I tried to copy a link from this forum in 2020 that addresses this but it did not work. If you can search headlights on the legacy forum and see several people that changed them. Itís a Chevy Silverado 2008-2012 headlight. You replace the whole housing. Donít get the projector lights that are on it. I used stock lights and they work great. Another owner changed to hd lights. You need to change the housing. No one found any bulbs that made a difference. I posted part numbers in June of 20 but donít know how to repost.

My Legacy is a 2014. Any reason I wouldnít have the same experience - great fit without cutting fiberglass or fabricating brackets? Iíve been looking for a solution for these lights since the first time I had to drive in the dark.

My legacy was titled as a 15 but I purchased it in mid 14. Itís the same as yours. The cut outs fit fine and I did not have to modify. One side was a little tight and it took a pretty hard push for it to pop in. Wiring was plug and play. You can see the extra wires not in the connector that forest river added for the led lights. I cut and caped those as they are not needed. My lights are normal now and driving at night is not a problem.

Ta-Daa!

They are much brighter and aimed very good. Iíll try to follow up after I drive it at night (which I try to avoid lol)

And, if you look closely at the pics, youíll see Iím almost done removing the Diamond Shield from the front.

Thanks Tmartin for sharing the info about these lights!

Veerryy sloowwwllyy. Lol

A lot of Rapid Remover (pic below), plastic razor blades and patience. I pick an area about 2íx2í to work on, spray some of this ďmagic juiceĒ and start scraping a strip about 1/4 to 1/3 the width of razor. Spray more when it doesnít peel smooth. After the film is off, spray more of the magic juice on the glue and then start scraping that off. When itís mostly off, spray a rag with the juice and wipe off the remaining. Then rinse with water and call it a day cause itís getting too hot! That will take about 45 min to an hour to complete.

So far, no problem with paint damage.

Thank you for the quick response! Ordered and on the way. I watched a friend for awhile doing this with a heat gun and figured there must be a better way.

tmartin, I just wanted to thank you for your posts on this and for taking the lead in finding a reasonable and easy fix for this problem. I changed out my lights this week. Very easy change. Like you, I had a little trouble with one, the drivers side, and needed to do just a little filing and an extra effort to get it in the space. That said, the lights are an exact fit with regard to size and installation. They fit right on the same mounting points in exactly the same location. Easier than I thought to get them out and new ones in, one bolt on the top and two screws on the bottom. No modification other than to drill the two holes in the mount for the two screws on the bottom once in place. Plenty of room to work in there from the top and the bottom. The wiring is one plug. It threw me a little until I undid the wire bundle to reveal that the old light had a harness from the plug to the two lights while the new light already has that built in. As you said, I cut the extra wires for the original lightís leds (not present in the new lights) at the point they were both attached so that I just needed to cap one wire in each light. So glad I did this and while I avoid driving at night at least I know I can see now if that is necessary. Thank you for sharing your solution. This is the sort of help we all need! Fresh links to the lights on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00GO...b_b_asin_title

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00GO...b_b_asin_title

Total cost was $265 with tax for both lights with prime delivery in 4 days. (And the price dropped right after i bought mine so closer to $200 right now.) Make sure you pick the first of the two options offered. Not sure what the second one is.

It could be. Look at it really closely and see if the marks are under the film. If so, the only way to fix it is to remove the film.

We rarely ever drive the rv in the dark, but the few times we have to joke is to get out with a flashlight to see if they are really on.

Have you tried replacing the bulbs to a different type of bulb? I have had good luck with the Sylvania SilverStar Ultra and the Xtra Vision are great as well.
the bulbs are;
Low Beam- H11
High Beam/Brights- 9005
the headlamp assemblies are from a 2007-13 Chevrolet 1500/2500/3500
