How do i remove the head loght on a chevy Malibu


Open up the hood. On the lens assembly there will be a couple of screws holding it in place. Loosen or remove these and pull the whole lens out the front of the vehicle. From there you can access the lamp for replacement.

How do i replace head light bulb to my honda pilot 2003


If you can reach it from behind you simply turn it and pull it out. Snap out the dead bulb and replace. If you can not physically get behind the lens then you need to remove the lens to gain access to your bulb. That is easy to do. There should be two or three bolts/screws holding the assembly in. Remove them and the lens will pull out. After pulling it out you can access your bulbs. Do no touch the surface of the new bulb on install. Your finger oils will shorten the life of the lamp

Replacing the headlights, lookin for help


Do you need to replace the LIGHT or the LENS?

The headlight is not too much trouble, go to your local auto parts store and get the correct light replacement.

With power off, open the hood, (usually you do not need to isolate the battery, but I am always advocating safety)

Go to the light you need to replace, the LAMP is configured with a plug in the back of it, unplug the lamp from the car's electrical system.

Next, press in and twist counter clockwise to release the old lamp from the socket.
DONT NOT TOUCH THE NEW LAMP GLASS WITH YOUR FINGERS.
Your finger (everyone elses too) have iol residue on them that will shatter the glass when it gets hot..

Use rubber gloves or a paper towel, and replace the lamp unsing the exact reverse of the removal procedure.

Reconnect the electrical plug, reconnect the battery, and test the lamp.

If it is properly in the socket, you should not have to re-aim it.

If you need to change the LENS, please get the Haynes or Chilton manual, it gives much better directions than I could here.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

How to replace driver side low beam headlamp


The lights are changed fairly simple, First of all you have to open the hood and look at the back side of the headlamp, you will see a screw on cap on the back of the headlamp system You may have to take somethings out of your way (Battery) I believe it may have to come out. Always disconnect battery by taking the Neg, off first and then positive, Now you should be able to get at the lamp by turning the lamp cover off counter clockwise, disconnect the wire by pulling tab up and unplugging it. Now you should be ready to remove and install the new lamp. ( Be Careful Not To Touch Lamp Glass With Your Fingers) Only touch the Plastic Touching glass will cause lamp to burn out premature

Replace passenger side power mirror clearance lamp (bulb only).


If you are facing the passenger side mirror adjust the top (large) mirror so that it is turning in towards the truck as far as it will go. Then look behind the mirror in the bottom righthand corner (outside bottom corner) and you will see a silver metal clip. Take a straight head screw driver and push on that clip and the lens will pop out. Then you simply unscrew the bulb holder from the lens and replace your bulb. Good luck!
