On either side of the headlight wiring assembly, in the engine compartment, you will find 2 small tabs. They are located to the sides and towards the bulb of the plastic assembly. Press these 2 tabs in while pulling the wire assembly out. Remove the rubber gasket and unhook the wire spring holding the bulb in place. The bulb come right out. The bulbs are halogen so do not handle the new bulb by the glass.

    Most of the other bulbs, tail lights, turn signals, etc, are replaced by turning them 1/4 and pulling out though. At least on my 2001 Mitsubishi Gallant.

You shouldnt have to pull the whole lens assembly.On the back of the lens assembly(inside engine compartment)you should find what looks like a big round nut where the wires go in.unscrew that nut and your headlight should come out and you can insert the new one.Its a halogen bulb.

I have a 2007 honda 919 hornet, the headlight quit working. I changed the bulb and checked the fuse, headlight will not come on. Is it the relay or do I need to clean the starter botton?

head light has a relay
and starter solenoid has a fuse

not blowing fuses is good

could be a bad earth at the bulb holder

if you cant go faster than JAWS
"you are going to need a bigger bike "

if you touch the bulb glass with fingers while fitting the bulb
it may blow the bulb

How to remove left headlight.

It may be all one sealed unit. Newer cars have headlight , blinker and parking light all in one housing. If the headlight is out you change the bulb by unscrewing the bulb capsule from the back. If you are trying to replace it because the lens is damaged or cracked, you will have to replace the whole unit.

2001 LT Tahoe How the heck do you replace the daytime driving light bulbs? I cant get the headlight housing loose from the frame to install the new bulb?

On the top of the radiator support above each headlight there are 2 pins that are locked in to place that can simply be rotated and pulled straight up and they come all the way out they both the same size about 6 inches long. Once you pull them out the whole headlight assy is now loose and can be pulled away from the body allowing you to access the bulbs. Changeing both should take no longer than 5 minutes. Once you figure it out it's a smoke

89 Thunderbird, no tail lights

Having the same issue somewhat. Tail lights and dash lights quit. Checked the headlight switch wiring harness by looping all other prong holes back to the main power and they all work, so mine must be the switch. Having a real hard time finding a switch that matches the old one, even though they say it is a replacement. I paid the $25 at and they have quite a few wiring diagrams for the car.

There is a round 3 inch rubber cap directly behind the bulb assembly. Pull it off with your hand or pry it with a screw driver. With that cover off you can reach in and turn the bulb assembly counter clockwise a 1/4 turn then it pops rite out. There is a white clip on the bulb assembly that must be undone to remove the bulb. Re install in reverse order.
