SOURCE: leaking on the right side

If it leaks after running the air conditioner it is perfectly normal and you do not need to fix anything, it is from the condensation drain line and it needs to drain to prevent water from leaking inside the vehicle.

Headlights not working

The new headlights, probably blew the fuse check the fuse and relay if so get a bigger fuse to run the new headlights. Remember when replacing any light in your vehicle to not touch the glass part of the bulb with your bare fingers..

Headlight goes on and off jeep2010 wrangler Sahara

Hi There,

Thanks for the question,
I had a similar problem with the headlights turning on and off.

What you need to do is just check the earthing inside the bonnet , usually it's to the right hand side when you stand facing your vehicle and is placed near one of the headlights.

Just ensure that the earthing is tight and not loose and your problem will be solved.

If you don't want to do it yourself, just don't worry go to a mechanic and tell him to fix the earthing as your headlight is turning on and off and he will know that you are knowledgeable and won't take advantage of you by cheating you.

If this does not work then just check one of the electric cutouts that belong to the headlights and then just ensure that they are fitted perfectly.

Hope this helps.

I have a 1996 Mazda protege I'm having trouble

Most bulb sockets can experience wear, and tear...after carefully removing the bulb, inspect the contact points inside the socket for cleanliness or damage...the natural grease on our hands can affect the bulb life on most bulbs...especially headlight bulbs so wear soft gloves and do not touch the clear element of the bulb...BE SURE to use bulb/socket lubricant when reassembling...this assures good contact and helps to weatherproof...this lubricant in small pouches is about $2. Worst case scenario...replace the problem, or from a salvage yard. Hope this helps.

Head lamp harness

No - the worst electrical problem that the headlamp harness could cause is to short itself to ground somehow (bare wire, unplugged & turned on, etc), which would blow the headlight fuse.
However, dashboard problems can cause headlight problems, since the headlight switch is located in the dash.
The common point between the headlight problems, dashboard problems, and "electrical problems" would be the under-dash wiring and/or wiring harness from ECC (Engine Control Computer, aka "the car's computer) to the dashboard - check here first for grounding/shorting problems, or water leaking out of the in-dash vents onto a wiring harness.

How to change the headlight bulbs on my 2007 mazda 6

  • Disconnect the negative battery cable.

  • Now look at the diagram below and notice where the arrow points. You want to carefully press down (don't break that tab) and remove the back cover to the headlight assembly


  • Now get behind the headlight (under the hood) and the top wires are your headlights.

  • Gently tug it out and pop the old light strait out.

  • When replacing the new bulb in the socket don't touch it with your fingers or the oils on your finger will make that bulb blow within seconds. Wipe it real clean with a clean cloth if you accidenatly do.

  • Reverse the rest of the steps to complete.

  • Hope this helps.

Need to adjust the low beams on my '02 Hyundai

Headlight adjustment is fairly straight forward, you will need to park the car on a level surface with a fence or wall 25 feet away and a reference point for measurements to the right or left of the car. First measure from the reference point to the center line of the car then transfer that to the wall, second, measure from the center of the car to the center of the headlights and transfer those to the wall, third, measure from the ground to the center of the headlights and transfer that to the wall. Once all of the reference points have been transferred, adjust the left (driver's side) headlight so that the most intense part of the beam is 2 inches below and 2 inches to the right of the left mark, the right (passenger side) headlight should be adjusted so that it will be 2 inches below and 1 inch to the left of the mark. If done correctly, you will have very good night vision without blinding oncoming traffic.

P.S. Please note that any heavy objects in the car will be a factor in correct headlight adjustment, have the car loaded as it will be normally used.

The black, round "collar that holds the headlight

The part you are referring to is the headlight socket. The link below will take you the part in question. This is what to look for. Most auto parts stores should carry this part.
