Re: How do I remove the plastic headlight covers to clean...
Remove the screw on top of the lamp assembly. The lamp assemble come off as one unit. There are three contact clips that hold the lamp on. They may be frozen fast. Try spraying oil to loosen before removing lamp assembly. To remove the lamp, push down on the top of the lamp, this should loosen the top pin from the holder,then try to pull the assembly straight out. It takes some tugging and pulling if the light assembly has been in for a few years. In fact the clips may snap off and need to be replaced before putting in a new lamp assembly. Good Luck

under the passenger head light.....you have to remove the grill and remove the passenger side of the front nose cover....pain in the ****.....simple way...remove passenger headlight and cut a 3 inch circle out of the plastic....center of where the bottom of the headlight sits.....and the relay is mounted to the inner fender ....a dremel tool works perfect.....
Look under the hood for a plastic rectangular box mounted close to the top of the engine compartment, passenger side. Remove the lid by compressing the plastic clips and look inside that cover for which relay is for the headlights - there may be 2, but not likely.
I is under the passenger side headlight. I have had to change mine a few times now. The proper way to do it is to remove the front bumbper to gain access. Crazy I know. The jeep dealer showed me a quicker way. Remove the headlight, cut a hole through the bumber under the headlight( you won't see the hole as the headlight will cover it up), and this will give you access to the relay.
Replace the fan relay switch. The dealer will charge you 400 to pull the bumper off, or you can buy the part for 45 and cut the hole in the plastic near the passenger headlight assembly and replace it yourself. There are instructions for this procedure on the web somewhere. I have had this problem more than once with my 02 GC V6.
Pop the hood and you will notice that behind the light covering there is a connector that screws into the back of the light cover. Unscrew it and the bulb can be removed and replaced with a new one. Be sure to not touch the new bulb with your bare hands as this will cause the bulb to burn out quicker (its a chemical reaction of some kind). Hope this helps, let me know how it goes. Good luck!
