Our Outback needed a new headlight. Since my daughter will be taking it to college in the fall, this was the opportunity to show her how to do it.

There are a couple of ways to get to the headlight. The official way is to remove the grill and bumper cover, then pop the headlight lens out, then replace the headlight bulb. The other way is to pop the inner fender liner loose, then squeeze your arm through the gap and remove the back cover from the lens. This is the easier way.

After changing the light, we washed both cars. I broke out the pressure washer to soap them up and rinse them after scrubbing them down. We plan to tackle the interior, the trim, and wax them both after it cools off a bit.

I happened to hit the driveway with the power washer and was reminded that it needs to be cleaned too. In the meantime, we thought it could use a little flair.
