Low beam headlights working

How do I replace the low beam bulb in a 2004 Buick Rendevouz? I pulled the white clip up & took out the screw on the side of the headlamp sturcture. The thing still won't lose up so that I can replace the bulb. There's got to be a third release I can't find. What release am I missing?

You are correct there is a third connection from the Headlight assembly to the car but it is made with the white pull-up connector. There are actually two plastic studs that are both holding the lamp assembly to the vehicle but they are both released with the one white pull-up clip. Make sure you are pulling up and forward on that clip to release the hold on the HL assembly. After you remove the white clip and the side fastener the HL assembly will come out. Sometimes you will have a wresting match with it to pull it free as they do get stuck after time. One way I loosen them up is by smacking them with an open hand with just the right amount of force, just be sure not to hurt you or the assembly and take off your rings.

I just Replaced a Low Beam Light bulb on a 2005 Buick La Sabre.

If You use a Metric socket and Remove the Two Silver bolts Attaching the headlight Assemble onto the metal surrounding the the lamp assembly it comes out to the front. This makes it much easier to access the bulb. Twist it counerclockwise & it comes out by pulling gently on the bulb. Then by realeasing a tab that is the socket holder bulb can be removed & replaced with a New #9006 low beam halogen light bulb. Wrap a Paper towel around the bulb & do NOT touch it with your bare hand as this wiil ruin a halogen bulb,

SOURCE: Low Beam Drivers Side doesn't work ... low voltage,

Power for the headlights on the Left side (High and low beam.) comes from the same fuse... The ORANGE wire and the ORANGE/BLACK are the same, they connect in the harness. If you only lack the 12v to make the light work connect them at the headlight assembly.

If your low beam also lacks ground the Left low beam ground is shared with the right low beam ground... Run a wire from left low beam DARK BLUE to right low beam DARK BLUE/WHITE.

If its not working now then your cursed, seek a witch doctor.

Prius headlights work only on highbeam


There should be separate fuses for high and low beams on a Prius. If one of your headlight bulbs is bad, it could have blown the low-beam fuse. Check for blown fuses behind driver's side headlight fuse panel. If new one blows, replace headlight bulbs and try again.

On 2004-2009 Prius, driver's side headlamp bulb can be replaced by removing hold down screws and folding fuse panel upward to access rear of headlight assembly. Large round cover with 3 tabs unscrews about 1/4 turn to remove. It's really tight and held by friction of large O-ring so it'll take some muscle but it will eventually give. Be careful replacing bulbs as metal clips can be easily installed incorrectly resulting in tilted headlight beam. 3-tabs must rest on flat surfaces on mounting area before spring clip can be latched in place. 3-prong plug can be wiggles sideways/up and down to remove from bulb.

How do you change a low beam headlight bulb on a 2008 Buick Allure?


I actually did change my low beam bulb with ease. I took pictures to help with step by step procedures.

Step 1.
3_24_2013_7_01_41_pm.jpg

Step 2.
3_24_2013_7_17_35_pm.jpg
Step 3.

3_24_2013_7_18_07_pm.jpg
Remove the red dotted plastic plugs out. So you have wiggle room.
Once removed all the red dots, where the green dots are you can gently lift it past it, and pull it towards the front away from the engine.

Step 4.
Find the white latch and pull it up to the little square:

3_24_2013_7_12_18_pm.jpg

3_24_2013_7_12_29_pm.jpg
This you will see if you have pulled to far up, it has to match up with the little white square.

Step 5.
Black Latch, pull it up just the same way for the white latch, but you will need to unscrew the lock screw.


3_24_2013_7_14_49_pm.jpg
Step 6.



3_24_2013_7_20_15_pm.jpg
The light bulb port has to be turned clockwise to unscrew, opposite to lock back it in again.
Step 7.

Once done it should like this, and you will need to a flat screw driver to pop the little clips on the side of the holder and replace bulb.

3_24_2013_7_23_02_pm.jpg
Step 8, put everything back together and you are done.

