How to replace head lamp?


Replacing the headlamp on your Hyundai resembles replacing a light bulb. Open the hood and just behind the headlamp, you will see a hard plastic cover. Twist the cover to open, allowing access to the bracket that is holding the existing bulb in place. Once you've access to the bracket, you will see it forms a loop. Squeeze the loop together to get it to disengage from the headlamp housing. The headlamp should be easily removed by hand at this point. Replace the bad bulb with it's replacement (try not to over handle the new bulb and handle around it's base whenever possible) and place the housing back into it's corresponding hole. Now reattach the bracket, (again you will need to squeeze it together). Once the bracket it again attached (bulb + housing should be secure, if not repeat last steps until it is tight) replace the hard plastic cover and you're done. Best of luck and thank you for using Fixya!

I recently had some front drivers side damage to my car. The head light was smashed and the wheel well pushed in far enough that it occasionally rubs against the wheel when I make right turns. I've managed...


Mr Pinske,

The rear running lights aren't on the same circuit as the headlight(s). To get the car legal for
night driving, replace the broken headlight (both need to work to drive legally at night),
and tackle the running lights as a separate project.
First thing to check on the running lights - the bulbs. Why: incandescent light bulbs that are
on at the time of an impact cannot withstand the impact and the filaments can fail, so fixing
your rear running lights may simply be a matter of replacing the two light bulbs.
If the bulbs are ok, your accident has caused a wiring fault, which you will locate
between the ignition switch and the rear running lights.
Here's the manual on how to replace the headlight:

  1. Remove the headlamp bulb retaining screws. Do not touch the two headlamp aiming screws, (at the top and side of the retaining ring), or the headlamp aim will have to be readjusted.

Fig. 4: Once the retaining ring screws are removed, the ring can be pulled away

  1. Pull the bulb and ring forward then separate them. Unplug the electrical connector from the rear of the bulb.

To install:

  1. Plug the new bulb into the electrical connector.
  2. Install the bulb into the retaining ring and install the ring and bulb.
  3. Install the trim panel.
Replacing the European style headlights is a slightly different procedure.

Left hand main head light not working. replacing light bulb did not help.


If you have headlamps failing and bulbs do not do the trick, the headlamp switch is your culprit and should be changed very very soon. Let me know if you need anything else. I have diagrams.

How do i replace the head light from a hyundai elantra 2004


Directly behind the bulb on the back of the headlamp assembly is a ring that you twist to lock and unlock the bulb. Twist the ring and it will slide back away from the headlamp assembly and you will be able to pull the bulb straight back and out. There is a little wire retainer that needs to be moved out of the way to facilitate disconnecting the headlamp from the connector/plug.

Do the reverse to replace the new bulb but be careful that you DO NOT touch the glass portion of the bulb or the oils from your fingers will overheat the bulb and cause early bulb failure.

When you slide the new bulb in, there is a little tab that helps you align the bulb properly so it will slide into the hold all the way. The retainer ring will not lock into place if the bulb is not sitting on the tab properly.

Just pay close attention to how the bulb comes out as you are removing it.

2003 trailblzer head light bulb replacement


on a 2003 Chevy Trailblazer, you have to remove the grill to access the back of the head lights. It takes a good pull (don't be afraid to use a little force). Pop the hood and there 4 metal pieces that slide up and several plastic pieces that pop up. You will see the lips on the metal slides (about an inch in width) and you pull those up to loosen the grill. There are 2 of these slides (one on each far side, almost hidden) that are hard to get your hand into that you might need a screwdriver or something for leverage to slide them up. Then pop up the plastic pieces holding the headlamps in place and with a little force pull the grill off.
Then you can access the back side of the headlamps to replace the bulbs.

Head light cover


Step1Your first stop should be to your local auto parts shop to get the bulbs you need. You'll need to pick up #9006 bulb, this one has a gray bas and is used for replacing the outside high beam. If you are looking to replace your inner low beams you'll need to pick up #9005 which has a black base. The bulbs should run you about $16.00 USD. Step2Alright once you have your bulb and are ready to replace it make sure you have popped the hood the release lever is on the inside of your vehicle. Step3While facing your car with the hood open, your going to remove the grill by pushing down on the two retainer clips which are on the top of the grill. You'll need a flathead screwdriver to help you with the rest of the retainer clips. There are two on the bottom ends of your grill one in the center and 2 on each side. Now you'll just pull up on the grill and it should come out easily. Step4On each side of the headlamp you should see a One inch long tab, when you pull up on the tabs it will release the headlamp so that you may pull the headlamp toward you. Pull the head lamp out. Step5There will be two round rubber caps at the rear of the headlamp. Remove the caps and then pull out the wire harness from the bulb.
Replace the bulb or bulbs and remember that #9006 has the gray base and is for the high beam and #9005 is for the low beam and has the black base. Reconnect the wire harness and replace everything to its original position and now you have a fixed headlamp! Congratulations!
