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.

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

Head lights, 04 X-Type Jaguar

sounds like a lot for labour charge,but yes its a big job to remove the headlight unit ,its about a 20min job to remove then time in finding fault and then refitting it.Also on the garages side you are paying for all the time in college as one solicitor said to me once you dont pay for what i do but for what i know ????.But look on the bright side its a JAG which means no smoking in it ,polish it every sunday and every second week rub the leather seats in with cream.also find a partner who is a mechanic to look after it for you
