What light bulbs are used in Imprezas?
I have a 2001 RS. I purchased a set of bulbs online, recieved them yesterday. They are 9007's, and the connector looks different. I plan on putting them in today (along with my sway bar - woohoo). However, I am strating to think that they shipped wrong bulbs. Do you know what kind of bulbs are used on 2001 Imprezas? Were they changed for the 2002 year? I might need some extra info when getting back with the seller to get them returned... thanks!!

I don't know about the 2002+ cars, but the 1993-2001 Impreza uses H4 headlights (9003) and H3 foglights.

Changing the bulbs is very easy to do. From the back of the light, unplug the connector. Then, undo the rubber gasket-type thing that sort of "snaps" onto the housing itself. Then undo the metal clip that holds the bulb in by pushing on both sides of it and let it swing down. Pull out the bulb. Putting the new onein is all just the reverse. You may want to use some bulb grease though so that it won't be hard to get the connector off next time. Oh, and don't touch the glass part of the bulb!

Changing the bulbs is much easier than explaining how. I'm sure once you look at it, you'll figure it out right away. It's also in the owner's manual, which might give you a slightly better description.

Here's a pic for reference: disregard the red circle
