This can be difficult on some cars you almost have to take it to the dealer. all i can say is you may have to disassemble things to gain access. maybe a battery of fluid bottle or even the headlight may have to have bolts removed. Once you gain access the connector just pulls off and the bulb should turn counter clockwise the come out. on some there is a ring that you turn andremove then pull the bulb out. good luck

Changing low beam bulb


depending on which side it is either the battery box asembly or the air cleaner assembly has to be removed to get to the wire keeper that holds the headlight bulb assembly in the rear of the headlight housing. then release the wire keeper and the bulb assembly comes out of the rear of the headlight housing and you can change the bulb. do not touch the glass part of the new bulb assembly, only handle the metal part of the new bulb assembly.

HOW TO CHANGE THE HEADLIGHTS ON MY 98 CROWN VIC


hello;
if it is a plastic headlight housing you can change just the bulbs lift the hood up and look behind the headlight housing for the access area. unplug the connector and turn the plastic ring off 1/4 turn to the left, then pull the bulb out of socket area. reverse going back together.
if no access panel it may have 2 plastic clips on top of headlight housings pull up on them about 1/2 way and entire headlight housing comes off to gain access for the first part of my notes.
good luck steve

How to change a headlight bulb


The headlight is a one piece housing. There are two pins on the top of the hood, they are generally on each end. lift the two pins up, and the housing will pull out with a little wiggling and by pulling the end closest center of the car out first. The bulbs will be easy to change from behind. Unplug the wire to he bulb you want to change, and some have a clip that hold the bulb in, others you just need to turn slightly and pull out. Insert new bulb and entire housing in reverse order. Replace the pins, from the top that hold entire housing in place, and done.

Hope this helps,

I'm having a hard time replacing the driver side headlight. Am I overthinking this?


Why are you trying to change the headlight? Is it broken?
If you are trying to change the bulb, because it is burned out, that is done from the rear of the housing. You have to exercise a bit of care getting the old bulb out and putting the new one in, but is it not difficult. If you are removing the right-side (from the driver's position) bulb, remove the battery (make sure you have your radio anti-theft code if you have one of those radios). Reach behind the headlight assembly, grasp the bulb holder retaining collar, turn it counterclockwise, then pull out the bulb/holder assembly. To remove the bulb from the holder, simply pull it straight out of the holder. Reverse procedure to lock the holder into place.
Removing the headlight housing is somewhat more involved. There are five bolts that hold it in place.

How to change headlights on 2004 ram1500


If you are replacing the headlight bulbs, rotate the bulb retaining lock ring counter-clockwise, pull retainer out of headlight housing and disconnect electrical connector. On the drivers side, you have to remove the fuse and relay box screws and move the box to the side to access the headlight bulb. If you are replacing the headlight housings, there is a push pin and 2 screws on the inside, behind the hood and one screw on the outside at the bottom. Remove these and pull the housing out enough to remove the bulb retainers.

Headlight change


Bulb should come out of back of headlamp housing. May need to remove battery if bad bulb is on that side.

Replace headlight bulb


Actually there are two little black tabs on top of each headlight housing and you simply have to pull them up to release the whole headlamp.

Then follow the rest of emissionwiz's solution.

Changed passenger side headlight bulb, now unable to adjust or align head lights


Changing the bulb should not have affected the housing adjustments.

The bulb is just inserted into the headlight housing. The adjustments on the headlight housing is what adjusts the alignment of the headlights.

Did you maybe not get the bulb not seated correctly in the socket? Or didn't get the socket not seated correctly into the housing?
