    Thanks for your advice, and this would work if our hands were the size of a child's. Do you recommend using any type of specialized tool to do the turning, or removing something to get at it?

Reach in behind where wiring connects to plug and simply untwist plug and remove... lamp will be attached.

Replace with new and reverse procedure to install

Note: Don't touch lamp with bare fingers...will leave finger prints and shorten lamps life..

    I should of added that your model may allow removal of whole light assembly prior to lamp removal.

    Could be metal ring around face of assembly... remove ring; but careful not to change aiming adjustment screws.

    Assembly has to come out if it's as tight as you say to access from the back.

Replacing headlight for 1994 olds ciera


It depends on which lamps you have? The none-European is like the picture. You use a screw driver of some type and remove that frame, then remove the headlamp frame.

The other type, you get under the hood and remove headlamp bulb connector to remove bulb.

How do I change out headlight bulb on 91 olds cutlass cierra


Behind the headlight, you should see the nylon bulb holder. Turn it counter clockwise, about a 1/4 turn, and it should come out. Pull the old bulb straight out, and replace it with the new one. Don't touch the glass part of the new bulb with bare fingers, or you'll be replacing it again. Use cotton gloves or a paper towel. Put the holder back in the headlight, turn it clockwise until it locks.
