1) Left side is in front of the Airbox for the aircleaner. 2) Right side is in front of the battery (which HAS to be removed to replace the bulb).
3) Replacing the BULBS for $10 each is all you normally need to do - Unless the lights are Fogging and getting Condensation in them.
The you have to remove the bumper to repace the headlight assemblies. It is a pain. Costs $300-600 at a dealer.

Make sure the headlight switch is in the off position
1. Push in the two tabs on each side of the electrical connector and pull it away from the bulb.
2. Pull on the tabs of the rubber boot surrounding the assembly where the connector was, and pull it off the assembly.
3. You will see a retainer spring that attaches to one side of the bulb holder. The other side has two circular ends. Gently push the circular ends in (towards the front of the car) and then separate them. This allows the spring to open (towards the rear of the car) away from the bulb. you should be able to pull the bad bulb out. There are three tabs that you need to align to place the new bulb in. Take a moment to note where they are.
4. Do not touch the glass of the new bulb, the oil from your hands could cause it to burn out when you turn the light on! Place the new bulb into the socket, replace the spring attachment, replace the rubber boot and attach the electrical connector, and you are finished.
Test the light for proper operation.

HOW DO YOU REMOVE THE ASSEMBLY ON THE OLDS 95 SO I CAN CHAGNE THE LIGHTS.. I REMOVED TWO SCRES IN THE FRONT BU IT DOES NOT HELP TO REMOVE THE ASSEMBLY


Step 1:
Be sure the ignition key is not in the ignition, and the headlight switch is in the "Off" position.



Step 2:
Locate and remove the two headlight assembly screws on the top rail of the headlight assembly. Use the nut driver to remove them.


Step 3:
Place a rag between the headlight assembly and the bumper to protect the paint.


Step 4:
Wrangle the assembly outward. There is a guide pin behind the assembly on the fender side that holds it in place. This needs to be popped out of its socket in order to remove the headlight assembly. Pull slightly outward from the side, then forward and away from the car.


Step 5:
Locate the correct bulb socket (high-beam/low-beam). Disconnect the wire connector using the flathead screwdriver.


Step 6:
Turn the socket 1/4-turn counterclockwise to remove the socket from the headlight assembly. Remove the old bulb.


Step 7:
Insert the new bulb into the headlight assembly, and turn clockwise to lock into place. Be careful not to touch the glass bulb of the new socket. This could degrade headlight performance.


Step 8:
Reconnect the wire connector to the bulb. Test the light before replacing the headlight assembly, then turn off the lights again.


Step 9:
Reinsert the headlight assembly, making sure to align the guide pin into the socket. Replace the screws and tighten.

Replace headlight


Hello,
Follow the process below to replace your headlight:
  • Prop open your hood and locate the release lever for the headlight assembly, the lever is approximately 2 inches under the two upper mounting bolts that hold the fender in place.

  • Press down on the release lever and then push it back up. Pull the headlight assembly forward and slide it out of your Beetle.
  • Unplug the electrical connector from the backside of the assembly. Look toward the top part of the backside of the assembly for a black plastic tab. Push down on the tab and pull the headlight cover up and out.
  • Pull the retaining clip off of the old bulb and remove the old bulb from the assembly by pulling it straight out. Align the bulb correctly with the headlight assembly by matching the marked tabs on the bulb with the raised notches on the assembly. Set the bulb inside the assembly, pushing it down carefully.
  • Push the ends of the retaining clip into the small holes on either side of the new bulb and snap the headlight cover on to secure it.

Take care and good luck

When you turn the headlights on everything works but the headlights. If you hold the dimmer switch in the brights will come on. When you let it go the lights go out


Have you tried to change the headlights?

