Hello, this is a easy fix. Grab the black connector with one hand and hold the black rubber part in the middle near the connection. Pull gently on the connector while holding the rubber part near the middle, your goin to feel the headligh kinda move as you pull. Its probable going to be a little hard to get off, gently wiggle the connector and pull while holding. Once the connector comes off remove the rubber boot, now you will see a small bar push down (or up) on it to release it from the lock position. The headlight will come right out, not the position of the connectors when removing the light bulb, replacement light will only go in one way. Hope this is helpful.

Why do all lights work except low beam driver side head lamp?


Seems like if your other low beam is lit, there's something wrong with the new bulb. Make sure it's the exact type needed, and switch the working bulb from the pass. side to drivers side to check.

How do you change the low beam headlight on drivers side of suzuki kazahi


You need to remove the front bumper.
It is easy but tricky.
Once the bumper is off you need to remove all the plastic head lamp.
You'll see the light bulbs once you remove a round rubber cover in the back of the plastic head lamp.

How to change headlights


this is regarding low beam head lamps. i have a 2006 kia optima and to change the head lamp, there is a cap right behind the head lamp area that screws off. remove the connection to the head lamp. oncece the cap is unscrewed and the connection is removed, you will see a clamp that keeps the lamp bulb in place. save yourself the headache and do not unscrew this clamp as it is aggrivating to screw back into place....on the opposite side of the screw u can push on the clamp ( i think it is downward) and it will swivel one side away from the lamp bulb, just that side, while the screw side keeps the clamp in place. remove the bulb, place your new on into place (there are 3 notches on the metal part of the lamp bulb that sit into place. take a look and u will see how they need to sit.) replace the clamp, replace the connection and screw cap back on and you are finished. the first time took a minute to figure out, but once u do it, it only takes about 5 minutes to do after that first initial time.

How to change front driver side turn signal bulb


For Front turning signal, you need to remove the whole head light system to get to turn signal. 4 screws attach it to the car's body. Make sure to remove the lamps first and disconnect the switch for the turn signal lamp. Just replaced it last week myself.
