How do I change the blinker light in a 2008 suburban?

Do I remove the two ten mm bolts on the headlight assembly and then slide the whole thing up out of the notch on the right hand side? When I do this it appears to be held on the lower left side?

    I found the bolt on the front of light assembly on top, I found the bolt on the top. I cannot find the third bolt you describe as on the "back" of the assembly. Where is it? How is it accessed?

    My posting should have said that this is the front right hand blinker light, not the back, on a 2008 suburban.

    I am attempting to change the yellow bulb in the blinker on the front right (passenger) side of the vehicle. There are two 10mm bolts on the top and top front of the assembly. I have removed the air breather cover in an attempt to locate a third connection point but cannot find one. The headlight assembly moves from the right hand side, but appears to be attached on the back left as you face the vehicle. I have not been able to find a diagram or directions.

Get under the car reach behind the bumper reach towards the blinker then find the wire that goes to it. Then twist the end left and pull out the light bulb in and and replace. For the headlight blinker you have to unscrew the headlight with either a 10 or 13mm socket...pull it out...then twist the end that goes into the blinker left...replace bulb....put things back together....done.

Hi
Inside the hatch behind the light clusters, you will find the retaining nuts. Test 1:
Remove bulbs from left front, and left rear. Switch em. See if the
problem follows the bulb, or stays with the wire.

Test 2:
To use meter, turn key on, switch on the left blinker. PUll the rear
bulb out, and set your meter to DC volts (scale that will read 12
volts). Negative (black wire on the tester) touches the outer ring of
the socket, and one of the buttons in the bottom inside of the socket
should be getting 12 volts plus (red tester wire). And the 12 volts
should blink on and off.

If the socket is getting power, then it's likely a bulb problem.

If the socket isn't getting power, try put the black lead to something
metal like a screw. If it NOW gets power, you have a bad ground.

You will need only a flat head screwdriver and needle nose pliers (the pointy type pliers, although the blunt end ones might work, the needle nose will be easier)

  • Remove the plastic panel around the trunk latch (the metal loop in the back of the trunk). This is held on by 5 metal clips in the back of the plastic, pull evenly from top and bottom and you will be able to tell where they are. Move your hands (or a long screwdriver) behind the panel, gradually easing it out so as not to break the clips or plastic. They are fairly strong so you can use quite a bit of force. You will probably wind up with some attached to the plastic and some still in the metal of your trunk. Remove the ones from the trunk with the needle nose pliers and screwdriver, instert the tips of the needle nose pliers behind the clips and try to pinch the back together while levering out with the screwdriver on the outside. Some will come out easily and others will be a pain in the ****. Slide the clips onto the removed plastic panel so you don't lose them and it's easier to put the panel back on.

  • Remove the trunk carpeting. This is waaaay easier than the clips and only takes a second. There is a plastic plug/screw about halfway between the top of where the plastic panel was and the top of the light. Pull the carpet back and ease the plastic screw out with the pliers or the screwdriver, you don't need to turn it, just pull it out.

  • Remove the bulb housing. The larger bottom one is brake light and signal light (make sure your bulb has two filaments (wires) inside it). The plastic that the wiring attaches to just turns (towards you I believe) and comes out, TURN IT BY THE PLASTIC ON THE OUTSIDE, it may be a bit sticky, but again, it can take a fair degree of force before you will break anything.

  • Replace the bulb. DO NOT TRY TO PULL IT OUT BY THE BULB, IT COULD BREAK AND WILL HURT A LOT. Use the pliers to grip the plastic base of the bulb and pull it out, put the new one in by pushing down on the plastic at each side at the same time, it should sort of click into place, you will know when it's in right.

  • Test it before you put your trunk back together! You don't need to start the car, simply turning on your hazard lights or turning the ignition back to accessories and turning yousr signal light will let you know.

  • Put it back together again. Screw the light socket back in, put your plastic screw in, make sure the carpeting goes UNDER the rubber around the outside. Line up your plastic panel and clips with the 5 holes, there are two long plastic pieces that poit out further than the clips for this, when those are aligned your clips should be too. Push the panel in and hit it with your hand where the clips are to make sure they are in good.

How to change stop light globe on 2008 hyundai getz


Remove the two 10 mm (head) bolts that hold the stop light. This bolts are between the tail light assembly and the tail gate weatherstrip. You can see them without having to remove anything.

By using a masking tape wrapped flat screwdriver, pry "back" the whole tail light assembly. Once out, you can twist the brake light (or reverse, or turn signal) bulb plug, remove and replace the bulb.

The Getz uses standard two filament brake globes (1/4 turn to install).

Need to replace low beam light in my 2002 GMC Safari Van how do I do it?


Open the hood & near the top of the headlight you will see 2 bolts (10mm), remove them. You will notice the whole headlight assembly is loose from the top. Look down into the headlight assembly to the left & you will see another 10mm bolt that connects the outside light fixture. Remove the bolt & that light fixture will fall out (top first). Behind that light fixture you will see your last bolt when you look at the front of the vehicle. Remove it & now the entire light assembly will slide out & give you access to the both high beam & low beam bulbs. Hope this helps.

Change front passanger blinker


Open the hood and look for a small screw or bolt holding the signal light assembly on by the fender.
Remove this and pull just the signal light assembly straight forward.
Not the whole headlight assembly.
Twist and turn the bulb socket to remove the light from the rear of the light assembly.
Check the # and color of your bulb and get a replacement.
Push in and turn to remove the bulb.

How do i get to the blinker bulb on the 97 olds 88ls in the fron?


To change the blinker or headlight bulb on an 1997 Oldsmobile 88: Open the hood, remove the plastic cover thing so that you can see the housing for the light. On the back side of the housing there are three clips, remove those (I was able to remove them with just my fingers). Once the clips are removed the whole headlight slides out the front of the car. Now you can easily replace any of the blown bulbs.

How to replace headllight lamp


I know your frustration! I cannot believe the complexity of changing the headlights. Chevy has tried to make this a dealer item only just to change a headlight bulb. I will try to explain the procedure unfortunately I do not have photos. First you will need to remove the wheel well liner (two bolts and two plastic push pins). Pull the wheel well housing back (you will need to turn the wheel/tire to gain access) and using a 7mm socket remove the plastic support piece that holds the bumper in place (two bolts). Pull the corner of the bumper down until you can locate the bottom bracket of the headlight assembly that is held by a 10mm bolt. Remove it. (Oh did I mention this is a two person job!) Next move to the front of the vehicle (hood up) and remove all the 10mm bolts holding the upper part of the grill (I think there are eight of them). Now remove the obvious top two bolts on the headlight assembly! With two people - one to work the headlight assembly and one to push down the bumper and pull out on the grill assemble, slowly and carefully pull the headlight assembly straight forward. You will need to be mindfully of the small tabs on the headlight assembly that like to get caught on bumper/grill. If you are just replacing the bulb, you should be able to move the headlight assemble far enough forward to gain access to the bulbs without totally removing the headlight assembly. What a ***** job! SHAME on GM.
