Ls400 Mk Iii Main Beam Bulb Replacement?

Recommended Posts

I just bought Halfords Super Brilliance bulbs (on offer at 2 for

the price of 1) so I could replace all headlamp bulbs.

After following the replacement 'instructions' in the handbook, and removing

the 'bulb' I expected to be able to remove the bulb from its holder.

I can't! ...... and I can't see how the replacement bulb (H1 '448SB') actually

would fit anyway as it seems a different shape.

Is there a trick to removing the bulb from the holder, or is the bulb holder integral with the bulb itself

and hence a Lexus-only spare rather than a genuine accessory available from Halfords for example?

Hope someone has done this and can help!

I found that the numbers for bulbs in the handbook were very different to some of the bulbs and holders fitted esp brake light bulbs being dual filament but stating singles!

It is maddening having spent out on a large collection of spares to find they are wrong!

I found the answer - the main beam bulbs are integral with their plastic holder - you cannot simply buy a replacement bulb even if Halfords say you can!! They are £11.53 from Lexus (11/2/06) and I believe they are usually held in stock. The dual Main beam/full beam bulbs CAN be replaced by the way
