter clockwise just enough to pull out bulb. If taillights remain in place, remove those screws as you would do on any other car. Twist both bulbs counter clockwise and install new ones when done. Reverse the whole procedure to reinstall license plate lights.
