you replace the bulbs from the back of the headlight housing not separating the lens assembly.you may have to move things out of the way as there is very little room to get your hand in there to do the job.sometimes the manufacture has made it easy to remove the assembly to change the bulbs.it is usually 2 bolts(screws) that need to be removed(loosened) and the assembly tilted and pulled up or out away from the locking tab.you will have to look to see which way to do this.
It is not necessary to remove the entire grill, just the chrome trim piece that extends across both head lights. Use a small flat screwdriver and delicately pry the trim piece towards you. It is held in place by several small plastic tabs that are located across the entire back side of the trim piece. Be VERY careful in doing this as the chrome piece is very brittle & easily broken or damaged. Once you have the trim removed, you will need to remove 3 bolts that retain the headlight assembly and one press-in tab. The bolts have 10mm heads. Two are located on the top of the assembly, one on the lower corner. After removing the 3 bolts, pull the headlight forward to dislodge the lower retaining tab which is on the opposite side of the headlight housing from the lower bolt toward the rear of the housing. Once you have the assembly out, accessing the bulb is simple! This is not the easiest job to do, so it is a good idea to take painter's tape & protect the paint on the bumper & fender as well as the clear, Lexan part of the headlight assembly. Take your time, be careful, & you will get it right the first time!*******************ANOTHER OPTION**************************** For replacing the RF headlamp bulb without disaligning the lamp's output beam: Open the hood and remove the air intake assembly to access the back of the headlight housing; from here, you may reach the "bulb" by untwisting the coupling that holds the bulb in place. Afterwards you may release the harness/socket through the press-in tab that secures the bulb. Total time needed: 30 minutes.............a single bulb runs about $9 at most auto parts stores.
In order to change the bulb, just loosen/remove the two bolts holding the entire light assembly in
(side marker, headlight and turn signal)
Once these bolts are removed the entire assembly will shift / slide out away from the center of the vehicle. Once the assembly is
removed you will have access to the wires/bulb.
Upside down L shaped bracket that is bolted to frame just behind headlight assy. Unbolt bracket, lift bracket straight up to unlock headlight assy. Headlight assy should easlier fall forward to replace any of the 3 bulbs
You will have to remove the headlight assembly to whichever side is burneed out. It is a halogen bulb that gets replaced not the entire assembly. Careful not to touch the new bulb with your fingers as this will cause premature failure of the bulb.
Some imports require the entire light assembly to be removed in order to replace headlamps. Look to see if there are angled rods on the back side of the light assembly. If so, see if the can be pulled straight up towards the hood of the car. When they are released the headlight will be able to come forward. Good luck. Hope this helps.
Do you mean the entire headlight assembly or just the bulb?
If it's the entire headlamp look at the new one to see where the
fastening points are, the grill may have to be removed and also the
parking lamp lens, if it's just the bulb it's easy Open your hood look at the back of the headlight assembly and twist the bulb
holder ring to release it. Good Luck To You
