2007 AURA XR
Default 2007 Aura XR headlight assembly replacement?

My 2007 Aura XR needs a new passager headlight. There's a crack and allowing water to get inside and and starting to get cloudy and turning yellow. Where should I look to get a new one and how would I go about replacing it myself?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I've used eBay to get headlights for my car before, usually able to get really good prices there too. Might be able to find one on Amazon as well.

If you're handy with some basic hand tools with some mechanical inclination then you'll be able to handle up on the replacement of the headlight. Requires taking the bumper off which is the worst part of it but it isn't bad.

There are bolts that hold the bumper to the fender, those are tricky to get to but not terrible.

1/4" drive ratchet, varying set of extensions, 10mm socket, 7mm socket, and Philips screw driver should be all you need tool wise.

And I think you can only get 08,09 headlights so if you look close itís a little different.

What's different about the headlights from the 07 model to the 08,09?

Nothing huge. 07s have a ring (shield?) around bulb. 08 and 09 doesnít.

Dose this shield around the bulb make a difference the way the light is Projected on the road? And would it look different if I have 2 different headlights then?

Default Re: 2007 Aura XR headlight assembly replacement?

The 2007 design has a light reflector (described as a shield) on both high beam and low beam bulbs, where as the 2008-09 has just the light reflector on the low beam. Unless you want to change both headlight assemblies to match, I would suggest trying to find the 2007 design headlight, some vendors still sell them.

I do not believe it would make a huge difference in changing the way the light is put on the road if you got the 2008-09 design headlight.

Thanks for the Information. I think I'll try to find the 2007 headlight. I like the way it looks with both of the shields.
