How do I replace the right hand side head light for a 1994 Holden Calais vs?


There are plastic screws holding the bumper to the rad support, there is a screw under the top corner of the bumper near the wheel. { you may choose to partially remove the wheel splash guard to get easier acces to that screw.} The bumper then pulls with a little force from the side clips, you can then access the inner and top screws/nuts to remove the actual light.

How do you remove the front bumper of a Mercedes Benz cl65 amg


Lift the front end of the car and support on stands.
Remove the front wheels.
Remove the fowards under-tray.
Remove the forward halves of the front wheel arch liners.
Unscrew the small down-facing Torx screw at each top rear corner of the bumper.
Gently pry inwards the rear end of the U-shaped steel channel that holds the fender and bumper flanges together.
Pull the channel rearwards to disengage the lugs from the diagonal slots at the forward end, and remove the channels.
Disconnect the external air temp sensor in the bottom left air intake.
Disconnect the parking sensors connector at the right rear corner. You need to open the lever lock and pull hard without damaging the wiring.
Open the hood and remove two bolts on top of the bumper, next to the inner headlamp mountings.
Remove two nuts in lower grille - vertically beneath above bolts.
If its your first time, get a friend and pull the bumper forwards very slowly and gently, avoiding scratching the fenders.
The bumper is surprisingly light.

It will take about an hour.

How to remove headlamp assambly in a volvo s60 2002


Hello,

This should be fairly simple,one may have to remove the grille.

  • Remove trimmings on the front bumper cover to allow access to the bolt for removal of the front bumper. The trimming can be removed simply by prying the trimming from the center of the bumper cover using a Philips screw driver.
  • After removing the 2 bolts on the bumper cover, you may open the hood and remove the plastic fasteners on the top of the bumper.
  • To remove the plastic fastener, simply depress the center until click. Do not press too far or the fastener will be damaged.
  • Turn the Torx screw in the wheel well counter clockwise to loosen the catch plate on the bumper. Lift the bumper cover over the catch plate and push the bumper cover forward. This completes the removal of the front bumper cover.
  • To remove the headlight assembly, you will need to loosen the bolt on the retainer near the wheel well. You will then remove the 4 bolts that hold the headlight assembly.
  • There is one bolt on the side of the headlight assembly. Two bolts on top and one at the corner of the lens. They all have the same size bolt.
  • In order to remove the headlight assembly, after removing the bolts, the headlight harness needs to be removed.
  • The next step is to remove the trimming on the lens and removing the clips that hold the lens in place. There are 4 clips. One clips on each side.
  • Once the clips are removed, the lens can be pry open with screw driver. You may want to heat the edge to soften the glue or use an utility knife to scrape the edge. Be extra careful, as the glass can be very sharp if shattered. Please also wear protective gear such as safety goggle and gloves. After this, just reverse the steps to put the headlight back together.
Take care and good luck

Jaguar x type 2004 front bumper


Front bumper removal is quite easy. To start with there is 4 10mm bolts one by each headlamp ( with the bonnet open) remov them. There is 3 T30 screws that hold the under tray to the subframe and there is also a small corner trim that is on the bumper side of the front wheel arch here is 3 T30 screws holding them on on each side. Finally remove the front wheel arch lining so you can get acsess to the inside of the bumper. You will then see a 10mm bolt towards the top of the bumper that is reversed to you. Remove then the bumper should then just pull away.

How do i remove the front bumper on a 2005 Hyundai Tucson?


Please leave 4 thumbs up for this answer.
Under the fron wheel arches remove the retaining screws that attach the splash shields to the bumper, Also remove the 2 screws under there that secure the bumper to the corner of the car panel. Remove the grill and supporting clips that attach the bar to the reo {reonforcement} underneath, remove the screws securing the stone shield panels to the bottom of the bar. If you have flood or spot lights, ensure their mountings are free from attaching between the plastic cover and the reo. The cover should pry away with very little force if any. Hope this helps you, safe driving.

I neede to remove the headlights for my 2008 E 350 and need instructions. OIt appears that removing the front bumper is needed ? Thanks


Here's some instructions for removing bumper and headlights.

E-Class W211 front bumper removal (standard body style).

Tools needed:
- Automotive wheel ramps (Rhino ramps from Autozone).
- 1/4" drive socket set with 8mm and 10mm sockets.
- #20 torx bit.
- Floor jack, optional but useful.
- Flat blade screwdriver.

Instructions for bumper removal:

1) Turn front wheels full right to remove push-pin fastener at lower front corner of left wheel well plastic splash guard. It's difficult to remove this fastener once the car is up on the wheel ramps.

2) Turn front wheels full left to remove push-pin fastener at lower front corner of right wheel well plastic splash guard.

3) Drive car up on wheel ramps. Block rear tires. Open hood.

4) Remove lower mesh plastic grille. There are five attachment points on the top edge of the grille. You can get to three of them with your hand by reaching between the radiator and the back side of the grille. The two outer ones can be released with a screwdriver also reaching in between the grille and radiator. Once the plastic tabs are released, you can remove the grille by pulling it out from the front of the car.

