Passenger headlight is out./electrical box damaged

Passenger headlight is out. I was told that it is not the the bulb, but the electrical box connected to the right side of headlight isn't getting enough current to light the bulb. however the yellow light is lite. I took it to a nissan service center and they advise in order to check it out, they would charge $345 to remove bumper to get to headlight to test it. > The black guard over the tire was torn out and I think water got under the rim and fused out the box . you can see condensce in globe of the bulb as if steam is in the light. My question is is it problaly best for me to replace the whole globe or the sensor on the side of the globe. Nissan want $945 just for the globe, I checked ebay and they have one for $196 but does this include the electril box on side. ( I am a female with very little money due to unemployment, can you please assist in advise of the most economical fix

Why dont you start by checking the fuses for headlights refer to your owners manual for the location of the fuse box for your car. if the fuses are good then replacing headlight bulbs to both headlight assembly is your next step.If after replacing both headlight bulb you still have the same problem then you might have other electrical issues.

Removing low beam bulb on 05 subaruoutback


Whether they become damaged in an accident or simply burn out over time, your Subaru Outback's headlights may eventually need to be replaced. Fortunately, once you've purchased the right replacement bulb for your model year, performing the repair yourself is relatively easy. These instructions only apply to Outback models made after 2000.

  1. Undo the clips on the air intake ducts using a screwdriver and remove the duct from the engine compartment (driver's side bulb removal only.)

  2. 2

    Loosen the secured clip on the washer tank with a screwdriver and slide the tank horizontally to allow easier access to the headlight assembly (passenger's side bulb removal only.)

  3. 3

    Turn the bulb cover counterclockwise and remove it from the assembly.

  4. 4

    Disconnect the headlight electrical connector and undo the assembly retaining spring.

  5. 5

    Pull the old bulb directly out of the socket and replace it with the new one. Press the retaining spring back into place and reattach the electrical connector.

  6. 6

    Replace the bulb cover, and then turn on the engine. Test the new headlight to make sure it works before replacing the air intake duct or the washer tank and closing the hood.

    Replacing the High-Beam Bulbs
  1. 1

    Undo the clips on the air intake ducts using a screwdriver and remove the duct from the engine compartment ( drivers side bulb removal only.)

  3. 3

    Disconnect the headlight electrical connector and undo the assembly retaining spring.

  4. 4

    Turn the headlight bulb counterclockwise and pull it out of the socket.

  5. 5

    Reinstall the new bulb, replace the retaining spring and reconnect the electrical connector.

    Test the new headlight to make sure it works before replacing the air intake duct or the washer tank and closing the hood.

Can you help me change my headlight assembley? i have a 97 200sx SE


1.) Pop the hood to your Nissan. The headlight assemblies are only accessible from the engine compartment.

2.) Clear the area behind the bulb you are replacing. If you are replacing the passenger side bulb, you will need to remove the radiator overflow bottle. The bottle will unhook from its connective tube by pulling it toward the front of the car and up from the ground. If you are replacing the driver's side bulb, you may need to remove the battery. You will do this by unscrewing the positive (red) and negative (black) terminals that connect the battery to the engine, and then lifting the battery straight out of its housing.
3.) Remove the electrical connection on the back of each headlight assembly. This will be a bundle of wires with a wide plug sticking into the back of the assembly.
4.) Unlatch the plastic clip holding the headlight assembly case in place.
5.) Pry the small metal clip holding the bulb using your fingers or a screwdriver. Be careful not to bend, break or damage the clip or the bulb.
6.) Insert the replacement bulb into the headlight socket and reattach the metal clip that holds the bulb in place.
7.) Relatch the plastic clip holding the headlight assembly case in place.
8.) Reconnect the electrical connection to the back of the headlight assembly.
9.) Replace the radiator overflow bottle or the battery, depending on which bulb you replaced.

How do you remove the headlight bulb


  • Take the keys out of the ignition and switch the headlights off. Then, open the hood using the primary and auxiliary release latches.
  • 2 Use a socket wrench to remove the two 10mm bolts holding the coolant overflow bottle in place. Pull the bottle out of the engine compartment and set it on the ground (passenger's side bulb replacement only.)
  • 3 Undo the bolt at the top of the air filter box, lift the top open and remove the filter from the engine compartment. Then, undo the fasteners holding the air dam in place and remove it from the filter box (driver's side bulb replacement only.)
  • 4 Pull the entire air box out of the car to access the backside of the headlight assembly.
  • 5 Turn the bulb socket counterclockwise to remove it from the assembly. Then, release the retaining spring, undo the electrical connector and carefully remove the old bulb from the socket.
  • 6 Hold the new bulb by its plastic base and insert it into the socket. Reattach the electrical connector and replace the retaining spring.
  • 7 Switch the headlights on to test the new bulb. If it works, reinstall the air box or coolant bottle and close the hood

    I can't get to the high beam bulbs on our 2005 Odyssey. How do I remove the headlight for easier access to the bulbs?


    The procedure doesn't call for removing the headlight assembly. It is as follows:
    The high beam headlight bulb and the low beam headlight bulb are replaced the same way.

    Open the hood. To change the high beam headlight bulb on the passenger’s side, remove the power steering fluid reservoir from its holder by pulling it straight up.

    Remove the electrical connector from the bulb by pushing on the tab and pulling the connector down.

    Remove the bulb by turning it one quarter turn counterclockwise.

    Insert the new bulb into the hole and turn it one-quarter turn clockwise to lock it in place.

    Push the electrical connector back onto the bulb. Make sure it is on all the way.

    Turn on the headlights to test the new bulb.

    If you replaced the high beam headlight bulb on the passenger’s side, reinstall the power steering fluid reservoir.

    Hope this helps, but if you are having some specific problem leave a more detailed comment and I will try to help you.

    2006 Honda CRV Passenger both Low & High beams out (bulbs good)


    Well I suspect that you may have developed a problem in what's called the Multiplex unit. It's an integral part of the fuse box in Honda CR-V's. It's possible that the cargo trailer caused the problem by causing too much current to be drawn thru the system, I have a similar problem with my 2002 Honda CR-V and have been told I need to replace the multiplex unit and they are quite expensive. You may have to bite the bullet and have it checked by your nearest Honda Dealer.

    2001 Infiniti QX4 low beam bulb replacement instructions


    Look directly behind the headlight box if there is a rubber sleave covering the plug take it off. Unplug the wires from the bulb, there may be a saftey clip you will have to pry up to get it off.after you get the plug off the bulb holder should twist counterclockwise then it will pull right off.When you change the bulb just remember to wipe your body oil off the bulb before attaching it back into the headlight box. Then plug it back in and your in business. The high beam has three wires and the low beam has two wires. The bulb will have to be the right one.
