I just replaced the headlight on my Mom's 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. If you have the manual for it, the instructions are in there. Open the hood, disconnect the negative battery cable, remove the two screws on the top of the headlight and you're supposed to be able to just pull on the top left and bottom right corners (for driver's side light) and it comes right out. It wasn't quite that simple for me. I had a heck of a time getting it out, but it WILL pull out. There are four clips behind it holding it in that you can't get to. That's what makes it hard to pull out. Once you get it out, just turn the light bulb on the back of it and pull it out of the headlamp assembly. Unplug the bad one and replace it with your new bulb. Plug the new bulb in, insert it into the headlamp assembly, turn it to lock it in place, put the headlamp assembly back in, push hard to re-engage those annoying clips, replace the two screws,re-connect your battery and... you did it!

Prius headlights work only on highbeam

There should be separate fuses for high and low beams on a Prius. If one of your headlight bulbs is bad, it could have blown the low-beam fuse. Check for blown fuses behind driver's side headlight fuse panel. If new one blows, replace headlight bulbs and try again.

On 2004-2009 Prius, driver's side headlamp bulb can be replaced by removing hold down screws and folding fuse panel upward to access rear of headlight assembly. Large round cover with 3 tabs unscrews about 1/4 turn to remove. It's really tight and held by friction of large O-ring so it'll take some muscle but it will eventually give. Be careful replacing bulbs as metal clips can be easily installed incorrectly resulting in tilted headlight beam. 3-tabs must rest on flat surfaces on mounting area before spring clip can be latched in place. 3-prong plug can be wiggles sideways/up and down to remove from bulb.

Replace bulb headlight

Most of the headlights do not unbolt to change bulbs. If it's a blown bulb you're trying to replace, look on the back side of the headlight housing. There should be a plug with wires attached going into the back. This plug should twist either to the right,left or up or down. Once you've twisted this plug out of the headlight housing you'll see the bulb you need to replace. Unplug the wire harness from the blown bulb and place it into the new bulb, being careful not to touch the new bulb with your bare hands as any oil or other contamination will cause these bulbs to blow as soon as they are turned on. Place the new bulb with harness back into the socket in headlight housing and twist into position.

2001 LT Tahoe How the heck do you replace the daytime driving light bulbs? I cant get the headlight housing loose from the frame to install the new bulb?

On the top of the radiator support above each headlight there are 2 pins that are locked in to place that can simply be rotated and pulled straight up and they come all the way out they both the same size about 6 inches long. Once you pull them out the whole headlight assy is now loose and can be pulled away from the body allowing you to access the bulbs. Changeing both should take no longer than 5 minutes. Once you figure it out it's a smoke

I installed HID headlights and fog lights about 2 months ago and the passanger side went out. i took the drivers side bulb and put it into the passanger side to see if the bulb or the ballast was bad and...

The headlights run through a relay (#46) through the BCM. If the relay were bad (very common and has a recall) both lights would not work. Sooo, I'm thinking check the wiring and pigtail that goes to the bulb. People that use Silverstar halogeon bulbs will burn that wire and or the connector. Make sure these are sound, check for power at the connector too.

No owners manual

There should be a switch on the dash or the headlamp switch. they will only work on LOW BEAM. it is possible that both bulbs can be bad.

Headlights go onand off one at a time . It is on the low beem lights.It seems to alternate from left to right .machanicks cant seem to be able to figure it out. please help.

Do you have a HID ?
If you have just regular Halogen lamp then here is the problem:
The contact from the plug to the bulb got corroded over time. Clean out the contact of the plug is difficult, but cleaning the prong sot the bulbs is feasible. After clean them put the bulb from the right to the left to see the problem revesed.
My recommendation is to replace both the bulbs. It has been 7 years, and they have not been changed, it time to replace even they are still glowing. The reason to replace to have new clean contact less resistance to have a steady current, avoiding the on and off situation.

Blown headlight

There are 3 or 4 bolts on the headlight housing that you have to remove first. Then pull the whole light assembly out from the front of the vehicle. You can then access the lights from the back of the housing assembly and replace the bulbs.
I was told by my local KIA dealer that if you buy the bulbs from them, they will replace them free of charge if they burn out. SLIM CHANCE being that KIA doesnt warranty anything, but that is what I was told. I have replaced the headlight bulbs atleast 6 times in 2 years.
