Halogen Headlight Bulb Replacement

I have a 2007 with 22k miles and my driver's side headlight has gone out. Imagine my surprise when I looked in the manual and discovered that not only do they not tell you how to replace the headlight bulb but that they don't even give you the bulb part number. Instead, they just tell you to call the dealership. After looking on the forum, I now have an idea as to how to get to the bulb by going through the wheel well. Maybe I just havenít performed the right search, but I haven't seen any posting as to the actual OEM replacement part number. Does anyone know the OEM or any equivalent bulb part number for the halogen headlight bulb for a 2007?

Thanks,

Shelton

Re: Halogen Headlight Bulb Replacement

You are still under warranty, have the dealer do it for you.

H11 for the halogen Low beam
H7 for the Halogen high beam (not 9005)
D1S for the HID version low and high beam are the same bulb

OK; so I get a call and the Acadia has a passenger DRL/low beam out. Just checked the Sylvania website and it lists low beams and DRL's with two different numbers..........I am guessing the H-11 is the bulb to go with

Re: Halogen Headlight Bulb Replacement

and the saga continues.....

so my father in law is going to change out the DRL; new H11 bulb in hand. He calls me and asks how to get to the bulb; I sorta chuckle and tell him he has to remove the wheel and lining.........long pause........he says OK.

Fast forward to 5 mins ago; get another call back saying bulb is changed , but wiring is melted

So my Acadia is destined for a dealer visit

Re: Halogen Headlight Bulb Replacement

Has anyone used Hoen bulbs in their Acadia? http://www.hoen-usa.com/index.htm

I have these in my Chevy Colorado, in the fog lights. They have lasted for a REALLY long time. They give off a great pattern, and are very bright white in color. I see they are available in the H11 size. These bulbs have outlasted 2 sets of Silverstars (low beams). In my truck, whenever the low beams are on, so are the fogs. The Hoens seem to be really well engineered.

My concern with using Silverstar is that they don't seem to last long. In the Acadia, the area around the bulb seems very small, and is likely a hotter area than most other applications, which would burn bulbs out even faster.

Thoughts about other brands of bulbs?

UPDATE:

The Acadia was delivered to the Patterson Auto Group in Wichita Falls, TX this evening; they will get to work on it in the morning.
