Replacing Headlights on a 2003 Acura TL

Replacing the headlights is actually kinda tough. I found great instructions with pictures here, then made a post about the difference between my car and the type-s. I believe the change is also due to the fact some people remove the part that’s in my way completely for better engine sound.

These instructions are for replacing the lowbeam xenon HID headlights, not the highbeam/daytime halogen lights.

’03 Acura TL Xenon Headlights, Keyless Entry – DIY FOOL!

  • I spent $150 for keyless entry when you can buy them online with instructions for only $35 USD.
  • I was offered $200 to replace each Xenon HID headlight and passed. Lucky I did because I found a pair of Philips lights online for $88 USD.
  • Probably a whole number of other things that are way over priced, yet easy to do it yourself.

Look it up before getting stuff from the dealer. This is obvious for some people, of course… but it might help others.
