Usually turn black retainer over bulb to left half turn or so and it should unlock & come off. Then wiggle bulb out of back of housing. If it's halogen, which it probably is like a # H9004 or similar number, make sure when you put it back in, you don't touch the glass bulb part, it will shorten the life of the bulb. The housing will have a notch to match the bulb base. Push it back in with notch lined up & wiggle it while you do, it makes it easier. It should pop into place with O ring seal of bulb all the way in. Then put retainer back on, turn right half turn until it locks, and push your connector back on over bulb base, and push in until it clicks in. You may want to rub a little vaseline on the new O ring of new bulb to make it easier to push in. Hope that helps.

Upgrade of headlight bulb for more road light


You can use higher wattage globes but you can over heat and damage your reflectors, the other option is HID globes, they use lower amperages but are best fitted by an auto electricion

Front passenger head light fails even with new bulb on 1995 nissan sentra


This is likely caused by using the wrong bulb.

You can certainly purchase after market bulbs of more modern technology that provide much better illumination than the manufacturer recommended brand. HOWEVER, those bulbs having a matching part number to what is recommended does NOT mean it is what you should necessarily use. The reason is the wattage. Higher wattage produces more heat.
Try a bulb of a lower wattage rating. I recommend going no higher than 20 watts beyond your original rating, do not allow the bulb glass to get dirty while installing nor touch with your bare fingers, and inspect your ground connections to the headlight assembly for any breakage, corrosion or looseness. Good luck!

Headlight bulbs always blowing honda civic type r 2005


are you using the stock OEM light wattage?

If you're running higher wattage than what is recommended ... you will run the risk of premature failure ... plus you could burn up the light wiring harness. If you are only using stock wattage and having this issues.. are you using SilverStars? They aren't known for lasting long in some cars.

Otherwise:

Make sure the headlight lens does not have any cracks. If moisture is getting in it will burn out quicker. Also check to make sure the electrical socket is not corroded. If it is, use an electrical cleaner and then put a dab of dielectric grease in the socket. When installing the new bulb, do not touch the glass part. Oil from your hands may shorten the bulb's life.

Check your under the hood fuses for your high beams, if anything but the correct fuse is in there it will kill the bulb from over powering it. If that's good, check the power wire, make sure it is not grounding out, and then check your grounds.

If all else fails go to http://www.hondahookup.com/manuals/
make an account and download the Factory Service Manual they have one for the EP3 and while it's the USDM version I'm sure your ground connections and voltages are the same.

Just want to know the type/number/specs. for the dash ilumination lights in my 2001 Silverado 1500. I have burnt out light bulbs in both the HVAC control panel ((2) and the headlight control subassembly...


Bulb info is so vague online and in basic service manuals, I suggest you stop by local parts store They have application charts where you can lQQk up your vehicle and each individual bulb by industry part# and by wattage. And yes they're 12volt

I don't know how to take off the head light lens cover on my nissan maxiuma


Probably not a lens cover at all. It's just a 1 piece plastic headlight. It you are wanting to replace a bulb , they go in from the back . Open the hood and you should be able to see where the wires to the bulb go in the back of the headlight.
