Replace bulb headlight

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.

Headlight bulb replacement

Surprisingly, your owners manual is one of the best sources for information on headlight replacement and taillight replacement. I learned this a few years ago myself, it's the only repair instruction they put in a automobile owners manual.

Fuse panel

Unfortunately this is not a fuse issue. It would be if both headlights were blown. The fuse controls both headlights not just the one. I would be inclined to think either a.) you may have gotten a bad bulb from the store. or b.) you have a broken wire somewhere or c.) a ground wire broken. I would try replacing the bulb again just to eleminate that being the problem (and if its not you got a spare bulb just in case then) and go from there. Good luck and thanks for using fixya!

Driver side Headlight Replacement

I am car stupid. Just following the instructions in the owners manual, I was able to replace my low beam driver side bulb in less than a half hour. Only one tip. When it says pull straight up on the tab, definitely oil it first. I snapped the tab off and cut myself because it didn't have enough give.

How to remove/replace headlight bulb

I just replaced the bulb in the driver's side headlamp on my 2005 Scion xA without having to remove any screws, bolts or the grill. It's very simple, but it helps to have small hands. Just take the cover off the fuse box to allow more room for your hand. Reach in with your left hand and unplug the wiring assembly. Remove the rubber cover by using leatherman pliers. Squeeze the two sides of the spring clip together to release the bulb. Don't worry, the spring is hinged at the bottom, so you won't lose it. Take out old bulb & replace with new. Reverse steps, making sure you align the center hole of the rubber cover so that the three prongs of the bulb are protruding.

Blown headlight

There are 3 or 4 bolts on the headlight housing that you have to remove first. Then pull the whole light assembly out from the front of the vehicle. You can then access the lights from the back of the housing assembly and replace the bulbs.
I was told by my local KIA dealer that if you buy the bulbs from them, they will replace them free of charge if they burn out. SLIM CHANCE being that KIA doesnt warranty anything, but that is what I was told. I have replaced the headlight bulbs atleast 6 times in 2 years.
