Headlamp assembly question

2001 Dodge Ram 1500 2WD: The plastic headlamp bulb cover has become yellowed and dulled. Is there a clear plastic replacement or do I have to buy the entire headlamp/side direction signal assembly? If there is a replacement, what do you suggest? Does the headlamp alone come out or do I have to remove the entire assembly?

Thanks!

Travis

Two ways to fix, walmart will do it here for 40.00 while you shop, but if you are up too it I can tell you how. You can do it yourself with the help of some 1200 grit wet sanding paper and a buffing compound and buffer. It's not hard but if your don't have these thing already available to you walmart is the way to go.

Trying to replace headlights and cannot get cover off...


Hi there,

In order to replace the headlamp bulbs make sure your headlight is off. Firstly, remove the bolt from the headlight housing. At the back of the headlamp, pry up and remove the two retrianer pins to release the headlamp assembly from the vehicle and pull headlamp forward then remove the protective dust shield from the housing by turning the dust shield counterclockwise when viewed from the rear. After that, you can disconnect electrical connector from the bulb by pulling rearward and then remove the bulb retaining ring by rotating it counterclockwise.

Furthermore, remove the old pulling it straight out of lamp assembly. To install the new bulb, handle halogen headlamp bulb carefully grasping the bulb only by its plastic base and do not touch the glass ol from your hand which may cause the bulb to break. This way, next time you want to install a new bulb in lamp assembly, you can do that by pushing it straight in with the flat surface of bulb's plastic base facing upward. You may also need to turn the bulb slightly to align the grooves in plastic base with the tabs in lamp assembly.

Install the bulb retaining ring over the plastic base and lock the ring by rotating clockwise until it snaps into place. Then connect the electrical connector to bulb. Install the protective dust shield and lock the shield by rotating it clockwise until it locks into place. Also, carefully position the headlamp assembly onto the vehicle and hold the headlamp assembly snugly against the vehicle and install the retainer pins straight down to lock lamp into place.

Before reinstalling the bolt make sure the retainer pins are fully seated and install the bolt on the headlamp housing. Turn the lights on and make sure they work well and that they are aligned correctly. If you can do all these, that is fine. In any case you can not do this, then take the vehicle go to an auto parts store. I am sure they will be of help.

Good luck!

How to change headlight lamp in 2005 Pontiac g6


To change the bulbs you need to first remove the 5 plastic pop screws on the front bumper. They're spread out at the top of the bumper right under the hood. Once you get those out, you have to remove the two hex bolts on each headlight. Then it gets tricky. You need to pull the light towards the front of the car until it pops out of the ball-bearing type mount on the fender. Once that pops out, you have to pull the front bumper forward while maneuvering the headlight out towards the front.

As per the manual it says as follows:---

Open the hood.

Hold the headlamp to prevent damage to the headlamp or to the fascia. Remove the bolts from the headlamp assembly. Remove the push-in-retainers across the front fascia. Remove the headlamp assembly. Lift the headlamp upward to release the locating tab from the front edge of the fender.

Disconnect the electrical connector from the headlamp assembly.

Remove the headlamp bulb access cover by rotating the headlamp bulb access cover counterclockwise, if necessary.

Remove the headlamp bulb from the housing by rotating the socket counterclockwise, if necessary.

Disconnect the headlamp bulb electrical connector, if necessary.

Remove the park/turn bulb access cover by rotating the cover counterclockwise, if necessary.

Remove the park/turn bulb from the housing by rotating the socket counterclockwise, if necessary.

Gently pull the park/turn bulb from the socket, if necessary. Install the park/turn bulb into the bulb socket.

Install the park/turn bulb socket into the headlamp housing by rotating the socket clockwise.

Install the park/turn bulb access cover by rotating the cover clockwise.

Connect the headlamp bulb to the headlamp electrical connector.

Install the headlamp bulb into the headlamp housing. Rotate the socket clockwise until locked.

Install the headlamp bulb access cover by rotating the cover clockwise.

Position the headlamp assembly to the vehicle. Lift the headlamp upward to release the locating tab to the front edge of the fender.

Install the bolts to the headlamp assembly. Tighten the bolts to 2 N·m (18 lb in).

Install the push-in-retainers across the front fascia.

Close the hood.
