Bulbs used in most other lighting fixtures fit into sockets and are held in place by spring tension or mechanical force.

changing front parking light - 0900823d8004e118.gif

Common type of automotive bulbs.
Bulbs are coded with numbers for replacement purposes. Bulbs with different code numbers might appear physically similar but have different wattage ratings.
There are two basic construction designs for exterior lights: those in which the lens is removed and then the bulb removed from the front, and those in which the light assembly must first be removed, then the socket from the back of the assembly, and finally the bulb from the socket.

  • Removing the lens from the latter type assembly could cause serious damage to the reflector due to dust and other contaminants.
  • Wiping the reflector surface to clean it can also seriously reduce the light's brightness. Therefore, do not remove the lens from light assemblies in which the socket and bulb are removed from the back of the assembly.
  • The bulbs are held in their sockets in a number of ways.
  • Some bulbs are simply pushed into and pulled out of their sockets, and some are screwed in and out.
  • To release a bayonet-style bulb from its socket, the bulb is pressed in and turned counterclockwise.
  • The blade-mount style is removed by pulling the bulb off the mounting tab, then turning the bulb and removing it from the retaining pin.
  • To replace a bulb, remove the bulb accordingly from its socket, and insert a new bulb.

Danielle, On the driver side you may have stuff in the way, which may have to be removed, to change bulb. Sometimes it is easier to remove headlight then change bulb and reassemble. Videos attached make it look fairly easy to change he bulb with out removal of headlight.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck.

Civic headlight restoration


HTML clipboard Honda civic head lights are known for their yellowing look, They begin to lose their luster. Here is a simple trick for fixing your yellow, tarnished headlights. Don't get stuck paying for an expensive headlight repair kit ; save some money and give this a try. It will definitely give you great results

-Tools needed - buffer, terry cloth bonnets, Rubbing compound, polishing compound and a any type of polish.

- Procedures - The first thing you will need to do is clean the headlight of any debris so that when you are buffing it you do not cause any deep scratches in the lenses. Next apply a generous amount of the rubbing compound to the buffer and begin buffing the lens with an even back and forth motion until all the compound has turned into a powdery substance. Then wipe it off with a small cloth. Now use the polishing compound to smooth the lens using the same buffing method. The last step is to apply the polish with a dry cloth and rub in circles until the polish is even distributed over the lens, I prefer to use Scratch Out polish for a great shine. visit fix my civic .net for more tips and tricks

Problem with parking back lights on my school bus I changed all the fuses and nothing my headlights work reverse lights work


Do the front park lights work? The front and rear park lights should be on the same circuit. If no park lights operational, possible switch or power/ground issue. If only rear park lights not working, suspect burned out bulbs/wiring problem to rear lights

Where do I locate the fuse of the headlights in a 1984 jeep


Don't believe there is one for headlights. Your jeep is too darn old: I can see wiring diagrams going back to 1986 at a site, so I looked at one for an '86 CJ7. Unfortunately not a complete headlight wiring diagram, however, so you're getting a two bit answer, with inflation worth about 10 cents. lol.

The headlight switch gets power from a fusible link (Fuse link A) that looks like it may be located on the starter solenoid terminal- two fuse links- A & B, there somewhere. But this same fusible link A also supplies power to the fuse block with the park/tail lamps, hazards, brake lights, and a couple others. So if you have stop lights and park lights, then the fusible link is good, so you should have power to the headlight switch. Neither the fuse block, nor the instrumentation diagram, shows any fuses for the headlights. A lot of older vehicles did not have headlamp fuses, because the light switch had a built-in circuit breaker.

My guess is you have a bad dimmer switch, or the connection there may be bad. Or check if you have power to the headlight socket with the light switch on, and if you do, there may be a headlight ground problem.

Damaged grill and driver's side headlight assembly completely missing


Yeh, but who won?? All you need is an eye patch and dental work. Poor deer.
If you have the time and inclination, a trip or two or 3 to a salvage yard could get you all the parts to renew it, and save you a lot of money that a body shop would charge.

verify that you do not have condensation or corrosion in the light sockets. if you do, they sockets need to be replaced. your fuses are blowing most probably due to a faulty ground caused by corrosion (rust).

rebuilding the SC is not a do it yourself repair, and requires special tools to do it properly (ie. with out it blowing apart when you start it)

How do you change the front driver side parking light?


open the bonnet, locate the phillips screw, between the headlight and park light, located by looking down over the top of the light. Just looses, then you can leaver the parklight away from the headlight.

Can't get spring on the shoe to compress enough to make the emergency brake cable pull all the way through, do I need a special tool?


Putting the parking brake cable back on the new shoe is a PAIN IN THE A**. I have had some success using a pair of small vise grips. Trick is to get the end of the cable out as far as possible, then clamp it. I don't know of any special tool.
