Replaceable Bulb 1985–89 200 SERIES AND 1987–89 700 SERIES

  1. Make sure the headlights are off and the ignition is OFF.
  2. Working from under the hood, release the clip and remove the wire connector from the back of the lamp assembly.
  3. Unscrew and remove the large locking ring on the back of the headlamp.
  4. Remove the bulb and its holder; replace them as a unit WARNING
    When installing new bulbs, never touch the glass bulb with your fingers. The grease will develop a hot spot on the bulb and radically shorten its life.
  5. When reinstalling, make sure that the bulb sits properly in the reflector assembly. Tighten the locking ring and reattach the wiring connector.

I think this info is on the sticker under the Hood, or on the beam alongside the radiator.
Just make sure to remove the Fuse first, before you change the bulb.

Replace headlight


Should be an easy fix. Open the hood and go to the light in question. You do not in most newer cars have to replace the hole headlight. They are making them more like tail lights now. You just take the center of the light bulb from the back and twist and pull. The little bulb should be looking at you nw. Then you can either push in and twist or just pull it out. Denpending on your model. If you are having difficulty then ask the people at the parts store to show you. They will be happy too if your buying their parts. Keep me informed and please give me a thimbs up. The Raz Shack

How do I change the headlight assembly on a 1998 chevy tracker


I am not familar with your headlights but thewre are two basic types of headlights. The first is when you just replace a bulb. To do this you open the hood and look at the back of th eheadlight. There may be a area with wires running up to it that twists or pops off. The other style is where the complete headlight is replaced. In this situation there should be a series of screws that hold a thin metal frame over the headlight. Every car is different. On my toyota truck I have to pull the grill before I can get to the screws that hold the metal frame that holds the headlights on. You might pick up a haynes manual from autozone (about $20 usually) for your vehicle but a headlight replacement is usually not something they show because it is usually very straight forward. You could go to autozone and ask them what type of headlight replacement you need. If they sell you a bulb then it is replaced from under the hood. If they sell you a complet headlight then it is replaced from the outside. You can ask them to show you what needs to be done and if you get a good guy or gal, they will show you.

Looking for help in replacing low light bulb in headlight for 2002 volkswagen beetle turbo.


It is a pain in the ****. There is a handle under the hood, behind the headlight that slides to release the whole headlight lens. It sounds easy but the slide is usually got all kinds of dirt and rocks in it and won't slide.

Replacement turbo chargers


My best advice to you would be to check www.passatworld.com Look into the forums and use the search function. There is an unbelievable amount of information with just a little bit of searching. And there may be some turbos for sale on there as well. If you can't find anything in your price range, check out a chip... slightly cheaper and just as much power gain as you would from a larger turbo. You will have to chip it if you drop in a larger turbo anyhow. Hope this helps!

If the light casing needs replasing then im pretty sure you have to remove the upper bumper, but if its the bulb thats blown the you should be able to do it from the engine bay. I hope this information helps im sorry i couldnt help more but im not a vw specialist.

The 2003 Sable has the same headlight assembly and removal/replacement instructions as the 2001 Sable. Once I had this information in hand, bulb replacement was easy.

How to replace low beam bulb on 2004 baja


I was able to locate an owners manual for the vehicle. The large plastic weatherguard protecting the headlight bulb connections needs to be rotated CCW about 90 degrees, and removed to provide access to the bulbs. Then remove the center connection for the low beam and release the spring clip retainer to release the low beam bulb. Replace with new bulb and reconnect/reinstall retainer clip, center connector wire, and weatherguard. Note that this is the procedure for the Turbo Baja...non-Turbo model is different.
