There is a small hex headed fastener behind the headlight, oriented vertically. Loosen this and remove it, it is long and passes through the body of the light housing to threads below. You then pull the headlight housing forward, its still held in place by several friction fasteners so it may take a little force but it will "pop" off and then when you're through you'll have to "pop" in back in.

How do I change a headlight in a 2003 Dodge Durango


I assume you're referring to the bulbs and not the entire assembly:

First, you have to remove the turn signal assembly. For this, you need a small star shaped screwdriver and remove the 1 screw holding the turn signal in place. Pull straight out and remove the bulbs from the signal assembly by turning the sockets about 1/4 turn. Set that aside.
Second, there's 3 bolts that will be holding the headlight assembly in place. One is accessable from the engine compartment with the hood up. The other two are located under the headlight. (All of them face the front of the car). Remove all three and the headlight will be able to swing out, giving you access to the sockets and bulbs. Remove the bulb connector from the bulb first, then twist the bulb retaining ring and pull the bulb straight out after the ring is off.
Reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.

If you're looking to completely remove the entire headlight assembly, it's the same process, but the piece that lets the headlight swing out (instead of coming off completely) must be removed. It's a simple plastic ball and socket swivel. Just tug hard and the ball will come loose from the socket.

How do you replace the front turn signal on a 2005 Buick Terraza?


Changing front, right turn signal on 2005 Buick Terraza: Open hood; when facing the front of vehicle, the right turn signal is on the passenger side (left). The headlight assembly needs to be removed to easily reach the turn signal. On my vehicle, there is a 10 mm screw on the left side. Remove it. There is L-shaped pin on the right side of the headlight assembly. Swing the pin counter-clockwise (to the left). Pull the pin straight up to remove. The headlight assembly is now loose, but there is a pin snapped in a socket on the back of the assembly that still holds the assembly. Pull the headlight assembly hard and straight to the front of the vehicle. When it snaps loose, the assembly is now held just by the rubber gasket surrounding the assembly. You need to gently work the right side of the gasket out of the grill cowling. The assembly should pull straight out. The wires are long enough to lay the headlight assembly in the engine compartment. Finally, the turn signal is now accessible. Twist the light holder counter-clockwise and pull out the light holder. Change the bulb. Do not punch your man-card for credit until you have successfully reinstalled the headlight assembly. It goes back in a little easier the second time. Once you have put the L-pin in place, the screw back, and successfully tested the lights, you can now punch your man-card.

I give the mechanical engineers and designers a D-minus instead of an F only because I was successful on the first try. No light bulb on anything commonly used by people should be this hard to figure out.

How do you change a headlight on a 2001 oldsmobile silhouette??


I don't know if you mean the headlight bulb, or the headlight.

When you open the hood and look at the headlight assembly. At the top between the turn signal there is a black plastic wing nut. Unscrew that wing nut to remove the side marker light. After removing that nut persuade it to slide forward. That's the only thing that locks it in. Untwist the socket to replace the turn signal bulb. Since that is out now...There are two more Wing nuts just like the first one that hold the headlight assembly in place. (The black plastic piece the headlight is mounted to) Remove these two wing nuts and lift up on the whole assembly. Those are the only things that lock it into place. Once you slide it off the studs the wing nuts were on. Unplug the plug from the back of the light (use a flat screwdriver to lift the tab a little). Twist the round plastic ring that holds the bulb in. The bulb should pull out now. Don't touch the new bulb with your fingers as it is a halogen bulb and the oil on your fingers will cause a hot spot on it, causing it to fail SOON. If you happen to touch the glass part of the headlight bulb, clean it with rubbing alcohol. Reverse the steps...go eat dinner.

Need to change left front turn single whole ***. come out?


  1. Go to the front of the car and open the hood. Locate the two screws that mount the headlight assembly to the front of the vehicle. The screws are on top of the assembly at both ends. Use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the screws. Pull the headlight assembly straight off of the Intrepid.
  2. Locate the turn signal electrical connector at the outer side of the headlight assembly. There is a thick wire coming out of it. Turn the electrical bulb socket counterclockwise to take it out of the headlight assembly.

How to replace 1998 Ford Contour headlights (with diagram)


Step 1
Remove your Contour's front grille. You can do this by raising the hood and removing two screws that are located on top of the grille.

Step 2 Remove the headlight assembly. The headlight assembly is held into the front of your Contour by three screws. Two screws will be located on top of the assembly, and one on the bottom.

Step 3 Replace the headlight assembly, if necessary. If you are only changing individual bulbs, make sure you replace the correct bulbs. Each assembly holds three light bulbs, including the bright, dim and turn signal bulbs.

Step4 Replace the headlight assembly and reattach the three screws to hold it in place.

Step5 Replace the front grille of your Contour and the two screws that hold it onto the front of the car.


  • It is usually a good idea to replace bulbs together (in pairs). This will allow the bulbs to wear at the same rate.
  • If you choose to replace only the individual light bulbs, do not touch the new light bulbs. The contact of your skin on the bulbs will cause the light bulbs to burn out much sooner.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

Signal light change.


There is one 10mm Bolt on the top of the light and three 10mm nuts on the back of the light. You will need to use a 10mm wrench to remove the nuts because they are in a tight place.

After the 1 bold and 3 nuts are removed, the entire headlight assemble will pull straight out. You don't need to take the headlight bulb out because there should be enough wire to pull out the assembly far enough to get to the turn signal bulb. This will allow you to change the turn signal bulb which should be a 4157 amber bulb.

When putting the headlight assemble back in the van, there is a plastic pin in headlight assembly that goes into a hole in the front fender for alightment. Don't force the light. Take your time and the headlight assembly will go back in the van smoothly.

1997 Chevrolet Cavalier. Left front turn signal light out. How do I get to it to change?


1. Raise the hood 2. Remove the long black plastic piece that extends from the top of one headlight to the top of the other. Pulling out the tops of the plastic pop rivets usinging diagonal cutter pliers to grip them (don't cut them) works well. 3. Remove the headlight assembly by removing the two 13mm shouldered bolts. Lift the headlight assembly out of the way but you don't need to disconnect it. 4. Reach down and turn the bulb socket 1/4 turn counter clockwise and then down to remove. The bulb pulls straight out.
Note: Removing the mud shield in the wheel well doesn't work, as there are intake ducts blocking access to the turn lamp assembly.
