How do I replace a headlight bulb on a 2009 Chrysler Town and Country?


No, not the whole ***'y. Access to the bulbs is from rear of ***;y, under the hood. The bulbs and electrical connector just pull out from back of ***'y (there might be a retainer ring holding it in place, easily removed), unplug, and install new bulb. Try not to touch the glass part of new bulb with your hands-it will shorten bulb life.
Good luck.

I need instructions on how to change the headlamp bulbs on a 2005 grand marquis. Please help.


To remove first you want to remove the headlight door mounting screws and remove the headlight door. Then you want to remove the 4 retainer ring screws and remove the retainer ring from the headlight. Then you want to pull the headlight bulb forward and detach the wiring connector.

To install you first want to a
ttach the wiring connector to the headlight bulb and place the bulb in position, locating the bulb glass tabs in the positioning slots. Then you will attach the bulb retainer ring to the assembly with the retainer ring screws. Then you will install the headlight door and secure with the screws. Then you will check the headlight bulb aim and adjust as necessary

Let me know if this helps you.

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.
