On a 1997 Buick riviera the light bulbs simply plug in from the back side of the lens. You will have to twist the bulb pod from the socket. Change the bulb,wipe it with a clean cloth and twist it back in.

How to change a dim light bulb on a 1997 ford expedition passenger side

If this is a head light bulb and it's dim this tells me you probably do not need to replace the bulb. It sounds like a poor connection or your ground is not grounding properly.To find out if its the ground take a piece of wire and fasten to your engine and touch it on the head light area. If the light goes bright then you know you have a bad ground.

Headlight is out on passenger side of 1998 buick riviera. It will sometimes blink when I hit it. The whole assembly seems loose. The side light cornering lamp works. The wiring all looks secure.

Yep sounds like you need a new headlight bulb The flashing is the tungsten fillament inside of the bulb breifly contacting the broken halves together when hitting it..Replace the bulb and all should be good. Note some times the light may stay on ,, this is because the broken halves arc welt themselves and break again upon cooling after you turn lights off ...good luck

'97 riviera left blinker comes on but does not blink

The left blinker comes on, but does not blink? Either the front or rear bulb on that side is burned out (turn signal filament only). U can swap bulbs from good side to determine which is the bad bulb, or by carefully checking the bulb filament for damage. Let me know if u need more info.
