How to change headlight lamp drivers side


On the back, engine side of the headlights there is a rectangular plate which allows access to the bulbs (lamps) to remove this there are locking bars, pry these, up and down away from the plate, remove plate.
The headlamp bulb is the larger one and is retained with a spider clip, above the bulb pinch the spider clip and push slightly forward while opening the pinch. The bulb should now be loose with a wiring block attached.
Slide the bulb out of the recess, remove the wiring harness by pulling the block away from the bulb.
You can now replace bulb, which should have a protective sleeve of foam or card protecting the glass, do not touch the glass of the bulb, touching the glass will cause the bulb to blow when it gets hot.
To replace bulb, push spider clip away from recess, while holding the metal part of the bulb remove sleeve and insert bulb into recess, turn the bulb to ensure it has seated flat into recess, refit spider clip over bulb pushing forwards then pinching, refit wiring harness.
Check the lights to ensure bulb is working.

Tip

Brake Lights Dull or Flickering - All Cars



Dull or Dim Brake Light Repair: If your car has a dull or dim brake light it is dangerous to you and other drivers. A dim brake light is a mystery to most people because the bulb is working, just not correctly. First confirm a new and correct brake light bulb has been installed. Next, turn the ignition key to the "on" position and have a helper depress the brake pedal. With the bulb installed touch a grounded test light to the outer bulb holder ring. If the bulb brightness changes the bulb socket ground has high resistance and needs to be repaired or replaced.

Flickering Brake Light Bulb Repair: A flickering brake light bulb can be very distracting and annoying. A brake light flickers because the power or ground is being obstructed momentarily. The most common cause for this condition is a loose fitting bulb socket. To check for this condition remove the brake light bulb in question, while a helper hold their foot on the brake pedal move the bulb around slightly in the socket. If the bulb flickers replace or repair the bulb socket as needed to regain proper brake light bulb operation. If the brake light bulb socket tests ok wiggle the brake light fuse and wiring at the brake light bulb socket, brake light switch and turn signal switch (American cars). If the brake light bulb flickers repair the component or wiring as needed.
Preferred Procedure: Always replace brake light bulbs with manufacturers recommend replacement bulbs. If you cannot find the correct replacement bulb part number consult an auto parts store for additional manufacturer information.
Common Problems
When brake light bulbs are replaced with the incorrect bulb causing no or dim brake light operation
If the brake lights stay on continuously it could mean the brake light switch has failed or an adjustment is needed.

Headlight bulb replacement on renault modus


Replacing a dipped head light bulb on a Renault Modus.

Having recently purchased a 2008 Modus with the passenger side dipped beam head light bulb not working. Concerned that posts on this matter talked about removing several body parts or a costly visit to the Renault dealer.

It's a simple 10 minute job. It is a little tricky with limited access and restricted view. However - its as simlpe as - remove circular cover from rear of bulb holder - remove the clip on connecter and push to side. You need to pull the wire clip above the bulb slightly to the side from its holding and it flips down and out of the way Be careful not to detach the clip from its holding points below the bulb - it's extra hassle to put back in.
You can now remove the old bulb - replace with the new bulb. Make sure its sitting correctly in housing. Re attach the clip to its holding point above the bulb. Replace the connector.Replace the circular cover to the rear of the bulb holder.

It takes 10 minutes - cost me under five pounds for the replacement bulb. Hope this helps.

How to replace headlight assembly


  1. Open the vehicle's hood and secure it in an upright position.
  2. Unplug the harness connector that attaches to the rear of the headlight.
  3. Unfasten the locking ring which secures the bulb and socket assembly, then withdraw the assembly rearward.
  4. If necessary, gently pry the socket's retaining clip over the projection on the bulb (use care not to break the clip.) Pull the bulb from the socket. To install:
  5. Before installing a light bulb into the socket, ensure that all electrical contact surfaces are free of corrosion or dirt.
  6. Line up the replacement headlight bulb with the socket. Firmly push the bulb onto the socket until the spring clip latches over the bulb's projection. WARNING
    Do not touch the glass bulb with your fingers ! Oil from your fingers can severely shorten the life of the bulb. If necessary, wipe off any dirt or oil from the bulb with rubbing alcohol before completing installation.
  7. To ensure that the replacement bulb functions properly, activate the applicable switch to illuminate the bulb which was just replaced. (If this is a combination low and high beam bulb, be sure to check both intensities.) If the replacement light bulb does not illuminate, either it too is faulty or there is a problem in the bulb circuit or switch. Correct if necessary.
  8. Position the headlight bulb and secure it with the locking ring.
  9. Close the vehicle's hood.
