Changing driver side headlight bulb

Is it easier to do it myself or have it done. I looked and seems I need to take off a lot of plates and guards in order to access the lamp. Is there an easy way to do it?

They are simple to change. They are called a bulb capsule and they come out from under the hood.Simply remove the wire connector and give the bulb a gentle twist one way or the other(it will only go one way hence the gentle twist recommendation) pull the bulb out and carefully insert the new one twisting back to the lock position. Try not to touch it.Reinsert the wire connector and that should be it. Low beams are 9006 bulbs and high beams are 9005 bulbs.

Changing headlight bulbs on mitsubishi 380


You either have hands the size of an 8 year old child or you have never done this yourself. There is no way to access the connector and manipulate the connector release tabs to remove the globe on the drivers side with the assembly in place, with all the plumbing and water bottle in place. You have to remove the whole front bumper and associated guards etc etc just to replace a globe. Very poor design.

Replacing a headlight bulb in a renault clio rs 200


Just changed my Front Headlight bulbs on a 2012 Clio RS Raider / Ange & Demon. Brought the bulbs from HIDS Direct in the UK. All done without removing anything but 2 nuts holding the rubber airflow pipe on next to the battery and twisting the hose to enable me to put my hand between the battery and the front light unit. The other side was even easier ! It is a tight squeeze to get your hand in there. Remove the rubber cap protecting the bulbs, pull the supply plug off the back of the bulb, then unclip the U clip holding the bulb in place and safely remove the bulb. You may need a torch to see where your going when putting the bulb back in and you might end up with some cuts on your hand from the tight squeeze. BUT its a 10 minute job Vs a hour job removing the bumber alone and light fitting :)

Honda CR-V 1999: how to access front park lamp to change


Don't call me Surely (little joke there) but indeed, the fender/mud guard have to be dealt with. Here's the procedure:
1. If you are changing the bulb on the driver's side, start the engine, turn the steering wheel all the way to the right, and turn off the engine. If you are changing the bulb on the passenger's side, turn the steering wheel to the left.
2. Use a flat-tip screwdriver to remove the fastener from the inner fender.
3. Pull the inner fender cover back.
4. Remove the socket from the headlight assembly by turning it one-quarter turn counterclockwise.
5. To remove the turn signal/side marker bulb, push it in slightly and turn it counterclockwise. To remove the parking light bulb, pull it straight out of its socket.
6. Install the new bulb in the socket.
7. Insert the socket back into the headlight assembly. Turn it clockwise to lock it in place.
8. Test the lights to make sure the new bulb is working.
9. Put the inner fender cover in place. Install the fastener and push on the center until it locks (the center is flush with the head).
Hope this helps you deal with it.

How do I change a burned out headlight on my 07 Saturn Aura... lowbeams?


It's a bear to change the headlight on the saturn aura, you have to put the car on jack stands , unclip the splash guard on front side and pull it back then take out the washer fluid canister for the left side of car and just the splash guard on the right side. Theres a couple of bolts on the splash guard and tons of clips technically you are suppose to take them all off, but you can do the ones towards the front of car and pull the plastic back enough for access. This is not a fast job tho, but doable. I had to replace my headlight bulb.

I need help in changing headlight bulb on 2008 gmc sierra 2500


You have to remove the air intake filter and then kind of reach around up in there to change it. It can be done, but is a lot of work. On the duramax, it is even harder to do the driver side because of the dual batteries. You have to remove the battery, then the battery seat plate, and undo the winshield washer fluid tank and lean it forward. Then you can just sort of reach in and change both headlights. A very big pain to change a couple of headlights, but if you want HID's.... for the average person, changing a headlight now means a trip to that garage.

1999 Honda Civic "DRIVER" Side Headlight Bulb Replacement.. I've been on the net and the solutions say: "Just Unplug the Bulb and pull it out" Obviously, they haven't "SEEN" a 1999 Honda Civic Driver Side...


Okay, 1999 Honda Civic, Headlight (Driver Side). If you haven't fixed this or just wanna know, this is what you have to do. The power steering pump is in the way of you getting to the bulb. You will need to remove the back tube of the power steering reservoir, the one closest to the cabin of the car. Plug this tube with a rag, quickly as fluid starts flowing immediately. Pull the res up and out of the holder it sits in. Now on to the light. Grab a hold of the black plastic clip (with wires) on the sides, and pull the electronic clip out of the light. Gently pull the rubber tabs for the weather guards, and you should now see your old bulb. There is a metal clip that holds the bulb in place, gently release this metal clip, being careful to keep it in place. Makes the job easier when you put it together. Your old bulb can now be easily pulled out. I take the bulb at this point and plug it into the clip and test the lights. This assures me that the bulb is busted and a bigger job isn't ahead of me. Once confirmed, I place the new bulb in the headlight bezel, careful to not touch glass. Clip the metal hold down clip back in place. Put the Rubber grommet back in place, clip on the electrical wire clip. Test the headlight. Put power steering tubes back in place, place the res back on the holder, and done. The book and this site: http://www.andrewdothay.net/blog/2007/11/24/1998HondaCivicHeadlightReplacement.aspx helped me a lot!

How do I change the turn signal bulb on 2000 Ford Mustang


Actually its easier that what the other guy said. lift your hood, look at the headlight there will be two rods that u can pull on the top of the light where it sits in the frame. pull those and u can then pull your headlight out, that will make it alot easier to get to.

Hope This Helps.
