The Infiniti G35 is a hit sports sedan from the Japanese luxury brand. It enjoyed warm reception for its stylish design and powerful performance built to be on par with the popular coupes during its time. Making this model even better are the user-friendly steps in installing or replacing certain parts and components. Replacing the headlight on your Infiniti G35, for instance, is easy to do, even with basic DIY skills only. Here are the instructions on how to remove a faulty headlight bulb and to install a new one on your Infiniti coupe.
The headlight assembly is well situated inside the car\'s body frame; that is why removing the front bumper cover is required. This process is easy to do and will only require a 10mm socket, a Philips screwdriver, and a flathead screwdriver. On an Infiniti G35, the plastic retaining clips inside the wheel well on both sides must be removed. This will allow the fender line to be retracted and to gain access to the 10mm bolts that lock the fender and bumper cover together.
Since the entire front bumper cover will be removed, it is essential to ensure that these steps are performed on both sides. With this, the wiring harness of the marker lights are next on the list. Disconnecting these are needed, as well as removing the plastic retaining clips connected to the radiator cover. Once all these are removed or loosened, the front bumper cover can finally be taken off the coupe. Make sure to remove the 10mm bolts on the bumper cover, too.
Although gaining access to the headlight assembly is only possible once all the previous steps were done, the actual removal of the headlight cannot be any easier. Disconnecting the wiring harness is needed, then removing the screws is a must if you are also replacing the headlight assembly. Keep in mind that you have the option to buy a new headlight assembly that already comes with a bulb. If this is the product you purchased, then it is necessary to remove the assembly.
If you are only replacing the bulb on your headlight assembly, then you can simply twist the bulb to loosen it and completely remove it from the assembly. Keep in mind that there is absolutely no need to perform the above steps if there are no plans to change the headlight assembly with a replacement part that comes with the new bulb already installed.
Once the headlight assembly or the new bulb has been properly installed, reattaching all the components removed during the beginning of the replacement process is the next step. It is necessary to work your way through the most recent step to the first and that no bolts or wiring harness are left disconnected or loose. Reattaching the front bumper cover will more or less seal the deal, but only if the 10mm bolts and the plastic retaining clips are properly secured in place.
