How do yo remove the left headlight assembly from a 2009 vw Routan?

I disconnected the negative battery terminal and can get the assembly loose but can get it out to change the HID bulb. Do you have to remove the front grill?

SOURCE: Driver side headlight bulbs burned out on 2003 VW Golf

There is a light cover in front of the battery... take this off and then look for the metal clamps holding the light housing in.  (I say clamps, but they're more like glorified paper clips on either side of the fixture.)  Press in on each side, pushing the clamps towards each other and pull the fixture out.

SOURCE: how can i change headlight


It's easy, under the hood on the headlight casing is a lever like thing, (careful it is fragile) pull the lever up or down (varies for diffrent models).
Push the entire headlight casing out toward the front of the car. (The casing will hang over your bumper). Pull out the headlight and plug the new one in.
Push the casing back in and lock the casing in with the lever. One note, there is some really sticky adhesive holding the light in, so you may have to push/pull hard to get it to slide out.

How to remove battery from 2009 bmw 328i

Disconnect the cable attached to the negative terminal first, then remove the cable attached to the positive terminal. Undo the battery securing clamp and lift the battery out. Be careful the battery is filled with dilute sulphuric acid and can give off Hydrogen gas so avoid any naked lights. Refit in reverse order, connecting negative cable last. If you remove the battery you will loose the code of the radio.

  • Open the hood and locate the battery. Remove the cable from the negative terminal (black cable) by turning the retaining nut on the cable clamp counterclockwise with a socket wrench until the clamp is loose enough to slide off the terminal. You must disconnect the battery's negative terminal to avoid a potential electrical shock when working on any electrical component in your KIA.
