How to change headlight assembly


You can't get at them from the engine bay. You've got to remove the plastic grill on the front of the car, to get at other screws, and take a few screws out that hold the entire headlight assembly in. Do not unscrew any of the screws above or below the lights. These are for adjusting the angle of the headlights. You'll have to readjust them if you do. Not a big deal, just unnecessary if you don't touch them.

There should be 2 screws on either side of the headlight assembly. Spray some penetrating fluid on them. I broke one with very little pressure because I didn't. Sheared the head right off the shaft.

Once you get the headlight assembly out the bulbs come out with a quarter turn of the socket. Remember not to touch the new bulb with your fingers. Oil will create hot spots and it could crack the bulb. If you do then clean it with a high percentage alcohol before putting it in.

Changing the headlight bulb in 2003 dodge grand caravan


1) open the hood.
2) Carefully remove the three screws holding the headlight assembly in place.
3) Carefully slide the headlight assembly out. At this point you can replace the headlight bulb, turn signal bulb, or the entire headlight assembly. To replace the headlight bulb turn the collar holding the bulb in counter clockwise. Pull the bulb out of the headlight assembly. Replace the bulb. Insert the bulb into the headlight assembly insert the collar and turn clockwise until it locks. (Do not touchglass with your fingers or it will cause the bulbs to catastrophically fail - clean with alcohol pad if you touch the glass)
4) Carefully insert the headlight assembly back into place.
5) Replace the three screws removed in step 2 being careful not to over tighten.

Replacing front headlight bulb . Instructions for


With the hood open, you will see a long flat flexible plastic cover running across the front, above the headlights. It is riveted in with plastic rivets. Hold the outer part of the rivet, and pull up the center part. Then remove the whole rivet. Remove the plastic cover. (When you put it back on, insert the outer part in the hole, then press the center part down into each rivet.)
You will see a sidelamp and headlight assembly. Look down between the sidelamp and headlight, there should be a black plastic clip or latch that holds the side lamp to the headlight. (The clip is down a hole, in the bracket holding the headlight to the body). You will probably need a long screw drive to get down in the hole to release the clip. And maybe a flash light to see down the hole. Put just enough pressure to release the latch, it is plastic, and if you press to hard it could break. Once released the side lamp will pop forward a bit. The sidelamp section can be pulled forward. a bit. However, there is a long plastic part on the Sidelamp Section that slides into a metal hole in the Fender. It will break if you try to pry the sidelamp section out sideways.
Next you will see two top-mounted bolts holding the Headlight Assembly in place which can easily be accessed and removed. Removing the bolts will loosen the entire headlight assembly.
Some instruction say you can remove the headlight and side assembly as a unit. Do not do this! If you try to remove the headlight assembly without detaching the sidelamp you could break either of the lights or the connection assembly.
The Bulb Assembly twists out of the back of the Headlight Assembly, and the bulb can then be replaced. Be careful not to touch the bulb with your hands or with any grease.
Many of the parts are plastic and can break, so do this carefully and patiently. It sounds a little complicated, but once you learn how, the whole job only takes about 20 minutes.

Hope helped. (remember rated this).

How do you get in to change the headlight bulb on the 2004 Dodge Dakota


Remove the single torx screw holding the parking lamp assembly to the headlamp assembly. Remove the parking lamp bulb and sockets from the main assembly and set aside. Remove the three bolts holding the headlamp assembly. Pull the headlamp assembly forward off of the alignment pin and disconnect the harness from the back of the bulbs. Turn the bulb holder and pull the bulb out. Replace in reverse. Total replacement should take 15 minutes. Gregg

Thanks for the tips Gregg! Indeed, don't work anywhere but in front of the grill. Notes from my adventure:
You'll need a t-10 torx skinny screwdriver, and a 10mm socket wrench/driver.
Find the little torx screw near the bottom side of the headlight nearest the wheel and remove it. Tug and wiggle on the turn signal unit and it'll come loose. You'll find three 10mm bolts that hold the headlight unit in. More tug and wiggle and the unit falls free. After bulb replacement (don't touch the glass or finger oils can cause it break under high heat) replace the headlight unit. You'll see little plastic guides that the signal unit slides into- replace the unit and the tiny screw that holds it all in place. Replace the other bulb too, the second one takes a tenth of the time :)

2006 toyota rav 4 fog light bulb replacement


fIRST YOU SEE A RUBBER GASKET SURROUNDING THE HEADLIGHT PLUG IN THE BACK OF THE HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY. pULL OFF THE GASKET AND LET IT HANG ON THE SURROUN DING HEADLIGHT WIRES. tHEN PULL OFF THE HEADLIGHT WIRE HARNESS BY GRABBING THE SOCKET (NOT THE WIRES). AROUND THE BULB IS A THIN SILVER HOLDING SPRING THAT LOOSENS BY SQUEEZING THE ENDS TOGETHER AND ROTATING IT. iT WILL LOOSEN AROUND THE HEADLIGHT. WHEN THIS HAPPENS THE HEADLIGHT WILL "FLOP" AROUND AND PULL IT OUT, REMEMBERING TO SEE HOW THE THREE CONNECTORS ARE LOCATED (I.E - IS ONE CONNECTOR AT 12 O CLOCK POSITION AND THE OTHER TWO ARE AT 9 AND 3 OR ARE THEY AT 3,6 AND 9, ETC.). rE-ASSEMBLY IS THE OPPOSITIE. tHE TRICK IS TO GET THE THIN SPRING WIRE BACK IN PLACE. YOU HAVE TO SQUEEZE THE SPRING AND RE-POSITION IT SO IT KEEPS THE BULB SECURLY IN PLACE

Having just changed the bulb, I would advise taking the whole headlight assembly out first. It is near impossible to feel or imagine how to change the bulb without seeing it. First, use a phillips screwdriver to take the single screw holding the strip off just below the headlight assembly. By doing so, you will now see the other two bottom bolts holding the headlight in. Take all four bolts out then disconnect the bulb from behind. Then proceed as above.

Head lamp bulb change


I've done this once, so i'll do my best to help you here. You'll need some sort of light you can shine to do this. First you need to unplug the headlight plug from the assembly. Next there will be a rubbery boot you also need to take off, this just pulls right off. This next part is where it gets sticky. There is a phillips screw that holds down a flexible pin/clamp/whatever you want to call it down against the back of the bulb. Unscrew the screw enough to remove the pin, you won't need to completely remove the screw though to remove the pin. Once you have the pin removed, you can then get at the bulb. The bulb itself has 3 points, like a down-ward arrow. Line up the 2 points that are closer together with the top and just slide the bulb in WITHOUT TOUCHING THE GLASS of the bulb. If you touch the glass, say goodbye to the bulb's life. To put it back together, get the bulb in, the pin screwed down and reverse the rest of the process. Hope this helps.

Headlamp


There are 2 screws one the frame above the headlight after you open the engine hood. One screw has a long shaft, both need to be removed and will release the headlight housing. Next you need to pull the headlight assembly out which might mean you have to push down on the plastic surrounding the assembly. Once the assembly is out all you need to do is pull up on the clip that holds the wiring and pull it off. There is a plastic ring around the lightbulb that you need to screw off and then you'll be able to pull out the bulb. Make sure you have a new HB5/9007 type replacement bulb, and do not touch the glass on the bulb with your fingers, if you do take a soft cloth and wipe the glass to remove any oils. After you place the new bulb in the assembly, put everything back in reverse of how you removed it and you'll be finished.
