Question about Chevrolet Cars & Trucks
My headlight socket is completely melted, I was going to replace it but the wiring is inside the headlight housing & I cant get to it. How do I get into the headlight housing? It looks like the only way is to take the rubber seal off but if I did that how would I seal it back up? Please help!
Pull the rubber seal off they are more like rubber caps and they come off to change the bulbs.
However for a completely melted socket I would go to a salvage yard and pull the whole assembly so the socket comes with it. They are cheap and very easy to pull. Because I would be concerned about a melted socket and I personally would not even put bulbs in I would just get the whole assembly from the salvage yard.
Here is how to pull the whole assembly: look under the plastic flap on the front under the hood there is a white tab. The flap is right next to the headlight and just lifts up. Then on the other side of the headlight assembly there is another white tab and is more visible and you may have noticed it before. Press both of those tabs and be careful not to drop it because it will come loose. Then just disconnect the plug and you are now ready to either replace it or replace the bulbs. This just makes it easier to replace the bulbs then just reverse what you did and don't forget to plug em back in.
One other thing don't touch the bulbs with your bare hands use latex gloves because if they are halogen then fingerprint oil don't agree with them and can blow them.
The whole thing is not that hard just take your time and you won't have to pay anyone to do it for you.
