The cover doesn't come off - there is a lock ring accessed from under the hood holding the bulb (a 9004) into place, Open the hood and locate the wires going into the headlight assemblies and the lock ring should be visible. It will resemble a large jar lid. Squeeze the locking clip on the connector and separate the wiring harness from the bulb. Turn the lock ring to the left to remove it. Installation is the reverse. Make sure the wiring harness is secured into position and locked. It is recommended you change the headlights in pairs - then keep the old working one as a spare.

LIGHTS, FRONT HEADLIGHT, HOW DO YA REPLACE WHEN BURNED OUT?


You have to take the engine cover off to expose the headlight cover. Then locate the black headlight cover located inside under hood at rear of headlight. Gently depress clip and pop open cover. The rear of the bulb housing will pop out when you turn and pull. Replace bulb and reverse actions to reinstall. Hope this helps.

How to change headlight on 2000 galant


  • 1
    Place the Mitsubishi on a flat service in park. Set the parking brake before continuing.

  • 2Open the Galant's hood and locate the headlight cover -- roughly 3-inch wide circular piece of plastic -- behind the headlight bulb intended for replacement. Turn this cover clockwise to unlock it and pull it from the headlight assembly, exposing the headlight socket below it.


    3

    Hold the rear of the headlight socket and turn it counterclockwise to unlock it. Pull the headlight socket and bulb from the headlight assembly.


    4

    Grab the bulb and pull it from the socket with a slight wiggling motion.


    5

    Pick up the new 9003 headlight bulb using a clean, lint-free cloth and line up its prong with the slots in the socket. Never tough the bulb with your bare hands, as the oils left by your hands can cause the bulb to burn out prematurely.


    6

    Slide the socket and new bulb into the headlight assembly and turn the socket clockwise to lock it into place.


    7

    Place the plastic cover behind the bulb and turn it counterclockwise to lock it into place.


    8

    Repeat Steps 1 through 7 for the headlight bulb on the other side of the Galant, if needed.


    9Close the Galant's hood.

    How to remove front headlight assembly


    Hi,

    1 Open the RAV4's hood. Locate the back of the headlight assembly, just behind the headlight. You should see a ring-shaped plastic cover.

  • 2 Turn the locking plastic ring clockwise about 1/2 inch and it should pop off.
  • 3 Remove the rubber grommet covering back of the headlight. Simply pull it out of the headlight assembly.
  • 4 Depress the spring latch holding the bulb in place behind the headlight. This is a wire latch that looks somewhat like a bent paper clip. Press it down and move it to the side, away from the light bulb. It should come free and flip open, freeing the bulb.
  • 5 Disconnect the light bulb from the plug. Replace it with the new light bulb, and replace the latch and rubber grommet. Replace the plastic ring cover and turn your headlights on to ensure proper installation.

  • Thanks

    How do you replace the headlight on a 2002 Daewoo Lanos


    Hi there, together with providing you the solution to the problem, I also took the liberty of going one step further in giving you steps on how to remove the headlight bulb.

    • Find the hood release handle and activate it, the hood should pop open.
    • Once the hood is popped open locate the hood secondary or safety latch and release it. Then finish opening the hood.
    • Locate and remove mounting clips for any plastic shields that cover the headlight lens mounting screws or clips.
    • Some headlight bulbs can be replaced by simply grasping the bulb socket behind the headlight lens and turn it counter clockwise to remove it. This will expose the headlight bulb.
    • If the headlight bulb socket is not accessible the headlight lens may need to be remove or obstructions behind the bulb removed to gain access to the headlight bulb socket.
    • To remove the headlight lens remove all mounting screws and clips that hold the headlight lens in place.
    • After the headlight housing has been removed from it's mounts, release the headlight bulb from the headlight lens housing (turn counter clockwise) the bulb will then come out of the headlight assembly. Once removed, visually verify that the replacement bulb is exactly the same as the failed bulb before to ensure a proper repair.
    • Clean the headlight lens free from all debris to help maintain the seal from the bulb to the lens. This will keep moisture out of the lens.
    • Install the new headlight bulb by turning the retainer ring or bulb clockwise.
    • Re-install the headlight lens housing and reinstall electrical connector.
    • Re-install plastic covers.
    After the job is complete turn the ignition key to the "on" position and activate the headlight switch. Observe the newly replaced headlight bulb to ensure proper operation.

    Glad to be of help!!!

    Cant get the bulb out of the headlight


  • Locate the headlight socket cover inside the engine compartment. The cover is on the back of the headlight assembly; it is round and made of plastic or rubber.
  • 2 Remove the headlight socket cover by pulling it off or twisting it to the left and then pulling it off. You can see the headlight socket once the cover is removed.
  • 3 Grip the headlight socket, turn it to the left and pull it out of the assembly. The light bulb is connected to the socket.
  • 4 Pull the bulb straight out of the socket and discard it in a waste receptacle.
  • 5 Plug the replacement bulb into the socket, taking care not to touch the glass. The oils on your skin can shorten the life of the bulb if you touch the glass. Wear gloves to prevent touching the glass.
  • 6 Place the socket back into the light assembly and turn it to the right to lock it in place.
  • 7 Slide the headlight socket cover over the socket and press on it to secure it, or turn it to the right, depending on how you have removed it in Step 2.
  • 8 Repeat Steps 2 through 7 to replace the other headlight bulb.


  • please give good rateing if this helps thank you

    Passenger side headlight assembly removal, is there more than 2 bolts, if so where


    You can replace the headlights on your Crossfire easily by yourself. headlight image by Carbonbrain from Fotolia.com

    When a headlight burns out on your Chrysler Crossfire, you do not need to rush to the repair shop to have it replaced. You can access the headlights in your Crossfire from within the engine compartment, allowing you to change the headlight yourself. The Crossfire uses an H7U headlight bulb, which you can find at auto parts retail stores or at a Chrysler dealership.
    Difficulty: Easy

    1. 1 Open the hood of your Crossfire to gain access to the headlight assemblies. Press down on the tab on top of the light assembly cover. Remove the cover and set it aside.
    2. 2 Pull the electrical connection free of the bulb socket. Press the spring clamps securing the bulb into the light assembly. Pull the bulb straight out of position.
    3. 3 Insert the new bulb in the same position. Ensure that the spring clamps secure the bulb. Press the electrical connection into place.
    4. 4 Replace the light assembly cover and press it into position until it clicks, securing it in place. Repeat the same process on the opposite headlight if required. Close the hood and test the headlight operation.
