On my Mazda I did the following:
- Pulled off the electrical connector socket from the back of the headlight housing.
- Pried off the rubber boot on the back side of the headlamp assembly.
- Removed the wire bracket surrounding bulb by removing the screw that held it in place, although it may be possible to remove the bulb without removing the bracket.
- Extract the bulb from the headlight assembly.

Reassembly was just the revrese of the above steps.

If the lens covers are yellow or discolored you would have to remove the lens and they have chemical at autozone or napa that can take care of this problem but to replace the bulb you open the hood and put your hand in behind the headlight assembly and there is a plug you normally turn counter clockwise and the bulb comes out always wipe the bulb off if you touch it with your hand because the sweat from your hand will cut the life of the bulbs

2000 GRAND CARAVAN: Extremely dim headlights, because headlights are so narrow. Installed 9007SU Silverstar Ultra bulbs 3 years ago. Age 77 so poor night vision + still DIM headlights is BAD at night! ...


The silverstar bulbs while brighter, have a considerably shorter life span than conventional bulbs. If the headlights are dim, it would mean a bad electrical connection most commonly a bad ground. If they are just too dim for your liking and burn at the normal brightness, you might want to consider having auxilliary headlamps installed.

Low beam lights not working the other lights do. want to replace the headlight relay


First check that your headlights are not burned out. You may have been running on one bulb for a while then it feels like the switch or relay died when it was only the other bulb burning out.

it is fairly cheap fix. If the bulbs are old anyhow (more than 7 years), it is worth replacing them because they are fairly dim compared to new ones.

Good luck.

'03 Cavalier driverside headlight looked dim. Replaced bulb, lasted 1 day, then it looked dim, too. Bulb socket had burn mark. HELP!


When replacing headlight bulbs it's best to wear gloves as the oil from your skin can actually damage the new bulb. Spray out the headlight socket with some electrical cleaner and make sure the bulb is properly seated with no bent wires on the the bulb where it inserts into the socket.

Dim lights on 99 camaro are not working - fuse is good


When one side of headlights go out dim or high, it can send the extra power to the working headlight burning it out too. This usually happens if the headlight bulbs are both old. Try changing out both headlight bulbs first, as this is the easiest and cheapest fix.
