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

How does one replace a halogen bulb (low beam) in a 2004 Buick LeSabre, right side of vehicle. What screws are needed to be removed prior to installation? Is there a schematic to illustrate this?

Thanks,

    Thank you. However, the low beam is located in a corner of the headlamp unit which appears to require removing a "framework" which is held down by two or three screws.



    The high beam halogen bulb, I agree, can be removed and installed with ease, however, the low beam - halogen bulb is located in a very, very tight spot.



    Do you have a schematic for this?



    Thanks,

    Is there a schematic or solution on how to remove the HIGH and LOW beam Bulbs on a 1996 Park Ave.? Thank you

  • Anonymous Mar 15, 2009

    Yup, same problem here with a 2006 LaSabre. The "cap" behind the low beam comes off, but the space is too tight to allow it to come out to expose the bulb. There's a white plastic "lock" of some sort that would make you believe that the headlight assembly swings out somehow, but there is at least one restraint I can see right away that would prohibit that - a piece that goes in front of the assembly that's connected to the bumper. Hope that doesn't have to come off! Somehow there's a trick to this... HELP!!!

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,

Solution #3 I just replaced the low beam lamp on my 2004 Century. Pop the lid and located on the back side of the lamp assembly, a white plastic lock. There is one on each side of the assembly. Pull straight up on the locks and the entire lamp assembly will be able to be pulled forward. Pop off the round rubber cover, gently turn the low beam lamp socket counter clockwise. Unlatch the bulb from the plastic electrical connector and pull out the bulb. Reverse the process and you are done. Careful not to touch the new bulb, oil on your skin can effect the bulb life.

Usually the bulbs can be removed from inside the engine.
Pop the hood.
Locate the headlight assembly inside.
Remove the bulb holder that's in the center of the headlight assembly by twisting it gently but firmly and wiggle it out.
The bulbs should now be visible.
Remove the burn't out bulb and take it with you to the auto parts store.
The auto parts store may remove it for free if you go there first and you can watch so you'll know how to do it next time!
Hope this was helpful.

Good Luck!

What would cause the low beam headlight not to work when all other lights work?


If you have standard halogen bulbs:

  1. Burned out light bulb; or
  2. Fried wires between the dashboard wiring harness and the headlight bulb connectors; or
  3. Fried headlight bulb connectors.
If you have HEI emitters:
  • Failed ballast.

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.

How do you change the low beam headlight bulb?


You will have to remove the headlight assembly to whichever side is burneed out. It is a halogen bulb that gets replaced not the entire assembly. Careful not to touch the new bulb with your fingers as this will cause premature failure of the bulb.
