Find and pull the fuse, put it back in, it is good because the light comes on. This gets rid of corrosion problems. If it still blinks pull the light plug and put it back in. (Corrosion again) after that replace the bulb.

This is often caused by a faulty bulb - replace it.

SOURCE: need to replace headlight bulb BUT being told

WTF !!!!
Who told you this exactly?
All you need to do is replace the bulb at a cost of a few dollars......Job done!......
Do it yourself, it's quite easy.
If you have the HID bulbs, then they will be more expensive than ordinary filament bulbs but certainly nowhere near $1500.
I'm from the UK so I don't know the prices in the USA.

I need to replace the front turn signal light socket on a 2000 Chevy Venture, but i don't know how to get it out and i can't find a replacement. How do i get it out?


There are detailed instructions in the the manual. If you do not have a manual, here is how to do it (directions assume removing drivers-side headlight assembly and viewing the area from the front of the van): Remove the thumb screw on the left side of the headlight assembly as well as the thumb screw on the top of the head light assembly. The third thumb screw simply anchors the turn-signal assembly to the head light assembly. Initially, just loosen that screw. The whole assembly is now loose but still held in by two plastic posts on the bottom of the headlight assembly and two plastic posts on the end of the turn-signal assembly closest to the fender/wheel area. Pull the whole assembly kind of up, out, and down. It takes a bit of juggling but it will come out. Once the whole assembly is out you can separate the turn-signal assembly from the head light assembly and put the headlight assembly back in place. To separate the assemblies remove the third thumb screw (if its too tight to remove by hand you will need a Torx screw driver of size T-30; if you don't have a Torx a small flathead screw can work); also, you will notice the hidden clip that is the final anchor holding the turn-signal assembly to the head light assembly. Use a flat-head screw driver to release it. Now the units should be separated. To remove the turn signal bulb socket from the turn-signal assembly, simply turn it counter-clockwise while pressing down on the safety clip and pull it out of the back of the turn-signal assembly. The owners manual lists the type of bulb. It should be an amber 3157. The bulb pulls straight out of the socket.

Replace the bulb. Place the socket back into the turn-signal assembly (turn it clockwise until the safety clip snaps). Replace the Headlight assembly (two thumb screws and the two plastic alignment posts anchor it), but do not tighten the screws until the turn-signal assembly is in place. Replace the turn-signal assembly by first aligning the plastic posts and then anchoring it to the head light assembly with the third thumb screw. Make sure everything is aligned properly and tight all the thumb screws. An experienced person can probably make this change, start to finish, in 15 minutes. First timers will probably take 30 minutes as it takes some time to understand how the designers anchored everything.

Good luck and thank you for using Fixya

Can't get passenger side marker light out on a 2007 kia spectra


There is one bolt on top of the radiator support and another in back. The assy fits into a pluug that keeps it aligned so it cam be tough to remove. Just wiggle it side to side while pulling and it'll slowly come out.

Are you looking to fix the bulb that is in the corner of the headlamp? You don't need to remove the head light for that. The is a black cap that screws off just beind it.

Removing the whole pop head lights assembly from my 1997 corvette


Raise the headlights, either with the switch or manually by turning the knob on the headlight motor counter-clockwise.
Unplug the lights NOW to avoid an accidental closing on your fingers,
Remove the 3 philips screws holding the black plastic surrounding the headlights, and slide it forward, there is a small clip on the top that helps hold it to a corresponding clip at the top of the headlight,
Look inside the cavity and you can see the 5 nuts/bolts ( 6 on later years ) that need to be removed,
If you are on the driver's side you can now remove the whole assembly, on the passenger's side you must first unplug the headlight door control module.

I have to replace the ballast for the HID headlights on my 2004 XC70 volvo and it is under the headlight assembly. I just need assistance on how to remove the passenger side headlight assembly


You need to remove the front bumper. Five push clips along the hood line, remove the headlight wipers (if equipped), one T25 screw in the front of each fender well, then two 12mm bolts under the headlights (1 each side). Then there are 4 10mm bolts holding the headlight in.

How do i change my front lights on my durango. The screws on front are stripped and my allen wrenches wont work.can i go from inside?


if your trying to change the bulbs you have to do it from inside by twisting the plug counter clockwise and pulling. however if your taking the whole headlight assembly out yur still messin around with the wrong screws, those allen screws are for headlight adjustment only,, ther are two bolts and a peg, the first bolt is sandwiched between the bumper and head light, the second is behind the head light and can be acessed by lifting the hood so the grille is out of the way and reaching in from the side they are 10mm bolts good luck

Unless you can fit your hand in between the body an the back side of the headlight assembly, you probably are going to have t remove the whole assembly, alot of vehicles now are that way, the whole assembly has to be removed to access the headlight bulb. Hope this helps.

Need to remove headlight assembly on a 2004 Volkswagon Touareg. I can't locate the removel clip. (last step)


Once you turn the octagon screw to release the light and push it forward or out of the front of the vehicle, take a light and look to the left side if your working on the driver side or the right side if your working on the passenger side and you will see a metal tab release. Take a long flat head screw driver and press down toward the ground gently. The headlight will be released and the whole assembly comes out as it has a plug/electrical connection on the back of the assembly. I just replaced my headlights, I have a 2004 Touareg with 44,000 miles and have already gone through 2 sets of headlights. The VW dealer will want $300.00 to replace 1 side! They have lost their minds. How long have you had yours and what engine do you have? Just curious if you have had any problems? My Touareg has just needed tires, brakes, headlights. I have done the brakes as well. They want around $900.00 + for front plus about 8 for the rear. If you need anything just hollar and if you have any questions just let me know if I canhelp.