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Sealed Beam NOTE: If vehicle is equipped with headlamp doors turn the headlight switch ON. Open the hood and locate the power distribution center. This center is located in the front of the left front strut tower. Remove the cover from the center and remove the Headlamp Close Relay. This will prevent the headlamp doors from closing to provide easier servicing. Turn the headlight switch to OFF, then perform this repair.
  1. Remove the headlight bezel.
  2. Unhook the spring from the headlight retaining ring if so equipped.
  3. Unscrew the retaining ring and remove it. NOTE: Do not disturb the two long aiming screws. Conventional and Halogen headlamp sealed beams units are interchangeable in pairs, but it is recommended that they not be mixed together (one halogen and one conventional). It is fine to upgrade from conventional bulbs to halogen, but do not change from halogen bulbs to conventional bulbs, especially if the vehicle came equipped with halogen bulbs.
  4. Unplug the old sealed beam from the engine electrical wiring harness.
  5. Extract the old bulb from its mounting bracket. To install:
  6. Connect the replacement bulb and install it into the receptacle (check operation of headlight before completing repair).
  7. Install the retaining ring and secure it in place with the retaining screws. Connect the spring.
  8. Install the headlight bezel.
Aero Headlamp Aero headlamp systems use replaceable halogen bulbs that are mounted in aerodynamic, molded plastic lens reflector assemblies. NOTE: Lens fogging is a normal condition and does not require service, as moisture will vent from tubes behind the lens on Aero headlamp-type system. EXCEPT PREMIER AND MONACO It may be necessary to remove the entire headlamp assembly if enough access cannot be gained otherwise.
  1. Locate and remove the wire connector behind the headlamp assembly in the engine compartment. It may be necessary to remove certain items in the engine compartment to gain access to the bulb wires.
  2. Rotate the bulb retaining ring counterclockwise 1?4 turn and remove the ring, bulb and bulb holder from the lens assembly. The bulb holder has alignment notches. NOTE: Do not touch the bulb with bare fingers or any possibly oily surface, since reduced bulb life may result! Fig. 1: To remove the light bulb, first unplug the headlight electrical connector, then . . . 86726p13.jpg
    Fig. 2: . . . remove the light bulb socket retaining ring 86726p14.jpg
    Fig. 3: Rotate the light bulb socket 1?4 turn counter-clockwise, then pull it straight out of the lens assembly 86726p15.jpg
    To install:
  3. Wearing gloves or holding the replacement bulb with a cloth rag to keep oil off of the bulb surface, insert the bulb into the rear hole of the headlamp assembly. Make certain that the alignment grooves and tabs line up, push the light bulb into the assembly until seated flush, then turn the bulb clockwise 1?4 turn.
  4. Plug the electrical light bulb wiring harness into the new light bulb. Install any items removed from the engine compartment.
PREMIER AND MONACO Unlike the other vehicles covered by this manual, the removal and installation of the headlamp bulbs in the Premier and Monaco models requires the extraction of the entire headlamp lens assembly.
  1. Remove the grille-to-headlamp assembly attaching screws.
  2. Disconnect the headlamp aiming cable from the aiming screw end.
  3. Remove the headlamp assembly attaching bolts from above and behind the lamp assembly and separate the lamp assembly from the vehicle.
  4. Unplug the headlamp wire connector. NOTE: Do not touch the bulb with bare fingers or any possibly oily surface, since reduced bulb life may result!
  5. Rotate the socket counterclockwise 1?4 turn and pull the socket from the back of the lens assembly. Fig. 4: Remove the bezel retaining screws to loosen the headlamp assembly - Premier and Monaco 86726g91.gif
    Fig. 5: Detach the headlamp wire connector - Premier and Monaco 86726g92.gif
    Fig. 6: Once the headlamp assembly has been removed from the vehicle, the various light bulbs can easily be removed - Premier and Monaco 86726g93.gif
    To install:
  6. Wearing gloves or holding the replacement bulb with a cloth rag to keep oil off of the bulb surface, insert the bulb into the rear hole of the headlamp assembly. Make certain that the alignment grooves and tabs line up, push the light bulb into the assembly until seated flush, then turn the bulb clockwise 1?4 turn.
  7. Plug the headlamp wire connector back into the headlamp bulb.
  8. Install the assembly into the vehicle and secure in place with the mounting bolts.
  9. Connect the headlamp aiming cable to the aiming screw end.
  10. Install the grille-to-headlamp assembly attaching screws.

How do I change the Driver's side Front Headlight on the 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager?
