Default FRF Watercooler / BS Thread 2016 (V2.0)

Nissan dealer quoted my mom's cousin $235 to change the headlight bulbs on his son's 350Z. Took me less than 20 minutes to change them. Would have taken less time but it basically sits on the tire.
Proper repair procedure is to remove the bumper cover and headlights. I just went in through the fender liners

Proper procedure usually makes things more difficult.

That's one thing I'm glad ford got right on the Gen 5 explorer: Just open the hood, and reach behind the headlight, pull the bulb out. Total time to change them: under 5 minutes for both.

My truck did something new today. Sitting in stop and go traffic on the highway, stepped on the gas to move...nothing. Engine just randomly shut off. Fired right back up though and was fine all the way home.

It's telling you that it is the Boss and has all the control.

I started my 05 up to go to lunch one day and released the parking brake before I pressed the brake and when it bounced hit the parking pawl it cut off. Started right back up and never did it again.

I understand that. Its my field of work. But $235 to just replace bulbs is ridiculous especially when they know they can just go in through the fender liners.
I guess I'm just not an ******* when it comes to something as simple as a bulb change.

My Gen 4 Explorer, you had to physically remove the headlamp and pull it outwards.

Still not a hard replacement. At least you don't have to remove any panels
