They are replaced from inside the engine compartment... you may have to remove the battery if it's on that side... do not touch the bulb as that will shorten it's life


Please take a moment to rate this solution... thanks

2002 pontiac grand prix gt. High beams are dimmer

A loose ground wire to the headlight will keep it dim,Or a headlight adjustment will bring the headlight up.If you can have your headlight turned on a garage door or something at night,and then watch as you change your headlights from low beam to high beam which ones are higher.the last thing to verify is that your high beam headlights are not the plastic lens type that turn dull which cuts the light power.

I want to change my headlights on a 1997 grand marquis

The headlights are a sealed unit. All you can change is the bulb, which is done from the rear of the headlight. You squeeze the nylon lock on the bulb socket, turn it counter clock wise, and pull the socket out. Then pull the bulb, and replace it. Be careful not to touch the new bulb with bare fingers. The natural oil on your fingers will cause premature bulb failure.
