How do i fit a new headlight bulb on 1995 jeep cherokee

Check this details, from the Repair Manual...

(1) Lift hood to access lamps.
(2) Reach into engine compartment and locate lock ring supporting the headlamp bulb assembly.
(3) Rotate the lock ring 1/8 turn counterclockwise (Fig. 5).
(4) Pull the bulb (9004) straight out from the housing. This is a halogen bulb, take care not to touch it with your fingers.
(5) Replace by seating the assembly in the lamp housing and turning the lock ring 1/8 turn clockwise to secure.

How to replace headlight buibs

I just replaced the headlight on my Mom's 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. If you have the manual for it, the instructions are in there. Open the hood, disconnect the negative battery cable, remove the two screws on the top of the headlight and you're supposed to be able to just pull on the top left and bottom right corners (for driver's side light) and it comes right out. It wasn't quite that simple for me. I had a heck of a time getting it out, but it WILL pull out. There are four clips behind it holding it in that you can't get to. That's what makes it hard to pull out. Once you get it out, just turn the light bulb on the back of it and pull it out of the headlamp assembly. Unplug the bad one and replace it with your new bulb. Plug the new bulb in, insert it into the headlamp assembly, turn it to lock it in place, put the headlamp assembly back in, push hard to re-engage those annoying clips, replace the two screws,re-connect your battery and... you did it!

Replace headlight bulb on driver's side

Pop the hood and you will notice that behind the light covering there is a connector that screws into the back of the light cover. Unscrew it and the bulb can be removed and replaced with a new one. Be sure to not touch the new bulb with your bare hands as this will cause the bulb to burn out quicker (its a chemical reaction of some kind). Hope this helps, let me know how it goes. Good luck!
