How to replace headlights on 1989 toyota camry


1989 Toyota Camry

A little personal tip - if you get fingermarks on a halogen headlamp, you can wipe them off with rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) or, if you want to do what mechanics do, keep a number of 2X2 alcohol wipes in your automotive toolbox just to wipe off halogen headlight bulbs.

HEADLAMP REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Sealed Beam Headlamps

See Figures 2 and 3

Before making a headlight replacement, make sure that the headlight switch is in the off position.

1. Loosen the screws, release the clips and remove the headlight door. To release the clips, insert a flat blade screwdriver into the jaws of the clip and pry on the jaws.

2. Remove the beam unit retaining ring screws and remove the beam unit.

3. Compress the lock releases and disconnect the wire connector from the headlight. If the connector is tight, wiggle it while holding in the lock releases and pulling out.

Fig. 3: Do not remove the adjusting screws when removing the head lamp sealed bulb

Never try to loosen the aim adjusting screws. If the screws are loosened, the headlights will have to be re-aimed by a qualified technician.

4. When installing, use only a sealed beam unit with the same part number and wattage.

Composite Headlamps

See Figures 4, 5 and 6

Fig. 4: Headlight bulbs are inside the sockets located in the engine compartment

Fig. 5: Detach the wiring from the back of the headlamp bulb

This procedure only applies to replaceable halogen headlight bulbs (such as Nos. 9004 and 9005); it does not pertain to sealed beam units.

1. Open the vehicle's hood and secure it in an upright position.

Fig. 6: Twist and pull the bulb out, but do not touch the bulb if it is still good

2. Unfasten the locking ring which secures the bulb and socket assembly, then withdraw the assembly rearward.

3. If necessary, gently pry the socket's retaining clip over the projection on the bulb (use care not to break the clip.) Pull the bulb from the socket.

To install:

4. Before installing a light bulb into the socket, ensure that all electrical contact surfaces are free of corrosion or dirt.

5. Line up the replacement headlight bulb with the socket. Firmly push the bulb onto the socket until the spring clip latches over the bulb's projection.

WARNING
Do not touch the glass bulb with your fingers. Oil from your fingers can severely shorten the life of the bulb. If necessary, wipe off any dirt or oil from the bulb with rubbing alcohol before completing installation.

6. To ensure that the replacement bulb functions properly, activate the applicable switch to illuminate the bulb which was just replaced. (If this is a combination low and high beam bulb, be sure to check both intensities.) If the replacement light bulb does not illuminate, either it too is faulty or there is a problem in the bulb circuit or switch. Correct if necessary.

7. Position the headlight bulb and secure it with the locking ring.

8. Close the vehicle's hood.

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


hello,
  • 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..

    How do i change headlamp bulbs


    Changing the headlight bulb is a little bitdifficult for those not familiar with the vehicle. Both the high and low beamsare encased in a sealed unit, which also contains the turn signal, parkinglights, and side reflector. To change a single headlight, the entire headlightcompartment must be removed from the car. Once you understand how to remove thesealed headlight unit from the car, replacing the bulb is relatively simple.Follow the steps below on how to change the headlamp bulb in this car. Removal 1. Open the hood of the Jeep and locate thelong, headlamp jackscrew. The screw is located almost directly above theheadlight unit and can be removed using a 7-mm socket wrench. This will allowyou to remove the bezel from the grill opening panel. Remove the three screwsattached to the retaining ring to the headlight console. The screws are locatedon the bottom front and side of the unit. In some models the screws have beenreplaced with ball-stud alignment posts, enabling you to remove the headlightunit by simply wiggling it loose. 3. Disconnect the headlamp bulb wireharness connector located at the front of the headlight unit. This is locateddirectly above and between the parking and turning bulbs. 4. Separate the sealed headlight unit fromthe vehicle; disconnect and replace the old bulb. The high beam is locatedtoward the center of the car. The low beam is the bulb on the outermost edge ofthe unit. This is how to Install 1. Reconnect the headlamp bulb's wireharness-connector. Then Replace the headlight unit in the headlight canister. Positionthe retaining ring back in its original position and install the three screwsagain. If you wiggled the unit out, ensure that it is replaced firmly. 2. Install the headlamp bezel by replacingthe 7-mm jackscrew on the inside of the hood. Make sure all connections aretight before starting the car and inspecting the replacement.

    How do i change the daytime running lights?


    Below is how to change low beam or any other bulb in headlight assembly, the correct bulb for the low beam is 9006.
    Your grille and chrome bar are held to your truck with eight clips. You can see the top clips if you look. First VERY GENTLY!!! start pulling your grille until you start popping those clips out. Keep an eye on your chrome bar, because it is clipped into the headlight. GENTLY pull on the chrome bar at the headlight until the clips come off, then work your way over to the other headlight. The goal is to be take your time and be gentle until you have all the clips released. Set your grille aside(be careful not to scratch it). Each head light has two metal tabs on top of it, the outer tabs are slightly hidden in the fender. If you pull these tabs up, it will release the headlight from the frame of the truck(be careful not to let the headlight fall out and scratch your bumper). Once you have the headlight assembly out, pop off the circle rubber cover on the back of the unit. Your bulbs will be inside there, and make sure you don't touch the bulb when removing it. Just reverse the process when your done changing your bulbs. Don't forget to put the rubber cap back on the headlamp unit before you re-install it.

    How to change a front headlight


    First, open your car hood, then right behind the headlight unit, you will notice two clips per side, they are long and straight with a hooked end. Using the hooked end, just lift the clip up and move it away from the headlight, the left (when facing the front) clip will be between the headlight and the battery cover.
    After taking out the clips, the headlight will be loose from the car. Look behind the headlight and you will see the wires running into the actual light to the bulb. What you would do is twist the light out (I believe counter clockwise) and the bulb will come out with its mount. Then unclip the bulb from the mount. Then just put on the new bulb and make sure the sides clip into the mount.
    Then carefully put the mount and bulb back into the headlight unit and then twist it in clockwise, you will feel it go in properly, if not lined up properly, it will not be smooth and won't stay in place.
    Then put the headlight unit back into place, and secure it back to the car with the clips you removed.
    Note: Make sure not to touch the actual glass of the new bulbs as this will make them last a shorter period of time. Good luck
