There is a little aluminum stick in the assembly holding it in. On the top of the headlight twist the stick and remove it. It will look like a tent stake. Remove this stick and then the head light assembly will almost fall out.

How do I change the entire headlight assembly on a 2008 Mazda CX 9.


There are a few installation bolts that are accessible from the top and side but you will need to remove the entire front bumper to access two of the lower ones. Here are some pics from the factory manual. First shows location of the headlight bolts and fasteners. Others show how to remove the bumper. 10mm socket should handle all the bolts you need to remove. Disconnect the battery prior to starting and headlights off. HID headlight voltage is around 25,000 volts so you want to ensure no power to the system before performing repairs.

How to take passenger headlamp out of 328i bmw 2008 so it can be replaced?


2008 328i Passenger headlight assembly removal.

The headlight assembly is held in by 4 "star" bolts (size 25); 2 visible on the top of the assembly, 2 not visible or easily accessible.

The 2 bolts not so visible require that the front half of the wheel well come off and the front bumper or "nose" of the car.... The bumper is what needs to come off, but there are 2 bumper bolts hidden by the wheel well.

The wheel well is held in by 7mm bolts, 2 of which are actually bolted to the bumper on the bottom.

The front bumper is held on with 7mm bolts on the bottom edge, and star bolts, size 25, accessible on the top edge. (Hood open). Here were my steps.

1. Jack up the car on the side you are replacing, remove wheel.
2. Using 7mm socket, remove all the bolts to peel off the front half of the wheel well. With the wheel well out, you can see the 2 other star bolts holding the headlight assembly, but you can only remove one of them... even if you were good enough to get both removed, the headlight assemble will not push out through the bumper.... Keep going with bumper removal.
3. Remove 2, 7mm bolts of the front bumper that are now visible up near the outer edge of the headlight assembly.
4. At this point I removed the bumper's top edge start bolts and bottom edge 7mm bolts about 3/4 of the way across the bumper...
5. The bumper is very flexible and you can now pull it back , reach in, and get that last difficult star bolt on the headlight assembly....
6. Don't forget the one electrical connector....
7. I also recommend testing the new assembly by plugging it in before removing anything

Head light change out How intrusive is the job?


Hello gary..... This is not a bad job. Here are the steps.

  1. Engage the parking break and remove the keys from the ignition before attempting any repairs. Make sure you've turned the headlight switch to the off position.

  2. Open the hood by first pulling the interior hood release lever located below the steering wheel under the instrument panel. Then, walk around to the front of the pickup and push up on the safety catch located in the opening beneath the center of the grill. Lift the hood and secure it.

  3. Unscrew the expanding fastener from the headlight welt, if equipped. Use a screwdriver to remove the three screws that hold it in place. However, not all Dodge Rams of this generation have this feature.

  4. Remove the first two bolts from the headlight assembly using a socket wrench. These two bolts will be on the inside near the grille.

  5. Remove the third bolt located on the outside bottom of the headlight assembly near the fender. You may find it easier to access this bolt from the fender well where you'll find an access hole after removing the fender plug. Use a socket wrench with a ratchet extender for easier removal.

  6. Pull the headlight assembly away from the front of the pickup, giving special force to the fender side. Be careful not to scratch the paint or jostle the assembly too much. You don't want to have to readjust your headlight aim when you're done.

  7. Disconnect the electrical connector by giving it a quarter-turn and pulling it straight out from the base of the bulb housing. This should remove it completely from the housing, so you can access the bulb.

  8. Twist the collar on the headlight bulb a quarter-turn to remove it from the bulb base.

  9. Install the new bulb into the bulb assembly, reconnect the electrical connector and place it back into the headlight housing. Replace the headlight assembly in reverse order of removal. Make sure all bolts are secure before closing the hood.

