Inspect/Replace There can be slight variations in procedure from one model to another when replacing headlights. For instance, on some models the turn signal light assembly must be removed before the headlight can be replaced. Overall, however, the procedure does not differ much from the following typical instructions.
Make sure the replacement bulb is the same type and part number as the one that is being replaced.

I need to replace the drivers side low beam on my 2008 subaru tribeca


The High and low beams are all in the same bulb. You have to reach in behind the light in the engine compartment and undo the retaining collar and pull it out and then pull the bulb assembly out if it separates from the collar. Unplug the bulb and replace it. I usually stop at Walmart and use the little box they have there to find the proper bulb for the vehicle, in most cases they are the less costly of the places you can get the bulbs.

How do I adjust the low beam headlght on a 2006 Sabaru Tribecca B9


I have a similar problem. The adjustment screw adjusts both the high and lof beams. After changing the passenger side low beam, both sides then pointed at the ground. High beams were fine. I adjusted so the low beams are fine but now the high beams point straight up.

In talking with Subaru Service he said there is a "module". He said after changing the bulbs they should point down then auto-adjust back up. That didn't happen. I haven't found anything on such a module. He said it woul be $109 for adjusting the lights OR for the module.

If I find anything more I'll let you know.

Low beams on my Tribeca 2008 burned out frequently (4 times in 5 months). Once both at the same time! Thanks!


replace them again and install with gloves on. Oils in your hands destroys these bulbs prematurely

I have both of my low beam lights out, could you please let me know what the procedure is to replace them?


wait one second, both low beam lights went out at the same time? If so, sounds like something else is wrong, and I'ld suppect the hi/low beam switch. If the car is this new there should be a warranty on it to be replaced.

How do I change a low beam headlight on an 08 Subaru Tribeca?


We have an 05 Legacy and I've done this. Tribeca should be the same way: Look through the engine bay behind the light, you can locate the position by following the wires which actually connect to the bulb assembly. The bulb assembly ought to be removable with a 1/4-1/2 turn and pull motion. Be sure to not touch the replacement bulb with your bare hands. Your Subaru service ought to help you with this and not charge you......

Subaru Tribeca Headlights


The usual reason it would seem the length of use would be shortened is that most Subaru owners leave there lights on every where they go day and night. Really does shorten the time in days but not really the time of being on. Just a thought. Happy trails.

Sounds like the low beam bulbs are burned out, I have heard of a lot of over seas Tribecas having head and tail light problems. I would definitely check those bulbs, that will the cheapest start.
