This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 2nd generation 2008-2012 Honda Fit or Honda Jazz vehicles in replacing any of the bulbs in the headlight assemblies.

Owners of previous generation 2001-2007 Fit or Jazz vehicles, or similar Honda Global Small Car vehicles such as the Airwave, Partner, Mobilio, Freed, Logo, City, and Aria may also find this guide to be useful.

The headlight assembly of a Honda Fit or Jazz contains the following light bulbs with their corresponding part numbers: dual filament low beam & high beam bulb # 9003, turn signal / parking bulb # 7507, and front sidemarker bulb # 194NA.

No tools are needed to replace any of the light bulbs in the headlight assembly of a 2008-2012 Honda Fit or Jazz.
