SOURCE: 2002 landrover freelander cooling fan assembly

The fan module is the big silver box with fins on it, right next to the fans. Just follow the fan cables and you will find it. Don't jumper the fans without unplugging or you may destroy the power transistors in the fan unit. Check the temperature sensor for the fan control unit - near the front of the engine - it should have some resistance - not be short circuit or open circuit, it is a sensor, not a switch. If short or open, that is likely to be the problem, otherwise, ensure that the control units have electrical supply, otherwise, it is very likely to be the control unit.

SOURCE: How to change the whole headlight assembly on a 05 Honda CRV

You have to remove the front bumper and grill etc

There are 5 bolts holding the headlight assembly in place. 2 at the top and 3 underneath.

Remove the plastic cross piece by prising out the clips and then the grille clips too then unbolt the bolts eithr side under the wheel arch. The bumper is still fastened using cips. Pull the bumper forward to unclip.

How to take passenger headlamp out of 328i bmw 2008 so it can be replaced?


2008 328i Passenger headlight assembly removal.

The headlight assembly is held in by 4 "star" bolts (size 25); 2 visible on the top of the assembly, 2 not visible or easily accessible.

The 2 bolts not so visible require that the front half of the wheel well come off and the front bumper or "nose" of the car.... The bumper is what needs to come off, but there are 2 bumper bolts hidden by the wheel well.

The wheel well is held in by 7mm bolts, 2 of which are actually bolted to the bumper on the bottom.

The front bumper is held on with 7mm bolts on the bottom edge, and star bolts, size 25, accessible on the top edge. (Hood open). Here were my steps.

1. Jack up the car on the side you are replacing, remove wheel.
2. Using 7mm socket, remove all the bolts to peel off the front half of the wheel well. With the wheel well out, you can see the 2 other star bolts holding the headlight assembly, but you can only remove one of them... even if you were good enough to get both removed, the headlight assemble will not push out through the bumper.... Keep going with bumper removal.
3. Remove 2, 7mm bolts of the front bumper that are now visible up near the outer edge of the headlight assembly.
4. At this point I removed the bumper's top edge start bolts and bottom edge 7mm bolts about 3/4 of the way across the bumper...
5. The bumper is very flexible and you can now pull it back , reach in, and get that last difficult star bolt on the headlight assembly....
6. Don't forget the one electrical connector....
7. I also recommend testing the new assembly by plugging it in before removing anything

Changing headlight bulb on mitsubishi starwagon express


ok look, I can't draw, I tried. Feel gratefull, I had to break parts of the car just find this out!
To do this you need to remove the headlight assembly, much the same as you'd do if you had to replace the whole assembly because of a crash.
  1. Remove small panel that runs under headlights and around the side car. NOTE: The indicator plastic light box (the whole thing) is actually a part of this seemingly small panel.
    * Inside the car, behind the door, near the hinge
    * 2 of them under the headlight, in the small gap between headlight and bumper (good luck mine were rusted and I had to forcefully remove the small panel.
  2. Now you will see 2 bolts holding the headlight assemply in place, undo them
  3. There is also a bolt UNDER the headlight assembly, remove it. Now the assembly is not attached to the car (other than by the electrical wires). I had to remove the whole bumper to find this out. When putting it all back together I didn't pay enough attention to note if that bottom bolt was accesible without removing the bumper. I am pretty sure it would be but may require some mechanical acrobatics.
  4. Now that the assembly is out you can unscrew the 2 large plastic caps on the back to access the bulbs (this is much the same as in the few modern sedans I have had to change light bulbs in). There is also a smaller screw in type plastic bulb holder I believe this was the parking light.
  5. There are 3 bulbs, I am assuming you have the ability to actually disconnect and remove them, if not maybe you sould be paying an auto electrician or a friend to do this.
NOTES:
  1. The issue I had was how to access the bulbs, it was not obvious to me, I expected that no immediate rear access would have made the bulb change occur on the OUTSIDE behind the glass, not removing the whole bloody head light assembly.
  2. Mine was an old 1992 piece of ****, breaking bolts and stuff if need be was fine by me as it would have still been road worth but having no headlight is not.
  3. On a 20 percent off store wide day I bought the following items from Supercheap Auto in Austraalia for about $26.00
  4. 1 x Headlight Bulb
  5. 1 x High Beam Bulb
  6. 1 x 2 pack parker bulb
  7. 1 x 2 pack interrior light bulb.
  8. 1 x Single 14mm socket ($4 to replace one I have been missing for ages)
  9. The point of the above list is that it is bloody cheap :D

Tools Used:
  1. 10mm Socket (headlight assembly and or bumper bar)
  2. 12mm Socket (headlight assembly and or bumper bar)
  3. Philips (star) head screw driver I don't know the sizes. (indicator panel, number plate, buttom of bumper bar underneath each side door)
  4. Rachet from a socket set, and a small extender bar.
  5. All of the above is probably posible with only open/closed ended spanners, i wouldn't want to try it though :D
  6. Any additional tools I used certainly wouldn't be required if you knew what you were doing when you started :D But it was fun!

I have a 2002 escape and want to replace the right front headlight. Do you know if the bumper needs to be removed to install light?


When you look at it from the top down you should see 2 adjustment screws. Remove those and the headlight assembly should come out.

I am having a problem trying to replace the low beam headlight bulbs( yes, both sides) for my 2002 Toyota Celica GT. The owners manual doesn't give clear directions for removing the headlight assembly....


Sorry, this is one of those you have to feel for the socket to remove it. did you check the fuse, it is rare that both low beam bulbs would go out at the same time. Don't remove the front bumper what ever you do, it is a nightmare and an accidental deployment of the airbag could occur.

How to remove headlamp assambly in a volvo s60 2002


Hello,

This should be fairly simple,one may have to remove the grille.

  • Remove trimmings on the front bumper cover to allow access to the bolt for removal of the front bumper. The trimming can be removed simply by prying the trimming from the center of the bumper cover using a Philips screw driver.
  • After removing the 2 bolts on the bumper cover, you may open the hood and remove the plastic fasteners on the top of the bumper.
  • To remove the plastic fastener, simply depress the center until click. Do not press too far or the fastener will be damaged.
  • Turn the Torx screw in the wheel well counter clockwise to loosen the catch plate on the bumper. Lift the bumper cover over the catch plate and push the bumper cover forward. This completes the removal of the front bumper cover.
  • To remove the headlight assembly, you will need to loosen the bolt on the retainer near the wheel well. You will then remove the 4 bolts that hold the headlight assembly.
  • There is one bolt on the side of the headlight assembly. Two bolts on top and one at the corner of the lens. They all have the same size bolt.
  • In order to remove the headlight assembly, after removing the bolts, the headlight harness needs to be removed.
  • The next step is to remove the trimming on the lens and removing the clips that hold the lens in place. There are 4 clips. One clips on each side.
  • Once the clips are removed, the lens can be pry open with screw driver. You may want to heat the edge to soften the glue or use an utility knife to scrape the edge. Be extra careful, as the glass can be very sharp if shattered. Please also wear protective gear such as safety goggle and gloves. After this, just reverse the steps to put the headlight back together.
Take care and good luck
