how to put a head light in - 550c128.gif
Release the locking ring, then withdraw the halogen bulb from the headlamp assembly


Removal & Installation

This procedure only applies to replaceable halogen headlight bulbs (such as nos. 9004 and 9005); it does not pertain to sealed beam units.

  1. Open the vehicle hood and secure it in an upright position.
  2. Unfasten the locking ring which secures the bulb and socket assembly, then withdraw the assembly rearward.
  3. If necessary, gently pry the socket's retaining clip over the projection on the bulb (use care not to break the clip.) Separate the bulb from its socket.
To install:
  1. Before installing a light bulb into the socket, ensure that all electrical contact surfaces are free of corrosion and dirt.
  2. Line up the replacement headlight bulb with the socket. Firmly push the bulb into the socket until the bulb is seated. If so equipped, make sure the spring clip latches over the bulb's projection.

WARNING Do not touch the glass bulb with your fingers. Oil from your fingers can severely shorten the life of the bulb. If necessary, wipe off any dirt or oil from the bulb with rubbing alcohol before completing installation.


  1. To ensure that the replacement bulb functions properly, activate the applicable switch to illuminate the bulb which was just replaced. (If this is a combination low and high beam bulb, be sure to check both intensities.) If the replacement light bulb does not illuminate, either it too is faulty or there is a problem in the bulb circuit or switch. Correct if necessary.
  2. Position the headlight bulb assembly and secure it with the locking ring.
  3. Close the vehicle hood.

I need to replace the headlight lenses on an 06 PT Cruiser. I have the lenses, but no instructions on how to do it! Any ideas?


you need to take the light out of car. take the rubber covers off and bulbs out and motor for the lights if you have them on your light. no in the kitchen preheat your oven gas mark 6-7 electric 500f or as high as it will go. leave one shelf in the oven. place light in oven for 10 min. keep checking on it wile it is in. take out of oven and have these tools ready. 2 flat head screw drivers the bigger the head the better. even a scraper for taking wall paper off. now on the light when it is out were the lens and the head light case fits together put the screw driver in and prize out the lens with both screw drivers of whatever you are using to get into the gap. if pas side prize out right side of light first. left side for drivers side. if cools wile you are doing this. put back in the oven. keep doing this till it is off. now putting back on the new lens. the old glue on the head light make sure it still covers the hole of the light frame for the lens. if not heat some off the old lens and fill in the gaps. put the head light in the oven again and keep an eye on it by checking the glue seal is tacky to the touch. pull out when is and pull out of the oven and push the new lens on. keep heating it up can use a hair dryer on high heat setting for this. and keep heating and pushing the lens on till it all covers the seam like when you took the old one off. when done leave to cool down and give the light a good clean then put every thing back on light and back onto the car. all done. hope this helps this is how you do it to all lights that are plastic or glass type. if glass type it heats up quicker so be aware of that. if light is smashed best not to put in oven use a hair dryer as the oven can make the edges of the broken lens melt and could damage the reflector in the light. will take long to get of with hair dryer.

I have a the dim head light out. what do I have to do to put a new light in? what needs to be taken apart, and can I do it myself?


If the head light is just dim, open the fuse box and you'll find one of the fuses for the head lights has blown. Replace that and it'll work correctly.

My repair light turned on and my day lights keep beeping


Well you know the problem, go for it, replace the head light.
In the future, this is how it works.
Pull the E brake up before you start the car.
When you put it down the geen day time light will flash three times then the repair light will come on.
That means you have a burned out head light.

I need to change my passenger side headlight bulb on my 2002 beetle. Can anyone please send me a diagram on how to do this.


WHAT TO DO IS OPEN THE HOOD OF YOUR BEETLE AND WILL BEABLE TO SEE THE HEAD LIGHT. THERE IS A LEAVER THAT PUSHES DOWN TO EJECT THE HEAD LIGHT OUT OF THE FENDER. YES IT COMES ALL THE OUT OF THE CAR. YOU MAY NEED TO TAKE A SCREW DRIVER TO PUSH THE LOCK DEVICE DOWN TO PUSH LEAVER DOWN.ONCE YOU GET THE HEAD LIGHT OUT TAKE THE BACK OFF OF IT AND REPLACE THE BULBS. WHEN YOU PUT THE HEAD LIGHT BACK IN THERE ARE 3 GUIDES TO PUT THE HEAD BACK IN TO LOCK IT BACK IN PLACE. ONCE YOU HAVE IT IN THE GUIDES US THE LEAVER TO PULL THE HEAD LIGHT BACK INTO THE FENDER.
