SOURCE: 2006 buick lacrosse how to replace headlight low

The bright light fitting is the same as the dim so take it apart fist to see how the cover screws off/on and the light comes out. Both the cover and the bulb are removed by a standard twist to the counterclockwise and replaced by a twist to the clockwise. Now to the dim light. You have to release the entire light assembly before you can remove the screw-on cover to reach the light. On the rear edge of the light unit closest to the engine is a white locking tab. Pull that tab up just to the point where it releases…pull too far and it locks again. Next, locate the other locking bracket which is a metal bracket in the center-rear of the light assembly. This bracket is held down by a screw. Remove the screw with a 10mm wrench. Lift the bracket just like you did the white bracket. You should now be able to pull (or pry) the entire light unit forward a little. Depending on the size of your hands this might be enough. If not, then you need to release the plastic bumper assembly to give you a little more space. This is done by removing two expansion locking pins, one that holds the little plastic strip down between the bright and dim lights and one that is located inside a rubber bumper on the engine side of the light unit. To remove these locking pins, pull or pry up the little tab in the center of the pin just like you were pulling a nail by the head. That should give you a little more space.

SOURCE: 2008 buick lecerne headlight replace

Buick says that the front bumper has to be removed in order to remove the headlight assembly. Crazy, I know.. I found that you can remove the air filter box on the drivers side and squeeze your hand in a small hole to replace that bulb. The passanger side is nearly impossible. You can remove to nuts holding the fuse block in place and move it over a little and squeeze your hand in a little hole and reach it. Plan on two to three hours to change one bulb.

SOURCE: 2007 buick allure headlights will not turn

As you described the problem the solution is to replace the headlight bulbs, they have two elements one for normal lighting or low beam and one for high beams. the elements for the low beams are continuously used and are subject to burn sooner.

One high beam not working 2006 Buick lacrosse


Sampson, sounds like a bunt out bulb, which will need changed.
If you feel comfortable doing it yourself. Basically three screws, and you have to pull one plastic fastener from the fascia (bumper) and pull the bumper back a bit, and pull the assembly out. I believe it is in the manual, not bad to do. I will post a link to tell or show you how to do it. Press the helpful button

What kind of head light bulb do i need for a 2008 buick allure?


http://www.partstrain.com/store/details/Buick/Allure/Recon/Headlight_Bulb/2008/CX/6_Cyl_3-dot-8L/REC2649007PB.html

This site was very helpful. You can check to see if it'll fit your car exactly and you don't have to buy from them. (unless of course they're cheaper than everywhere else) call around see if anyone carries the part, and how much; you know do your homework, then if it all points to the site, then there ya go.

How do you change a low beam headlight bulb on a 2008 Buick Allure?


I actually did change my low beam bulb with ease. I took pictures to help with step by step procedures.

Step 1.

Step 2.
3_24_2013_7_17_35_pm.jpg
Step 3.

3_24_2013_7_18_07_pm.jpg
Remove the red dotted plastic plugs out. So you have wiggle room.
Once removed all the red dots, where the green dots are you can gently lift it past it, and pull it towards the front away from the engine.

Step 4.
Find the white latch and pull it up to the little square:

3_24_2013_7_12_29_pm.jpg
This you will see if you have pulled to far up, it has to match up with the little white square.

Step 5.
Black Latch, pull it up just the same way for the white latch, but you will need to unscrew the lock screw.


3_24_2013_7_14_49_pm.jpg
Step 6.



3_24_2013_7_20_15_pm.jpg
The light bulb port has to be turned clockwise to unscrew, opposite to lock back it in again.
Step 7.

Once done it should like this, and you will need to a flat screw driver to pop the little clips on the side of the holder and replace bulb.

Step 8, put everything back together and you are done.