  10. Turn on your Dodge Ram and make sure the headlights are working.

Change headlight on 2008 Chevy Malibu


Hi there,

Well first you can please follow the below steps -
1. Make sure the ignition key is in the off position and the headlight switch is off. Release the hood latch.
2. Open the hood and locate the top of the headlight assembly where you intend to change the headlight. If a plastic shroud is present, locate the center bolt and remove it with a ratchet and a socket. Lift the shroud out of the way to access the headlight assembly retaining brackets. Some later models may feature a snap-release shroud requiring no tools to remove.
3. Locate the brackets on the top rear of each side of the headlight assembly. Lift them all the way up to align the hole on the bottom of each bracket to the retaining tabs on the assembly.
4. Pull the assembly forward away from the Malibu, but be careful not to scratch the bumper. There are three guide pins that require unseating. The guide pins are what aim the headlights and it may take some wiggling to get the pins from their seats.
5. Support the assembly with one hand and then reach behind the unit with the other. The low beam bulb is on the outside, the high beam bulb is on the inside. You can also replace the parking light if desired. Locate the wire harness connection. Un-clip the wire harness from the back of the bulb socket. Remove the bulb by turning it counterclockwise 1/3 of a turn to align the release tabs of the ring and the assembly. Wiggle the bulb out of the assembly.
6. Place the latex gloves on your hands before opening the package of the replacement bulb. Oil in our skin can damage the glass bulbs of halogen headlights.
7. Carefully insert the new bulb into the ring and then align the tabs of the ring to the tabs of the headlight assembly. Push inward and then twist clockwise 1/3 of a turn to lock the bulb in place. Reattach the wire harness. Rest the headlight assembly inside its cavity and test the operation of the headlight before securing the headlight assembly in place. Be sure to turn the lights and ignition back off.
8. Align the three guide pins to their seats and push the assembly back into them gently until they snap into place. Replace the retaining brackets by pushing them downward to lock into place. Replace shroud, if applicable. Remove the tools and old bulb and close the hood. Post comments for further help or information......

Good Luck!!

Hello streets54, my name is JShreader. Thank you for choosing fixya.com.

First, you have to remove the Upper Radiator Grille. Behind the Headlamp at the top of the Front Bumper, access the lower inside hidden Headlamp Bolt. Only loosen the Bolt. DO NOT REMOVE.

I have a replacement headlight assembly and was wondering how many bolts hold that on?


There are only 3 bolts and a few tabs. Here's how to remove it.t is not necessary to remove the entire grill, just the chrome trim piece that extends across both head lights. Use a small flat screwdriver and delicately pry the trim piece towards you. It is held in place by several small plastic tabs that are located across the entire back side of the trim piece. Be VERY careful in doing this as the chrome piece is very brittle & easily broken or damaged. Once you have the trim removed, you will need to remove 3 bolts that retain the headlight assembly and one press-in tab. The bolts have 10mm heads. Two are located on the top of the assembly, one on the lower corner. After removing the 3 bolts, pull the headlight forward to dislodge the lower retaining tab which is on the opposite side of the headlight housing from the lower bolt toward the rear of the housing. Once you have the assembly out, accessing the bulb is simple!
This is not the easiest job to do, so it is a good idea to take painter's tape & protect the paint on the bumper & fender as well as the clear, Lexan part of the headlight assembly.
Take your time, be careful, & you will get it right the first time!

How to replace headllight lamp


I know your frustration! I cannot believe the complexity of changing the headlights. Chevy has tried to make this a dealer item only just to change a headlight bulb. I will try to explain the procedure unfortunately I do not have photos. First you will need to remove the wheel well liner (two bolts and two plastic push pins). Pull the wheel well housing back (you will need to turn the wheel/tire to gain access) and using a 7mm socket remove the plastic support piece that holds the bumper in place (two bolts). Pull the corner of the bumper down until you can locate the bottom bracket of the headlight assembly that is held by a 10mm bolt. Remove it. (Oh did I mention this is a two person job!) Next move to the front of the vehicle (hood up) and remove all the 10mm bolts holding the upper part of the grill (I think there are eight of them). Now remove the obvious top two bolts on the headlight assembly! With two people - one to work the headlight assembly and one to push down the bumper and pull out on the grill assemble, slowly and carefully pull the headlight assembly straight forward. You will need to be mindfully of the small tabs on the headlight assembly that like to get caught on bumper/grill. If you are just replacing the bulb, you should be able to move the headlight assemble far enough forward to gain access to the bulbs without totally removing the headlight assembly. What a ***** job! SHAME on GM.
