SOURCE: trying to replace a front headlight bulb on 2001 acura 3.2 TL

Are you talking about the retaining spring that holds the bulb in?

If so just pull the metal spring toward you and away from bulb. It may need a little jiggly but it will come out.

Do not test the headlight until you have the unit reassembled.

Dont touch the bulb glass with your bare hand either. It can cause the bulb to blow when you turn the light on.

SOURCE: How to replace 2001 Jeep Cherokee radiator

There is a removable radiator support brace at the top.There are 4 nuts that hold it on. One of them also holds the battery retainer on so you need to remove that as well.You also need to remove the coolant recovery bottle transfer hose from the brace. It is sometimes a good idea to remove the fans too as they are close to the rad and they can damage the rad if you touch the fans.If I forgot something just post me back..

Look for the end of the wire retainer clip. Unhook it and lift it up. Remember not to touch the bulb. But if you do, just clean it with a bit of alcohol.

btw - Here's a bit of info from a previous post of mine...
The low beams consist of three parts. The bulb, inverter/ballast and the ignitor. The bulbs usually start to loose their color long before they burn out. The inverters/ballasts either go out after a while or take a while to start up.

Before you spend money on a new bulb, try swapping it with the one on the other side. You'll need a security torx screwdriver to get the covers off of the back of the lights. Don't touch the glass bulbs. If you do, just clean them with a bit of alcohol.

If the problem stays on that side, try swapping the ignitors. They're mounted inside the black covers.

If the problem is still on that side you've got a bad inverter. They're mounted on the bottom of the headlight assembly. You'll need to remove the front bumper and remove the headlight assembly to get to it. (I recommend you take pictures as you remove things so can put them back together correctly.)

SOURCE: 2001 Chevy S-10 Headlight bulb replacement?

There are two tabs that hold the Headlight assembly in place. Pull one up, then holding the Headlight assembly, pull the other one up. Locate the light that is burned out. Remove the harness from the light, then twist the light to remove. Replace with new one, and reverse process. Be careful to not touch the glass of the new bulb. The oil from your fingers and hands will shorten the life of the bulb

How to replace the electric fan on 2000 jeep grand cherokee

You must remove the entire front bumper and you will want to remove the radiator as well. There really isn't enough room there.

Remove headlights.
To remove the front bumper, there are plastic clips around wheel well and under the front bumper. Then there are a couple of bolts under the hood and two bolts on the side (look from wheel well up). The whole thing comes off as one piece.

I was able to move (twist) the A/C condensor out of the way and not drain it.

Looking for the rubber gaskets around the headlights of my 2000 pontiac grand am, any idea where I can find them?

Is it the rubber trim that surrounds the headlight assembly? There is a flexible piece of black rubbery trim that reduces wind noise and helps to keep water and stuff out. Although this piece can be seperated from the headlight, I've never seen it sold seperately.

Call a Buick dealer and ask the parts department about that item.

If you need to buy an entire headlight, you can find them remarkably cheap, brand new, for under $40 each (including the bulbs!). Try looking on or Google Shopping for "2002 Grand Am headlight".

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

Radiator fan works but won't turn on replaced the

The 1999-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee fan relay is under the right front portion of your bumper support. The Bumper is easy to remove and is a 2 piece system. Take out your headlights (1 7mm bolt on each one), then take out all the 7mm bolts on the grill. Look up in thefront fender wells and there is 1 10mm bolt on each side with 3 or 4 plasctic rivits (cut the head off and push them through and replace with new plasctic rivits from your local parts store and make sure you have a plastic rivit setting tool). There is 3 plastic inserts under the bumper, pull the heads off, then pull the insert out. Your grill and bumper cover will then come off. The next part is to remove all of the Torx T27 bolts. Then disconnect the ambient air temperature sensor on the passenger side by the radiator. There is 2 clips (1 on each side) That hold the plastic in. Depresses them with a small pair of needle noise pliers. Push the air box clip through and the ambient air temperature sensor harness clip through. Once the plastic frame is off, release the electrical connectors for the head light harness, then the whole frame comes off. Once the frame comes off, on the passneger side is the fan relay. I like to use the after market Dorman fan relay because it comes with a new electrical pigtail. It is available from your local parts store. Dorman Part # 902-303. Good Luck

How to replace a headlight bulb on an 2001 Eclipse

Under the hood and directly behind the headlight you are trying to replace the bulb in, there is a rubber piece that is circular with 2 flat "handles" on it. Disconnect the wires from this, then wiggle the rubber piece out. Behind this is a clip. Release the clip and the bulb should come out. Replace the bulb, close the clip, make sure the rubber piece is back on tightly, and reconnect the wires.

Best part about it : No tools needed.

I just did this the other day with my 2001 eclipse GT.

Over heating

Well sometimes its the small things that count and on my grand am it took several mechanics to figure out the overheating problem. Under the bumper and between the grill/radiator are rubber flaps that hang down (to keep dirt from flying up from the road). Sometimes the plastic tabs don't hold them on or they rip from deteriating and hang down in front of your radiator. There was a small tiny piece of it hanging in front of my radiator causing it to overheat very badly. Took like 5 mechanics to notice this. No joke but i have replaced the seals and all but in the end it turned out being this problem. Very odd. You might wanna check into it. Look for anything that might be covering up the air circulation in front of the radiator and look very good because several people havnt noticed it. Wish i would have knew this before i started replacing gaskets and stuff.
