There can be slight variations in procedure from one model to another when replacing headlights. For instance, on some models the turn signal light assembly must be removed before the headlight can be replaced. Overall, however, the procedure does not differ much from the following typical instructions.
Make sure the replacement bulb is the same type and part number as the one that is being replaced.

To Replace:

  • Remove the headlight bezel retaining screws. Remove the bezel. If necessary, disconnect the turn signal lamp wires.
  • Remove the retaining ring screws from one or both lights.
  • Remove the retaining rings.
  • Remove the light from the housing. Disconnect the wiring connector from the back of the light.
  • Push the wiring connector onto the prongs at the rear of the new light.
  • Place the new light in the headlight housing. Position it so the embossed number in the light lens is on the top.
  • Place the retaining ring over the light and install the retaining ring screws. Tighten them slightly.
  • Check the aim of the headlight and adjust it, if necessary.
  • Install the headlight bezel. Secure it with the retaining screws.
  • Connect the turn signal lamp wiring (if it was disconnected).
Hope this helps!

How do I fix head light range control default on vw touareg

This fault is usually set because of high resistance in the headlight motors. Usually the problem occurs when the gear/rods get dirty and make it hard for the motors to move them. Sometimes the gears can strip out as well. You need to remove the headlight assemblies and inspect/clean/grease the gears and rods. In some cases, the gears and rods need replacement and you can purchase repair kits from the dealer rather than replace the entire assemblies

I need to change low beam bulb how to get old one

Depends on which side you are working on. The easiest way actually involves more steps, in my opinion. On the passenger side, take out the air box to access the 10 mm nut for the entire headlight assembly. Remove the two 10mm bolts on top of the headlight assembly, pull the whole thing out, mindful that the wires are still attached. Remove the cover to the bulb, unclip the wire holding the metal base to the assembly and remove the bulb. Pull on the wire connector to remove from the bulb. The reason this is simpler is because of the wire part that holds the bulb base onto the assembly. With the assembly in place, you can't get a good view of the thing to unhook it or re-hook it.
The driver's side is a bit easier--you only need a deep socket 10mm to remove the nut holding the assembly to the frame or if you don't have a deep socket, remove the fill tube for the winshield washer, then remove the nut. Remove the two bolts holding the assembly on top and continue as with the passenger side. DO NOT TOUCH THE BULB!!! Your fingerprint oils will cause the bulb to fail earlier than it should.

Head light removal

at the bottom of the headlight where it sits on the bumper you will have to push down on the bumper as the headlight gets caught on the lip of the bumper, they are a bit tricky, i hope this helps, also there is a sprung loaded clip that you need to relase once you have wound the head light forward, you will need a long bladed screw driver it sits on the side of the headlight near the front on either headlight

Need to remove headlight assembly on a 2004 Volkswagon Touareg. I can't locate the removel clip. (last step)

Once you turn the octagon screw to release the light and push it forward or out of the front of the vehicle, take a light and look to the left side if your working on the driver side or the right side if your working on the passenger side and you will see a metal tab release. Take a long flat head screw driver and press down toward the ground gently. The headlight will be released and the whole assembly comes out as it has a plug/electrical connection on the back of the assembly. I just replaced my headlights, I have a 2004 Touareg with 44,000 miles and have already gone through 2 sets of headlights. The VW dealer will want $300.00 to replace 1 side! They have lost their minds. How long have you had yours and what engine do you have? Just curious if you have had any problems? My Touareg has just needed tires, brakes, headlights. I have done the brakes as well. They want around $900.00 + for front plus about 8 for the rear. If you need anything just hollar and if you have any questions just let me know if I canhelp.
