How to change headlight assembly


You can't get at them from the engine bay. You've got to remove the plastic grill on the front of the car, to get at other screws, and take a few screws out that hold the entire headlight assembly in. Do not unscrew any of the screws above or below the lights. These are for adjusting the angle of the headlights. You'll have to readjust them if you do. Not a big deal, just unnecessary if you don't touch them.

There should be 2 screws on either side of the headlight assembly. Spray some penetrating fluid on them. I broke one with very little pressure because I didn't. Sheared the head right off the shaft.

Once you get the headlight assembly out the bulbs come out with a quarter turn of the socket. Remember not to touch the new bulb with your fingers. Oil will create hot spots and it could crack the bulb. If you do then clean it with a high percentage alcohol before putting it in.

Changeing headlights


I assume you're referring to the bulbs and not the entire assembly:

First, you have to remove the turn signal assembly. For this, you need a small star shaped screwdriver and remove the 1 screw holding the turn signal in place. Pull straight out and remove the bulbs from the signal assembly by turning the sockets about 1/4 turn. Set that aside.
Second, there's 3 bolts that will be holding the headlight assembly in place. One is accessable from the engine compartment with the hood up. The other two are located under the headlight. (All of them face the front of the car). Remove all three and the headlight will be able to swing out, giving you access to the sockets and bulbs. Remove the bulb connector from the bulb first, then twist the bulb retaining ring and pull the bulb straight out after the ring is off.
Reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.

If you're looking to completely remove the entire headlight assembly, it's the same process, but the piece that lets the headlight swing out (instead of coming off completely) must be removed. It's a simple plastic ball and socket swivel. Just tug hard and the ball will come loose from the socket.

Dirt inside my headlight


  • Open the hood of your Honda Civic, and identify the headlight assembly that has the dirt inside of it. Depending on the year of your Civic and side of the headlight, you may need to move the power steering reservoir to gain access to the light assembly.
  • 2 Squeeze the clips on both sides of the headlight assembly to release the headlight connectors. Use your fingers to loosen the headlight, and pull the small plastic tab to loosen the rubber gasket from the frame.
  • 3 Unplug the wiring harness from the back of the bulb. Twist the bulb, to remove it from the headlamp assembly.
  • 4 Locate, and remove, the screws that hold the headlight casing in place. Once the screws have been removed, gently guide the headlight casing from the location.
  • 5 Inspect the assembly under a bright light, identifying any cracks that may be in the casing. If there is a crack, use a silicone sealant to seal the crack.
  • 6 Dry the assembly, using a towel and or hairdryer.
  • 7 Replace the assembly back into your Honda Civic, and secure it by replacing the screws you removed.
  • 8 Replace the rear gasket where the bulb is inserted with a new gasket. Insert the bulb, and twist it into place.
  • 9 Reattach the bulb wiring harness.
  • 10 Turn the lights on, and re-aim the light assembly. good job your done

    How do you remove a headlight on a 1990 ford ranger?


    1. do you mean the headlight assembley?


    2. Open the hood of the truck and locate the two screws on the top of the trim bezel. Remove them with a Phillips screwdriver then move to the front of the bezel and locate the four screws in the face of it. Remove them with your Phillips screwdriver and set them aside.

    3. 2

      Pull the trim bezel off the front of the truck and set it aside. There are three clips along the bottom edge of the bezel; they may require you to pull harder than you think you should but they will let go if you pull hard enough.

    4. 3

      Locate the four screws at the corners of the headlight assembly. Remove the screws with a Phillips screwdriver then pull the headlight assembly toward you until you can reach the headlight bulb connection on the rear off the assembly.

    5. 4

      Release the locking tab on the headlight bulb and pull the wiring harness connector off the bulb. Set the harness aside and remove the headlight assembly off the truck.

Pull that tab up just to the point where it releases…pull too far and it locks again. 7) Next, locate the other locking bracket which is a metal bracket in the center-rear of the light assembly. This bracket is held down by a screw. 8) Remove the screw with a 10mm wrench. Lift the bracket just like you did the white bracket. You should now be able to pull (or pry) the entire light unit forward a little. Depending on the size of your hands this might be enough.

    How do you replace the headlight assembly on a 99 Pontiac Grand Am?


    1. Open the hood to your Pontiac Grand Am. Have the car keys on you, but not in the ignition and make sure the lights are in the "off" position.
    2. Step 2 Locate the splash guard and the plastic push pins that hold it down. It runs along the entire front frame rail. Removing the entire splash guard will make it easier to to remove even one headlight on one particular side.
    3. Step 3 Remove the pins by lifting up on the center of the pin. Pull it up about 1/4-inch and then pry the pin insert and pin out of the hole.
    4. Step 4 Locate and remove the two-headlight assembly bolts on the the top of the headlight assembly. Use the ratchet and a socket to remove the bolts.
    5. Step 5 Pull the headlight assembly forward by hand. Be careful not to scratch the lens of the assembly or scratch the paint on the front bumper.
    6. Step 6 Unplug the wire from the back of the headlight that is blown out.
    7. Step 7 Turn the headlight bezel counterclockwise (about 1/4 turn) until it releases the headlight from the back of the headlight assembly. Extract the old headlight and discard it.
    8. Step 8 Insert the new headlight into the headlight assembly. Be careful not to touch the glass of the bulb. Handle it only from the bottom.
    9. Step 9 Replace the bezel and turn 1/4 turn clockwise until it locks into place.
    10. Step 10 Plug the wire back into the headlight and rest the assembly onto the bumper gently so you can turn on the lights to test and make sure the headlight it working properly.
    11. Step 11 Insert the headlight assembly back into place. Replace and tighten the headlight assembly bolts.
    12. Step 12 Put the splash guard into place and place the push pins into position. Insert the pin and its insert into the hole with the pin still in the "up" position. When the insert is seated flush to the splash guard in the hole, simply push the pin down to lock.

    Headlight bulb size for a 2002 grand prix


    You need a 9007 bulb

    In order to change the bulb, just loosen/remove the two bolts holding the entire light assembly in (side marker, headlight and turn signal) Once these bolts are removed the entire assembly will shift / slide out away from the center of the vehicle. Once the assembly is removed you will have access to the wires/bulb.

    Headlight assembly has a crack in it and the bulb blows out when it rains


    4 screws. 2 above, 2 below.
    It screws into a bracket assembly that does all of the adjustments, so you don't even need to realign.
    I would suggest getting the replacement before starting.
    Here's a link to an aftermarket replacement (cheaper then factory)
    http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/featured/body_parts/1461452503.html

    Remove the bulb, remove the screws, pull out the old assembly.
    Put the new one in, plug in the bulb, you're ready to go.
