I have this same issue. I don't have a solution, however, I will say this. In the headlight assembly, there are two things that you must do to release the entire assembly for it to slide out. First is a little hex stud that is just inside the hood. You turn it one way to unlock it, and the assembly slides out a bit. Then you have to press on a lever, and pull out the entire assembly. When the whole thing goes back in (after replacing the bulb) the assembly is pushed into the wiring harness. In order to keep the assembly in good contact with the wiring harness, you have to lock the hex stud. However, it is VERY tricky to get the hex stud re-locked. If you turn the opposite way, you can go too far and it will unlock again. If you shine a light into that area, you will see below the assembly there is a little metal piece that gets pushed out when you turn the hex stud. Keep playing with the hex stud until it's in the correct position, and that should keep the assembly from sliding forward. If it doesn't stay (ie you get it to lock but it giggles free), you might have to have the assembly replaced (~$300). One of my headlights is really temperamental, the other is better behaved. Unfortunately, I'm probably looking at replacing the headlight assembly. After a year of battling it!!! :(

Check for condensation around the wiring and also check for loose or brittle wires. Also check to make sure there are no fingerprints on the bulb. That can cause a problem sometimes. If all else fails replace the bulb.

depending on which side it is either the battery box asembly or the air cleaner assembly has to be removed to get to the wire keeper that holds the headlight bulb assembly in the rear of the headlight housing. then release the wire keeper and the bulb assembly comes out of the rear of the headlight housing and you can change the bulb. do not touch the glass part of the new bulb assembly, only handle the metal part of the new bulb assembly.

2006 Volkswagon Beetle, drivers side headlight, high beam not working


Instructions
    • Turn the headlight switch on and inspect the headlights. Make sure to check both low- and high-beam lights, and then note the position of the bulb in the headlight assembly. Low-beams are in the top cavity of the assembly and high-beams are in the lower cavity.
    • 2Turn off the headlight switch and then remove the keys from the ignition.
    • 3
    • Open the hood and locate the seam to the headlight assembly and the side fender. Locate the headlight assembly release lever and push in on it slightly to unlock it and then pull it all the way up until it stops.
    • 4Place a blanket or pillow on the ground in front of the headlight assembly. Push the assembly outward from behind with one hand while being ready to catch the assembly with the other. The New Beetles use an adhesive sealant to protect the back of the headlights from exposure to moisture, so you'll have to give the assembly a push from behind.
    • 5Pull the wire harness plugs off from both the high- and low-beam blades of the respective bulbs.
    • 6Place the assembly on the blanket or pillow. Release the wire clip to the faulty headlight and then remove the headlight bulb.
    • 7Open the package of the new H1 bulb replacement without touching the glass portion of the bulb with your bare skin. Oils in human skin will damage the bulb. Handle it only by the metal base of the bulb insert.
    • 8Insert the new bulb in the appropriate headlight-assembly cavity and reattach the bulb retaining clip to lock the bulb in place.
    • 9Lift the assembly up and plug the wire harness plugs back into the respective blades of the bulbs.
    • 10Push the headlight assembly into its cavity, but before locking it in place, check the lights by turning on the headlight switch.

How to change the bulb in 1999 RAV-4


Instructions
    • Open the RAV4's hood and locate the headlight bulbs plugging into the rear of the headlight assemblies. Each assembly has two bulbs, one outer and one inner. Unplug the wiring harness from the rear of the burnt-out headlight, by pressing the locking button and pulling down on the harness.
    • 2Grab the rear of the bulb and rotate the bulb about a quarter turn counterclockwise to unlock it. Pull the bulb from the headlight assembly.
      3
    • Grab a new 9005 (high beam) or 9006 (low beam) bulb by its plastic base. Insert the bulb in the rear of the headlight assembly, lining up the tabs on the bulb with the notches in the headlight assembly, and twist it clockwise to lock the bulb in place. Do not touch the glass part of the headlight bulb, as the oils from your hands can cause the bulb to fail prematurely.
    • 4Plug the wiring harness into the receptacle on the rear of the bulb

Passenger side headlight assembly removal, is there more than 2 bolts, if so where


You can replace the headlights on your Crossfire easily by yourself. headlight image by Carbonbrain from Fotolia.com

When a headlight burns out on your Chrysler Crossfire, you do not need to rush to the repair shop to have it replaced. You can access the headlights in your Crossfire from within the engine compartment, allowing you to change the headlight yourself. The Crossfire uses an H7U headlight bulb, which you can find at auto parts retail stores or at a Chrysler dealership.
Difficulty: Easy

  1. 1 Open the hood of your Crossfire to gain access to the headlight assemblies. Press down on the tab on top of the light assembly cover. Remove the cover and set it aside.
  2. 2 Pull the electrical connection free of the bulb socket. Press the spring clamps securing the bulb into the light assembly. Pull the bulb straight out of position.
  3. 3 Insert the new bulb in the same position. Ensure that the spring clamps secure the bulb. Press the electrical connection into place.
  4. 4 Replace the light assembly cover and press it into position until it clicks, securing it in place. Repeat the same process on the opposite headlight if required. Close the hood and test the headlight operation.
