I need help changing my headlamp bulb

I have a 2001 Hondra CRV SE and the driver's side headlamp bulb is blown. I bought the new bulb, unplugged the old one and removed the black retainer ring, but I can seem to pull the bulb out. There is a wire thing that seem to be holding the bulb in place. Am I supposed to remove that screw from the wire thing?

Dont remove the screw. the wire can be unhooked by pushing on it at the other end and moving it up or down a little. or take it to a shop. dont touch the bulb with your fingers.

2005 chevy equinox headlights went out, only the driver side bright light works. Does this mean the passenger side headlamp is blown?

Sounds like you are right change each need to remove the chrome grill from the front sure to pry up the clips carefully so not to break the trim bar...then each headlight assembly is removable with 3 10 mm not touch your exposed fingers on the new bulbs...yes the low/high bulb is one unit...that is why I believe it is just your bulbs...about $11. each...Hope this helps.

Usually when the turnsignal blinks rapid this is a indicator that the turn signal bulbs is blown, you will need to check both the front and rear signal to see which is not working, and then change the blown bulb or bulbs.

Open the hood and directly behind the headlamp assembly there are 2 plastic sometime metal tabs that you need to pull up on.This releases the headlamp assembly.Then pull out on the headlamp assembly and replace the bulb.Check and make sure it works before you put it back together.Good luck.

How to change my headlights on Honda 2005 CRV

easy cheesy! Ive changed mine twice. The headlights are small bulbs. Make sure you get the right one (hi-beam vs low-beam). Unplug connector at back of bulb / headlamp unit, remove rubber weather seal (pops right ot). The bulb is held in with a small wire clip that is hard to get back on but can be done. Its spring loaded. Drop wire clip, turn bulb assya 1/4 turn, and it comes right out. Remove bulb from holder and replace. Reverse steps and VOILA!

How to change front right headlight bulb (left side when facing car)

Unplug the connector running to the back of the headlamp bulb. Remove the rubber ring that is on the back of the headlamp. It just pulls off. After the rubber is removed, you will see the clip to release the bulb.

If your talking about the headlamp, open your hood, look right behind the headlamp and you will see either two or three black funny looking nuts (I think they call them "wing nuts") turn them off while holding on the headlamp, then pull headlamp out slowly, unplug the headlight bulb, grab the back of the headlight bulb, turn and pull it out. (Put a plastic bag, like a sandwich bag over your hand). DO NOT touch the headlight bulb with your hands or you will burn out the bulb. These are very sensitive bulbs and DO NOT like the oils from your skin. Set it down somewhere very safe so it will not roll or touch anything greasy or oily. Next, unplug the parking light, turn and pull out. Replacement is reversal. Hope this helped!
