Some bulbs are really tough to remove on this car. Specially the front side lights. You have to first remove the panel in front of the tires. Hope this helps.

Most of the headlights do not unbolt to change bulbs. If it's a blown bulb you're trying to replace, look on the back side of the headlight housing. There should be a plug with wires attached going into the back. This plug should twist either to the right,left or up or down. Once you've twisted this plug out of the headlight housing you'll see the bulb you need to replace. Unplug the wire harness from the blown bulb and place it into the new bulb, being careful not to touch the new bulb with your bare hands as any oil or other contamination will cause these bulbs to blow as soon as they are turned on. Place the new bulb with harness back into the socket in headlight housing and twist into position.

How do i change head lights on a pontiac g6


Which ever side you are looking to change, you will find an 8 to 10mm bolt. Once you remove that bolt located near the headlight housing, you lift up on the bar that you just took the bolt off of, then once you have the bar up, gently pull out the headlight housing starting from the inside pulling straight out, thats it. Remove the bulb, and replace in reverse order.

Replace driver side lowbeam headlight on a Honda 2005 Civic EX


  1. 1 Locate and remove the power steering reservoir from behind the driver's side headlight assembly. Pull straight upward, sliding it off its mount and set aside for access to the headlight bulb. Make sure you keep it upright so it does not spill.
  2. Step 2 Locate and remove the electrical connector from the back of the bulb. Depress the locking tab to release it and pull the connector down, removing it from the bulb.
  3. Step 3 Turn the bulb counterclockwise ¼-turn then pull the bulb straight out of the headlight assembly. Insert a new bulb into the headlight assembly and turn it ¼-turn clockwise to lock it in place.
  4. Step 4 Install the electrical connector by plugging it into the bottom of the bulb. Push the connector in until the locking tab engages the bulb, securing it to the bulb.
  5. Step 5 Slide the power steering pump reservoir onto its mount.

Can't replace 2005 Chevy Aveo headlight


You do not need to take the headlight assembly out. It is not a sealed beam. There is a ring that locks the light bulb in, found on the back. The drivers side is much easier if you remove the battery. As with all Halogen bulbs, do not touch the bulb with your fingers as it will shorten their life.

Headlights


I had to put new headlights on my 96 taurus couple of years ago, from what I remember their is a forth bolt at the back of the headlight next to a guage to angle the light left or right up or down, this bolt(holds the bottom of the headlight while the others anchor the top) is in the middle between the back two bolts that you have already removed. Once you remove the housing, twist the black ring and pull to remove the bulb.
