Headlight burned out

pop the hood and you should see, directly behind each headlight assembly, 2 metal rods( they are L shaped). Remove them by pulling straight up, then the whole headlight assembly will come out by pulling forward, away from the motor.Then all you need to do is disconect the wiring harness for each bulb on that side. They will have little tabs, and loops. now remove the bulbs by twisting them until the splines on the bulb receptacle lineup with the outer assembly. Replace bulb and reverse the process.

How do you change the rear brake mount light?

The brake light bulb is located at the lowest position in the tail light assembly. Remove the two screws that hold the taillight assembly to the car. Pull the tail light assembly out from the rear a bit and then toward the side of the car. There are two metal nipples lodged in plastic holders farther up the side of the car. These will come out. Eventually, allow the whole assembly to come out to replace the bulbs. They may stick a bit, requiring some persistence and force.
You many notice the plastic holders for those nipples on the inside of the trunk. Try to resist the urge to take a large tool and do something to them, as tempting as it is. It isn't necessary.

Once the assembly is loose from the car, you will see the individual bulb holders. Turn the holder counter-clockwise to access the bulb. Remove the bulb carefully by pulling it out of the socket. Push in the new bulb, and reassemble the rest by reversing the above steps.

How to change headlight lamp in 2005 Pontiac g6

To change the bulbs you need to first remove the 5 plastic pop screws on the front bumper. They're spread out at the top of the bumper right under the hood. Once you get those out, you have to remove the two hex bolts on each headlight. Then it gets tricky. You need to pull the light towards the front of the car until it pops out of the ball-bearing type mount on the fender. Once that pops out, you have to pull the front bumper forward while maneuvering the headlight out towards the front.

As per the manual it says as follows:---

Open the hood.

Hold the headlamp to prevent damage to the headlamp or to the fascia. Remove the bolts from the headlamp assembly. Remove the push-in-retainers across the front fascia. Remove the headlamp assembly. Lift the headlamp upward to release the locating tab from the front edge of the fender.

Disconnect the electrical connector from the headlamp assembly.

Remove the headlamp bulb access cover by rotating the headlamp bulb access cover counterclockwise, if necessary.

Remove the headlamp bulb from the housing by rotating the socket counterclockwise, if necessary.

Disconnect the headlamp bulb electrical connector, if necessary.

Remove the park/turn bulb access cover by rotating the cover counterclockwise, if necessary.

Remove the park/turn bulb from the housing by rotating the socket counterclockwise, if necessary.

Gently pull the park/turn bulb from the socket, if necessary. Install the park/turn bulb into the bulb socket.

Install the park/turn bulb socket into the headlamp housing by rotating the socket clockwise.

Install the park/turn bulb access cover by rotating the cover clockwise.

Connect the headlamp bulb to the headlamp electrical connector.

Install the headlamp bulb into the headlamp housing. Rotate the socket clockwise until locked.

Install the headlamp bulb access cover by rotating the cover clockwise.

Position the headlamp assembly to the vehicle. Lift the headlamp upward to release the locating tab to the front edge of the fender.

Install the bolts to the headlamp assembly. Tighten the bolts to 2 N·m (18 lb in).

Install the push-in-retainers across the front fascia.

Close the hood.

How do I change the brake bulbs on 99 Nissan Quest

The whole assembly will pop out with a screwdriver (carefully). Then the bulbs can be reached. Just push the whole thing back into the slots when you are done.

How to replace brake light bulb?

If similar to 2002 MPV, you detach the whole side light module, then pop out the bulb-socket, then you can replace the bulb. You need a philips screwdriver, medium size. Open the back hatch. Remove the two screws on the inside edge of the light-assembly. Now pull the whole assembly *sideways* not back - it is held by two detent-pins that face out. You can swing it out a bit and then carefully lever it at top or bottom edge. Lower the assembly face-down, you can see three bulb-sockets. They can be turned a part-turn, I think counter-clockwise, then they pop out. Replace bulb(s), re-insert socket, push assembly back onto pins, replace screws. Just did this for brake/tail light 10 minutes ago.

Replace headlamp bulb on 2006 Chrysler Pacifica

i had the same problem. in my 06 pacifica what we did was unscrewed the top screw on top of the asembly, took a flat head screwdriver and popped the whole assembly out. it made this loud click sound and i thought it was broken but i had to pull the bulb out by jiggling up and down puttin ti back in was easy. make sure not to touch the tip of the bulb because it wont be any good and the replacments cost well over 20 bucks (i paid $23 for mine). the bulb just goes right back in and you screw the assembly right back on.

Headlight assembly instructions

Should be as follows, First remove the plastic cover that goes from one side to the other. It has like 10 pop clips in it. Easiest way to get these out is to take a pair of end nippers and pull the center out then pull out the piece left there. This will make sure they are reusable. After thats out then there are two bolts, I think they are 12mm if I remimber right, They hold the headlight asembly in. After they are out then just give the assembly a good pop and release the metal clip that holds the bottom side of the assembly and the whole thing pops right out. Then twist and remove the bulb and your set to put the new one in in reverse order of course.

Taillight out on 2001 xterra

Pop your rear tailgate. Look inside for an access panel(s). In SUV's they're usually right behind the light assemblies on the inside. They'll either have screws or pop-outs. You may even have to remove part of the interior panel.

Once the panel is removed, access the light panel from behind and remove bulbs.
