Headlight globe, meaning the inside of the headlight? If thats what you mean, only way to do it, is to take the lens off, and in order to do that, you need to take out the headlight, take off the rubber backings and take out the light bulbs. Then preheat your oven to 210 degrees, stick your light in there for 10 minutes, and pry apart the lens, since the glue will melt. Dont forget to undo the clips that also hold the lens to the housing. After you pry off the lens, clean or whatever you need to do. Then reseat the lens and hook the clips, then back in the oven it goes for 10 mins. Then hold pressure on the lens untill glue hardens.

Hope that helps.

They will not have or sell replacement globes, it will come with the whole headlight.

Brake light and license plate lights won't work


All lights rely on a good connection between the globe base and the metal body of the car.
This is the cause of your problem.
You'll probably find rust in the globe holder stopping the globe from making a good connection.
You may have to replace the globe holders, but it will be worth trying to clean the rust back to bright steel.

I have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The driver side brake light does not work when the headlights are on. It does work when the headlights are off. The passenger side works fine during both.


Sounds like a bad earth connection in the light fitting.
First, Check how well the metal base of the globe fits into the socket. If it is a bit loose remove the globe , squeeze the sides of the metal socket with some pliers so that the globe fits snugly in the socket. If it is still not working correctly check where the earth wire from the Light Assembly is attached to the body. Remove. clean and re-attach securely if necesary.

How do I replace the headlights on a 1988 town car?


Under hood, remove large plastic wether cap from back of light, remove 3 point lug from unit, depress the rounded end of the retaining spring inside the open area,
while depressing it push it over to one side to release the pressure off the globe, remove globe, new globe will fit in only one position, be careful not to touch globes end with fingers as the oil in your skin is dtremental to its operation. assmbly is then in reverse. Good luck

I need to clean or replace the headlight globe


your headlights are leaking water inside, and with the heat from the bulbs it condenses into fogginess,let me give an idea! if you have access to the bottom of the light, drill a hole that the water can drain.
that might work.!
