Should be the same as my 95 Acclaim. There should be an adjusting slot on the top and the side closest to the grill. There is one underneath as well, but you can't see it. Use a small screwdriver to pry the adjusters out of their slots, then pull to disengage the lower one. Getting the lower one back on is a little tricky, but it shouldn't be too hard with a flashlight and some help.

How do I remove condensation from the headlights of a 1996 GMC Suburban 1500?


The reflectors and the housing usually have a small port or tube device to allow air to enter the housing to stop condensation. If there is a tiny tube or port that could be clogged, or the gasket to the lens is worn and leaking or cracked. You will have to dry out the condensation first before you reseal the headlight lens and housing. This means you will have to take it apart.

My headlight keeps going out, i replace it and then it shorts within a couple of days. i am wondering if it is a gasket or seal around the assembly allowing water to get in. if so, can anyone offer advice...


if u don't want to by a new headlight assembly(s) assuming that the lens isnt cracked, try putting some clear permatex around the lens. that should keep out the moisture.

Drivers side headlight bulb replacement


  1. Open the hood to the 1999 Dodge Stratus.

  2. Locate the two headlight lens assembly retaining screws at the top of each side of the assembly.
  3. Remove each screw with the ratchet and a suitable socket.
  4. Place the screwdriver behind the lens assembly to assist in prying out the guide pins that secure and align the headlight assembly. Hold the lens assembly from the outside edge (marker light/directional light section) first and pry from behind with the screwdriver to unseat the guide pins. Pry from the inside end of the lens assembly to unseat the other guide pin.
  5. Pull the lens assembly out far enough to reach behind it and disconnect the headlight bulb wire harness from the back of the bulb. Or simply remove the bulb by twisting the harness and retaining ring counterclockwise and remove it as an assembly.
  6. Turn the marker light/directional light socket and wire counterclockwise to remove it from the headlight lens assembly.
  7. Remove the assembly from the front of the Stratus.

How to take of the headlight leans to clean it on a 2004 hyundai elantra


most of the time the dullness in the headlight assembly cannot be due to the lens dirt. this is due to poor reflector which has dulled out in the years of use. open the assembly remove the bulb and use good quality liquid cleaners to clean through the bulb opening. use a dry cloth to polish and finish off.

How do I adjust the headlight beams on my 1991 Dodge Spirit?


I believe these have adjustment screws between the headlight bulb and the headlight bezzle on the top and bottom center of the headlight.

Crouch down so the bulb would be shining right in your eyes if it were on. You should see the adjustment screws I'm talking about in there.

You should be able to shine the lights on a garage door or wall and move the screws in or out to get the desired beam height you're looking for.

How to replace right blinker light on 2005 dodge caravan


Remove the assembly
  1. Open your tailgate.
  2. Look for two (2) round flat black discs about the size of a dime (but thicker) on the inside of the body (between the red lens and the weather striping).
  3. Using a pair of pliers, pull out each of these two discs.
    • Note they are in tight and may require a fair bit of force to remove.
  4. Make sure the inner part of the disc also comes out. There are two parts to this system, a grommet and a plug:
    1. Push the plug backwards through the grommet.
      • The grommet fits into the actual hole in the body, and is spread by the plug, the pressure holding them in place.
    2. Carefully remove both grommet and plug.
      • The lens assembly will fall away from the vehicle when you pull out the second grommet so be careful.
  5. Note the wiring harness that connects to a plug inside. Beside that plug are two holders for the actual bulbs.
  6. Remove the holder by pressing the sides inwards and pulling. The light socket should come out.
  7. Replace with the correct bulb (The 2004 Dodge Caravan uses an 3057 bulb that has a flat base with 2 wires running over it. Check your manual for your bulb.)
    1. Pull on the old bulb to remove.
    2. Press the new build firmly in.
  8. Check the light:
    • Press the brake pedal.
    • Turn on the signal light.
  9. Make sure it lights before replacing the lens assembly.
Troubleshoot and inspect
  1. While you have the assembly removed is a good time to check for signs of failure, or potential future failure. It's also a good time to clean things up.
    • Look for cracks and burns which can be a common sign of electrical problems. Replace any components that are too damaged to be used.
    • Clean the reflectors and lenses.
    • Use compressed gas, alcohol, soft rags or big Q-tips to clean heavy dirt accumulated on the auto tail lights.
    • Use the utmost care to prevent scratches on the reflectors or accidentally removing the plastic's coating.
    • Soapy water mixed with raw rice can be used to clean the tail light cluster.
    • After cleaning rinse with distilled water and allow to dry naturally for 24 hours.
    • Repaint the reflectors with silver paint to repair scratched reflective coating
    • Check for moisture. Moisture is one of the main causes of burned halogen auto tail lights. The trapped water vapor inside the light can cause it to explode or even burn out. Moisture inside the light usually indicates faulty seals and gaskets.
    • Replace crumbling gaskets:
    • Place a thin layer of silicon sealer in the seating groove.
    • Mix in a little oil while the silicon is still soft.
    • Allow this concoction to dry and get hard.
    • Check the electrical connections that join the bulbs. For a better connection, the spring connections on the bulb base can be moved towards the bulb base to generate more pre-load against the bulb.
Replace the assembly
  1. Slide the front edge of the assembly into the guide.
  2. Press the back end into place.
  3. Hold it in place and press the inner part of the grommet into the hole.
  4. Push the outer (central) part of the grommet into the inner part.
    • This takes a fair bit of pressure, and you must make sure that the hole in the inner grommet lines up with the outer plug grommet.
  5. Check the lights and you're done.

How to change the headlight bulb on a 2001 mitsubishi galant?


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.
