1. In the back of the headlight, you should see a rubber insert and a plug going in that's in the shape of a cube.

2. Disconnect the cube shaped plug by pulling it out. There is grease on there so have a towel to wipe your hands just in case you don't want your hands dirty.

3. Remove the rubber insert simply by tugging it out. It's a lot easier than you think so don't tug that hard and hurt your hands. Now, after the rubber insert is removed, this is the trickiest part. I tried to take the bestest picture I can. In the picture below, you see 3 metal stick sticking out and to the right a bit, you see a little tab. What you need to do is push that tab in, towards the headlight direction, and unhook the bulb that's connecting to it. Give it a few try and you'll know what I'FRONT PILOT LAMP 12V 5W TOYOTA YARIS 2001 - headlight3.jpgt.

4. Now, after the hard work of getting the bulbs out, remove them carefully from the car. Replace the bulbs you would like on back inside the bulb. The type of bulbs the Echo uses are H4. I bought some off ebay for around 9.99. Xenon HID, they give off a white light with a dark bluish tint to it. Putting back the bulb is easy, just put the bulb in, hook the switch (tab thingy) back on and reconnect everything. You might want to put some grease on the new bulbs though.

Change indicator bulb front


Under the hood on the headlight bulb housing you will see what looks like a gray colored fin. That is the bulb holder. Space could be tight. Grab and twist to remove the holder. Many times it's the holder and not the bulb. If you change the bulb or holder do both sides at the same time, it's cheap enough.

You don't need a dealer for much of anything

All of todays vehicles require removing the lamp

take out the lamps/bulbs

If you open the hood you will find screws that hold it in place

How to replace bulb in front bumper turn signal housing 1995 jag xj6


hello,
  • Identify the blown bulb. Note that if a headlight bulb has blown, the dip beam is on the outside and the high beam is on the inside. Turn off the ignition switch and light switches.

  • Open the hood and replace any blown headlight bulbs. Press the plastic spring clips and remove the bulb holder from the assembly. Pull the bulb out of the bulb holder and replace it with a new bulb. It only fits one way. Be sure not to touch the bulb's glass. Replace any parking lights at the same time, they are in the headlamp unit too.

  • Remove the front turn signal light unit in the bumper to change the turn signal bulb. Push gently on the inside edge and insert a blade between the bumper and the lens at the outside edge. Compress the spring and remove the lens. Fit a new lamp by inserting it into the plug. The side marker light is changed using a similar process.

  • Open the trunk to replace the rear fog light, stop light, tail light, reversing light and turn signal light. Remove the rear light cover and turn the bulb holder fastener 90 degrees counter clockwise. Remove the expired bulb, fit a new one and replace the parts, turning the bulb holder clockwise.

  • Thanks..

    The Explorer/Mountaineer models only use two upper lens retaining screws, the bottom use barbed push pins



    1. Remove the 2 (Explorer/Mountaineer models) or 4 (Ranger models) screws retaining the lamp assembly to the vehicle.
    2. Remove the lamp assembly from the vehicle by pulling it outward. On the Explorer/Mountaineer models, make sure the 2 barbed retainers at the bottom of the assembly release.

    Remove the bulb from the socket by pulling it straight out


    1. Remove the lamp sockets from the lens housing by twisting it, then pulling outward.
    2. Remove the bulb from the socket by pulling it straight outward.

    To install:

    1. Install the bulb into the lamp socket.
    2. Install the lamp socket to the lens and twist it to lock it in position.
    3. Position the lens assembly to the body. On Explorer/Mountaineer models, ensure that the barbed retainers are aligned with their mounting clips, and press the assembly until fully seated.
    4. Install the lens assembly retaining screws (four screws used on the Ranger and 2 on the Explorer/Mountaineer).
    5. Check the operation of the lights.

    How do I replace parking light on front passenger side


    Try to look behind the lens for the parking light for a socket that can be twisted out and unlocked from the back of the lens. Replace the bulb which may be a push in type or twist on type.

    When I looked up information on Chilton and Autozone, I couldn't find information on it, unfortunately.

    How to replace Marker lamp in 1999 Toyota Corolla


    Open the hood. Observe the area above the right headlamp, close to the fender. You will see a phillips screw that holds a plastic tab. Remove the phillips screw. After removing the screw, pull the marker lamp assembly towards you. It may be real tight, if it has never been removed before. You need to pull the light assembly out of 2 retention sockets behind the marker lamp. Rotate the bulb socket to get to the bulb, replace the bulb, & slide it back in.Easy job.
