Default Headlight bulb replacement

I put a set of black halogen lights in my son's 2000 in the spring. They came as an entire assembly. The driver's side low beam headlight has burned out already. Do I need to replace the whole assembly or can you just replace the bulb itself in these things?

The bulb should be replaceable, it's finding someone who has the bulb and holder only that will be the fun part of the mission.

Should just be a 9006 for the low beam.

Actually these took a H1 12v55w bulb. Got it swapped out. I am now working on hooking up the halos. I got one side done but lacked all the connections to do the other side. No parts stores open on Christmas.

Merry Christmas I have a 2000 Z28 and just wondered if your sons car has been dyno'd if so what results did he get I was thinking of doing long tubes if they are worth it?

Don't even question it. Long tubes are ALWAYS worth it. Not just for the power, but for the sound

No it's never been on a dyno. The car did 108 on the quarter mile though. not sure shat the equates to in horsepower? It had headers on it when we got it so I don't have a before and after.

I was just wondering what the hp was on his sons car. I custom made a set of stainless cat replacement pipes for mine and the sound is great with my Maganaflow exhaust. Im running a stock LS1 with just a SLP lid and SLP y-pipe with 139,000 miles we got 321hp and 334tq. Needed to compare to another stock 98-2000 car to see how good that is. Any info would be great as I didnt get a baseline before the light modifications I made.

Ah, well that is not stock replacement but glad you got it figured out and partially wired up.

When all else fails, take the existing bulb out and get the numbers off of it. BTW finished up the other light today. I found a really good YouTube video on how to wire it. Wiring isn't my strong suit.
