When I bought my cougar the first thing I did was buy new headlight bulbs and foglight bulbs. The foglight bulbs are pilot H3 from autozone. They like to burn out alot. I put APC headlight bulbs on my car and the right bulb burnt out. So I went to a stereo shop and bought some streetglow headlights. They look very nice. But the right headlight bulb burnt out tonight again after a month of use. I made sure I didn't touch the bulb and I cleaned the bulb before I put it on my car. Would my wiring be f'k up or just crappy brands. It is the low beam. This can get expensive. Any suggestions?:confused:

Check your owners manual. Basically, you have to take out the grill, then take the headlights off as a unit. Then you can open the back of the headlight and swap bulbs.

1. Open hood.
2. Remove grille (two bolts)
3. Remove headlight (three bolts - the far bottom bolt -- DO NOT remove it all the way, or it's a PITA to get back in!
4. Pop harnesses off
5. Replace bulb.

(Installation is reverse of Removal)
