Headlight bulb on driver's side

The space behind the driver's side headlight is crowded with things. Is the procedure the same but you need to reach in between the body and the things without really being able to see the back of the bulb holder?

On my 01 L there is a large black "thing" in front of, but not actually attached to, the battery which slides up and out. This gives you a lot of room to get at the back of the light assembly. Get a good flash light in there and you will see that you can insert a long flat bladed screw driver down next to the thing and release it so it can slide up.

Drivers side headlight bulb replacement


  1. Open the hood to the 1999 Dodge Stratus.

  2. Locate the two headlight lens assembly retaining screws at the top of each side of the assembly.
  3. Remove each screw with the ratchet and a suitable socket.
  4. Place the screwdriver behind the lens assembly to assist in prying out the guide pins that secure and align the headlight assembly. Hold the lens assembly from the outside edge (marker light/directional light section) first and pry from behind with the screwdriver to unseat the guide pins. Pry from the inside end of the lens assembly to unseat the other guide pin.
  5. Pull the lens assembly out far enough to reach behind it and disconnect the headlight bulb wire harness from the back of the bulb. Or simply remove the bulb by twisting the harness and retaining ring counterclockwise and remove it as an assembly.
  6. Turn the marker light/directional light socket and wire counterclockwise to remove it from the headlight lens assembly.
  7. Remove the assembly from the front of the Stratus.

How do you change the headlight, driver's side on 06 trailblazer


The drivers side is the easy side. Reach your hand down about where the alternator is and then reach behind the headlight. There you'll find round rubber covers that can be pulled off by hand. Then you can twist out your bulb and replace.

How do you replace a low beam headlight bulb in a 2006 Chevy Trailblazer?


Drivers side- reach hand behind headlight and remove the rubber cover, then turn and remove bulb.

Passenger side- remove air cleaner top and move the air cleaner out of the way. Now you have access to the rubber cover to replace the bulb

How to replace headlight bulb inn 2003 tiberon


Low beams are easiest to reach. Open the hood, find the locking cap behind the light housing and turn it a half turn to remove. Unplug the bulb. Disengage the spring lock holding the bulb in place and remove the bulb (be sure you don't touch the glass).

The bulb base has three small flanges that seat right into corresponding slots in the bulb housing. Seat the new bulb using these flanges, lock the bulb into place with the spring lock and replace the locking cap.

The high beams are harder to get to. You might need to pull the battery on the driver's side. The windshield washer tank on the passenger side might also give you some problems. Once you have room to maneuver, the procedure for changing the bulbs is exactly the same as for the low beams (they even use the same bulbs: H7).

I'm having a hard time replacing the driver side headlight. Am I overthinking this?


Why are you trying to change the headlight? Is it broken?
If you are trying to change the bulb, because it is burned out, that is done from the rear of the housing. You have to exercise a bit of care getting the old bulb out and putting the new one in, but is it not difficult. If you are removing the right-side (from the driver's position) bulb, remove the battery (make sure you have your radio anti-theft code if you have one of those radios). Reach behind the headlight assembly, grasp the bulb holder retaining collar, turn it counterclockwise, then pull out the bulb/holder assembly. To remove the bulb from the holder, simply pull it straight out of the holder. Reverse procedure to lock the holder into place.
Removing the headlight housing is somewhat more involved. There are five bolts that hold it in place.

Remove driver side headlight assy to replace side marker light


There are two screws holding the headlight in. The screws are just above the headlight. After removing the screws you'll need to carefully pull straight out on the headlight assembly. There's a ball/socket type joint just behind the headlight. This joint needs separated for the assembly to come all the way ouit. Reaching and replacing the side light bulb requires a bit of arm twisting.
Reverse the order to re-install the headlight.

Headlight


There is a round 3 inch rubber cap directly behind the bulb assembly. Pull it off with your hand or pry it with a screw driver. With that cover off you can reach in and turn the bulb assembly counter clockwise a 1/4 turn then it pops rite out. There is a white clip on the bulb assembly that must be undone to remove the bulb. Re install in reverse order.
