SOURCE: how to change bulb on drivers side low beam head light

My niece has a jimmy, they should be the same. The inside should be the high beam, the outside the low, DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS ON NEW BULBS! Oil will cook on them and pop them! Both come off the same way. Take off the big rubber thing. They are soft but over hard plastic. Just pull them off. If you have trouble, you can flip the little wire clips that hold the headlight housing in place, this will give you room to see the rubber caps enough to figure them out better. The bulb assembly rotates CCW counter clockwise, and should slip out easily. Take the wires and plug off. it should be obvious how it pulls off. Snap the new bulb into the wires without touching the glass part. Gently replace in backwards order as you removed it. Put the rubber caps on, they keep water off the bulbs. It will break them!

The passenger side was harder for me. I had to take the air cleaner off, the whole cover and filter.You should be able to see or feel the same type caps, The low beam outside, High beam inside. The same 2 wire clips are there to release the housing. Everything pretty much goes the same, other than the air cleaner has to be removed and replaced. And make sure the rubber cap is replaced! Good Luck and good motoring!

SOURCE: How to change passenger side low beam headlight.

check out the type of bulb you need at your local auto parts store. if it plugs into a socket in the rear of the light, be careful NOT to touch the glass part of the bulb when replacing it. it will put the oil from your skin on the bulb and when it reaches operating temps it will blow again Just figure out what type bulb it takes and repost if you need assistance.

SOURCE: the low beams dont work but the high beams do. we

Hi, it might be a fuse that is blown as the high beam and low beam work on 2 different circuits because of the current that each circuit use. If all the fuses are fine you should look for power on the light socket where it connects to the bulb. If there is no power you will need to see if you have power from the switch. If the switch does not give power to the wire leading to the relay the switch can be replaced. If there is power from the switch to the relay, but not from the relay to the lights you need to replace the relay otherwise it might be that you have a bad connection or broken wire

You have a short in your electrical system or a bad connection, make sure that all the ground connections are good.

Headlight low beams won't work

It could be the relay! It is most likely is located in the engine bay . could have dust in the relay plug . try using compressed air on the relay plug next time you are at a servo. Also you should heard the relay click when the low beams are switched on.

Check fuses, most vehicles have head light fuses for high & low or right & left, or you may have a connector problem at the bulb.

Low beams do not work but High beams do

Yes you are... but only the bad onemake sure must be carefully when you take out the old bulbs. take this with you to the spare part..ask the store for the same type...and some times you must say to them type and brand of your car.
when you install new bulbs remember don't touch the glass area 'cause can make light not bright...good luck
