  1. Open the vehicle's hood and secure it in an upright position.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Remove the socket cover by pulling it straight off, or turning it clockwise then pulling it off.
  4. Carefully twist the bulb and socket counterclockwise, then pull the assembly from the headlight housing.
  5. Holding the base of the bulb, detach it from the connector harness.

To install:
  1. Holding the base of the bulb, install it securely in the connector.
  2. Install the connector and bulb assembly in the housing and twist to lock into position.
  3. Install the sealing cover by pushing it on and/or turning it counterclockwise. Make sure the cover is installed securely or the lens will be out of focus, or water may get into the light unit.
  4. Disconnect the negative battery cable and check the headlight operation.

How do i get to my low beams on my chrysler 2005 sebring sedan i got to the high beams perfect but the low beams right next to it has a metal barrier surrounding it which makes it impossible


Unfortunately, the answer I have is not a happy one =(. My wife has a 2005. In order to replace the bulb you will have to pull the Crutons (plastic push pins) that hold the front bumber cover on, remove the Headlight housing & replace the bulb that way. Shame on Chrysler for making it so difficult, in my opinion. But I hope this helps you to change the bulb =)

I have a 2005 chev impala can i replace my high beams headlights with just low beam lights


NO YOU HAVE TO REPLACE HIGH BEAM LIGHT BULBS WITH HIGH BEAM LIGHT BULBS BECAUSE HIGH BEAM LIGHT BULBS AND LOW BEAM LIGHT BULBS TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF BULBS.WEAR CLEAN LATEX GLOVES HANDLING THE HEADLIGHT BULBS WHICH IS HALOGEN LIGHT BULBS, OIL FROM FINGERS OR HAND WILL CAUSE HALOGEN BULBS TO OVER HEAT BLOW OUT.

On my 99 jetta My headlights don't turn on only the driving orange lights and the hight beams work but there is only one bulb for both? And my wiper lever doesn't work the wiring is all messed up and...


have you checked the fuse for the head lights? it only has one bulb for both low and high beams, so it could be the low beam fuse that went out, and if not replace the light bulbs, but make sure you check the fuses first.. good luck!

Both low beam lights dont work on my 2005 Toyota Corolla.; but my high beam lights do. I have already checked the fuses. Fuses okay. Is this a switch problem or should I check the bulbs first.


CHECK THE BULBS FIRST! TRY REPLACING WITH A NEA ONE ON ONE SIDE, AND TURN LIGHTS ON, IF YOUR LOW BEAM LITES UP, REPLACE THE OTHER ONE! IF NOT THERE COULD BE A WIRING PROBLEM TO THE LOW BEAMS

Front end light adjustments


The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.
