    Its really hard to disengage the headlight assembly after removing the long screw. No luck so far.

    how do you get access to the wiring connector that comes out of the headlight assembly? I pulled off the headlight assembly, but the wiring connector is behind a plastic wall/housing and I don't know how to access it. I want to replace the entire headlight assembly with a new one.

One long bolt at the top - requires a 7mm socket to remove the bolt. The light housing will pry out with a screw driver. There are three ball and socket type connectors that hold the housing in and I just pryed off the plastic housing carefully and "balls" pop out of the sockets. Finally, I was replacing the faded plastic housing and it came with a new wiring harness. It's impossible to reach the connector to use the new wiring harness that comes with the new plastic light housing. So just use the existing wiring harness with the new light assembly.

Hello

I just removed both headlights from my 2000 Jeep GC. I removed both long bolts with a pair if vise grips. Once the bolt starts to turn, spray in some WD40 under the head of the bolt. That was the easy part. Now the assembly is held in with three ball sockets into three plastic holders. It is a press fit. You should be able to pull the assembly straight out but the balls are most likely rusted. I used a long screwdriver and pried the assembly out. Because the balls are rusted, the plastic holders will pop out with the assembly. There are two on the radiator side and one on the upper fender side. Go slow and be careful.

John

Dlee388 is right. I ended up taking my replacement headlights to a mechanic who had to take off the front end of the vehicle in order to reach the connector for the new wiring harnesses. Had I not ruined the original wiring harnesses while removing them from the old headlight assemblies, the easiest fix would have been to use the old wiring with the new headlights. Be gentle with the old wiring while removing the the original headlights.

Its one long bolt on the head light at the top not sure what size it is after you take it out, the headlight assembly should come out after a few firm tugs. The headlight bulb you just unplug them and turn them to the right and it should just come out

Don't try to replace wiring harness, it appears to go into the frame and out of sight. Use the old and save the new bulbs and wiring for future use. After removing long screw out of center of unit, use a small prybar, such as you would use for trim on a house door. Locate the ball connector closet to the grill, insert prybar, but instead of pushing away from yourself, push to the left towards engine and then the other way. I found the the ball connector rusted after getting it out cleaned up, spray WD on it and switched the housing, checked make sure all bulbs worked and re-installed. Took about a hour for both, now they look great, just have to adjust light pattern.

Follow all of the other advice untill you try to remove the harness clip.It is a pain in the **** to remove. I cut out an access port in order to get to the harness clip. I dont know why there is a 1 inch hole that we are expected to work through. Once you see the clip...slide the red cotter clip out to separate the harness. That red clip should not come all of the way out.

I need to replace a 2000 jeep cherokee laredo headlight bulb. How do you get the headlight fixture out. I removed the screw that I thought was it but it did not budge... CJ


There is no screw involved. You do not remove the headlight housing. Look for wires going to the back of the headlight you should see a plastic retainer nut, take the nut off, pull out the pigtail connector and twist to the left to remove it from headlight housing, then pull the bulb out and replace. No screwdriver or any tools required.
P.S. Your local parts store usually will do this for you or show you how for free. As long as you buy the bulb from them.

Open the hood of the Cherokee. Above the headlights are one bolt to each headlight. This holds the headlight in place. Removed the bolt. Then just pull out the headlights straight forward. There are clips that hold the headlight to the inner panel.

On my '03, it's behind the right headlight.

You remove the headlight lens, then drill a 1" hole. The relay is behind that.

There should be pictures at www.wjjeeps.com.
