I blew out the low beam on the passenger side of my 2011 Outback. I figured I could just lift the hood and replace it like my 1994 Legacy or my 2000 Legacy...WRONG. Access to the light is buried under the frame and I'm sure there is a simple procedure for this fix. Someone please direct me to this post as I have looked and cannot find it. Thank you so much in advance. :-p

If you are referring to the bulb, check the owners manual that hopefully came with the car. My 05 and 08 OBs have such descriptions.

Changing the headlight bulbs on a 4th gen is a nightmare and not simple.

There are a few threads on subaruoutback.org about it, but it is nowhere near a 5 minute job.

The above link has a pdf showing the removal of the fender liner to change the low beam bulb!
Yikes! That's like your dentist working on your teeth through your ear!
One very good suggestion is to have the dealer do it if it is still under 36k mile/3 year warranty.
