Low beam headlights for 95 camaro?

Like stated in the title I need new head lights. I started my car at 3am and flipped the lights on, heard a static sound and my front left light blew out.


Im looking to get a new light but was curious if the light bulb itself only needs to be replaced or if I need a new housing for the bulb too?

If anyone has any recommendations for a good set of lights feel free to say

Thanks

It is a sealed beam light like the old days (and expensive).

Re: Low beam headlights for 95 camaro?

As Shoebox said it is a sealed beam bulb...however it is possible to replace just the bulb. I did this to '95 Z28 and upgraded my bulbs to Sylvania Ultra Star for the brighter beam. You will need to carefully remove the old bulb from the sealed beam. Then I installed a new bulb and RTV'd it on. It's been going several years now with no problems. I think the low beam bulb is a 9006. Just check to make sure the wiring socket has the same configuration. This should be done in pairs so your headlights will match. I waited until two of my lights went out and then I made the change.

Hey when you say you RTV it ?? What that mean I heard you use like a black high temp silicone ??

RTV is silicone adhesive/sealant/gasket maker.

Re: Low beam headlights for 95 camaro?

My use of RTV was in a general context. There are several options of silicon based sealants falling under the RTV umbrella. I don't remember the specific one I used.
