Replace bulb headlight


Most of the headlights do not unbolt to change bulbs. If it's a blown bulb you're trying to replace, look on the back side of the headlight housing. There should be a plug with wires attached going into the back. This plug should twist either to the right,left or up or down. Once you've twisted this plug out of the headlight housing you'll see the bulb you need to replace. Unplug the wire harness from the blown bulb and place it into the new bulb, being careful not to touch the new bulb with your bare hands as any oil or other contamination will cause these bulbs to blow as soon as they are turned on. Place the new bulb with harness back into the socket in headlight housing and twist into position.

How do I replace the headlight assembly MN133516


The 2003 Outlander utilizes replaceable (9007) headlight bulbs. If you're looking to replace the bulb(s);
1. Raise the hood.
2. Remove the plastic cover at the rear of the headlamp assembly by rotating it counterclockwise, and pulling it off. This will allow access to the headlight bulb.
3. Twist the bulb socket counterclockwise in order to remove it from the headlamp assembly. Pull the old bulb out of the socket, and use a clean cloth to install the replacement bulb. Do not touch the glass of the new bulb.
4. Place the socket back into the assembly, and twist it clockwise. Reattach the plastic cover, and close the hood.
Are you needing DIY instructions for replacing the entire headlamp assembly? Left (driver) or Right (passenger)?

How do you replace the headlight bulbs in a 98 cavalier?


If you open the hood of the car, looking down, can you see the headlights? If no, remove plastic rivet covering the front of the car. There will be screws holding the headlight assembly in place.

Remove the screws and headlight assembly. Now, low beam bulbs are outside, high beams are inside. Twist out the old bulb and the new one in.

How do you get the headlight cover off a 1999 Mercury Gran Marquis?


You don't remove the headlight cover. You remove the bulbs from behind the lens assembly. Simply unplug the connector and twist the bulb to remove it.

How to replace headlights without breaking assembly.


You are supposed to remove the front bumper to take the headlight out.

However if you remove the vertical philips/10mm bolt at the far back edge of the bumper and a few of the upper 10mm bolts on the bumper cover, you can pull the bumper down far enough to access the one hidden bolt on the side of the headlight.
Just be careful you do not damage the paint when doing so.

How do i change a front headlight in a 98 gs400


If you are looking to remove the entire headlamp assembly, the one bolt under the bumper can be reached by either removing the bumper entirely, or just removing the bolts for the bumper and sliding the bumper out just far enough so that you can peel it back and reach that one headlamp assembly bolt.

If all you need to do is replace the bulb, you can remove the grey plastic cover behind the headlamp by twisting it off, undoing the clips (push in then out and swing them down), twisting off the bulb holder (attached to metal braided cable) and slowly sliding it out. Pushing in and twisting on the bulb will allow you to remove it. Keep in mind, space is limited and it is a bit tricky doing all of this, but it is do-able, without having to remove the entire headlamp assembly.

Remember to wear rubber surgical gloves if handling new HID bulbs and use extreme caution when reseating the holder after bulb replacement. Getting the clips back on after reinserting the holder is a bit tricky, just watch that the braided cable isn't in the way, swing the clips back up, push in toward the front then toward the center allowing them to catch under these little grooves/slits which hold them in place.

Headlights on a 1991 Honda Accord


the bulb gets replaced from the back the front headlight covers do not come off .You first have to unplug the wiring connector to the bulb you are replacing which sometimes is a pain then you twist the ring that's around the bulb to unlock it from the housing then pull the bulb straight out .If the bulb your replacing is on the same side as the battery you will need to remove the battery because there wont be enough room for you to access

Open your hood and there are 2 clips on the top of the headlight assembly. Pull up on both of them and the headlight assesbly can be pulled out. You will then simply need to twist and remove the old bulbs from the housing.
