Headlight bulb replacement

Surprisingly, your owners manual is one of the best sources for information on headlight replacement and taillight replacement. I learned this a few years ago myself, it's the only repair instruction they put in a automobile owners manual.

I can't seem to find or how to change the blubs for the turn signals and the back up lights.

I don't have your make and model so I can only give a general answer.
  • Turn the engine off and open the hood. Pry up the two fasteners from the radiator air baffle with a flathead screwdriver. Move the baffle to the side to access the top of the headlight case.

  • 2

    Pull up the two metal rods behind the headlight case. These secure the case to the vehicle. You may need your pliers to pull them up.

  • 3

    Gently pull the headlight case out to access its rear. On the rear, you will find several black dust covers. Twist off the dust cover closest to the fender (the outward dust cover) to access the turn signal bulb.

  • 4

    Turn the bulb module counterclockwise to release it. Unplug the electrical connector from the bulb module. Connect the new bulb to the electrical connector (don't touch the glass with your hands; hold it by the plastic piece). Insert the bulb module in the turn signal housing, turn it clockwise and screw the dust cover back on.

  • 5

    Insert the headlight case in the mount. Push the pins back down to secure it. Position the radiator baffle in its place and insert the fasteners.

  • as far as back up lights,

  • Go in the trunk and pull back the side pannel of the trunk and turn the bulb until it comes out and change it and turn the new bulb back in place.

    I have a 2008 aveo. i took off the headlight but i can not get the plastic casing off to change the bulb.

    If you are talking about the headlight casing, where the clear headlight casing connects to your back headlight casing, that isn't the way to change the light bulb, you're going to damage the seals that protect water, and humidity.
    Here's a good site to visit

    There are some screws inside your trunk behind the black panel. You have to pull those out, and pull the whole light assembly out to replace the bulb.

    How do you change the headlight for a 2001 chevy cavalier

    i actually just did this a couple days ago, this takes about 20 minutes and a little bit of patience. When you pop your hood you will see a protective piece of plastic over the headlights/radiator, you firstly have to remove the plastic clips holding that piece then pull that piece of plastic off, once done u will see 2 bolts holding each headlight in place, i believe it is a 9/16 socket but if not just find the one that fits, remove the 4 bolts (2 for each headlight) and pull the headlight in an up and outwards manor. if you feel any resistance do not yank look at why it is catching and clear it, then it should just pop out (the headlight and the corner piece and clipped together so dont pull it too far out) then when the bulb is accessible pull the old bulb, put the new bulb in and voila place the headlight back into position, redo the 4 bolts holding the headlights and re-attach the plastic headlight/radiator cover. Enjoy the new lights

    Headlights don twork

    the daytime running lamps are the high beam bulbs connected in a series which puts a lower voltage to them causing them to appear dimmer. if your low beams are not working i'd start by checking the bulbs to make sure they're not just burnt out. then check the fuses. if that doesnt work let me know and i'll help you trouble shoot it further
