Headlight Cover Came Off

I walked out to the parking lot yesterday after work and found my headlight cover laying on the ground in front of my car, it is obvious that no one hit me, i think it just came unglued. By headlight cover i mean the clear thing trhat came on the car to cover the headlight, nothing that was added special after i bought it. Anyways i called the dealer and they said it would be $300 to fix which seems ridiculous because they dont need to replace anything, just glue it back on. Has thish appened to anyone before, and does anyone know if there is a certain type of glue I should use to fix it so that this does not happen again?

How to change headlight on 2000 galant


  • 1
    Place the Mitsubishi on a flat service in park. Set the parking brake before continuing.

  • 2Open the Galant's hood and locate the headlight cover -- roughly 3-inch wide circular piece of plastic -- behind the headlight bulb intended for replacement. Turn this cover clockwise to unlock it and pull it from the headlight assembly, exposing the headlight socket below it.


    3

    Hold the rear of the headlight socket and turn it counterclockwise to unlock it. Pull the headlight socket and bulb from the headlight assembly.


    4

    Grab the bulb and pull it from the socket with a slight wiggling motion.


    5

    Pick up the new 9003 headlight bulb using a clean, lint-free cloth and line up its prong with the slots in the socket. Never tough the bulb with your bare hands, as the oils left by your hands can cause the bulb to burn out prematurely.


    6

    Slide the socket and new bulb into the headlight assembly and turn the socket clockwise to lock it into place.


    7

    Place the plastic cover behind the bulb and turn it counterclockwise to lock it into place.


    8

    Repeat Steps 1 through 7 for the headlight bulb on the other side of the Galant, if needed.


    9Close the Galant's hood.

    How to change headlight lamp in 2005 Pontiac g6


    To change the bulbs you need to first remove the 5 plastic pop screws on the front bumper. They're spread out at the top of the bumper right under the hood. Once you get those out, you have to remove the two hex bolts on each headlight. Then it gets tricky. You need to pull the light towards the front of the car until it pops out of the ball-bearing type mount on the fender. Once that pops out, you have to pull the front bumper forward while maneuvering the headlight out towards the front.

    As per the manual it says as follows:---

    Open the hood.

    Hold the headlamp to prevent damage to the headlamp or to the fascia. Remove the bolts from the headlamp assembly. Remove the push-in-retainers across the front fascia. Remove the headlamp assembly. Lift the headlamp upward to release the locating tab from the front edge of the fender.

    Disconnect the electrical connector from the headlamp assembly.

    Remove the headlamp bulb access cover by rotating the headlamp bulb access cover counterclockwise, if necessary.

    Remove the headlamp bulb from the housing by rotating the socket counterclockwise, if necessary.

    Disconnect the headlamp bulb electrical connector, if necessary.

    Remove the park/turn bulb access cover by rotating the cover counterclockwise, if necessary.

    Remove the park/turn bulb from the housing by rotating the socket counterclockwise, if necessary.

    Gently pull the park/turn bulb from the socket, if necessary. Install the park/turn bulb into the bulb socket.

    Install the park/turn bulb socket into the headlamp housing by rotating the socket clockwise.

    Install the park/turn bulb access cover by rotating the cover clockwise.

    Connect the headlamp bulb to the headlamp electrical connector.

    Install the headlamp bulb into the headlamp housing. Rotate the socket clockwise until locked.

    Install the headlamp bulb access cover by rotating the cover clockwise.

    Position the headlamp assembly to the vehicle. Lift the headlamp upward to release the locating tab to the front edge of the fender.

    Install the bolts to the headlamp assembly. Tighten the bolts to 2 N·m (18 lb in).

    Install the push-in-retainers across the front fascia.

    Close the hood.

    ----------This will help.thanks.Helpmech.

    How to change a front light bulb


    p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; }
    • Ensure that the headlights on your Ford Focus are off by checking you have turned the headlight control all the way to the off position. Make sure your car is off and the keys are out of the ignition, so the daytime lamps are also off.
    • Open the hood using the hood release handle located inside the vehicle under the steering wheel on the left side of the instrument panel. Walk around to the front of your Ford Focus and release the auxiliary latch located under the front of the hood. Lift the hood and secure it in place with the yellow end of the hood's strut in the designated holes.
    • Locate the bulb cover found just behind the headlight assembly and remove it by turning it counterclockwise. Swivel the wire clip that hold the bulb and connector in place out of the way by turning it to the left.
    • Pull out the headlight bulb with its electrical connector straight out from the headlamp assembly.
    • Disconnect the bulb from the connector. Later editions of the Ford Focus may have a retaining ring that lies between the bulb and electrical connector. Simply remove this retaining ring by twisting it off with a counterclockwise turn.
    • Install the replacement headlight bulb in reverse order of removal. Use a HB2 replacement bulb for models older than 2004 and a HB5 bulb for models produced since 2005. Replace the wire clip and bulb cover, as well.
    • Turn on your Ford Focus and check that the headlights are working properly after closing the hood.

    My brights quit working. My headlights work fine on my 2006 Chevy Equinox


    Most of the time I find that both headlight bulbs are burned out. Remove the headlamp, open the hood and remove the retainers that hold the front grill/bumper cover to the upper radiator support. The gently pull out on the front bumper cover that goes over the headlamp to release the retainer and cover retainer with tape to avoid scratching the headlamp lens. remove the 3 bolts that hold the headlamp in place 2 at the top and one down at the bottom of the headlamp on the inboard side. Pull out on the outboard bottom part of the headlamp to release the retainer. Disconnect the headlamp bulb ck for power and ground at the headlight bulb connector. Use a test light and ck the red and white wire voltage and the d blue and pnk wires for ground. The high beam is the pink wire.So connect your test light from the pink wire to the red and white wire and turn on the high beam headlights your test light should light if it does then the bulb is burned out.

    How to change headlight on 2007 saturn outlook


    Best method that I found is to just take the 6 phillips screws (4 in the well and 2 below the front bumper cover) out of the forward wheel well panel and reach in behind the panel to the headlight assembly.
