How to Change the headlight bulbs for my 1992 Buick Regal

I purchased Synvania 9006 bulbs today from PBoys. My owners manual only shows and gives instructions once the headlight itself is off. How do I remove the headlights and are there any other parts that I need to remove first before attempting the bulb replacement? Are there any special tools I will need?

One more thing. I understand that you can adjust the directiion of the light beam. The current ones are dim (hence the replacement) but also seem to direct outward instead of straight ahead. What type of tools do I need to adjust the direction?

Thanks, in advance for your help!

    Hi spankie09,



    Thanks so much for the help. Right now it's raining, but if it's dry tomorrow, I'm going to give it a try.



    I love to fix odds and ends on my car, but I didn't want to screw up with anything electrical. I appreciate the tip about the gloves. I did buy two bulbs, so I will hopefully take care of feeling like I'm driving in the dark!!

    Thanks again! :)

A torque bit screw driver are a philips screw driver should be all you need. JUST MAKE SURE NOT THE TOUCH THE BULB (new bulb) WITH YOUR FINGERS. Your body oil will make the bulb burn out quick!!!! Wear rubber gloves when installing the new bulb. f one is dim, you better change both sides. are the other side will also be dim.

Where is the turn signal flasher located on a 1992 Buick Regal?


I would get the owner's manual out of the glove box and look up fuse in the index. That will tell you where the fuse box is and often the turn signal and flasher units are plugged in there. With the signals on I would walk around the car and make sure the bulbs are all good.

How do remove headlight assembly on 2005 Buick LaCrosse to replace lighe bulb


I just changed the low beam bulb in a '05 Buick LaCrosse and found it really rather easy after researching it. I found no reason to remove the grill and the bumper cover, BUT you do have to remove the top 4 fastners that hold the grill assy to the radiator support, then you can work the headlight assy forward enough to work it out of the socket and turn it down so you can get to the bulb pockets on the back side. NO NEED to remove it all, just loosen it and gentley pry things forward enough to get the light assy out. ALSO> My supplier said his Wagner lighting book called for a 9006 bulb, but the car I worked took a H11. About 4x the money over a plain ol 9006 bulb but it might save someone picking up the wrong bulb. I hope this helps someone else out....Best of luck to you all

How do i change the lightbulb in the headlight?


To change the low beam headlight on the 2001 Lesabre, the headlight assembly must first be removed from the car. It is really quite simple to do. There are two bolts on the top of the assembly that must be removed - that is all! The entire assembly comes out and gives easy access to the low beam bulb. Give it a 1/4 counterclockwise turn to remove it. Plus in the new one (#9006) and reverse the procedure.

Signal bulb on 2003 buick regal


To change front turn signal –
open the hood; look in back of headlight; two white clips; pull straight up, and then whole headlight comes out including turn signal; it is all one unit; remove rubber cover, then you take bulb out of unit. Mechanism that bulb fits in will need to be turned clockwise (looking from the front) and pulled to get it out of the larger unit holding all lights. Be sure and put rubber cover back on before re-inserting the two white clips.

Need new headlights


Should be a black plastic ring where headlight is located under hood. Twist ring in counter clock wise position then remove bulb unplug from harness and replace bulb. This should be a halogen bulb so don't touch the glass on the bulb or it will pop eventually when it gets heated.
