Under hood there are 2 bots that hold the headlight assembly in place, simply remove the 2 bolts and light assembly will come out exposing the bulb, twist counter clockwise on clamp and light is ready to change.

Just want to change headlithg how to do it


The 2002 Impalas have some of the easiest headlights to replace.
If you are just change the bulb, remove the plug, and turn the head light bulb base about a quarter turn in the clockwise direction. Wiggle it and pull it out.
If you want to remove the whole headlamp assembly, maybe to get some more room to work? there are two white tabs on each headlamp. Pull the white tabs straight up about 1/2 inch. The whole headlight will come straight out in the forward direction.

My 2005 lexus rx 330 (passenger side) has condensation. Is the best solution to replace the headlight unit? I also have a extended bumper to bumper warranty, will this be covered?


Usually, the quickest/easiest solution is the replacement of the headlamp assembly. Your warranty provider may see it otherwise, but with an extended warranty, the seal failure should be covered.

You can try removing the bulb yourself and allowing the lamp to dry, then checking to see if the problem persists within a reasonable amount of time to ensure that it is in fact a bad seal, or you can submit warranty service to your provider.

Passenger side is easy, but how do you get to headlight bulb on driver side on a 200 F-150. Do I need to remove anything?


The easiest way is to pull the retaining clips for the headlamp assembly. Slide the headlamp forward and replace the bulb.

I need to change the headlight i don't know how


You must first remove the Headlamp bezel which is the chrome trim that surrounds the duel headlamp housing. The chrome trim surround is mounted to the Headlamp mount panel with three nuts which you can only access on the inside. Pop open the hood and look on the inside near were the headlamp bulbs are. You will see the three mount nuts for the headlamp bezel. Might be rusty so first give it a shot of WD40 or similar. Remove the nuts and then you can lift the headlamp bezel from the outside away from the headlamp bulbs. The headlamp bezel only has tabs that slid into a slot on the bottom so you can left out once the top three nuts are removed. Once the headlamp bezel has been removed you can then access the 4 screws that hold the headlamp trim ring in place which is what holds the headlamp bulb in place. Remove this ring and then unplug the headlamp from the back and replace the headlamp. Should take you less than 5 or 10 minutes. Dan

  1. sth~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif WARNING: THE REPLACEABLE HALOGEN HEADLAMP BULB CONTAINS GAS UNDER PRESSURE. THE HALOGEN HEADLAMP BULB MAY SHATTER IF THE GLASS ENVELOPE IS SCRATCHED OR THE HALOGEN HEADLAMP BULB IS DROPPED. HANDLE HALOGEN HEADLAMP BULB CAREFULLY. GRASP HALOGEN HEADLAMP BULB ONLY BY ITS PLASTIC BASE. AVOID TOUCHING GLASS ENVELOPE. KEEP HALOGEN HEADLAMP BULB OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
    NOTE: A properly aimed headlamp (13008) assembly normally need not be re-aimed after installation of bulb. A burned out headlamp bulb and retainer (13N021) should not be removed from the headlamp until just before a replacement headlamp bulb and retainer is to be installed. Removal of a headlamp bulb and retainer for an extended period of time may allow contaminants (dust, moisture, smoke) to enter the headlamp and affect the performance of the headlamp. When servicing the headlamp bulb and retainer, energize the headlamp bulb and retainer only while it is contained within the headlamp body.

    Make sure headlamp switch (11654) is in OFF position.
  1. NOTE: On some models the clamps holding the integrated relay control module (IRCM) may need to be unsnapped and the module pulled aside to gain access to the driver side bulb.

    Open hood and locate headlamp bulb through hole in upper radiator support assembly.
  1. Remove headlamp wire connector from headlamp bulb and retainer by pulling the connector and wires in a rearward direction.
  1. Remove headlamp bulb retainer (13N019) by rotating counterclockwise (when viewed from rear) about one-eighth turn and sliding headlamp bulb retainer off headlamp bulb and retainer. Keep headlamp bulb retainer as it will be used again to retain new headlamp bulb and retainer.
  1. Carefully remove headlamp bulb and retainer from opening in headlamp bulb (13007) by gently pulling straight out of opening. Do not rotate headlamp bulb and retainer during removal.

Caution Halogen bulbs contain gas under pressure. Handling a bulb improperly could cause it to shatter into flying glass fragments. To help avoid personal injury:
Turn off the lamp switch and allow the bulb to cool before changing the bulb.
Leave the lamp switch OFF until the bulb change is complete. Always wear eye protection when changing a halogen bulb. Handle the bulb only by its base. Avoid touching the glass. Keep dirt and moisture off the bulb. Properly dispose of the used bulb. Keep halogen bulbs out of the reach of children.
Raise the hood.
Remove the headlamp assembly bolts from the upper fascia support.
Slide the headlamp assembly outward enough to release the headlamp bracket tabs from the slots in the upper fascia support.
Position the headlamp assembly away from the vehicle body to access the electrical connector.
Disconnect the electrical connector from the headlamp assembly.
Remove the headlamp assembly from the vehicle.
Disconnect the electrical connector from the headlamp bulb/socket.
Remove the headlamp bulb/socket retainer ring from the headlamp, by turning counterclockwise.
Remove the headlamp bulb/socket from the headlamp assembly.
