Remove the outer cover behind the headlight assembly, it is clipped in. There will be a smaller circular cover behind that that is also clipped in, behind that will be the bulb socket that will come out by twisting and pulling it back.

How to change head light bulb, drivers side, 2006 Saab 9-7X


Easiest way is to stick your hand in front of the battery and take the dust cover off, twist the bulb and done. I'm lucky, have smaller hands! lol, If you can't get to it, remove the battery for easy access.
The passenger side requires removal of the aircleaner box.

Drivers side head light is way dimmer than passenager light even after new bulb replacement


When looking from the outside of the headlight at the bulb, can you see the bulb clearly??
These lenses are notorious for dulling very badly. If it has you can use a regular headlight 'restoring' kit sold at most auto part locations.

If it is not a lens issue, you may have a wiring/supply issue.
Then you would need to find the troublesome wire/connection.
I am not the best at wiring issues, but I would try to find a power source wire with the same amperage rating, run a bypass jumper from a known good voltage source and see if the light changes. If no change, your problem may be the harness or plug at the rear of the headlight bulb.
Hope I could help

F 150 Head light issue


You know the fuse for the high beams is good ( Cab fuse panel fuse # 16 ) and the pass low beam fuse ( cab fuse panel # 26 ).
Might want to check cab fuse panel fuse #28 ( this is the driver's side low beam ).

If this fuse has power on both sides ( with the low beams on ) next you can pull the headlamps, and check for power at the connectors, but depending when the last bulb change took place, I would say you need need bulbs. ( need at least 1 for the high beam out )
Confirming with a meter at the headlamp would be a good idea, before spending the money.

The bulb connector has 3 pins.
Black wire is ground on both sides
Light Green w/ Black stripe wire is high beams on both sides
Driver Lo = Dark Blue w/ white stripe
Pass Lo = Dark Green w/ Orange stripe.

How to change head light bulb toyota corolla 98. Difficult to reach bulb from engine compartment. Do I need to remove all head light assembly to change the bulb?


no!!!! its difficult, but possible... the headlights have a rubber cover over the wiring harness. pull it off, un plug the harness, and there is a metal wire bracket, hard to explain, if you check out the driver side first (easier to access) the other side should be a breeze. hope this helps

Removing Head Light Housing to Change Bulb


you should be able to access those bulbs from inside the engine compartment... you will likely have to remove the battery if it's on that side... the connector generally turns about a quarter turn to remove it. do not touch the bulb itself as that will shorten it's lifespan.
