Depending on the year you have to remove the grille to gain access to the mounting bolts under the grille, as well as the lower air vents in the lower valence to gain access to those mounting bolts. Remove the screws from the fender well liner to the bumper and pull the front bumper off to gain access to the lower mounting bolts for the headlight assembly.

How to change a headlight on a 2006 cadillac sts


To remove the headlight assembly you need to remove the front bumper cover. There are two bolts and one stud with a nut that hold the headlight in. Two of the fasteners are behind the bumper cover.If you remove these the headlight must come out.

How to change headlight on 2004 Mercury


When you open the hood you will see a cover where the hood latch is. Some covers have individual doors on each side of the hood latch. If you have that type just pop the release on the cover and reach down to the headlamp bulb. It comes out with a twist with the socket and then pull the bulb free. Use a kleenex or gloves to install new bulb and reverse the process.

If the whole panel is one piece there are some plastic button holders to remove to lift the cover. Your headlights are underneath. In some cases the passengers side headlight may require removing the battery to access. Then just twist the socket and remove the bulb afterwards, then reverse process.

Changing the passenger side headlamp on altma


  1. Open the hood. Locate the two 10 mm coolant reservoir retaining bolts on the passenger side of the vehicle and then remove them using the ratchet and socket.
  2. Remove the 10 mm bracket retaining bolt using the ratchet and socket. Remove the bracket.
  3. Position the coolant reservoir out of the way to gain access to backside of the headlight assembly.
  4. Turn the large plastic headlight cover counterclockwise to remove it from the back of the headlight assembly. Remove the cover.
  5. Disconnect the wire harness clips from the headlight blades by pulling them off.
  6. Press in and then upward on the headlight retaining ring holding the headlight bulb in place. Remove the bulb.
  7. Align the new composite headlight into place without touching the glass bulb. Skin oils will greatly reduce and compromise the longevity of a halogen composite headlight.
  8. Refasten the retaining ring to secure the headlight into the headlight assembly. Plug the wire harness onto the blade of the headlight and test for function. Reassemble the remaining components by reversing the procedure.
Hope this helps. :)
