How do I replace a front headlight?

Could you supply a drawing of all the parts and how to safely remove and replace the passenger-side front headlight? I don't want to break anything when I pry the old one out.

There are two seperate sockets for a 2000 celica (one for high beams/ day time runing lights and the low beams, which kick on at times of darkness) The head light bulb is at the top of the head light assembly behind the projector lamps (the part that looks like a giant clear marble) First disconnect the plug for the bulb. It just disconnects like a wall socket. Take off the black circular rubber protecter that surrounds the bulb in its housing. you have to reach in and push the retaining pin that holds the bulb in place. the pin fits in like a sideways version of a safety pin. you just need to push it in and up. the clip will swing open and you can take out the bulb. the bulb is attached to another housing piece. you will notice that the replacement bulbs do not have this piece. you just unplug the bulb and reattach the adapter to the new bulb. (DO NOT TOUCH THE BULB. it will go out once turned on because the oils from your fingers will heat the bulb and burn it out) place the bulb back in place. you may have to rotate it until it fits. there are grooves in the housing and the adapter piece that will make it fit in perfectly. close the retaining clip, replace the rubber protector. it tells you which side needs to be on the top. plug the light back in and your good to go. repeat on the passenger side. only difference is you have to take off the engine plastics that cover the left side. you can do this by taking off the front plastic just over the bumper and the left side will come off as well. the retaining clips just need to be pushed in the center. they'll pop out after you push that center button.

I bought a 2004 liberty that was wrecked in front on passenger side the battery is fully charged but i have no poiwer to anything im lost could the sensors on back of core support cause this problem


No power to anything will be the battery or the battery cables. Make SURE the battery is fully charged. Have you tested it with a proper amperage draw? Make sure the battery positive is clean and tight as well as the battery negative hooked up properly from the battery to the vehicle ground and is clean and tight

My 2007 eclipse passenger highbeams stopped working (headlights still work), I replaced the bulb and it did not fix the problem. My headlights now have gone out on the passenger side also and I repla


More than likely the problem is with the control switch that turns on the high beams, that switch is mounted on the steering column, the high electrical current load that the high beams draw burns the contact inside the switch and the end result is what is going on with your car. To replace the dimmer/headlight switch you will need to remove the trim around the steering column to access the switch for replacement.

You will need to remove the passenger side headlamp assembly. Once it is out you can drill some small holes into the front support to gain access to the relay.

How to change the headlight bulb on the passenger side of 2005 equinox


Step 1 - Raise the hood and remove the 4 push-in retainers that go along the top of the front grille. These are each two part retainers - remove both parts by prying with a small screwdriver. Nothing comes off here - this just makes the grille loose for maneuvering the headlight assembly around to get it in and out.
Step 2 - Remove the "bow tie" trim piece that runs from headlight to headlight thru the middle of the front grille - it is cheap plastic so do this carefully (mine looks like chrome with the Chevy 'bow tie' in the center). To do this, use a flat-bladed screwdriver and a rag (to protect the headlight). This trim part comes off - I started at the driver's side and work toward the passenger side. Place the rag below the trim on the headlight. Carefully pry up on the trim piece with the screwdriver and work the trim with your fingers until it pops out of the headlight assembly catch. There are lock tabs on both the top and bottom of this trim piece when you get to the grille area. Work your way down the trim piece by prying wherever you locate a tab and protecting with the rag as you go until the "bow tie" trim piece comes off. The headlight assembly catches are the tightest. Set it off to the side so you don't step on it or scratch it.
Step 3 - Unbolt the light assembly. There are two hex-headed screws on top and one 10MM down inside (towards the center of the car). Remove these 3 bolts.
Step 4 - Remove the assembly - There are 2 guide tabs in the lower outside part of the light assembly (opposite the 10MM screw). Wiggle the assembly while pulling out (forward). When the tabs clear, lift up on the headlight and it should be easy to work the rest of the way out to gain access to the headlamp.

Step 5 - remove and replace the bulb - it is halogen so you DO NOT touch it with your fingers because the finger oil will cause a hot spot and the bulb will burn out fast. Handle the new bulb with a clean cloth - a clean sock works well.

I have to replace the ballast for the HID headlights on my 2004 XC70 volvo and it is under the headlight assembly. I just need assistance on how to remove the passenger side headlight assembly


You need to remove the front bumper. Five push clips along the hood line, remove the headlight wipers (if equipped), one T25 screw in the front of each fender well, then two 12mm bolts under the headlights (1 each side). Then there are 4 10mm bolts holding the headlight in.

Headlight Issue


No, you just might have to take out the battery. I was able to do it without taking the battery out, but only because I was being stubborn. There is one thing I definitely have to say is that you should change both headlights at the same time. My driver side headlight was the first one to go and I didn't listen and just changed that one, days later my passenger side one went out!
