Car trouble can definitely interfere with our busy schedules—especially if you have to relinquish the entire vehicle to a garage to get fixed! Luckily, you only need a few basic tools and steps to replace your Scion XB headlights.
Here’s what you’ll need to do:
  • First, pop your car’s hood. Make sure your car is parked and off, and the keys aren’t in it before making any fixes
  • Access your car’s headlight assembly. Your car’s owner’s manual should be able to point you in the right direction
  • Once you’ve located the headlight assembly, remove the two 10 mm bolts on top
  • From there, you should be able to lift open the lid to the assembly, revealing a clip and O ring beneath
  • Pull up the clip and the wires, in the direction of your driver’s seat
  • Behind the headlight, you’ll find a hex-headed fastener—you’ll need a hex headed wrench to remove it
  • At this point, you should be able to remove the headlight assembly entirely
Once the old assembly is out, you can install the new headlight assembly in the same way! Reattach the clips, wires, and bolts, and make sure to test your headlights before calling it a day.
