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.

I have a 2008 Ford Fusion and the passenger side head lamp will not come on. The fog lights and driver side head lamp works but the passenger side will not work on bright or on dim, what could this be?


Hi. Since the headlight on the driver side is working then we dont have any problem with the fuse or relay. Check the wiring and the socket of the passenger headlight if it is intact to the bulb. If it is intact, then this could be a headlight problem. Time to replace the passenger headlight.

How to change the low beam bulb on driver and passenger sides


the low beam bulb is one with the high beam ,so you need to replace the headlight bulbs, its hard to believe they both went at the same time,i would buy one and replace it if lights still don't work than you might have other issues like maybe a blown fuse.

Need to replace a headlight assembly for a 2006 Subaru Outback.


No, you just remove the radiator grill and the side marker light and the headlight housing bolts and it comes out. Not a real hard job and is Real straight forward. Good luck and have a good day.

Headlight Issue


No, you just might have to take out the battery. I was able to do it without taking the battery out, but only because I was being stubborn. There is one thing I definitely have to say is that you should change both headlights at the same time. My driver side headlight was the first one to go and I didn't listen and just changed that one, days later my passenger side one went out!

Volvo S40 Low beam headlight


Sounds like a wire to me. It's definitely not fuses (unless the fuses have been split for left and right hand side which I have never come across, but we are talking about volvo lol) so I'd say most likely there'd be a break somewhere in the harness. The driver's side probably blew as all the power gets sent to one side when one bulb isn't working - so it's working twice as hard usually - making it more susceptable to blowing.

Headlight Bulb replacement


if you're dealing with a v6 ram air you first have to take off the black plastic clips that hold down the hard plastic housing in order to access the headlight. once thats removed you have to TWO clamps u have to pull up on EACH headlight in order to take off the headlight, from there u should be able to access your headlight and bulb.

Headlights on passenger side not working


all you need is to replace your headlightn relay. in time they get worn out and most of the common one on j3o`s is the driver side. relay is located in the driver side fender corner of firewall next to the cruise conrol bolted by one bolt.
