    headlight burned out on passenger side of car

  • lange1017 Nov 07, 2008

    Both of my headlights are burnt out and I can't for the life of me figure out how to change them. It looks like you have to remove the entire headlight assembly but I don't really want to do that. Hopefully there is a way to remove and replace the bulb from the rear of the assembly but I don't see it...

Easy way.
1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
2. Raise the car on jack stands, and remove the front wheel (passenger side) .
3. Remove the screws on the bottom of the wheel well. (This is under the front bumper, four screws).
4. Remove some lowest plastic clips in the wheel well. (Thats about six total). These clips strip EXTREMELY easily.
5. Remove or bend back the wheel well. There is enough place for your hand.
6. Remove the lamp covers for the low beams. Disconnect and remove bulb from the housing.
7. Don't touch the lamp glass.

SOURCE: How do I change the passenger side headlight bulb on 2001 Altima

Open up the hood, and go in behind the fixture where the light is located. Sometimes there is an access panel on top. Open it and reach down inside and grab the bulb’s socket. Twist the socket a quarter turn counter clockwise, and pull out the socket. Grab the bulb, and pull it straight out. To replace the new bulb, never touch it with your bare fingers, as this will greatly shorten the bulb's life, if it even work's at all. Use a tissue or something else in that order to handle the new bulb. Push the new bulb into the socket, put the socket back into the housing, and twist a quarter turn clockwise to secure the socket into the fix.Seems that you have to remove the coolant bottle(two screws), and also the unscrew the washer fluid bottle, after that you can reach the socket that holds the bulb. There is a wire that holds the bulb in. if you loosen the screw you can tip up the wire and be careful to leave it in place...also the long side of the wire seems to connect to ground wire for the light...

SOURCE: low beam headlights keep burning out, 8 times on

If you visit many forums for Elantras, you will see that frequent headlamp failure is very common. It has been discussed over and over again and it is thought that always turning the lights off and on via the stalk switch is recommended. If you leave the light switch in the on position, when you start your car, the lights briefly flash on then off again as you turn your ignition to the start position and then turn on again as you release the key to return to the "on" position. This may be causing a power surge which creates stress on the bulb filament and can only be avoided by using the light switch instead of the ignition to power up the headlamps.

Changing passenger side low beam headlight bulb for 2001 Buick LeSabre Custom

there is very little room to gain access to the bulb from behind the headlight assembly.if you remove the plug for the headlight and then slide your hands down on either side of the bulb.there is a lock ring that you must remove(unlock)first.then pull the bulb out and install the new bulb and reassemble in reverse order.NOTE don`t touch the bulb glass with your hands or it can burn out prematurely from the oil on your skin.

Replaced both headlight bulbs and passenger side light still does not work on 2007 tundra

Check the fuses. I do believe there is a left and right side fuse for the headlamps. For some reason toyotas, especially highlanders, like to blow the fuses when the headlights burn out.
