Side bulb blown

How do I change the bulb on the front side light?
I tried to take the headlamp out but it seems like a major dismantling job, surely there is an easier way.
I took it to Halfords and they didn't know.

How to replace drivers side front headlight unit on 2003 vauxhaull vectra


The bulbs are little devils to get hold off due to the lack of space and light inside the bonnet. So when dealing with the main beam pull out the side bulb and turn on the side lights. This will give you some light in the tight space. Before you undo the spring clip, attach a piece of fairly rigid plastic tubing (about 6 inches long) to the bulbs terminal. Make sure that the tubing is a firm fit, then undo the clip and withdraw the bulb using the plastic tube. This should insure that you don't drop the bulb into the headlamp cover or the car's floor pan like I did. Also notice which way around the bulb is located i.e.: the bulb flange is "D" shaped and can only be fitted one way round. Use the plastic tube to grip the terminal of the new bulb and guide it into the bulb's headlamp slot. Make sure that the flange is located correctly with your fingers, and then apply firm pressure to the tube to hold the bulb in place and relocate the spring clip one side at a time. The covers on the back of my headlights were just made of rubber and just pulled off rather than screwed. The job is awkward and more touchy feely than seeing what you are doing, but it two bulbs can be changed in under an hour

How to replace bulb in front bumper turn signal housing 1995 jag xj6


hello,
  • Identify the blown bulb. Note that if a headlight bulb has blown, the dip beam is on the outside and the high beam is on the inside. Turn off the ignition switch and light switches.

  • Open the hood and replace any blown headlight bulbs. Press the plastic spring clips and remove the bulb holder from the assembly. Pull the bulb out of the bulb holder and replace it with a new bulb. It only fits one way. Be sure not to touch the bulb's glass. Replace any parking lights at the same time, they are in the headlamp unit too.

  • Remove the front turn signal light unit in the bumper to change the turn signal bulb. Push gently on the inside edge and insert a blade between the bumper and the lens at the outside edge. Compress the spring and remove the lens. Fit a new lamp by inserting it into the plug. The side marker light is changed using a similar process.

  • Open the trunk to replace the rear fog light, stop light, tail light, reversing light and turn signal light. Remove the rear light cover and turn the bulb holder fastener 90 degrees counter clockwise. Remove the expired bulb, fit a new one and replace the parts, turning the bulb holder clockwise.

  • Thanks..

    2005 chevy equinox headlights went out, only the driver side bright light works. Does this mean the passenger side headlamp is blown?


    Sounds like you are right own...to change each bulb...you need to remove the chrome grill from the front center...be sure to pry up the clips carefully so not to break the trim bar...then each headlight assembly is removable with 3 10 mm bolts...do not touch your exposed fingers on the new bulbs...yes the low/high bulb is one unit...that is why I believe it is just your bulbs...about $11. each...Hope this helps.

    Headlights wont come on. Running and tail lights fine. Wont come on even if manually put them on. Emerg brake not on, fuse seems fine...


    Is neither the high beam nor low beam working? Neither the left side nor the right side for each? Knowing this could help isolate the problem. It could be anything from a simple case of blown headlamp bulbs to a burned-up headlamp switch to a defective Daytime Running Lamp Module. I will say, however that I have seen quite a few problems with the headlamp bulb sockets on several of the GMs.

    1997 ford contour tail lights won't work but brake lights do already changed bulbs what fuse is for parking light


    There are 2 fuses,left and right, so I dont think both could be out? fuses. 33 and 35. make sure they have power on both sides of the fuse. If one side has power, its blown, if no power, the headlamp switch is bad, or bad connection. The RED/BLACK wires coming out of the headlamp switch go to those fuses. 33-35

    Changing Low Beam Headlamp Replacement 2005 Mazda 3.


    Check out the following:
    It's not easy. You need a flashlight. First, take the batter vent assembly off by removing the screw over the headlamp assembly. Open the battery box by snapping off the tabs, lift out, and move the vent to the side. Second, disconnect the headlight wire by pressing down on the opposing tabs located on the side of the connector and pull straight back. Move the wire to the side. Next, peel the rubber fitting around the bulb (located on the back of the headlamp assembly). Look inside the headlamp assembly with a flashlight to see what you got yourself into. You'll have to unhook the retainer wire that holds the bulb in place. This requires you to push the top part of the wire toward the front of the car and lift up. The wire should swing to the left (passenger side) releasing the bulb and bulb housing. Pull the old bulb out of the housing (it might be tight), replace with the new one (try not to touch the glass). Replace the bulb/housing. Make sure the little tap fits back into its slot (upper diver side). Push the wire clamp back over the bulb, pushing up back and down making sure it's hooked and your done. It seems easy once you've done it.
    Good luck! EJ Kudelka

    Changing parking light bulb in front


    Fisrt of all remove the Plastic fixings from the top of grill then carefully place your hands in the bottom grill slots and give a sharp pull,this should release the inner push type fixings (4 in all, one on either side of the headlamp towards middle of car and one either side at the wing)(very tight fit) the to release the outer edge ones carefully run your hand along the bottom of the headlamp and behind the plastic bottom edge of the grill the till you get as close to the wing as possible,then another sharp pull.Do this again for the other side and you good to go.On refiting make sure the two wing end pins are placed in first as these can be a pain if not inserted properly.. Hope this helps
