Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. You’ll have to unlock the octagon screws to release the headlight and push it forward. Now look to the left side with a torch and you’ll see a metal tab. Now take a flat head screw driver and press it down with it. The headlight will be released and the whole assembly comes out as it has an electrical connection on the back of the assembly.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Rylee

How do remove a headlight from the the assembly for a 1999 buick park avenue


Hello there,
For you to be able to take off the assembly of the headlight on your car, please follow the steps below:
Ensure that the headlight switch (on the driver side of the Regal's passenger cabin) is in the off position.
Release the hood latch and open the hood.
Approach the passenger-side headlamp assembly. (Although on your left, this is the right-side lens assembly when sitting inside the vehicle.)
Locate the two white retaining brackets on the top rear edge of the assembly.
Lift the tabs straight upward about an inch to an inch and a half.
Grab the assembly from the sides of the front edge (being careful of any broken lens pieces; although the lens is made of plastic, you can still get cut by jagged pieces).
Firmly pull the assembly outward, away from the front of the Regal. Wiggle the assembly slightly to unseat the headlamp assembly alignment guide pins from their anchors.
Pull the assembly out only far enough to access the wire harness connections of the low-beam headlight, the high-beam headlight and the integrated parking/directional light.
Twist the retaining collar of the low-beam lamp (the outside lamp, toward the fender) a quarter-turn counterclockwise to remove the light from the headlamp assembly while it is still attached to the wire harness. Be careful not to contact the halogen bulbs with your bare hands, or you can damage the bulbs.
Twist the retaining collar of the high-beam headlight (the inner headlight, closer to the grill) in the same manner as you did the low-beam lamp to remove the high-beam bulb and harness from the headlamp assembly.
Twist the socket of the last remaining integrated parking/directional bulb and wire harness assembly a quarter-turn counterclockwise to remove it from the headlight assembly.
Discard the assembly and replace it with the new headlamp assembly by following the steps above in reverse order. Make sure to align the tabs of the retaining collar and parking/directional lamp socket with the mating notches on the new headlamp assembly before turning them all clockwise a quarter-turn to lock them in place.

How do you change the head light on a 97 honda odyssey?


you want to change the headlight bulb, or the whole headlight assembly? The bulb is easy. There is a round rubber boot, about 3 inches in diameter, on the backside of the headlight assembly under the hood. Behind the rubber boot is the headlamp , secured by a wire clip that holds it secure in place. You pop that wire clip open. Its sort of triangle shaped and clips on to the headlight Assembly. The clip doesn't normally come , just unclip it, and the headlamp will then pull out. Unplug it from the plug by pushing on the release tab. Take the lamp to the auto parts store and buy a replacement. Install in reverse procedure, but make sure not to touch the glass on the bulb. These bulbs get very hot and even slight oil from your finger tips can cause the glass on the bulb to burst. The one on the passenger side is harder to get to because of the battery location. The easiest way to change bulbs is usually to ask the person at the auto parts store to do it for you. Many times Auto Zone and Advance Auto stores will put them in for you.

The headlight assembly is a different story. That is the whole plastic headlight and side marker light that must come out. There are 2 ) 6mm bolts ( 10 mm head) located at the top of the headlamp , sticking in the radiator core support. That's the big piece of metal that goes from inner fender to inner fender which the radiator attaches too. Then there are 2 more bolts on the bottom of the headlamp assembly that bolt to tabs on either side. For the side marker light there are 2 screws in the backside of them against the fender, and a bolt on the bottom. You have to pull the plastic cover inside the wheel well. Might be easiest to pull the tire to get more room. There might be another bolt or screw in there, not sure as its been a while since Ive replaced them. If you replace a headlight assembly, they will cost you around $100 used at a salvage yard or e bay. The side marker lights you can get new for under $40 all over the internet. Hope this helps some
