( 2003 BMW Z4 )My right side headlight does not work. I changed the bulb still not working. What could be the problem? The mechanic says I should get a whole new unit that runs at about 1200 at a junk yard...


replacing the headlight unit will not solve your problem since your problem is about electricity.

try to search for a relay or fuse for your headlight, most likely you will see a relay since there is only a single fuse for both headlights. meaning of this fuse blows off, both headlights will not turn on. relays are attached to each headlight, so if one goes off, the other one will still work.

if this does not solve your problem, have an electrician check your headlight wiring connections.

How do i change headlamp bulbs


Changing the headlight bulb is a little bitdifficult for those not familiar with the vehicle. Both the high and low beamsare encased in a sealed unit, which also contains the turn signal, parkinglights, and side reflector. To change a single headlight, the entire headlightcompartment must be removed from the car. Once you understand how to remove thesealed headlight unit from the car, replacing the bulb is relatively simple.Follow the steps below on how to change the headlamp bulb in this car. Removal 1. Open the hood of the Jeep and locate thelong, headlamp jackscrew. The screw is located almost directly above theheadlight unit and can be removed using a 7-mm socket wrench. This will allowyou to remove the bezel from the grill opening panel. Remove the three screwsattached to the retaining ring to the headlight console. The screws are locatedon the bottom front and side of the unit. In some models the screws have beenreplaced with ball-stud alignment posts, enabling you to remove the headlightunit by simply wiggling it loose. 3. Disconnect the headlamp bulb wireharness connector located at the front of the headlight unit. This is locateddirectly above and between the parking and turning bulbs. 4. Separate the sealed headlight unit fromthe vehicle; disconnect and replace the old bulb. The high beam is locatedtoward the center of the car. The low beam is the bulb on the outermost edge ofthe unit. This is how to Install 1. Reconnect the headlamp bulb's wireharness-connector. Then Replace the headlight unit in the headlight canister. Positionthe retaining ring back in its original position and install the three screwsagain. If you wiggled the unit out, ensure that it is replaced firmly. 2. Install the headlamp bezel by replacingthe 7-mm jackscrew on the inside of the hood. Make sure all connections aretight before starting the car and inspecting the replacement.

I want to change my headlights on a 1997 grand marquis


The headlights are a sealed unit. All you can change is the bulb, which is done from the rear of the headlight. You squeeze the nylon lock on the bulb socket, turn it counter clock wise, and pull the socket out. Then pull the bulb, and replace it. Be careful not to touch the new bulb with bare fingers. The natural oil on your fingers will cause premature bulb failure.

How to change a front headlight


First, open your car hood, then right behind the headlight unit, you will notice two clips per side, they are long and straight with a hooked end. Using the hooked end, just lift the clip up and move it away from the headlight, the left (when facing the front) clip will be between the headlight and the battery cover.
After taking out the clips, the headlight will be loose from the car. Look behind the headlight and you will see the wires running into the actual light to the bulb. What you would do is twist the light out (I believe counter clockwise) and the bulb will come out with its mount. Then unclip the bulb from the mount. Then just put on the new bulb and make sure the sides clip into the mount.
Then carefully put the mount and bulb back into the headlight unit and then twist it in clockwise, you will feel it go in properly, if not lined up properly, it will not be smooth and won't stay in place.
Then put the headlight unit back into place, and secure it back to the car with the clips you removed.
Note: Make sure not to touch the actual glass of the new bulbs as this will make them last a shorter period of time. Good luck
