Question about 2002 Chevrolet 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

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.

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.

Ok yourgoing to want to pop the hood and you will see the back of the light give it a turn counterclock wise and it should pop right out. Then the bulb will just swap over no issues
