I believe it's in the owner's manual, at least it was for my previous 2004 Impreza. And it was a real pain, you have to first remove the grille, and then pull out the entire fixture. If you have to go thru that, I would recommend relamping the entire fixture so you don't have to go thru that again in another month.

Amazing! And it is so simple in the 1999 OBW!

My 04 Outback requires removing nothing. Unscrewing the cover accesses all bulbbs

My experience is that the standard deviation of bulb life is pretty small. Once one fails, the other is not far behind--as hinted at earlier. Therefore, it is always smart to buy the two pack of bulbs since the packge deal is significantly cheaper than buying two individually. I did that a few times before I realized how foolish it was.
I replaced a bulb on an 02 OBW in about two minutes and it required no major surgery. Did they change things, or is someone confused? I'd second the suggestion of checking the owners manual.

Not to be a wise-acre, but have you actually looked under the hood? Most cars, the bulb simply unplugs from the back, although ti change the directionals on my Audi A4, I do have to remove the headlight unit from the front of the car to get the clearance to do so. And the owner's manual will probably tell you what sort of bulb you need.
