There are two ways to change this light:


One method is to get at it through the wheel well. You'll have to remove the plastic guard inside the wheel well. Then reach up and pinch the spring in and pop it out. You may have to take the wheel off to get more room and to see up easier



Another method is to take a thin flat blade screwdriver, wrap the blade in electrical tape or masking tape and to gently slide in behind the side marker on the same side as the mirror. The side marker has a spring-like clip on one side and two tabs on the other. This method is faster, but has a change of scratching your paint or breaking the tabs on the side marker

IF a headlamp bulb ensure that you know what you are doing. Some bulbs by touching these by hand can cause failure soon after first use. Ensure you follow the OEM instructions if you want ot do this yourself

Change side light bulb


most operators manuals show how to change the major bulbs
no tall, just the ones for safety. did you read your oper. guide.
if its not there its in the FSM or at all data.com
both manuals are here. $4 day pass..... hint/?
https://suzukipitstopplus.com/Category/2-suzuki-vehicle-information.aspx

side bulbs, not exactly sure what you mean there.
my 04, page 5-51 in the op. guide says, remove the 2 lens screws
and and whole assy, pulls free and rear has socket and twist it and bam. its out.
but they move them to the Headlight assembly
so in that case, you pretend its a head light access.

i goggle for you and hit 1 was.
Your owner manual will have some instructions.

-Open the hood

-From the engine compartment, remove the black rubber boot
the boot , is the access port, read the manuals ? they cover this.
-loosen the little wire clip (or parts to access HL or side light)

-remove the bulb and unplug it

-Plug in the new bulb and install the new one in reverse. The new light bulb will only fit one way

How do I replace the front right turn signal on a 1999 VW Passat?


VW passat for model year 2001.5 – 2003, except HIDs). These were done on a 2001.5 Volkswagen Passat 1.8T. seem to be too wide for the wiring connector. Avoid touching the glass of the halogen bulb with bare hands. For easy access to the headlight’s bulbs, the cover shown above needs to be pulled out. As a reference, the arrows show what holds each other together. This will be helpful when placing this cover back. WARNING: Avoid touching the glass of the halogen bulb with bare hands. Use alcohol to clean off any contaminants. Read this book for VW service and repair manual complement. http://www.ebooksquad.com/2007/10/10/replacing-headlight-bulbs-for-the-vw-passat.html

Driver side headlight bulbs burned out on 2003 VW Golf


There is a light cover in front of the battery... take this off and then look for the metal clamps holding the light housing in.  (I say clamps, but they're more like glorified paper clips on either side of the fixture.)  Press in on each side, pushing the clamps towards each other and pull the fixture out.

Ford Focus Estate Diesel, 51 plate.


It turned out that the bulbs in the headlights had gone simultaneously. Luckily my son is knowledgeable about cars. He came over and figured out the problem. I had to purchase new bulbs, then my son had to practically dismantle the front of the car to change the bulbs. It was a complicated operation just to replace bulbs, and something I would not have been able to tackle myself. If it had not been for my son. I would have had to spend a fortune at a garage for a mechanic to replace the bulbs for me. What should have been a relatively simple task has become a mammoth operation. In years gone by it would have been a simple task that I could have performed myself. Why do manufacturers design cars so that it is so complicated just to replace the bulbs. There are so many things that have developed faults on this Ford Focus, I will never have another one.

MY VW LUPO IS HUNTING AND MAKING A CLICKING NOISE UNDER THE ENGINE IM HAVE THE ECT CHANGED ON SATURDAY I HAD JUST HAD A M.O.T IT FAIL CAUSE EXHAUST EMISSIONS WERE TOO HIGH I HAVE SOME TIMES A CHECK LIGHT...


The hunting and clicking is caused by a stuck vapor canister purge valve. The valve is on a vacume line. When it gets stuck open too much air enters the engine at idle or low rpm. This will cause the engine to hunt and stall as soon as any load is put on it if you do not rev it hard. The engine will over-run when coming to a stop and probably stall. It can come and go putting the chack light on. The quick fix is to just un-plug the solenoid. facing the enginebay it is located on the left hand side just infront of the suspention mount it is half balck half blue on every lupo i have seen. unpluging it will mean the car is driveable again but the check light does come on. It is 100% safe as long as nothing else happens that goes undetected because the light is already on. The part is about £70/80 from VW,  they may or may not know what you are talking about but i would not bother going to VW. The part is easy to find at a scrapyards if there are Lupos / Polos.  A number of other VAG cars share the part as well.  Any other problems come along to clublupo.co.uk

Fan or heater switches bulb gone


Apparently, this problem you are experiencing is quite common in VW MK4 Golfs, it's not the bulb but the lighting connection behind your switch. If you bang the right hand side sides your gan controls your fan lights should appear again. Sounds crazy but it's true. I know few people with VW Golf who have this problem.
