SOURCE: Headlight Issue

You can replace the bulbs wihout removing anything. The passenger side is super easy. The driver side is tougher because there isn't much room to stuff your hands, but it can be done. If you must pull the battery, make sure you have your radio security code on hand because you will need it after hooking the battery back up. I'd suggest not removing the battery and just taking your time to get the driver side bulb replaced.

SOURCE: 93 S10 left turn signals not working

Have you tried replacing the flasher? You'd think neither side would blink if the flasher was bad but I've seen this happen and it turned out to be the flasher. You could swap the signal flasher with the 4 way flasher to verify that's the problem before going out and buying one. Should be a few bucks at the parts store.

SOURCE: Remove and Replace Turn Indicator Bulb

Resolved! I finally just put the bulb in the palm of my hand and put my fingers on the plastic socket (which I had given the quarter turn to release from the housing) and gave it some good firm pressure and it snapped/locked into place.

SOURCE: I need to remove the right side headlight

No, you don't have to remove the front bumper. The headlight bulb is in a tight spot so you will need someone with small hands to reach it. Pull the rubber boot with the connector off
and there is a spring clip that holds the bulb in place, remove the clip and pull the bulb out
The connector inside the boot does not engage much on the terminals of the bulb. Click on the link below to read more:

My front passenger side blinker won't work. The rear one works fine. The dash indicator flashes really quick now too.

usually this is because of a blown bulb, replace the front passenger bulb and tell me if it helps.

My low beam headlights and my driving lights do not work. My high beams and fog lights do work. How do I fix this.

Turn off engine and open the hood.
Remove the front wheelhouse liner. Whichever side, say we begin with the front left(drivers). If you dont wish to remove the front left tire, just turn the wheels far to the right to gain enough clearance. And you dont need to remove the whole liner and all the screws and retainers. . Just remove only those nearest the headlight and front bumper area in order to loosen the front half portion of the wheelhouse liner. Just enough for your arms to move freely inside.
At this point, try your hands to reach in for the rear of the headlamp low beam. Work your hands inside to remove ccw the lamp cap, and then on the low beam bulb. Note the position before turning it counterclockwise to remove.

Note: If you still need more clearance for better access, you can (1) remove the tire. or (2) remove the 3 screws that secure the bumper to the body, and then pull bumper outwards to loosen.Try to reach in again. If still not possible for you, proceed with the next step.

Remove the front sight shield. This is the plastic shield with seven pop up retainers. After removing the front sight shield, you will get a better view of the headlamp mounting bolts.
Remove the 4 bolts of the headlamp assembly. Two on top, and one on both sides. Then pull the headlamp forward enough and try to reach in your hand to remove the bulb cover and then remove the bulb from its socket and connector. turn ccw to remove. Note also the bulb position before you remove it from its socket.
Need more clearance? Remove the remaining retainers(6) thats supporting the front bumper fascia from the top. It will be better if you have an assistant who can stretch out gently the loosened bumper on that particular side, while you carefully maneuver the headlamp assembly removal inch by inch. If in case still unlucky, or you if found later that the bulb connector is melted or burned, proceed furthermore and remove the headlamp assembly all the way.
A burned connector needs to be replaced and a new bulb installed, even if you find the old bulb not busted.
With all the parts removed, you wiill have a better view of all other components within that area, the park and signal bulbs, the horn, the fog lamp, so that the next time you need to work on them you'll have a better gameplan. It's a matter of practice. I know its kinda tedious job for many Acadia owners. Just imagine removing so many screws for one simple bulb. But if you'll be patient enough, and get the hang of it, you will be saving labor costs.and enjoy loving your Acadia.

I hope you remember how and where components were removed, so you wont be lost in the reinstallation. Okay ? I hope wyet-helped. goodluck. : )

How to replace bulb in front bumper turn signal housing 1995 jag xj6

  • Identify the blown bulb. Note that if a headlight bulb has blown, the dip beam is on the outside and the high beam is on the inside. Turn off the ignition switch and light switches.

  • Open the hood and replace any blown headlight bulbs. Press the plastic spring clips and remove the bulb holder from the assembly. Pull the bulb out of the bulb holder and replace it with a new bulb. It only fits one way. Be sure not to touch the bulb's glass. Replace any parking lights at the same time, they are in the headlamp unit too.

  • Remove the front turn signal light unit in the bumper to change the turn signal bulb. Push gently on the inside edge and insert a blade between the bumper and the lens at the outside edge. Compress the spring and remove the lens. Fit a new lamp by inserting it into the plug. The side marker light is changed using a similar process.

  • Open the trunk to replace the rear fog light, stop light, tail light, reversing light and turn signal light. Remove the rear light cover and turn the bulb holder fastener 90 degrees counter clockwise. Remove the expired bulb, fit a new one and replace the parts, turning the bulb holder clockwise.

  • Thanks..

    Low beam on head light wont work

    you may have a blown bulb. Believe it or not, Buick recomends the removal of the front bumper facia in order to remove the headlight assembly to change the bulb. you can however remove the air box where the air filter is located and squeeze your hand in there and change the drivers side bulb. It's allmost imposible to change the passanger side however. Good Luck

    Front side marker light bulb burned out. Can't figure out how to get to the bulb to replace it. I also have the ''top right'' brakelight bulb burned out & can't figure how to get to that bulb either....

    you actually have to remove the light from the vehicle to change the bulb. if its the one in the bumper you will have to loosen that side of the bumper to get to the bulb.
