    Yeah that's what I thought, but I tried getting to either side, and it looks like I'm going to have to remove some of the under hood parts to get to either side.
    I have the 5.7 HEMI With a Full Air Aide Cool Air Intake in the way on the passenger side, and all the fluid wells on the drivers side.


  • mitch566 Jan 25, 2009

    I did it,
    You're not going to believe this. I had to pull the front tires off, behind the light, in the tire well is an access panel that pulls right off giving you access to the back of the front light assembly.
    After finding that out, it was a piece of cake.

    It was def easier taking the tires off the front, but I have short stubby fingers. haha
    I put the H13ST/9008 Silver Stars in the headlight, and the 9006 Silver Stars in the fog lights, and man it's like daytime at night.
    what a huge difference from stock.
    2X a Month I drive from Albuquerque to Phoenix for business, and this last trip was sooooooooooooo nice,
    I leave ALBQ around midnight to get to Phoenix about 7-8am.
    and yeah I get the on coming traffic blinking their lights at me, but who cares,,,lol

As Mitch described, it's a piece of cake, once you know where the panel is. No need to remove tires or anything, but turning the wheels to get them out of the way helps. Thanks, Mitch!

SOURCE: head light 2005 altima

you have to remove the bulbs from inside of the hood in the engine compartment. in some cars you have to remove some "pins' and remove the entire headlight assembly.. You then remove the holder where the lightbulb is located and replace the bulb.

SOURCE: replace headlight bulb in 2000 dodge durango sxt 4.7l

There are 3 machine bolts that hold the big white part of the head light to the truck. These bolts are black and I think 7/16 but not completely sure, maybe 12mm or so. You'll need sockets, ratchet and a really long extension. Two regular extensions won't reach the bottom one. You get to all three of them from the front of the truck straight in. Once those are out, the head light assembly pulls forward and can dangle from about 10-12 inches of extra wire. This is attached to the bulb harness. 1/3 of a turn and the wire and bulb come out of the head light. Pop the new bulb back in WITH GLOVES, do not touch those halogens. And put it back together. You can use peanut butter in a deep well or regular socket to hold the screws in to get them started, or the rag thing. 
It took me 14,607 hours to find these bolts and about 10 minutes to do the job! Hope it helps out!

59Shadow.
Thank you for sharing the information on the light bulb. You just saved me money from having to take my 2003 Trailblazer in to have the low beam bulb replaced. I did exactly what you said.
1 Open hood and lock.
2. Take filter cover off (4 screws and they stay with the filter).
3. 3 inch cover pulls off.
4. Twist light bulb 1/8 turn.
5. Unclip the wiring harness to light bulb assembly.
6. Test by turning light switch on.
7. Align assembly with light housing and turn 1/8 until it snaps in.
8. Put 3 inch cover back on.
9. Place filter cover back on and hand tight the 4 screws.
10. Close hood.

SOURCE: Adjust the headlights on 2005 Sebring, Touring Sedan

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall. Also mark where the center of the bulbs would be (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall. For horizontal, aim the hot spot directly at the line you marked for the center of your bulbs

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

Headlights dont work


sounds like the contacts in the headlight switch have gone bad.. the switch needs to be replaced - I have seen this more than once...usually due to someone installing "high performance" headlight bulbs that pull additional current causing the light switch to "fry" over time.
first do yourself a favor, and test the bulb from one headlight, just to make sure the bulbs arent both burned out.
