The easiest way is to open the hood and on top of each headlight assembly is a L-shaped rod. lift up the one bent end of the rod and slide it out of the assembly. lower the light assebly towards the bumper to expose the back of the bulb plugs. Unscrew the dead bulb and replace. (as stated before. DO NOT TOUCH THE BULB) grease from your fingers creates a hot spot on the bulb and it will fail much sooner than expected. hope this helps.

You change it from within the engine compartment.... behind the headlight bazel on each side. if the bulb is on the battery side you will likely have to remove it first. please note... don't touch the bulb with your fingers as that shortens the lifetime of the bulb.

How do I replace the headlight bulb in my chevy malibu?


Open the hood. There is an electrical connector going to the headlight bucket assembly. Turn the connector counterclockwise and pull gently. The bulb is attached to the connector. Pull the bulb out of the socket and replace with new bulb. Be careful not to handle new bulb with greasy fingers or hands if bulb gets soiled wipe down with alcohol. Halogen bulbs burn very hot oil from your skin will shorten the life of the headlight bulb

2004 monte carlo has all lights except front main, major headlights...can someone help with this issue??? pls?


check the halogen headlight bulbs and plug in connectors, rarely they both wipe out.... seems more like a headlight switch replacement is in the making, if you know how to test the circuitry with a test light see if you are getting power to the headlight halogen bulbs, these switches do have a reputation of burning out.

How do you replace a low-beam headlight on the 2005 Buick Rainier? I do not even understand how to remove the front grille?


Most vehicles are equipped with Halogen bulbs that are small bulbs that are replaced from under the hood behind the headlight bezel assembly.
They have a twist turn method generally to remove/replace hiowever they cannot have your hand come in contact with the glass bulb as the oils on your skin will in fact reduce the halogen bulbs life as it gets extremely hot burning the oil off the lense shortening the bulbs existence.
Remember to replace the bulb with the proper bulb as you may find two or three different applications of halogen bulbs for the same vehicle, they all have a purpose, they go from bright to brighter to brighter each increase in candle power also increases in price of the bulb, a typical standard priced Halogen is approximately $9.95 and up.

REPLACEMENT OF [LOW BEAM] HALOGEN BULB IN 2004 Buick LeSabre


I just Replaced a Low Beam Light bulb on a 2005 Buick La Sabre.

If You use a Metric socket and Remove the Two Silver bolts Attaching the headlight Assemble onto the metal surrounding the the lamp assembly it comes out to the front. This makes it much easier to access the bulb. Twist it counerclockwise & it comes out by pulling gently on the bulb. Then by realeasing a tab that is the socket holder bulb can be removed & replaced with a New #9006 low beam halogen light bulb. Wrap a Paper towel around the bulb & do NOT touch it with your bare hand as this wiil ruin a halogen bulb,
