Sorry, I have the same problembut the answers are not what you want to hear.
1) The headlight assemblies are mounted to the front Bumper and grill support "system". To remove the light assemblies there is a "hidden" mounting system that cannot be accessed while the bumper is mounted on the jeep.
2) Most Hayes/Chilton and other POS (..worthless) consummer repair manuals do an extremely poor job of explaining (thats a laugh) or showing (again the pix and diagrams ****) how to remove the bumper.
3) I suggest going to the local Jeep dealer and spending $60-75 for an official Shop mechanics manual for a slightly better explanation and illustration.
4) If you are patient, mechanically talented, and can do without the Jeep for a day, you can (a) remove the grill, (b) remove the radiator 'retainer' top (the metal U that looks like its the top part of the radiator, (c) use #10mm sockets and box wrenches to remove the tubular bumper mounts from the grill area, (d) use pliers to compress the push-in pins on the very bottom of the bumper (below the crack pulley) and remove the plastic lower bumpersection. ** That is as far as I have gotten**.

How do I change the entire headlight assembly on a 2008 Mazda CX 9.


There are a few installation bolts that are accessible from the top and side but you will need to remove the entire front bumper to access two of the lower ones. Here are some pics from the factory manual. First shows location of the headlight bolts and fasteners. Others show how to remove the bumper. 10mm socket should handle all the bolts you need to remove. Disconnect the battery prior to starting and headlights off. HID headlight voltage is around 25,000 volts so you want to ensure no power to the system before performing repairs.

My car 2003 altima I need change light bulb. need know how to remove head light to change the bulb.


You don't have to remove the headlight to change the bulb. The bulb can be removed from the back of the headlight, usually by turning the bezel ring that holds the bulb onto the headlight housing. Just make sure you do not touch the glass part of the bulb while replacing it or it will burn out again fast.

HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE BULBS OF THE FOG LIGHTS?


The fog lights on most vehicles sit directly underneath the headlight bulbs. The ballast and wiring work just like the headlights, so changing them takes not much time. The procedure to change the fog light is as follows:-- 1) Open the hood and reach down underneath the headlights to unplug the electrical plug from the fog light assembly. Squeeze the top of the release tab and pull the connection off the bulb's ballast. 2)Turn the fog light counterclockwise to remove it from the fog light housing. 3)Install the new fog light bulb.Then connect electrical plugs properly. 4) Test the fog lights by turning it ON. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Signal light change.


There is one 10mm Bolt on the top of the light and three 10mm nuts on the back of the light. You will need to use a 10mm wrench to remove the nuts because they are in a tight place.

After the 1 bold and 3 nuts are removed, the entire headlight assemble will pull straight out. You don't need to take the headlight bulb out because there should be enough wire to pull out the assembly far enough to get to the turn signal bulb. This will allow you to change the turn signal bulb which should be a 4157 amber bulb.

When putting the headlight assemble back in the van, there is a plastic pin in headlight assembly that goes into a hole in the front fender for alightment. Don't force the light. Take your time and the headlight assembly will go back in the van smoothly.
