Bulb or Bad Lamp?

People,
Pass side headlight is extremely dim. Sheesh, only 6 years old and light is bad. Anyway, should I need an entire headlight fixture or are the bulbs inside replaceble?

Thanks!

6 years is good, I'm lucky to get 2 years. Yeah bulbs are replaceable by 9007. Buy a set other one can't be far behind.

Thanks, Coby. Wow, just 2 years?? Man, we have lowered the bar even lower. At least we dont have to but the entire fixture, right?? Will buy some 9007 bulbs.....

But, do I need the pricier ULTRA 9007 ($27.00) or the "high performance halogen" for $20? shown here:

You have to remove the headlamp assembly to change the bulbs. Two 10mm screws hold it in place, I remove the top bumper push clips to make it easier to slide the assembly forward.

If you were happy with the lighting before just go with regular 9007 halogen, and if you want to go fancy don't buy colour temperature over 5800K, you don't get the light output of lower K
