What’s up forum.

My headlight bulb went out and I found this DIY on YouTube and thought I would post it hear cause it is very helpful.

The only items I would add is to use anti seize on the T55 bolts when you put them back in.

Also there is a connector for the parking sensors on the passenger side. I disconnected that instead of taking the six connectors near the sensors.

This is a major PIA for a light bulb but the diy will save hundreds vs the dealer.

Also bulbs are D3S on my 2014 SQ4.

Thanks for sharing my video. Thanks for the feedback. I appreciate it. I found out about one connector after I had already finished the job. LOL. Please checkout my last video. "2014 Maserati Ghibli SQ4 61K miles" https://youtu.be/7N9YMmQeXqg

I’m going to replace my headlight bulbs soon, however I’m not sure which D3S bulbs to buy to replace OEM light color. I’m seeing 4300K 6000K and 8000K. Anyone know which bulbs came out of the factory on 2015 Ghibli SQ4? Thanks!!

OEMs are 4200k, they provide the most light output for that wattage, but 5000k offer the best visibility for the human eye taking into account road markings, signs, and other reflective stuff you find on the road. 6000k and up are just for showing off.
Whatever you chose, replace both headlight bulbs at the same time.

Why change both at the same time, and is that video the only way to do this?
I saw another one where theyguy took the wheel off and wheel well liner and accessed it that way. Seemed much easier but I don't know what year the car was he did it on.
