This DIY works on 93 - 97 Camaros & Firebirds and 82 - 91 Camaros & Firebirds.

1. Remove the sealed-beam headlights from the vehicle. Here is the headlight assembly:


2. Put the headlight in the oven at 150F for 10 minutes to loosen the black rubber around the bulb & light. This will not harm the headlight!

3. Take a Xacto knife and cut around the rubber in a circle around the light. The bulb is easily removed.


4. Cut out all the rubber material from the hole where the bulb goes in:


6. Get yourself a good set of XEON 8000k 9006 bulbs! These cost me $12.95 on Ebay:


7. Put the bulb in the hole and seal it with electrical tape, or heat shrink-wrap. The nice thing is it fits very snug when you put the light back in the Camaro so it won't move! Voila! Now you just have to replace the 9006 bulb when they blow, which is alot cheaper than buying the sealed-beams for $50.00 a side! Not to mention, the sealed-beam lights aren't very bright either.

8. Now they are ready to go back into the car!

Where Did You Hear Of Abob visited me in a dream and told me about it.
Good work! That information also is true for my year as well. Any UK owners on here can buy the bulbs from Halfords - I believe (but don't quote me) they are an H4 type bulb.....
