Under the hood and directly behind the headlight you are trying to replace the bulb in, there is a rubber piece that is circular with 2 flat "handles" on it. Disconnect the wires from this, then wiggle the rubber piece out. Behind this is a clip. Release the clip and the bulb should come out. Replace the bulb, close the clip, make sure the rubber piece is back on tightly, and reconnect the wires.

Best part about it : No tools needed.

I just did this the other day with my 2001 eclipse GT.

Moister in headlight, how do you remove and can you reseal it


These are not fully sealed housings.
They have two vents on the back side.
However, if the rubber seal on the top that covers the seam for the front and back is poor/leaking, that leads to too much water getting in to vent out.
Inspect integrity of the housing. Make sure everything is sound. If something looks like it might allow water to bleed in, use some silicone sealant (heck, even duct tape) to cover the area.
Inspect the vents and make sure they are not blocked somehow.
Give it some good, hot summer days in the sun (I know, we all need some of those) or drive with the lights on to heat up the housings and vent that moisture out.

How do I change the headlight light bulb on a 1988 cadilac deville?


The bulbs are removed from the back of the lens housing. Some can be reached from under the hood, others need to have the lens assembly removed from the front.

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.

How do you replace the headlight on a 2002 Daewoo Lanos


Hi there, together with providing you the solution to the problem, I also took the liberty of going one step further in giving you steps on how to remove the headlight bulb.

  • Find the hood release handle and activate it, the hood should pop open.
  • Once the hood is popped open locate the hood secondary or safety latch and release it. Then finish opening the hood.
  • Locate and remove mounting clips for any plastic shields that cover the headlight lens mounting screws or clips.
  • Some headlight bulbs can be replaced by simply grasping the bulb socket behind the headlight lens and turn it counter clockwise to remove it. This will expose the headlight bulb.
  • If the headlight bulb socket is not accessible the headlight lens may need to be remove or obstructions behind the bulb removed to gain access to the headlight bulb socket.
  • To remove the headlight lens remove all mounting screws and clips that hold the headlight lens in place.
  • After the headlight housing has been removed from it's mounts, release the headlight bulb from the headlight lens housing (turn counter clockwise) the bulb will then come out of the headlight assembly. Once removed, visually verify that the replacement bulb is exactly the same as the failed bulb before to ensure a proper repair.
  • Clean the headlight lens free from all debris to help maintain the seal from the bulb to the lens. This will keep moisture out of the lens.
  • Install the new headlight bulb by turning the retainer ring or bulb clockwise.
  • Re-install the headlight lens housing and reinstall electrical connector.
  • Re-install plastic covers.
After the job is complete turn the ignition key to the "on" position and activate the headlight switch. Observe the newly replaced headlight bulb to ensure proper operation.

Glad to be of help!!!

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

2001 Eclipse Spyder GT Convertible replace head light bulb


I would recommend that you remove the headlight assembly/ It is a very simple procedure and will make replacing the bulb that much easier.There will be three mounting bolts on the top in plain sight, Its an import so your bolts are going to be metric 10 or 12mm I believe. After these are removed, there will be a clip still holding the headlight in, grip the front of the headlight and the back and give it a good tug up and it should come free. After the headlight has been removed then unplug the wire from the back of the headlight, you will see three prongs there will be a rubber gasket and a metal ring, you will need to remove the ring to be able to get the old bulb out. be careful as not to damge the rubber gasket or you will get water into your headlight. If you need any pics I can post them for you. Hope this works.

The passenger side headlight on 20001 vw beetle


You may have corrosion from winter weather. Bulb socket would be 1st place to check.
  • Locate the headlight housing on the right
  • A gray or black plastic handle which looks like a pull handle.
  • Beside the pull handle there will be a knurled pad which needs to be depressed before you pull the release
  • Press it and same time pull the release the opposite direction, this will unlock the handle
  • While pulling further you'll notice the housing will slide out of the car
  • Remove connector before fully removing the housing out
  • Open back side of case
  • Bulb will have a wire lock on the socket
  • Any contact with bulb glass will leave some form of residue, oil, debris and other contaminants on the glass and cause it to fail 100% of the time
  • Always dip the bulb in alcohol solution (de-natured) to remove all contaminants
  • Reverse procedure to put it back
