How to replace the side marker/position light bulb on the driver side? I can't even get to it because i can't get the light housing off!


The Headlight Assembly is not difficult to remove but you do need to be careful NOT to pull on the Headlight Assembly and break the clips

1. Open the S60's hood and locate the pin that is behind the headlight assembly of the bulb that needs replacement. The pin has a handle on the top. Pull the pin straight out of the headlight assembly.

  • 2. Push on the back of the headlight assembly until it comes out the front of the S60. There is an electrical connection on the back of the assembly; unplug the connection.

  • 3. Press on both clamp on the assembly. The clamps are on either side. Push them in together so that the cover releases.

  • 4 Uncover the bulb by pulling on the small plastic cover that covers each bulb. Push the visible wire aside. Pull the bulb straight out.

  • 5 Push a new bulb in and push the metal wire back over it to secure the bulb in the assembly. Push the covers back on.

  • 6. Reconnect the electrical harness to the assembly and push the assembly back into place. Push the retaining pin all the way back down into place.

    Light does not turn on when door is opened


    Check the fusebox. It may be under the dashboard and/or under the hood, depending on the make & model of the vehicle. If your vehicle has glass tube fuses, you 'll notice one that's blackened in the centre or missing a piece of the wire. If it's the coloured plastic plug type, you are looking for one that's blackened in the centre or missing a piece of the metal in the centre. Either way:
    1) it will look different from the rest so check carefully.
    2) replace the fuse with one that has the same amperage as the burnt one.
    a) Tube type: amperage number will be stamped on the shiny metal end.
    b) Coloured plastic plug type: Besides using the colour codes, there is normally a number stamped on the side. If you can't read it, pull another fuse that has a similar colour and read the amperage.

    2005 jaguar x-type. Need step by step on how to change low beam light on the driver's side.


    Its easy but access is a little difficult. I moved the hose a little out of the way to get a few extra mm by opening the battery cover and fuse box. Then on the light, just flip the 2 clips on either side of the black plastic cover to open. You will then see a centre electrical connector and a separate smaller one. The centre one goes on the bulb - just pull it off. Then there is a spring clip holding the bulb in - release both sides and take out the bulb. Put in a new bulb making sure never to touch the glass part. Reverse all the above and the job should be done.

    My 1976 Coupe de Ville has no warning lights (row on top of dashboard above speedo) except the generator. How do you replace the bulbs, the workshop manual is not very clear but suggests the whole dash...


    Headlight switch bulb:-- The headlight switch will come out of the dash by pulling firmly on it, you may need to twist it slightly, don't be too worried if it seems very resistant to coming out, just pull hard!
    Once you have the switch out of the dash, you can disconnect the connector block from the back of the switch by pulling on it.
    The next thing to do is to remove the bulb holder from the back of the switch, you will see two small black plastic prongs , the easiest way to do this is to use a long nose pliers and pinch the prongs together, then pull the bulb holder out of the switch.
    Pop in the new bulb , reassembly is the reverse of disassembly! if you have a problem getting the bulb holder back in, you may need to pinch the plastic parts around the bulb to ease it in.

    Clock and warning light bulbs :-- This is actually very straight-forward, first of all remove the speaker grill from the drivers side, just two small torx screws holding it in. If you look through the windscreen from the outside of the car you can see the various bulb/holders (these come in one piece). Obviously you need to work out which ones you need to replace. The larger ones near the top are the main clock bulbs, and the smaller bulb holders a little lower down are for the various warning lights. To remove these all they need is a quarter turn and they will pop out.

    Heating, fan switch, ashtray etc. bulbs:-- There are two possible methods of replacing the bulbs for these components, if you have small hands and are very dextrous the easiest way is to remove the stereo and stereo casing, then feel around for the various bulb holders and replace the bulbs, if like me you think you will find this too awkward, you will need to remove the kickboard/kneeboard, as this will give slightly easier access. To do this follow the steps below:---
    First of all remove the lower shroud from the steering wheel, 2 torx screws on either side of the wheel and a large plastic screw that needs a quarter turn on the shroud itself (under the wheel). Next remove the ashtray, then remove the ashtray holder by removing the 4 screws and the centre 10mm bolt , you can now replace the ashtray bulb if required. Once you have the ashtray holder out you will see another larger bolt behind it, you need to remove this also.
    You now need to remove the centre console, first of all pull out the rubber between the console and the gearshift, then remove the 2 screws You may also need to remove the 4 screws attaching the plastic console to the carpeted section to ease removal. Once the console is out of the way, you need to remove the kick board. There are just 2 10mm bolts holding this in, you need to lift the bonnet to get at these there is one either side of the engine, right against the bulkhead

    Now that you have reasonable access to the bulb holders you should be able to change the bulbs ok, BTW you can also get at the bulb for the 'fasten seatbelts' light from here. Good luck!!
    Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

    How to change a headlight in a 2005 subaru forester.


