Folks - I have a '94 5251 whose left from headlight just burnt out. I am NOT mechanically skilled, as in - at all. First, I assume this requires replacing a bulb? Is this easy to do, even for those with no tools and no skills? Second, should I replace the right headlight bulb so they're of equal vintage / just to get it over with? Are these bulbs easily found at any major auto parts store? With a car this old (maybe not to this group), do I need to special-order these? Thanks for any advice.

Nope, they are not special order. Also, if you are TRULY mechanically inept then you can maybe ask the guys at Autozone to help you

Autozone has them in stock (they are simply 9006 bulbs): Headlight

Since they are 9006 bulbs, you can also PM member [email protected] (our resident lighting guru) to explore other options
