Yours probably doesn't have the locking latch but everything else is the same. These guys do a great job explaining how to do it. The video is a little drawn out but keep http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALcVKiHmn9Q&feature=youtube_gdata_player

SOURCE: how do you change the low beam bulb on a 2001 vw

It's easy, under the hood on the headlight casing is a lever like thing, (careful it is fragile) pull the lever up or down (can't remember). There is a notch under the lever that needs to be pushed in to 'release' the lever. Push the entire headlight casing out toward the front of the car. (The casing will hang over your bumper) Pull out the headlight and plug the new one in. Push the casing back in and lock the casing in with the lever. One note, there is some really sticky adhesive holding the light in, so you may have to push/pull hard to get it to slide out. I find that using WD40 on the tracks helps it to slide easier. You will have to use a screwdriver (or the like) covered by a rag to pry the light out.

What size light bulbs are used to replace behind temperature control panel (on the dials not the bottom buttons) on a 2005 CRV, are Sylvania bulbs available, or only a dealer part?


contact Sylvania direct on the net and quote the bulb size (dimensions)and wattage and ask if there is a aftermarket bulb to replace genuine ones with. As car manufacturers do not make bulbs there is every possibility that an after market will be available from the bulb manufacturer.

As for the horn, inspect the fuse and relay and most common it would be a bad ground wire or worst a bad horn due to corrosion. Horn will be located in the drivers side fender.

How do i change the brake light on jeep liberty 2006?


1) You will need to open the rear swing door.

2) On the inside jam there are two torx headed screws (T-15's if I remember correctly).

3) Unscrew the two torx screws.

4) The light is now held by two mounting tabs (small spherical headed plastic sets that go through a rubber grommet).

5) You will need to pry the light casing off (easy pressure with a good size flat head screw driver will do the trick).

6) The light bulbs are twist mount settings inside the light casing.

7) Twist out the mount setting, change the bulbs, and reset the light mountings.

8) To put the light casing push the light casing back on and put in the screws. Everything else will work in reverse when it comes to assembling the whole unit.

How to replace headlight on a 2003 Chevy Tracker


There are two black plastic clips behind the the air filter, remove them and release the whole assembly to access the lights.

If you still get in troubles, have it replaced at a petrol station, they will help you in fitting the bulb, and it won't be expensive.
