Tips to Install Honda Element With Led Headlight Bulb

Honda Element

The headlight bulb in the Honda Element is a small halogen capsule retained inside the headlight assembly. The small glass bulbs are brighter and more durable than the old sealed beam units. However, they use an internal gas and must hand with care. Alkaline and oil on human skin can remove the protective layer of the glass bulb and create a heat point. This result will jeopardize the longevity of the bulb or make it useless from the beginning, so it can install a led bulb to instead.

The Steps

  1. Open the hood of the Honda Element.
  2. Turn off the lights and determine which bulb needs to replace. Turn off the headlight off and then remove the keys from the contact. Make sure the headlight switch does not turn on during the replacement procedure.
  3. Remove the air intake chamber on the driver’s side only if replacing that side. Use a screwdriver to disconnect the plastic clip and then move the camera out of the assembly. If you are going to change the passenger side bulb, then continue with step 4.
  4. Locate the wire harness connected to the bulb socket. Pull the harness from the socket to disconnect it.
  5. Pull the protective rubber sleeve from the back of the headlight assembly. Note that the two pull tabs are on the top and bottom of the boot and that the two drain holes in the boot placed on the bottom.
  6. Press the bulb retaining clip inward slightly, and then slightly lift to unhook it from the retaining latch. Swing the clip outwards and away from the bulb.
  7. Take out the focus passed from the back of the headlight assembly and discard.
  8. Put on latex gloves before handling the new bulb.
  9. Insert the 9006 bulb into the back of the headlight assembly. The three-prong plug of the bulb will only fit in one position. The only tooth should be at the top, while the other two tips will be at the bottom.
  10. Swing the retaining clip back over the rear side of the bulb and reconnect it in the retaining latch.
  11. Replace the protective case, making sure it installed correctly. The drain holes should be at the bottom with one tab and another tab at the top of the boot.
  12. Connect the wiring harness plug to the new bulb socket and then test the headlight to make sure it works properly.

The benefit of LEDs

In the early factory models, they were incandescent. It is an upgrade version of your light bulb in your home. It is rare to find them, except on the classic cars. The LED bulbs are opposed to halogen bulbs. Halogen bulb release lots of energy to convert heat. But the LED bulbs require less fuel to power them, this helps to enhance the car’s performance.

And there are some ways to improve the vehicle’s performance with LED headlights. LED bulbs won’t produce heat as a byproduct of their use. They are efficient for the lighting, all the energy is used to produce the actually generating light.
