Question about 1992 Honda Accord

Headlight replacement Do I have to take off the bumper cover to replace the passenger headlight unit? What do you suggest? I plan to remove the battery, the rad overflow and then get to the bottomof the headlamp to remove the screws. I'm concerned they may not turn after being installed for so long. Suggestions?

    I have the same problem. I need to replace the entire assembly. Someone backed into my car and broke the headlamp glass and the side lenses. I also need to remove the black frame that holds the headlamp in place. It appears you have to take the side of the bumper off at very least to get to these parts.

To remove the entire headlight assembly (not just the bulbs), the bumper has to be removed. There are two large nuts below the headlight assemblies (you'll have to remove the battery and overflow tank to get to the one on the passenger side), several mounting bolts behind the turn signals (single screw to remove these), and several retainers along the bottom. The whole bumper assembly can then be pulled forward. This will reveal at least three screws that hold the black headlight assembly frame to the body (along with the two on top to the radiator support).

You doo not need to remove the bumper...the rt side is a bit tighter than the left side though..on the back of the headlamp are plastic screw retainers..they turn 1/4 to 1/2 turn to unlock the headlamp bulbs.( you could remove the battery to do this..it will certainly give you more room.) once you turn the lock grab the bulb and pull it straight back , unplug it and plug the new one in. be careful not to touch the new bulb glass with your fingers as this can get oil on the surface and create a "hot spot" which can lead to premature failure!

How to take passenger headlamp out of 328i bmw 2008 so it can be replaced?


2008 328i Passenger headlight assembly removal.

The headlight assembly is held in by 4 "star" bolts (size 25); 2 visible on the top of the assembly, 2 not visible or easily accessible.

The 2 bolts not so visible require that the front half of the wheel well come off and the front bumper or "nose" of the car.... The bumper is what needs to come off, but there are 2 bumper bolts hidden by the wheel well.

The wheel well is held in by 7mm bolts, 2 of which are actually bolted to the bumper on the bottom.

The front bumper is held on with 7mm bolts on the bottom edge, and star bolts, size 25, accessible on the top edge. (Hood open). Here were my steps.

1. Jack up the car on the side you are replacing, remove wheel.
2. Using 7mm socket, remove all the bolts to peel off the front half of the wheel well. With the wheel well out, you can see the 2 other star bolts holding the headlight assembly, but you can only remove one of them... even if you were good enough to get both removed, the headlight assemble will not push out through the bumper.... Keep going with bumper removal.
3. Remove 2, 7mm bolts of the front bumper that are now visible up near the outer edge of the headlight assembly.
4. At this point I removed the bumper's top edge start bolts and bottom edge 7mm bolts about 3/4 of the way across the bumper...
5. The bumper is very flexible and you can now pull it back , reach in, and get that last difficult star bolt on the headlight assembly....
6. Don't forget the one electrical connector....
7. I also recommend testing the new assembly by plugging it in before removing anything

Electric fan wont kick in jeep over heats replaced thermostat and two sender units


Sounds like your cooling fan relay is bad the jeep grand cherokees are known for this, first thing i would do is unplug the radiator cooling fan and run 2 jumper wires direct from the battery to the fan connector if the fan kicks on your fan motor is good and the relay is bad, if the fan doesnt kick on replace the fan motor with a new unit, the cooling fan relay on your particular model jeep is located under the passenger headlight and requires you remove the front bumper to replace it, however some people cut a small hole under the headlight to access the relay the faster way but if your not to keen on cutting holes in your car remove the bumper and replace the relay if the fan checks out and you wont be overheating anymore...

My 2005 lexus rx 330 (passenger side) has condensation. Is the best solution to replace the headlight unit? I also have a extended bumper to bumper warranty, will this be covered?


Usually, the quickest/easiest solution is the replacement of the headlamp assembly. Your warranty provider may see it otherwise, but with an extended warranty, the seal failure should be covered.

You can try removing the bulb yourself and allowing the lamp to dry, then checking to see if the problem persists within a reasonable amount of time to ensure that it is in fact a bad seal, or you can submit warranty service to your provider.

How do you remove the fan relay sensor on a 2004 Grand Cherokee


The fan relay sensor is behind the vacuum reservoir which is below the right (passenger) headlight and behind the bumper cover. Remove the headlight and remove the bumper cover. The fan relay sensor is fastened by two screws. You may need to drill a hole in the headlight 'saddle' to get to the screws.

2002 honda oddessey: how do you replace the passenger headlight assembley


Yes, it is very involved. According to the Haynes manual you will have to first remove the radiator cover, the radiator grill, the inner fender splash shield pins (attached to the splash shield and front bumper cover), the front bumper cover, and finally the headlight housing. A DIYer can do this, but I recommend that you spend the $15 and get the Haynes manual because the pictures alone are worth it. Oh, and get a trim panel removal tool as well (cheap).

I need to know where the fan relay switch is under the hood


If you're talking about the cooling fan relay, it's behind the bumper cover under the passenger side headlight. Instead of taking the entire bumper cover off, you can take the right headlight assembly out, and cut a hole in the plastic cover. You won't see the hole after replacing the headlight, and I know several techs that do this. You might want to remove the battery, and look down to see where the relay is before cutting.
