I have a 2009 euro Outback (fourth gen) which has the factory HID lamp units including lamp washing installation. In the manual it states that the HID bulbs must be replaced by the dealer. Currently, my both bulbs are fine but I know eventually they will fail. I know the type and where to order a replacement bulb on internet. Now should I follow the manual or are they easy to replace like an H4 bulb. (it states Danger High voltage everywhere).

Additionally, how do I change the marker bulbs (T10/ W5W bulbs), since I can not access them with the lamp unit in the car.


So basically:

How do I get the lamp unit from the car?

Is it really that dangerous replacing HID light bulbs? Suppose I disconnect the battery.
