Saturn 2003 headlight change

I followed the owners manual to change the bulb but at the point where you're suppose to insert a flat head screwdriver into a locking clip and release it to lift the headlamp assembly up I'm stumped. There isn't a locking clip or mechanism of any sort, nothing that remotely resemble's the picture. Obviously the lower bracket is clipped in but I cannot figure out how to release it. I'm really frustrated with this whole ordeal--any suggestions?

How do i change the headlights on a 2000 lumina?


Removal
  • Open the hood and find the burned-out bulb and its wiring on the backside of the headlight assembly. Twist the bulb a quarter-turn counterclockwise to unlock it, then pull the bulb from the headlight assembly. Pry the locking tab on the headlight bulb wiring harness upward with a flat-head screwdriver to unlock it, then separate the bulb from the wiring harness.
Installation
  • Hold the new bulb by its plastic base -- handling the bulb by its glass may cause it to burn out quickly -- and plug the wiring harness into the new bulb. Align the tabs on the bulb with the notches in the headlights assembly, then insert the bulb and turn it clockwise to lock it in place.

How do have you change an headlight bulb?


LOOK IN YOUR GLOVE COMPARTMENT FOR THE OWNERS MANUAL. LOOK IN THE BACK INDEX OF MANUAL LOOK UP BULB REPLACEMENT. IT WILL SHOW AND TELL YOU HOW TO REPLACE HEAD LIGHT BULBS. YOU NEED TO WEAR CLEAN LATEX GLOVES WHEN CHANGING HALOGEN BULBS BECAUSE OILS FROM FINGERS AND HANDS WILL CAUSE THE HALOGEN HEADLIGHT BULBS TO OVER HEAT AND BLOW OUT. HALOGEN BULBS ARE EXPENSIVE THEY COST FROM $10.00 - $20.00 BE SURE TO WEAR CLEAN GLOVES WHEN HANDLING THEM.

When i turn on the headlights the brakelights go out.


From a Jeff in Fort Meyers Florida... it worked for few owners; "this is the corrective method for your brake lights not working when your headlights are on (2000 Jeep Cherokee Laredo).

1) The cause of the problem is heat from the bulb.

2) Remove the light assembly as if you were going to change a bulb.

3) Turn the socket and remove it from the taillight assembly and set it aside(check to be sure your bulb is not burnt out).

4) Look at the opening, you will see 3 flat chrome colored contacts on the assembly.

5) Notice the one by it self at the top of the opening, that is the "ground".

6) If you look closely you will notice the plastic around the ground contact has shrunk a little bit, this caused the contact to pull away from the socket, causing the problem.

7) With a small flat head screwdriver, VERY GENTLY pry up the contact so it stays slightly upward by itself.

8) Re-insert the bulb assembly back into the housing and press your brake petal with your lights on.

9) You should be in good to go!

10) Tools: Phillips head screwdriver and a small flat head screwdriver.


Hope helps.

How to change a headlight bulb in a saturn aura?


Access to change the headlamp bulbs is through the wheel well. The recommended method is to remove the front tire and then the plastic inner fender liner. Once removed, you'll have easy (more or less) access to the rear of the headlamp housing.

Adjusting headlights on 2003 honda accord


Further to Emmisionwiz's answer that worked for me - the holes are in the black plastic covering the radiator support, to each side more or less in line with the headlights. They are marked with an "A" and rotation directions for UP and DOWN. The Phillips screwdriver goes into the hole about 45 degrees from vertical and engages the adjusting rack, where the teeth of the Phillips screwdriver are the pinion. If you shine a flashlight down the hole you can see the rack teeth and all becomes clear. But you will need a long Phillips screwdriver and a little bit of luck.

In the owner's manual it says the lights are adjusted correctly at the dealership and if they need adjustment because of a trailer then take the car to a Honda certified mechanic.

I have a 2004 Accord also and the method is the same for that one too.
