Replacement of failed RH daylight driving headlight.

The RH day time driving light is out. How do you gain access to said bulb to replace it? It appears it isn't done from behind the headlight assembly. My guess is you have to remove the entire assembly from outside the vehicle, then replace the failed bulb and then reinstall the entire unit. My queation is just how do you remove the unit.

How do you replace the headlight on a 2002 Daewoo Lanos


Hi there, together with providing you the solution to the problem, I also took the liberty of going one step further in giving you steps on how to remove the headlight bulb.

  • Find the hood release handle and activate it, the hood should pop open.
  • Once the hood is popped open locate the hood secondary or safety latch and release it. Then finish opening the hood.
  • Locate and remove mounting clips for any plastic shields that cover the headlight lens mounting screws or clips.
  • Some headlight bulbs can be replaced by simply grasping the bulb socket behind the headlight lens and turn it counter clockwise to remove it. This will expose the headlight bulb.
  • If the headlight bulb socket is not accessible the headlight lens may need to be remove or obstructions behind the bulb removed to gain access to the headlight bulb socket.
  • To remove the headlight lens remove all mounting screws and clips that hold the headlight lens in place.
  • After the headlight housing has been removed from it's mounts, release the headlight bulb from the headlight lens housing (turn counter clockwise) the bulb will then come out of the headlight assembly. Once removed, visually verify that the replacement bulb is exactly the same as the failed bulb before to ensure a proper repair.
  • Clean the headlight lens free from all debris to help maintain the seal from the bulb to the lens. This will keep moisture out of the lens.
  • Install the new headlight bulb by turning the retainer ring or bulb clockwise.
  • Re-install the headlight lens housing and reinstall electrical connector.
  • Re-install plastic covers.
After the job is complete turn the ignition key to the "on" position and activate the headlight switch. Observe the newly replaced headlight bulb to ensure proper operation.

Glad to be of help!!!

Replacing headlight bulb on 2006 maxima


Hello,

Replacing Your headlight bulb seem to be easy when You look at it, but quite technical. But If You get the proper guide, I think fixing this will not be difficult for You. You will be needing these instruments to fix this(Flathead screwdriver, Phillips head screwdriver, 3/8 inch drive ratchet, 3/8 inch drive 10 mm socket, Replacement bulb(s), Shop rags or towel), then You carefully follow the steps below to fix this:
  1. Turn the steering wheel all the way in toward the engine on the side you are changing the light bulb in. For the driver's side bulb replacement, turn the steering wheel all the way to the right. For the passenger side bulb replacement, turn the steering wheel all the way to the left.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to the off position and remove the keys. Make sure the light switch is in the off position.
  3. Remove the retaining clips and screws from the front of the wheel well area, including the bottom splash shield valance underneath the front of the Maxima. The valance is attached to the wheel well and can be left intact. Use the Phillips head screwdriver for the screws and the flathead screwdriver to pop up the center post of the clips and then pry the clips out. Remove enough of the clips to gain access into the front fender cavity.
  4. Locate and turn the outer low-beam headlight cover counterclockwise to remove it. This will reveal the bulb and socket.
  5. Turn the bulb counterclockwise to remove it from the headlight assembly.
  6. Release the retaining pin (if applicable for theft deterrent package).
  7. Remove the wire harness plug from the bulb socket and then remove the bulb.
  8. Insert the new bulb into the socket without touching the glass of the bulb. Reverse the procedure to reinstall.
But if it is the high beams bulb You want to replace, then please follow the steps below, It is the same instruments as before You will be needing to do this job.
  1. Release the hood latch if you're replacing the high beam bulb only. Then lift the hood. Locate the two 10 millimeter bolts at the top of the headlight assembly and remove them with the ratchet and the socket.
  2. Locate the four fascia retaining pins and remove them using the flathead screwdriver. This will allow flexible movement of the fascia to remove the headlight assembly.
  3. Place a shop rag or towel between the tight gap of the fascia and the bottom of the headlight assembly to prevent scratching the fascia.
  4. Maneuver the headlight assembly forward away from the front of the Maxima. There is a guide pin still retaining the assembly in place so apply equal parts of determination and gentleness to remove the assembly without scratching the lens or the fascia.
  5. Remove the headlight assembly far enough to get your hand behind it and remove the seal from the back of the high-beam headlight. Turn the seal counterclockwise to remove.
  6. Turn the bulb counterclockwise to remove from the assembly.
  7. Release the retaining pin (if applicable).
  8. Unplug the wire harness from the light bulb and remove the light bulb.
  9. Plug the new replacement bulb into the wire harness without touching the glass of the bulb.
  10. Reinstall by reversing the procedure.
Hope this information helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

I have a 2001 Acura 3.2 TL headlight goes on and off


As with Laurenson 538, I have the same problem with my 2001 CL.

Should this problem with the 2001 Acuras be a recall issue? I, too, have replaced the headlight assembly ($1,000 plus). The old one (sealed[?]) had moisture in it... the reported cause of the light burning out. Within a short period, the $1000 replacement had moisture in it and has just burned out again.

Now, at a different Acura agency, I'm told that the bulb needs another $1,000 replacement. When I asked about the warranty, I was advised 90 days was the warranty. When I asked if I was expected to spend $1,000 every 90 days to be able to drive the car, the rep got defensive.
Writing Acura resulted in a big Zero. Before buying a new Acura, one might inquire about the headlights. Since one can't drive without headlights, maybe Acuras should be reserved for daylight driving only! Have a backup car for night driving!

2000 silverado The daytime running lights were not working but the headlights are now on all the time, functioning like running lights. I replaced the bulbs in the running lights but this made no...


check to see if something is blocking the daylight sensor on the dash. If it is not being blocked check to see if the relay for the automatic lights is stuck. If any of these issues are happening then the headlights would be on switching off the daytime running lights

Replace front driver signal light bulb


Depending on whether it is the front or the back turn indicator light will determine on what needs to be done. If it is the front turn indicator light open the hood of the car you may need to take the entire headlight out. The headlight may have screws, take the screws out then the front light will come out from the outside of the vehicle replace the burned out bulb. The bulb should snap right in and then put the headlight back in make sure you put all screws back in from the inside of the hood. Step2 If it is the back turn indicator light, go through the trunk of the vehicle. If there is a panel covering the lights you must unscrew the panel and then replace the burned out light bulb. Some panels can be folded down without removing all of the screws to access the lights. This light may not require for you to pop the entire light out you maybe able to just replace the bulb. After you have replaced it screw the panel back into place. The back light should not require the entire light to be lifted out just a simple bulb replacement. Step3 In replacing either the front or the back indicator light you must gain access to the turn signal housing which is usually in the same case as the headlight or your rear lights. It is very helpful to also get the owners manual out this will tell you exactly what type of bulbs you will need to get to replace the indicator bulb.
