1995 Maxima Headlight Lens

I want to remove the lense to clean the inside. There are two spring clips on the top that look like they are fastening it in. Can they be removed to pull the lens off?

How to replace bulb in front bumper turn signal housing 1995 jag xj6

  • Identify the blown bulb. Note that if a headlight bulb has blown, the dip beam is on the outside and the high beam is on the inside. Turn off the ignition switch and light switches.

  • Open the hood and replace any blown headlight bulbs. Press the plastic spring clips and remove the bulb holder from the assembly. Pull the bulb out of the bulb holder and replace it with a new bulb. It only fits one way. Be sure not to touch the bulb's glass. Replace any parking lights at the same time, they are in the headlamp unit too.

  • Remove the front turn signal light unit in the bumper to change the turn signal bulb. Push gently on the inside edge and insert a blade between the bumper and the lens at the outside edge. Compress the spring and remove the lens. Fit a new lamp by inserting it into the plug. The side marker light is changed using a similar process.

  • Open the trunk to replace the rear fog light, stop light, tail light, reversing light and turn signal light. Remove the rear light cover and turn the bulb holder fastener 90 degrees counter clockwise. Remove the expired bulb, fit a new one and replace the parts, turning the bulb holder clockwise.

  • Thanks..

    The headlight lens on the front right is very dull. How can I remove the lense and clean inside?

    I've never seen the problem on the inside of the lens, only on the outside. Auto parts stores sell a kit to clean the lens.

    How to remove headlamp assambly in a volvo s60 2002


    This should be fairly simple,one may have to remove the grille.

    • Remove trimmings on the front bumper cover to allow access to the bolt for removal of the front bumper. The trimming can be removed simply by prying the trimming from the center of the bumper cover using a Philips screw driver.
    • After removing the 2 bolts on the bumper cover, you may open the hood and remove the plastic fasteners on the top of the bumper.
    • To remove the plastic fastener, simply depress the center until click. Do not press too far or the fastener will be damaged.
    • Turn the Torx screw in the wheel well counter clockwise to loosen the catch plate on the bumper. Lift the bumper cover over the catch plate and push the bumper cover forward. This completes the removal of the front bumper cover.
    • To remove the headlight assembly, you will need to loosen the bolt on the retainer near the wheel well. You will then remove the 4 bolts that hold the headlight assembly.
    • There is one bolt on the side of the headlight assembly. Two bolts on top and one at the corner of the lens. They all have the same size bolt.
    • In order to remove the headlight assembly, after removing the bolts, the headlight harness needs to be removed.
    • The next step is to remove the trimming on the lens and removing the clips that hold the lens in place. There are 4 clips. One clips on each side.
    • Once the clips are removed, the lens can be pry open with screw driver. You may want to heat the edge to soften the glue or use an utility knife to scrape the edge. Be extra careful, as the glass can be very sharp if shattered. Please also wear protective gear such as safety goggle and gloves. After this, just reverse the steps to put the headlight back together.
    Take care and good luck

    How do I change the bulb in the driver's headlight of my 95 Toyota 4Runner?

    You must remove the four screws that hold in the side marker lenses (two per side/lens) pull the lens forward & out to the side. Next remove the grille, to do this you need to push in both top & bottom of the plastic clips that hold it in place. These clips usually break since they are old (1995) & made of plastic. Each clip costs $1.99 from the Toyota dealership (for .02 cents worth of plastic!) you will probably need a few even though they are way overpriced. Then once the grille is removed you can remove the four bolts that hold the lens assembly in place, once it is removed you unplug the bulb & then unscrew the plastic retaining ring that holds the bulb in place & remove the bulb from the housing. Installation is the reverse of removal - BEWARE; do not touch the glass of the bulb, oil from your skin will cause hot spots on the glass & lead to premature failure of the bulb. If you do happen to touch it, clean the bulb with alcohol prior to assembly.

    Method #2; remove the air box on the drivers side (behind the headlight & you can remove the bulb from the back. On the passenger side, remove the battery & the washer fluid reservoir & you can remove it from the back also. Either method is time consuming & an unusually bad hassle for something as routine as changing a headlight.

    I don't know how to take off the head light lens cover on my nissan maxiuma

    Probably not a lens cover at all. It's just a 1 piece plastic headlight. It you are wanting to replace a bulb , they go in from the back . Open the hood and you should be able to see where the wires to the bulb go in the back of the headlight.

    2002 Suzuki XL-7 headlight removal

    No other way to get the headlight housing out other than to remove the grille not the fender. Remove the clips that secure the top of the radiator grille. There are 5 screws on the bottom portion of the grille that have to be removed before you can remove the grille. There are 3 screws and something called a guide pin on the headlight housing. Detach the electrical connector from the bracket by squeezing the lock tip with a pair of pliers. Remove the bulbs and have fun cleaning the headlight lens.

    E300D Headlight Lens installation

    First you have to remove the turn signal lamp. There is a plastic release tang that you push one way and pull the turn signal out. Next you have to remove the filler panel below the headlight assy to gain access to the bottom bolt. 2 screws hold the filler in place. There is also a black plastic filler panel that is pinned to the headlight assy remove it. There are 3 or 4  bolts that hold the headlamp assy in place 2 on top 1 on bottom actually it might be 2 on the bottom. (old age memory loss LOL) remove the bolts and remove the headlamp assy. The lens is held in by plastic clips just pry up gently on the locking clips and remove the lens. I hope this helps. It fairly easy and you should be able to DIY. Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
