2007 AURA XR
Default Headlight replacement / front bumper removal pictures!

So I just finished uploading the photos I took while pulling off the front bumper and replacing my low beam bulbs.

All you need is a 7mm and a 10mm wrench (sockets preferred). A good clip puller and a small flathead screwdriver are also helpful.

I left the wheels on and the car on the ground (just cranked the wheel lock-to-lock as needed for access), but jacking the car up and pulling the wheels off can buy you more room to work if you prefer.

I definitely recommend doing both sides at the same time, since it is a hassle. If it's your first time, I'd plan on 2-3 hours to do the whole job.

Here's the link to my nearly-step-by-step photo album:

Is that common on the Auras to have to remove the front bumper just to change the head light bulb?

I removed the bumper when I did the headlights on my wife's Aura. Pretty easy even though it looks like you took the whole front end off. I bought a tool from the local parts shop that helps to remove the plastic rivet nuts. Came in very handy.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
