Question about 2002 Chevrolet Impala

How do you clean headlights on a 2002 chevy impala?

This is my son's car. He says the lights don't seem to extend in front of the car enough. Can they be adjusted? Does he need new bulbs? The headlights appear dirty on the inside. What is the best way to clean them?

They can be adjusted up/down. see picture for adjustment screw.
The headlight housing can leak and condensation will form inside and maybe stain the inside. It is very difficult to take the housing apart... do go there.
It's more likely that that outside of the headlight is discolored with age. There are kits available at parts stores to recondition the outside of the lense.
The bulbs will also get dimmer with age. I recommend Philips VisionPlus; 9006 for low beams. You can get a pair on Ebay for $20 or less. They'll be $40-50/pr at the parts store.
This headlight is the easiest I have ever seen to remove. The headlamp can be easily removed by pulling up on the two white strips about a half inch (??). Then wiggle and pull the assembly straight forward.

the best thing to get is the Haynes manual for your car at advanced auto or autozone or somewhere like that and the book will tell you how to take everything apart and put it back. i think the manual is about $16.00

SOURCE: 2002 Chevy Impala Radio Doesn't Work

Check the radio fuse? Box is drivers side end of dash(drivers door open)or pass side end of dash(passenger door open)
police models have a connection for the speakers (passenger floorboard under floor mat) to connect the speakers to the police radios.
If they had the speakers connected to their radios,they may have unhooked them and not connected them back to the radio.
The wires are brown,grey,blue and light blue.All into a blue connector.

SOURCE: 2000 Chevrolet Blazer Changing Low Beam Headlight

the metal ring is the retainer for the bulb. you should be able to get at it from the front area without taking the grill loose. most of those only have 2 little phillips head screws. remove the screws and the bulb will come out. unplug it and the new one goes right back in. installation is the reverse of removal.

My 2004 Chevy Impala right head light won't come


There are right and left fuses for the headlights. The dimmer switch and headlight switch provide the ground circuit.
Do you have power at the fuse ?

Dash and radio lights don't work at night. They are on during the day. 2003 Chev Impala. Have checked all the fuses.


The same thing happens on my 2003 Impala. I found that my dimmer switch has an intermittent failure where sometimes the dash lights go out even with the headlights on.
If I wiggle the dimmer just right, the dash, radio, steering wheel, door locks, and every other light comes on (when the headlights are on). My fix was to mount my Garmin on the steering column in front of the speedometer so when the lights go out I know how fast I'm going. A replacement dimmer (or bypassing the current one and adding a resistor) should take care of it.

Where is adjustment screw for headlights on 2008 impalla


Vic, the adjuster is either a allen key, torx, or #2 philips type bolt found close to the bolt that is holding headlight in place on inner fender rail/flange. I believe on the Impala the only adjustment is up and down of the light beam. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck
