You can access the bulbs from inside the engine compartment. the socker turns about a quarter turn to remove it. do NOT touch the bulb with your fingers as that will shorten the bulb life. you may have to remove the battery to change the one on that side.

Replace 2006 buick lucerne passenger headlight


I have replaced headlights on my 2006 Lucerne. I tried the cheater ways but there was no getting past taking the front end off. The front end is held together with plastic rivets (5ZLY9) from Grainger there are three screws 10mm that hold the lights in and two screws that hold the bumper up besides the rivets. Take it all off and the bumper comes off exposing the headlights. I replaced ALL the bulbs since there was so much work involved.

I have a 2008 aveo. i took off the headlight but i can not get the plastic casing off to change the bulb.


If you are talking about the headlight casing, where the clear headlight casing connects to your back headlight casing, that isn't the way to change the light bulb, you're going to damage the seals that protect water, and humidity.

fIRST YOU SEE A RUBBER GASKET SURROUNDING THE HEADLIGHT PLUG IN THE BACK OF THE HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY. pULL OFF THE GASKET AND LET IT HANG ON THE SURROUN DING HEADLIGHT WIRES. tHEN PULL OFF THE HEADLIGHT WIRE HARNESS BY GRABBING THE SOCKET (NOT THE WIRES). AROUND THE BULB IS A THIN SILVER HOLDING SPRING THAT LOOSENS BY SQUEEZING THE ENDS TOGETHER AND ROTATING IT. iT WILL LOOSEN AROUND THE HEADLIGHT. WHEN THIS HAPPENS THE HEADLIGHT WILL "FLOP" AROUND AND PULL IT OUT, REMEMBERING TO SEE HOW THE THREE CONNECTORS ARE LOCATED (I.E - IS ONE CONNECTOR AT 12 O CLOCK POSITION AND THE OTHER TWO ARE AT 9 AND 3 OR ARE THEY AT 3,6 AND 9, ETC.). rE-ASSEMBLY IS THE OPPOSITIE. tHE TRICK IS TO GET THE THIN SPRING WIRE BACK IN PLACE. YOU HAVE TO SQUEEZE THE SPRING AND RE-POSITION IT SO IT KEEPS THE BULB SECURLY IN PLACE

Having just changed the bulb, I would advise taking the whole headlight assembly out first. It is near impossible to feel or imagine how to change the bulb without seeing it. First, use a phillips screwdriver to take the single screw holding the strip off just below the headlight assembly. By doing so, you will now see the other two bottom bolts holding the headlight in. Take all four bolts out then disconnect the bulb from behind. Then proceed as above.

Can't replace 2005 Chevy Aveo headlight


You do not need to take the headlight assembly out. It is not a sealed beam. There is a ring that locks the light bulb in, found on the back. The drivers side is much easier if you remove the battery. As with all Halogen bulbs, do not touch the bulb with your fingers as it will shorten their life.

Need to replace a headlight assembly for a 2006 Subaru Outback.


No, you just remove the radiator grill and the side marker light and the headlight housing bolts and it comes out. Not a real hard job and is Real straight forward. Good luck and have a good day.

I can't find the access to the the head lamps to my 2001 impala t


Unless you can fit your hand in between the body an the back side of the headlight assembly, you probably are going to have t remove the whole assembly, alot of vehicles now are that way, the whole assembly has to be removed to access the headlight bulb. Hope this helps.

Front light not working


replace the headlamp bulb. I just had to replace both the headlamp bulbs in an '05 model. Neither low beam was working. You'll have to pull the whole headlamp assembly out, but they tell you exactly how to do it in the owner's manual. Hope this helps.
