2006 Journey headlights

I have a 2006 Journey and I would like to install new headlights. My question is, does anyone know what headlight is used on the Journey ? I've been told that it is a GM product used on an automobile . Any suggestions ? also , are the lights a sealed unit or does it come apart? Thanks for any help i can get.

When we replaced ours, not for any other reason than at night, I couldn’t even tell if they were on or off, I simply unplugged one, and got the bulb size, then I ordered new low and high LED bulbs from M4. Amazing difference, and they’re plug n play. Took me maybe 20 minutes, including zip tying the leads clean.

Hope this helps...

IDK, a Journey in detail, but I did perform a cursory search on the net, to see which type of rig that was. Looked to be just another class A RV.

Find the bulb type, find the replacement bulb. Should be easy...

journey headlights

Thanks for the advice, If you own a Journey you know that it is impossible to get to the headlights, especially the drivers side. early on , i was at winnabago factory and they removed the front end to work on the lights.

Who ever that was , he was taken advantage of big time ,
Here is a tread on how it's done .
I came in at the end .
Once again it's not a job that everyone can do .
Most of all it depends on the size and agility of who's doing the job. .

I have a 2007 Journey that I had to replace the headlight housing's on and the headlight assemblies are from 96 to 98 Pontiac Grand Am. I purchased my housings from Amazon that were specifically for a Journey for $120 each but after the purchase discovered that they were Pontiac housings and they were available for less than 1/2 the cost
I replaced all bulbs with LED when the new housings went in and I definitely recommend removing the front nose cover as it took about 8 hours for each side and a whole lot of cussing to replace the housings with the front fiberglass in place good luck and don't allow small children to be around while doing the project as they will pick up some new vocabulary

Anyone have some tips on removing the front panel on a 2007 Journey? I would like to upgrade my headlamps too.

I agree the bulbs were tough to get out and back In my 2006 journey. Be careful about buying certain bulbs that are longer than the standard bulbs...