How do i change a headlight


1.FACE THE VEHICLE SO THAT BATTERY IS ON YOUR RIGHT;

2. REMOVE THE BLACK PLASTIC PIECE THAT RUNS OVER RADIATOR BETWEEN HOOD LATCH AND FAN. IT IS ABOUT 53 1/2" LONG AND HOLDS THE HOOD PROP CLIP. (3 PLASTIC PUSH RETAINERS & 2 SHEET METAL SCREWS);

3. REMOVE THE GRILL ASSEMBLY UNDERNEATH THE PIECE IN STEP 2 BY PUSHING DOWN FIRMLY ON 4 RETAINER CLIPS WHICH RUN ALONG THE TOP. USE A WIDE SLOT SCREWDRIVER. PULL UP GENTLY ON GRILL ASSEMBLY. IT WILL POP OUT. THE GRILL ASSEMBLY EXTENDS UNDER EACH HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY (HA) AND IT DISPLAYS THE CHEVROLET LOGO IN THE MIDDLE. MY GRILL ASSEMBLY POPPED OUT EASILY AND ALL THE OTHER RETAINER CLIPS ON THE BOTTOM AND BENEATH AND TO THE SIDE OF HA WERE AUTOMATICALLY RELEASED WITHOUT ANY FUSS;

4. ON TOP OF HA SEE ONE TAB (ABOUT 1" LONG)ON THE RIGHT SIDE AND ONE ON THE LEFT (THE ONE ON L IS CLOSER TO THE FENDER);

5. PULL UPWARD DIRECTION ON TABS. THEY WILL SLIDE UPWARD A COUPLE OF INCHES AND WILL RELEASE THE HA WHICH YOU CAN THEN PULL OUT TOWARDS YOU;

6.AT BACK OF THE HA, REMOVE 2 ROUND RUBBER CAPS (ABOUT 4" IN DIAMETER)--ONE FOR LOW BEAM--ONE FOR HIGH. REVEAL BULBS. UNSNAP THE WIRE HARNESS FROM BULB BASE AND TURN BULB 1/4 TURN CLOCKWISE (REMEMBER YOU ARE FACING THE TRUCK)

7.REPLACE BULB(S). #9006 BULB IS GRAY-BASE, FOR HIGH BEAM ON OUTSIDE. #9005 IS BLACK-BASE, LOW BEAM TO INSIDE OF HIGH BEAM.

CHANGING HIGH AND LOW AND REASSEMBLY TOOK ABOUT HALF HOUR. GOOD LUCK.

ALTERNATIVE:
IF YOU ARE REPLACING THE PASSENGERSIDE HEADLIGHT JUST REMOVE THE AIR FILTER COVER AND PULL PLUG OUR FROM BEHIND HEADLIGHT AND REPLACE. BE CAREFUL HANDLING LIGHT BULB.
TO CHANGE THE ONE ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE JUST REACH IN FRONT OF THE BATTERY TO ACCESS THE PLUG AND HEADLILGHT. TOOK ABOUT 5 MINUTES. ENJOY YOU TRAILBLAZER, GREAT TRUCK.

First face the vehicle so the battery in on the right.
Second open hood.
Third Remove the Grill by pushing firmly on two retainer clips that are on the top, use the wide slot screwdriver to get the rest of the clips off. Pull up gently on the grill it should then pop out. The grill extends under each headlight assemblymag-glass_10x10.gif any other retainer clips should release when the grill in popped out.
  • Step 2 Fourth on top of the headlight assembly you will see one 1" tab on the right and left side, pull the tabs upward about two inches and this should release the headlight assembly. You then should be able to pull the headlight assembly out toward you.
  • Step 3 Finally at the back of the headlight assembly you will see two rubber caps one for low beam and one for high beam, the white base is for the low beam and the black base is for the high beam. Unsnap the wire harness from the bulb base, turn the bulb clockwise.

    Replace the bulbs high beam on the outside and low beam on the inside.
