SOURCE: 2001 Merc. Sable headlight replacement

There are two 10 millimeter bolts that must be removed. Place these in your pocket or a convenient place so they will not be mispalced or lost. Also you need to pull upwards and remove an aluminun locking tab(coated in black plastic). After this is done carefully slide assembly foward. Press down on the wiring harness clip to remove it from the headlight bulb assembly, Turn the locking ring on the bulb to the right and remove so you can remove the bulb. Twist bulb out. When replacing new bulb do not touch the glass portion of the bulb. If you do so clean off with alcohol. Oil from your fingers left on the bulb will cause the bulb to overheat and fail prematurely. Replace bulb and secure with locking ring. You may also want to change the yellow parking/signal light bulbs at the same time. Clip wiring harness back on and slide headlightassembly back into place. Slide aluminum locking tab back into place. Now hand thread 10mm bolts back into place, Then tighten, do not over tighten. Now do the other side. First time might take you about 10 minutes per side. After that you could do it in a couple of minutes. Info on performing this maintenence can be foud in the owners guide or by downloading the guide from the following link http://www.motorcraftservice.com/pubs/content/~WO1SAB/~MUS~LEN/40/01sabog3e.pdf

Hope this info helped.

SOURCE: lenses on my 96 merc Sable are so cloudy headlight

You'll need the following. Painter's tape or Masking tape, 2000, 2500, 3000 grit sandpaper, bucket of water, headlight polish (PlastX, etc) and microfiber cloths

Mask off around the light so you don't have to worry about sanding your paint if your hand slips.

Soak the sand papers for at least 15 minutes. The more water the better Using the lowest grit, start sanding in ONE DIRECTION ONLY,(side to side). Keep the sandpaper wet and dip it in your bucket of water frequently. Now dry the headlight and it should look all hazy

Switch to the next finer grit, and repeat the step above, but this time go in the OPPOSITE DIRECTION (up and down). Keep using water
Dry it again, and it will look better than the first time.

Repeat the process again with your finest grit. Again, OPPOSITE DIRECTION with plenty of water. Dry it off. It should look relatively new at this point. Remove the tape as it will contain bits of grit from the sandpaper.

Generously apply the headlight polish in a circular motion to the headlight

Using your microfiber cloth, rub off .. repeat several times with FRESH rags until the polish is dry and gone.

Now the headlight will look like new

Headlights wont shut off


I'm not finding anything that states that the new Camaros headlights shut off during breaking. The new Camaros have something called "Head-Up Display". It comes standard on the 2LT and 2SS. The Head-Up Display (HUD) is specially designed for high-performance driving situations. The HUD presents performance data without requiring the driver to look away from the usual viewpoint.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I had the same problem. The solution is simple; the ignition switch needs to be replaced. This is an easy do-it-yourself project. Here are instructions:

Check for a switch on ebay, they are about $15. After 10 years they wear out.
