    This does not help. Head light is accessed from front wheel well. Where do I go from there?

Just change the bulb, open the hood you will see the connector to the bulb, most are a twist lock to release the bulb from the head light lens.

Any problems changing 55 low beam/65 high beam to xenon 90 watt low beam/100 watt high beam


Check the size of the cables coming to your headlight. A higher lamp wattage would require more amperes for the wires to carry.

2002 pontiac grand prix gt. High beams are dimmer


A loose ground wire to the headlight will keep it dim,Or a headlight adjustment will bring the headlight up.If you can have your headlight turned on a garage door or something at night,and then watch as you change your headlights from low beam to high beam which ones are higher.the last thing to verify is that your high beam headlights are not the plastic lens type that turn dull which cuts the light power.

Drivers side headlight assy change, Nissan Sentra 2003, Front lens was cracked and old one became opaque instead of mirrorlike(fogged up).Is it hard to change?


Just unscrew the screws holding down the black tabs on top of the headlights and you have to gently pull the headlight out , be careful because the bottom of the headlight has a tab holding it in place (be patient might have to move it around to release the bottom tab). And do the opposite when putting the new headlights on. Even if the bottom tab breaks. the tabs on the top will old the headlight in place. Once it's changed, you'll need to re-aim the headlights...

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

1988 buick century headlights


To change the low beam headlight on the 2001 Lesabre, the headlight assembly must first be removed from the car. It is really quite simple to do. There are two bolts on the top of the assembly that must be removed - that is all! The entire assembly comes out and gives easy access to the low beam bulb. Give it a 1/4 counterclockwise turn to remove it. Plus in the new one (#9006) and reverse the procedure.

Headlights


The same bulb in a lot of applications controls both the high and low beam. Generally the low beam portion will burn out and for a short time you will be able to use the high beam only. I can't be certain which headlight switch that you checked, but the most common solution is to replace the headlight bulb. The bulb is on the inside of the headlight lense and is accessible by opening the hood and peeling back the rubber cover that covers up all of the headlamp apparatus. Depending on the model of vehicle they are mounted in there differently. Make sure and change both at the same time. It is generally cheaper to purchase new headlight bulbs as a (2) pack and it never fails if you change one the other will burn out in a week. Hope this helps
