    The above works for the driver's side light but not the driver's side as Dodge in it's wisdom put an air filter assembley in front of the light so you can't get access to the bulb without removing the assembly. The manual also says to remove the front grill and then the light assembly will pull out and you can access the bulb that way. I think removing the air filter would be easier.

No. Just twist black locking retainer about half turn counterclockwise (left), remove it & wiggle bulb out. replace bulb without touching glass part of it which shortens the life if you do. Add a little vaseline to Orange O ring, to make it pop back in, after you make sure tabs on bulb are aligned with ones in the hole of housing. You may need to wiggle it back in too. Put retaining ring back on, turn clockwise until it locks, plug wire connector back in to back of bulb, until it snapps onto catch on bulb and your good to go.

    I certainly don't remember all that on my 95' neon, but i guess that's progress, or engineering at it's best. I hate to say it, but that goes on in every industry, I guess to improve the economy. You get so frustrated trying to do things yourself now, that you end up paying someone else to get frustrated, and do it for you.?

No, you can easily reach your hand behind without removing anything and the bulb can be removed and replaced. If your hand is too large then their are two screws on the top of the light assembly that once removed you can pull the hole assembly out and change the bulb

Right headlight low beam does not work, high beam does. Left side headlight works fine


I had the same problem with my 2004 ram, passenger side low-beam wouldn't work after replacement. Online I saw many things from socket replacement to Fcm replacement. What worked was to remove fcm (front control module) and clean appropriate contacts with small nail file . Repair took less than 1 hour and cost 0$, wish I could give credit where I found info.

Remove headlight assembly from a 2001 Dodge Ram


On the upper grill side of the headlight assy. there
should be 1 or 2 push pins that hold the seal on the
headlight assy to the front of the fender. Also check
for a guide/push pin on the inner top of the assy on
the outer fender side. That should be all there is to
hold the headlight in place. Hope this helps.

How do you get in to change the headlight bulb on the 2004 Dodge Dakota


Remove the single torx screw holding the parking lamp assembly to the headlamp assembly. Remove the parking lamp bulb and sockets from the main assembly and set aside. Remove the three bolts holding the headlamp assembly. Pull the headlamp assembly forward off of the alignment pin and disconnect the harness from the back of the bulbs. Turn the bulb holder and pull the bulb out. Replace in reverse. Total replacement should take 15 minutes. Gregg

Thanks for the tips Gregg! Indeed, don't work anywhere but in front of the grill. Notes from my adventure:
You'll need a t-10 torx skinny screwdriver, and a 10mm socket wrench/driver.
Find the little torx screw near the bottom side of the headlight nearest the wheel and remove it. Tug and wiggle on the turn signal unit and it'll come loose. You'll find three 10mm bolts that hold the headlight unit in. More tug and wiggle and the unit falls free. After bulb replacement (don't touch the glass or finger oils can cause it break under high heat) replace the headlight unit. You'll see little plastic guides that the signal unit slides into- replace the unit and the tiny screw that holds it all in place. Replace the other bulb too, the second one takes a tenth of the time :)

I have to replace the ballast for the HID headlights on my 2004 XC70 volvo and it is under the headlight assembly. I just need assistance on how to remove the passenger side headlight assembly


You need to remove the front bumper. Five push clips along the hood line, remove the headlight wipers (if equipped), one T25 screw in the front of each fender well, then two 12mm bolts under the headlights (1 each side). Then there are 4 10mm bolts holding the headlight in.

How to change headlights on 2004 ram1500


If you are replacing the headlight bulbs, rotate the bulb retaining lock ring counter-clockwise, pull retainer out of headlight housing and disconnect electrical connector. On the drivers side, you have to remove the fuse and relay box screws and move the box to the side to access the headlight bulb. If you are replacing the headlight housings, there is a push pin and 2 screws on the inside, behind the hood and one screw on the outside at the bottom. Remove these and pull the housing out enough to remove the bulb retainers.

Headlight Issue


No, you just might have to take out the battery. I was able to do it without taking the battery out, but only because I was being stubborn. There is one thing I definitely have to say is that you should change both headlights at the same time. My driver side headlight was the first one to go and I didn't listen and just changed that one, days later my passenger side one went out!

Need to remove headlight assembly on a 2004 Volkswagon Touareg. I can't locate the removel clip. (last step)


Once you turn the octagon screw to release the light and push it forward or out of the front of the vehicle, take a light and look to the left side if your working on the driver side or the right side if your working on the passenger side and you will see a metal tab release. Take a long flat head screw driver and press down toward the ground gently. The headlight will be released and the whole assembly comes out as it has a plug/electrical connection on the back of the assembly. I just replaced my headlights, I have a 2004 Touareg with 44,000 miles and have already gone through 2 sets of headlights. The VW dealer will want $300.00 to replace 1 side! They have lost their minds. How long have you had yours and what engine do you have? Just curious if you have had any problems? My Touareg has just needed tires, brakes, headlights. I have done the brakes as well. They want around $900.00 + for front plus about 8 for the rear. If you need anything just hollar and if you have any questions just let me know if I canhelp.
