Each bulb is individual. No need to replace the assembly.

How do I replace the headlight assembly MN133516


The 2003 Outlander utilizes replaceable (9007) headlight bulbs. If you're looking to replace the bulb(s);
1. Raise the hood.
2. Remove the plastic cover at the rear of the headlamp assembly by rotating it counterclockwise, and pulling it off. This will allow access to the headlight bulb.
3. Twist the bulb socket counterclockwise in order to remove it from the headlamp assembly. Pull the old bulb out of the socket, and use a clean cloth to install the replacement bulb. Do not touch the glass of the new bulb.
4. Place the socket back into the assembly, and twist it clockwise. Reattach the plastic cover, and close the hood.
Are you needing DIY instructions for replacing the entire headlamp assembly? Left (driver) or Right (passenger)?

How do I change a headlight in a 2003 Dodge Durango


I assume you're referring to the bulbs and not the entire assembly:

First, you have to remove the turn signal assembly. For this, you need a small star shaped screwdriver and remove the 1 screw holding the turn signal in place. Pull straight out and remove the bulbs from the signal assembly by turning the sockets about 1/4 turn. Set that aside.
Second, there's 3 bolts that will be holding the headlight assembly in place. One is accessable from the engine compartment with the hood up. The other two are located under the headlight. (All of them face the front of the car). Remove all three and the headlight will be able to swing out, giving you access to the sockets and bulbs. Remove the bulb connector from the bulb first, then twist the bulb retaining ring and pull the bulb straight out after the ring is off.
Reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.

If you're looking to completely remove the entire headlight assembly, it's the same process, but the piece that lets the headlight swing out (instead of coming off completely) must be removed. It's a simple plastic ball and socket swivel. Just tug hard and the ball will come loose from the socket.

Changing the headlight bulb in 2003 dodge grand caravan


1) open the hood.
2) Carefully remove the three screws holding the headlight assembly in place.
3) Carefully slide the headlight assembly out. At this point you can replace the headlight bulb, turn signal bulb, or the entire headlight assembly. To replace the headlight bulb turn the collar holding the bulb in counter clockwise. Pull the bulb out of the headlight assembly. Replace the bulb. Insert the bulb into the headlight assembly insert the collar and turn clockwise until it locks. (Do not touchglass with your fingers or it will cause the bulbs to catastrophically fail - clean with alcohol pad if you touch the glass)
4) Carefully insert the headlight assembly back into place.
5) Replace the three screws removed in step 2 being careful not to over tighten.

How to replace 1998 Ford Contour headlights (with diagram)


Step 1
Remove your Contour's front grille. You can do this by raising the hood and removing two screws that are located on top of the grille.

Step 2 Remove the headlight assembly. The headlight assembly is held into the front of your Contour by three screws. Two screws will be located on top of the assembly, and one on the bottom.

Step 3 Replace the headlight assembly, if necessary. If you are only changing individual bulbs, make sure you replace the correct bulbs. Each assembly holds three light bulbs, including the bright, dim and turn signal bulbs.

Step4 Replace the headlight assembly and reattach the three screws to hold it in place.

Step5 Replace the front grille of your Contour and the two screws that hold it onto the front of the car.


  • It is usually a good idea to replace bulbs together (in pairs). This will allow the bulbs to wear at the same rate.
  • If you choose to replace only the individual light bulbs, do not touch the new light bulbs. The contact of your skin on the bulbs will cause the light bulbs to burn out much sooner.

Let me know if you have any further questions.
