Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix

Grand prix headlights

It's a 2001 and the two bolts made it easy to remove the passenger side headlight assembly. The drivers side, however, just gets a little loose. I can't pull it out, pry it out, etc. Something has to be holding it in besides those two bolts. And suggestions

Hi,
Hope you have solved this by now but if haven't here's how. There is a bracket on the back of the assembly that helps hold it in place. After you remove the two bolts on the top, you must slide the entire assembly (facing the vehicle) to the right for the drivers side or to the left for the passenger side. The bracket has a little lip and a tab in a slot on the inside toward the grille and they only go in one direction. Don't **** on it too hard or the bolt clips will scratch the paint off the bumper. Good luck!

Trying to change headlight bulb


Hello,

The 2004 grand prix pontiac houses 2 headlight bulbs per headlight assembly. The low beam headlight are located at the fender of the car and the high beam on the grill side of the assembly.

To replace the headlight bulb of Your pontiac grand prix, 2004 model. It is qiute technical and moderately easy to fix. There is no solution that cannot be done the DIY way, as long as You get the proper guide and You are technically able to do such works.
  1. Park the Grand Prix on a flat surface, apply the parking brake and ensure both the engine and headlight switches are off.
  2. Open the hood and approach the headlight assembly with the faulty headlight bulb.
  3. Locate the headlight assembly retaining clip. It's behind the headlight assembly on top on the fender side. Lift the clip upward halfway to release the headlight assembly.
  4. Pull the assembly out being careful not to scratch the paint on the fender or the lens of the assembly.
  5. Reach behind the assembly and disconnect the wire connection and plug from the headlight bulb socket.
  6. Turn the socket of the bulb counterclockwise 1/4-turn to remove the composite bulb from the assembly. Discard the bulb.
  7. Install the replacement bulb into the assembly (handling the plastic socket part only oil in skin will damage the glass bulb of halogen bulbs because of the intense heat they burn at), but ensure the tabs of the socket end of the bulb are aligned with the notches in the assembly before turning it clockwise and locking the bulb into place.
  8. Plug the wire connection back into the socket of the bulb before replacing the assembly back into place and pushing down on the retaining clip. Test the headlight bulb for operation before closing the hood.
Hope this was helpful. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

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. :)

Can't figure out how to change the passenger side headlight


On most new cars theres 2 tabs (made of sheet metal, 1 inch wide, bent 90 degrees) on each headlight that you pull up and it will release the headlight. im not completley sure on Grand Prix's but if there are no tabs then look for 10mm sheet metal bolts going through the upper radiator support above your headlights. those should release the headlight if there are no tabs.

Hope this helps!

Headlight bulb size for a 2002 grand prix


You need a 9007 bulb

In order to change the bulb, just loosen/remove the two bolts holding the entire light assembly in (side marker, headlight and turn signal) Once these bolts are removed the entire assembly will shift / slide out away from the center of the vehicle. Once the assembly is removed you will have access to the wires/bulb.

Upside down L shaped bracket that is bolted to frame just behind headlight assy. Unbolt bracket, lift bracket straight up to unlock headlight assy. Headlight assy should easlier fall forward to replace any of the 3 bulbs

How to replace passenger side headlight assembly on 2001 BMW 325i


The E46 2001 325i headlight assembly is held down by 4 bolts. Question is where they are and how to get to them. The 4 bolts require a 10mm wrench.

There are two bolts on top of the headlight assembly. And two more near the back of the assembly, near the area where you would change a headlight bulb.

There is just one more trick to this. Please refer to this trim: http://e46fanatics.com/howto/howtodetail.php?howto_id=24

This trim hooks on to the side fender, just under the turn signal. You have to unhook this.

Then the entire headlight assembly (including the turn signal) can be slided out together.
