Some of the newer styles you just remove the whole assembly then replace the light and re-install it again . You will need a long , either Phillips head screw driver or a long number 8 torques bit driver. The other way is you have to re move a lot of things from around the area of the Bubble.

How to replace the bulbs from daytime running light from my buick enclave 2010

Just did it - was easy!

1. Turn the tire fully inward on the side with the bulb burned out
2. Remove the 5 phillips head screws securing the tire shroud to the fender
3. Flex the tire shroud away from the fender and slip your hand in; turn the bulb holder for the daytime running light 1/3 counter clockwise and remove it from the housing
4. Pull the 3157 bulb straight out and replace it with a new one (push straight in to put the new bulb into the holder)
5. Replace the bulb holder into the housing by inserting it and turning 1/3 clockwise. IMPORTANT NOTE: one tab on the holder is larger than the others - this tab faces forward to the front of the car (this way the filament will be parallel to the front of the car when secured so the light shines correctly and fully)
6. Replace the 5 screws to secure the shroud to the fender.

That's it!!

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

  • 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..

    I recently had some front drivers side damage to my car. The head light was smashed and the wheel well pushed in far enough that it occasionally rubs against the wheel when I make right turns. I've managed...

    Mr Pinske,

    The rear running lights aren't on the same circuit as the headlight(s). To get the car legal for
    night driving, replace the broken headlight (both need to work to drive legally at night),
    and tackle the running lights as a separate project.
    First thing to check on the running lights - the bulbs. Why: incandescent light bulbs that are
    on at the time of an impact cannot withstand the impact and the filaments can fail, so fixing
    your rear running lights may simply be a matter of replacing the two light bulbs.
    If the bulbs are ok, your accident has caused a wiring fault, which you will locate
    between the ignition switch and the rear running lights.
    Here's the manual on how to replace the headlight:

    1993 Buick Century
    Non-European Style
    See Figures 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5
    1. Remove the headlamp trim panel attaching screws.


    Fig. 1: Remove the headlamp trim panel attaching screws

    1. Remove the headlamp bulb retaining screws. Do not touch the two headlamp aiming screws, (at the top and side of the retaining ring), or the headlamp aim will have to be readjusted.


    Fig. Fig. 2: Remove the headlamp trim panel assembly from it's mounting location

    1. Using a screwdriver, remove the retaining ring screws.

    Fig. 3: Using a screwdriver, remove the retaining ring screws


    Fig. 4: Once the retaining ring screws are removed, the ring can be pulled away

    1. Pull the bulb and ring forward then separate them. Unplug the electrical connector from the rear of the bulb.


    Fig. Fig. 5: Pull the bulb out and unplug the electrical connector
    To install:

    1. Plug the new bulb into the electrical connector.
    2. Install the bulb into the retaining ring and install the ring and bulb.
    3. Install the trim panel.
    Replacing the European style headlights is a slightly different procedure.

    I have a 2002 x-type jaguar,i need to replace the front lights that are burn i need to take the hole front bumper off? how?

    Inspect/Replace-I don't think that removing the bumper is necessary. There can be slight variations in procedure from one model to another when replacing headlights. For instance, on some models the turn signal light assembly must be removed before the headlight can be replaced. Overall, however, the procedure does not differ much from the following typical instructions.
    Make sure the replacement bulb is the same type and part number as the one that is being replaced.

    • Remove the headlight bezel retaining screws. Remove the bezel. If necessary, disconnect the turn signal lamp wires.
    • Remove the retaining ring screws from one or both lights.
    • Remove the retaining rings.
    • Remove the light from the housing. Disconnect the wiring connector from the back of the light.
    • Push the wiring connector onto the prongs at the rear of the new light.
    • Place the new light in the headlight housing. Position it so the embossed number in the light lens is on the top.
    • Place the retaining ring over the light and install the retaining ring screws. Tighten them slightly.
    • Check the aim of the headlight and adjust it, if necessary.
    • Install the headlight bezel. Secure it with the retaining screws.
    • Connect the turn signal lamp wiring (if it was disconnected).

    I have a short to ground problem with my tail/crtsy light circuit ( keeps poppin fuses when the light swith is pulled to on position) also dash lights & tail lights don't work but interior light is on...

    Try removing the bulbs from the rear tail lights you have one 2 bulb system shorting out, so one at a time remove the bulbs then replace the fuse and see which one is bad or just buy new bulbs and replace, also could be front running light blinker light. But sounds like brake light to ground threw bulb.

    Audi A4 need to replace rear brake light on audi a4

    Inside the boot is a plastic cap embeded in the boot liner. Remove the cap to reveal a screw. Undo the screw and the whole rear light cluster will come away in a sideways and not rearward direction to reveal all of the bulbs. Hope this helps.

    Replace 2005 GMC Sierra Daytime Running Lights...

    Open the hood, and in the top right and left corners of the primary headlamps you'll see two pins (L shaped) swing them out (towards the front of the truck) and lift out. This allows you to remove the upper headlamp assembly. You can then remove the lower assembly by pushing outwards on the plastic clip that is hooked into a metal clip. Once it's out you just turn the bulb to remove it.

    It's much easier if you unhook the leads to the upper assembly's bulbes so you can set the whole thing aside.