5) Remove the plastic panel located immediately behind the bumper from the bottom of the engine compartment. This panel is held in place with nine sheet metal screws with a 8mm hex head. Five screws are on the bottom of the car and there are two screws in each wheel well at the inner lower edge. After removing all nine screws you can work the panel free.

6) Disconnect the cable from each fog light and remove both fog lights. They are held in place by two sheet metal screws with a #20 torx head.

7) Remove the side marker bulbs. The one on the passenger side turns clockwise to remove and the one on the driver side turns counter-clockwise.

8) Remove the temperature sensor from its socket on the driver side.

9) If you have a floor jack, raise the car at the jack point on the cross member below the engine. You do not want to raise it off the wheel ramps. But it helps to have more clearance above the tires to work in the front wheel wells.

10) Remove three of the plastic nuts holding the forward half of the plastic wheel well liner in place. It's not necessary to remove the plastic liner. You just need to loosen it up so that you can pull it away from the fender to gain access to the screw and bracket securing the bumper to the fender.

11) Pull back the wheel well liner and remove the sheet metal screw from the rear end of the metal bracket . There is only one sheet metal screw (#20 torx head) holding this bracket in place. Don't attempt to remove the bracket yet. I used a #20 torx bit in a 1/4" socket with a 6-inch extension for a 1/4" drive wrench. The head of the screw faces the ground.

12) Remove the 5mm bolts (8mm hex head) holding the bumper to the headlight assembly between the small lens and large lens (both sides).

13) Remove the two 6mm bolts (10mm hex head) on either side of the large grille area opening.

14) Remove the two 6mm bolts (10mm hex head) securing the bumper to the bottom edge of the crashbar. You can access these bolts through the front where you removed the plastic mesh grille.

15) Remove the three 5mm bolts (8mm hex head) holding each headlight assembly in place. Two longer bolts are on top. One at the rear outer corner and one at the front inner corner. The third bolt is accessed from the bottom. It's in the area above the fog lamps. You don't need to disconnect the headlight cables and remove the assembly. But it helps to allow the headlight assembly to "float" freely while you disengage the bumper from the fender.

16) At this point all of the fasteners holding the bumper in place have been removed. The only thing left to do is to remove the two brackets "clamping" the bumper cover to the lower front edge of the front fenders. Before you do this, position some cardboard boxes, bags of packing material, six packs of paper towels, or other suitable items to protect the bumper in case it falls off the car.

17) The bracket holding the bumper cover to the fender has a "pin" that slips into a slot at the front edge of the bumper cover. There is a matching slot near the front edge of the fender. It's not possible to see this pin from the bottom of the car. Use a flat blade screwdriver to pry the bracket away from the bumper/fender and towards the center of the car. The bracket will "hinge" on the pin at the front end of the bracket. After you swing the bracket away from the bumper, you need to slide it forward to remove it from the slot in the bumper cover and fender. You will probably scratch some paint off of this bracket with the screwdriver. I recommend repainting the scratched areas of the bracket before reinstalling it.

18) After removing the bracket from each side of the car you need to deal with the small plastic "hook" holding the bumper cover to the very front tip of the fender. This hook is an integral part of the bumper cover. Disengaging this hook from the fender is probably the most difficult step of removing the bumper. Simultaneously raise the head light assembly slightly, push the leading edge of the fender outward slightly, and push the bumper cover inward toward the headlight assembly. Don't get too aggressive with the fender. It's aluminum and you will make a real mess if you apply too much pressure on the fender. It took me about 20 minutes to free each side from this hook. It should take you less time, since you now know that the hook exists!

19) Gently pull the bumper forward and away from the car. This is one step where a second person would be helpful. But I did manage to do this step alone. There is a "pulley" like attachment point on each side just below the fender/bumper seam.

To re-install the bumper, reverse the order of the steps above. When re-installing the bracket between the bumper cover and fender, I smeared a thin coating of car wash soap on the bracket to facilitate snapping the bracket back into place.

2001 Dodge Caravan Drive Shaft/Transmission -- Accident damage


Personally I would not sign off the claim without that transmission being pulled out, & inspected. We're talking aluminum housing etc & that certainly doesn't stand up to a good whack, like the old cast iron did. At the least, I'd ask insurance company to have it examined by a dealership or transmission place , and get their assurance that nothing was damaged, in writing.

How to change bulb in bumpers on volvo v40


The amber lights in the bumper are a complete unit, (bulb cannot be removed without some or all of the amber light assembly) so unfortunatey you will have to go to your Volvo spare parts store & pick one up - front & back are different, as are left & right - check it. I paid €25 for a unit in Ireland.

Changing is a case of unscrewing as much of the bumper as you need to access it and clipping it out. It takes quite a bit of force to clip the new unit back.

Unfortunately I can't help about dash bulb.
