1998 Olds Cutlass Headlight is out

I need to change the headlight in a 1998 olds cutlass and I can't get to the back of the assembly. It looks like you have to take the whole assembly out to get to it but I can't figure out how.

There are two strange fasteners that hold down a faceplate.

After you pull that up, there are two posts, that you pull up on. The assembly slides out.

If your just trying to replace a bulb you have to go from underneath the car. If you want to replace the whole headlight you have to pretty much take the frontend apart.

Replace low beam drivers side headlight on 1993 olds cutlass supreme convertible


Remove turn signal assembly (uses a torx 15 driver). This will expose the two 10mm bolts on the one side of the headlight assembly. Remove the plastic front grill (uses a torx 15 driver - there are about 6 screws). This will expose the other two 10mm bolts on the headlight assembly. Remove the four 10mm bolts to remove the headlight assembly and this will allow you access to the headlight you need to replace.

How to replace headlight glass cover


The car should have a plastic headlight assembly. What you do is replace the whole assembly. Usually has two clips that you pull to release the whole assy.If it has the old style rectangular glass headlamps then there is a chrome rectangular ring with 4 phillips screws 2 above and 2 below. You will need a good long phillips screwdriver and push hard as there will be some rust on the threads that you must break free without stripping out the head of the screws. Be sure to check to see if there is corrosion in the plug for the wiring harness and clean/replace as needed before reinstalling

Headlight and tail lights


Some cars automatically turn running lights or headlights on for added safety. Perhaps yours does. It should tell in your manual.

How do I change the headlight on a 1998 vw Beetle?


Lift the hood and if equipped remove plastic engine cover. On each headlight you will see plastic retaining latches. releasing these latches will allow the whole headlight assembly to slide out. Its a canister type assembly. You can then access teh bulbs to replace the lights. it reassembles teh same way
