Default Headlight Bulb Exchange

Hi,

the left headlight of my 94 LT1 is gone. I looked into the manual to see how the bulb is to be changed; they explain how to exchange the headlight as such. Does that mean that I have to buy a new headliht instead of just a bulb??? That canīt be true, can it?

Yes, you 94 uses a Sealed beam. available at any parts store, K-mart, Wal-mart, Try to find one that has a plastic lens, but the glass lens will work just fine.

Wal-Mart has the Sylvania Cool Blue headlights replacements for about $15 each. The regular headlights are less.

Of course you could always upgrade to a Hella system where you replace the bulbs and you can put in better ones. Here's the link. Its the way I'm going in a few weeks. http://store.yahoo.com/corvetteforum/c4helh4headc.html

Have em', love em', will NEVER own a corvette with stock lighting again! (Unless HIDs are in the new ones)

i ended up changing to the hella H-4 xenon blubs and am very glad i did, the whole kit with lenses & bulbs was under $50 and i even picked up matching fog light bulbs. the change is very straight forward and you can almost always find sets forsale on ebay.
