How How do i change the headlight bulb on the drivers side of my 2007 Hyundai Entourage?


You have to take the black plastic top off under the hood on the front.....than you take the whole headlight out, I believe it's only two bolts...there is opening for each light and they are pretty simple to change.

How do i change the driver side headlight bulb on a 2000 Lexus ES300


  • Open the hood of the ES300 and prop it open.

    Look at the headlight assembly from the top down. Depending on your model year, there may be a plastic panel covering the top of the headlight assembly. If this is present, remove it by lifting all of the plastic clips around the edges and lifting it off.

    Locate the three bolts that hold the headlight assembly in place. Two of the bolts are in the left and right rear corners of the assembly, and the third is on the side bordering the outside edge of the car, screwed into the back of the fender panel. Remove all of these bolts with a small adjustable wrench. Though they appear to be designed to be removed with a screwdriver, the way they're arranged makes it almost impossible to remove them with one.

  • 4

    Slide the entire headlight assembly forward a few inches so that you can reach the back of it.

  • 5

    Unscrew the plastic bulb socket assembly. This is the large, round component located right in the middle of the back of the main assembly. Turn it about a quarter turn to the left and you can pull it away from the main assembly. If you're replacing both the bulb and the main assembly, see the next section on how to replace the bulb, then resume this process

    HOW DO YOU REMOVE THE ASSEMBLY ON THE OLDS 95 SO I CAN CHAGNE THE LIGHTS.. I REMOVED TWO SCRES IN THE FRONT BU IT DOES NOT HELP TO REMOVE THE ASSEMBLY


    Step 1:
    Be sure the ignition key is not in the ignition, and the headlight switch is in the "Off" position.



    Step 2:
    Locate and remove the two headlight assembly screws on the top rail of the headlight assembly. Use the nut driver to remove them.


    Step 3:
    Place a rag between the headlight assembly and the bumper to protect the paint.


    Step 4:
    Wrangle the assembly outward. There is a guide pin behind the assembly on the fender side that holds it in place. This needs to be popped out of its socket in order to remove the headlight assembly. Pull slightly outward from the side, then forward and away from the car.


    Step 5:
    Locate the correct bulb socket (high-beam/low-beam). Disconnect the wire connector using the flathead screwdriver.


    Step 6:
    Turn the socket 1/4-turn counterclockwise to remove the socket from the headlight assembly. Remove the old bulb.


    Step 7:
    Insert the new bulb into the headlight assembly, and turn clockwise to lock into place. Be careful not to touch the glass bulb of the new socket. This could degrade headlight performance.


    Step 8:
    Reconnect the wire connector to the bulb. Test the light before replacing the headlight assembly, then turn off the lights again.


    Step 9:
    Reinsert the headlight assembly, making sure to align the guide pin into the socket. Replace the screws and tighten.

    Remove headlight assembly from a 2001 Dodge Ram


    On the upper grill side of the headlight assy. there
    should be 1 or 2 push pins that hold the seal on the
    headlight assy to the front of the fender. Also check
    for a guide/push pin on the inner top of the assy on
    the outer fender side. That should be all there is to
    hold the headlight in place. Hope this helps.

    How to change the headlight bulb on the passenger side of 2005 equinox


    Step 1 - Raise the hood and remove the 4 push-in retainers that go along the top of the front grille. These are each two part retainers - remove both parts by prying with a small screwdriver. Nothing comes off here - this just makes the grille loose for maneuvering the headlight assembly around to get it in and out.
    Step 2 - Remove the "bow tie" trim piece that runs from headlight to headlight thru the middle of the front grille - it is cheap plastic so do this carefully (mine looks like chrome with the Chevy 'bow tie' in the center). To do this, use a flat-bladed screwdriver and a rag (to protect the headlight). This trim part comes off - I started at the driver's side and work toward the passenger side. Place the rag below the trim on the headlight. Carefully pry up on the trim piece with the screwdriver and work the trim with your fingers until it pops out of the headlight assembly catch. There are lock tabs on both the top and bottom of this trim piece when you get to the grille area. Work your way down the trim piece by prying wherever you locate a tab and protecting with the rag as you go until the "bow tie" trim piece comes off. The headlight assembly catches are the tightest. Set it off to the side so you don't step on it or scratch it.
    Step 3 - Unbolt the light assembly. There are two hex-headed screws on top and one 10MM down inside (towards the center of the car). Remove these 3 bolts.
    Step 4 - Remove the assembly - There are 2 guide tabs in the lower outside part of the light assembly (opposite the 10MM screw). Wiggle the assembly while pulling out (forward). When the tabs clear, lift up on the headlight and it should be easy to work the rest of the way out to gain access to the headlamp.

    Step 5 - remove and replace the bulb - it is halogen so you DO NOT touch it with your fingers because the finger oil will cause a hot spot and the bulb will burn out fast. Handle the new bulb with a clean cloth - a clean sock works well.

    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.

    To replace the headlights on your aurora, theres 2 silver looking screws on top of the headlight assembly under the hood. take those screws out(1 long and 1 short) and CAREFULLY pull forward on the entire light assembly. theres tabs on the far inside of the light assemblies that can be loosened with a flat head screwdriver. good luck.

    How to change a marker light bulb


    to change the turn signal bulb on the headlight there is usually either a screw or tab that releases parking light lense from headlight. to just completely remove the headlight there are the two screws up top and also two lower if we are taking about the right side(drivers side, standing in front of vehicle) one of the screw is to the right side down near the inner fender, it is even with the bottom of the headlight. the other screw can be seen between the headlight and the radiator support about in the same area just opposite the other side. take a flashlight with you, not too hard to see
