Most vehicles are equipped with a removable light harness, depending which side it is on, you should be able to gain access from under the hood, you might have to remove the air intake housing or remove the battery. the light bulb housing will normally twist out of the lens housing, about a 1/4 to a 1/3 turn. remove the bulb and replace, re assemble. good luck!

I actually have a Acura CL 3.0 and changed the headlights on it 2 weeks ago. The first thing you do after propping the hood is start loosening the plastic fasteners (they should pop off). Once you have them all undone you can remove the entire plastic cover piece.
From there you can look to where the back of the headlights would be and see wires in a clip going into the headlight. There should be a little notch that you need to get the wire removed from the bulb. Simply twist and the old bulb comes out and you just follow the same steps backwards to get the new bulb in.
NOTE: There is a gel you can place on the inside of the plastic adapter to help your bulb from overheating and frying any wires/bulbs.

Open the hood, reach behind and you will see a plastic ring on the head light socket wire harness. Turn this counter clockwise to remove, slide this back out of the way, the you will see the wire harness. There is a little clip on that you can pry up on with small flat-head screwdriver. You can also leave this on if you'd like. Just find the bulb and socket and turn and pull it out

Left blinker stays on when light are on then when


If it has a combination switch,headlights,wipers,turn signal all on one lever,then it is the problem.Unless the bulb in that signal light is bad,the filiment in the bulb can melt down and cause a back feed.Try changing that one bulb first.

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.

Thank you for sharing the information on the light bulb. You just saved me money from having to take my 2003 Trailblazer in to have the low beam bulb replaced. I did exactly what you said.
1 Open hood and lock.
2. Take filter cover off (4 screws and they stay with the filter).
3. 3 inch cover pulls off.
4. Twist light bulb 1/8 turn.
5. Unclip the wiring harness to light bulb assembly.
6. Test by turning light switch on.
7. Align assembly with light housing and turn 1/8 until it snaps in.
8. Put 3 inch cover back on.
9. Place filter cover back on and hand tight the 4 screws.
10. Close hood.
