Reach behind the headlight and you will find a (cap). twist it off counter clockwise then remove bulb. detach bulb from wire harness. Attach new bulb to wire harness and gently insert back into headlight. Reattach the cap and viola! You may have a slightly different set-up or actual clips behind the bulbs. If this is the case just grab both clips like tweezers push down slightly and pinch together to get the bulb out. Be sure to remove anything that may be in the way of the bulbs before you start. Just remember not to touch the glass part of the new bulb. Also... If you purchase the bulb from and autoparts store, sometimes they will replace for free. hope this helps!

Replace bulb headlight


Most of the headlights do not unbolt to change bulbs. If it's a blown bulb you're trying to replace, look on the back side of the headlight housing. There should be a plug with wires attached going into the back. This plug should twist either to the right,left or up or down. Once you've twisted this plug out of the headlight housing you'll see the bulb you need to replace. Unplug the wire harness from the blown bulb and place it into the new bulb, being careful not to touch the new bulb with your bare hands as any oil or other contamination will cause these bulbs to blow as soon as they are turned on. Place the new bulb with harness back into the socket in headlight housing and twist into position.

Headlight for 2004 trail blazer


If it's just a bulb replacement open the hood and with one hand push in on the headlight, with the other hand inside, pull up on the white plastic retaining clip. This will release the bulb. Pull it out forward, then replace with new bulb (be careful not to touch the new bulb, oil from the hands can cause bulb to burst.)

If you need to replace the whole headlight assembly I would try buying used for a better price.

How do you replace the headlight on a 2002 Daewoo Lanos


Hi there, together with providing you the solution to the problem, I also took the liberty of going one step further in giving you steps on how to remove the headlight bulb.

  • Find the hood release handle and activate it, the hood should pop open.
  • Once the hood is popped open locate the hood secondary or safety latch and release it. Then finish opening the hood.
  • Locate and remove mounting clips for any plastic shields that cover the headlight lens mounting screws or clips.
  • Some headlight bulbs can be replaced by simply grasping the bulb socket behind the headlight lens and turn it counter clockwise to remove it. This will expose the headlight bulb.
  • If the headlight bulb socket is not accessible the headlight lens may need to be remove or obstructions behind the bulb removed to gain access to the headlight bulb socket.
  • To remove the headlight lens remove all mounting screws and clips that hold the headlight lens in place.
  • After the headlight housing has been removed from it's mounts, release the headlight bulb from the headlight lens housing (turn counter clockwise) the bulb will then come out of the headlight assembly. Once removed, visually verify that the replacement bulb is exactly the same as the failed bulb before to ensure a proper repair.
  • Clean the headlight lens free from all debris to help maintain the seal from the bulb to the lens. This will keep moisture out of the lens.
  • Install the new headlight bulb by turning the retainer ring or bulb clockwise.
  • Re-install the headlight lens housing and reinstall electrical connector.
  • Re-install plastic covers.
After the job is complete turn the ignition key to the "on" position and activate the headlight switch. Observe the newly replaced headlight bulb to ensure proper operation.

Glad to be of help!!!

(DIY Complexity: Easy / Time: 0.9 hour)

Parts:
1. Headlight Bulb

Tools:
1. Screwdriver
2. 1/4 in. Drive Ratchet
3. Socket Set

Steps:
Step 1 Open the hood and locate the headlight assembly.

How do i replace/remove the headlights from a 97 accord?


  1. Locate the headlight bulb that needs to be replaced. NOTE: It may be necessary to remove a component or the composite headlight assembly to gain access to the bulbs.
  2. Turn the headlights off.
  3. Detach the two prong connector from the base of the headlight bulb.
  4. Twist the bulb counterclockwise to unlock it from the headlight housing, then carefully withdraw the bulb from the housing. WARNING
    Do not touch the glass part of the bulb with your fingers. The pads of your fingers contain oils that will cause premature bulb failure. To install:

  6. Attach the 2 prong connector to the bottom of the bulb.
  7. Turn the headlight switch on to make sure the bulb works, then turn the switch off.
  8. Install any components that were removed to get to the headlight bulb.