    THE BELOW IS THE PROCEDURE FOR REPLACEMENT OF BULB IN THE HEADLIGHT, IT ALSO CONTAINS DETAILS HOW TO REMOVE HEAD LIGHT ASSEMBLY ALSO
    So step one - go get 3 (or 4 if you replace turn signal) bulbs. The front marker and side marker are the same bulb type.

    Step two - remove the middle grill. The top connectors are visible and you can use a flat-bladed screw driver to compress the side or top and jiggle them so they pop loose. One you get the top part of the grill loose - DO NOT just pull outward - you will break the non-visible two lower connectors and get to go to the dealer again to get new ones. Instead, to remove the grill once the top part is loose, PULL UP. These light gray lower connectors are inbedded in the Head Lamp assembly.

    The exterior trim piece is next. The two top black poppers need to be jimmied up 1/4 inch and then they pull out. The trim piece has 3 additional attachment points that are hidden. About the middle and a few inches to the outbound side, there are 2. They have an outbound facing notch, and the trim piece needs to be tapped towards the outward direction (side of the car) until it is free of them. This piece can flex a bit - its OK - but don't overdo. The final attachment is at the outermost corner that is a 1/4" male that plugs into a female fitting - This can be carefully pulled out and the trim piece is off.

    The next part is the Head Lamp Assembly. There are 3 screws which the owners Manual actually correctly identifies. These come out. And the assembly is basically loose, but attached by 4 cables going into the Assembly. The Marker lights and turn signal are easy - just untwist them. When you reconnect them - they have VERY different slot keys, so you won't have trouble remembering which is which. The tough one is the headlamp.
    The connector to the bulb has a rubberized cover. You can't see it while it is in place,but it has the word "PUSH" and two arrows on it pointing at the sides. You need to press in on the sides, a little higher than the middle, and disconnect the bulb connector. I had to gently use channel locks to do this.

    When the connector is removed, you can remove the rubber dam material surrounding the light. It may stick, but this entire thing will come off, making removal of the bulb a much simpler task.

    Once this is removed, you will see a wire latch holding the lamp in. Squeeze the wire latch (like pinching a clothes pin - kind of) at the top and it should release the bulb, which can now be simply removed from the enclosure.

    Replacement is the reverse and will be much easier now that you see all the parts that were previously hidden. So step one - go get 3 (or 4 if you replace turn signal) bulbs. The front marker and side marker are the same bulb type.

    Step two - remove the middle grill. The top connectors are visible and you can use a flat-bladed screw driver to compress the side or top and jiggle them so they pop loose.

    2003 trailblzer head light bulb replacement


    on a 2003 Chevy Trailblazer, you have to remove the grill to access the back of the head lights. It takes a good pull (don't be afraid to use a little force). Pop the hood and there 4 metal pieces that slide up and several plastic pieces that pop up. You will see the lips on the metal slides (about an inch in width) and you pull those up to loosen the grill. There are 2 of these slides (one on each far side, almost hidden) that are hard to get your hand into that you might need a screwdriver or something for leverage to slide them up. Then pop up the plastic pieces holding the headlamps in place and with a little force pull the grill off.
    Then you can access the back side of the headlamps to replace the bulbs.

    Brake light wiring reversed?


    hi go back to bulb and make sure the bulb you have fitted is for indicator? this has only one element and has only one centre contact for power also check the side pins on the body of bulb they should be opposite one another and on same level as you look on side however here in uk some of these bulbs are the same as above but for the locating pins as described above the pins are on same level but not opposite each other so if you try fitting should not be able to fit easily bayonet suggest you check the other side rear light bulbs one at atime to ensure correct type are what you have fitted stop and tail light bulbs have two elements one for brake and one for tail light these locating pins are oposite each other but not on same level offset to ensure the elements are on correct circuit when fitted hope you understand ?
