In a 97 s-10 pickup the headlight is actually a sealed beam, in other words, you will be buying a whole light and not just a bulb, easiest way to do it is to remove the silver trim around the headlight itself on the outside held in with 4 screws then open the hood and look at the mechanism that tilts and turns the light, i believe you dont need to fool with that too much and the light should slide right out the front, i will go check my truck and get back to you but as i remember you just need to pull the light out the front of the grill. hope that helps

Trying to change headlight bulb but can't get hand in there to get it out


You may have to remove the headlight housing first. There should be two long screws holding the light to the radiator support.
Be careful with the adjusting pins.

How to replace headlight on a 1997 chevey camaro


You will need a torx wrench to be able to replace your headlights. There is bracket that hold your headlights on. Unscrew the 4 screws (2 on the bottom and 2 on the top) of the bracket and pull the bracket off. Disconnect the wires from the old bulb.
Once you get the new bulb screwed in make sure to check the level located on the bracket is at it's optimal position.

How do i cahnge my front headlight bulb


It is fairly simple to change your headlight bulb. First you need to buy a replacement bulb - typically the auto store will have a catalog with different models for your bulb. (Different brightness usually) My replacement bulb had the model 9004.
DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS OF THE BULB WITH YOUR HANDS - the oil on your hands will cause the halogen bulb to burn out faster. You should be able to handle just the plastic part in the rear of the bulb.
Remove the old bulb (at the back of the headlight assembly) by twisting off the circular "cap" that keeps the bulb in. You can then detach the bulb socket and remove the old bulb. Insert the new bulb carefully and attach the bulb socket. Then twist the cap back on.
Good luck!

We own a 1997 ford f250 4x4 and the head light


The headlight bulb is a fairly simple replace. If involves removing the old light by reaching behind the hedlight where the socket with the wires goes into the headlight. It usually is just a quarter turn or a squeeze and turn kind of motion. Once the socket is out of the headlight then you will be able to simply pull the bulb out and replace with a new one...NOTE...do not touch the new headlight bulb with your fingers...we have an oil that is naturally produced in our skin and can make your new bulb fail prematurally. Use a paper towel to install the new bulb or a gloved hand.

I want to change my headlights on a 1997 grand marquis


The headlights are a sealed unit. All you can change is the bulb, which is done from the rear of the headlight. You squeeze the nylon lock on the bulb socket, turn it counter clock wise, and pull the socket out. Then pull the bulb, and replace it. Be careful not to touch the new bulb with bare fingers. The natural oil on your fingers will cause premature bulb failure.

How do i get to the blinker bulb on the 97 olds 88ls in the fron?


To change the blinker or headlight bulb on an 1997 Oldsmobile 88: Open the hood, remove the plastic cover thing so that you can see the housing for the light. On the back side of the housing there are three clips, remove those (I was able to remove them with just my fingers). Once the clips are removed the whole headlight slides out the front of the car. Now you can easily replace any of the blown bulbs.

Pretty straight forward. Open hood. Pull up on plastic cover over the headlight your going to fix. Low beam is the outside bulb. Rotate bulb counter clockwise ~1/4 turn and pull out. Reverse procedure to replace. Nuttin' to it!! Make sure that the old bulb comes out with an o-ring at the base. I usually have to remove it manualy. The new bulbs have new o-rings attatched.
