Subaru is a Japanese automaker known for using boxer engines in its vehicles. TV commercials for Subaru often show the toughness of the brand, sustaining most of the terrain difficulties. As tough as Subaru cars could be, parts such as the headlight eventually need to be replaced. The headlight is located at the front of the car, and with basic repair skills, you will be able to change your headlights without seeking the help of a professional mechanic. I have a 2015 Subaru Crosstrek on garage and let me show you just how to replace the headlight bulbs with H7 led bulb kits.

2, Locate the four clips that connect the top of the car bumper and remove them by turning them counterclockwise with a flathead screwdriver and then pulling them out by hand.

8, Pry the bumper off the chassis starting with the wheels well off, your driver working around the bumper.

10, Locate the five screws that secure the car headlight and unscrew them with the flat-head screwdriver in a counterclockwise direction.
11, Remove the headlight assembly and disconnect the electrical wiring clips manually. Be sure to note where each clip was attached for later installation.
12, Slide the new headlight assembly onto the chassis and reconnect the clips based on your notations made in Step 11.
13, Replace the five screws that secure the headlight to the Subaru car chassis.
14, Hold the bumper and align it with the chassis and molded body of the car. Have your friend insert a screwdriver into two of the clip holes where the bumper attaches to the engine compartment. This will hold to the stop so you can reattach the clips.
15, Replace the 14 clips that start with the wheel wells. Rotate each clip clockwise with the flat-head screwdriver to secure it in place.
