I was hoping to quickly replace the headlight bulbs on our 2008 Newmar Kountry Star Diesel Pusher (KSDP) 3196 motorhome in a couple of minutes. Figuring out how to remove the bulb became a half-hour endeavor. A little embarrassing looking back on it, but when you cannot see what you are doing it is just a little tricky.
So we sharing here for those that may have a similar headlight on their Newmar or other similar light. There are rumors on the internet that the lights are actually from a Ford Taurus if that helps you understand what you are really dealing with here. Motorhomes seem to really be a lot of standard automotive parts repurposed with custom manufacturing, so get intimidated and take it to the dealer to replace it for you!
The replacement lightbulb is a 9007 series bulb that was very prevalent at our local auto parts store. We always replace both bulbs at the same time, so bought a pair for around $20.
Remove the weather enclosure.
Remove the wiring connector from the bulb.
Rotate the retaining clip deep in the enclosure around the bulb.
