Chances are you figured this one out by now, but just in case, here goes. To replace the drivers side light, first start the car and turn the wheel all the way to the right so you can access inside the wheel well. Next, use a plastic putty knife (or something that won't scratch the paint) and pry the black wheel well guard out of the **** that holds it into the fender. Your doing this so you can get your arm behind the headlight from the wheel well. Next, open the hood and remove the phillips head push screw that secures the drivers front turn signal to the headlight. Now comes the tricky part.. If you look at your new headlight, theres a female bayonette style receiver on the left side. This is where the turn signal locks in to the headlight. If you pry back the wheel well guard and look at the back of your headlight (use a flashlight) you will see the same bayonette push fit connector. You will need to use a flat head screwdriver to pry it open a bit on the headlight in the car (not the new one). Next you will reach into the fender well and push the turn signal assy forward. It takes some pressure for it to move but when it does it moves quick. I recommend using some gloves so you don't trash a finger like I did. Once the turn signal comes out you'll have easy access to the remaining screw holding your headlight in place. Once you replace the light, just put the turn signal back and push it in so it locks into the bayonette mount (don't forget to put in the philips push screw). Repeat for the passenger side. NOTE: I marked the garage door with tape so I could align the new headlights to the same spot as the old lights. the new ones were close, but still needed to be tweaked. Good luck! Dan.

2006 Toyota Sequoia - liftgate won't open, but handle not does not appear to be broken. Automatic door unlock is not unlocking the liftgate either. Is there an7y way to open the liftgate from either...


If it's not unlocking, The only way o get it open is pop off the trim piece that goes around the window. On the bottom panel there might be two screws to remove on each side. If not then it will pop off to a point, because there are screws on the bottom you can't access. Pull it back and reach down and find the rods that go to the latch. usualy the one that is horizontal is the one that unlocks the hatch. move it left or right to unlock it, try the handle to see if it opens. If it doesn't reach again and open it from the other rod. Pull up on it. Good luck

I am trying to change a headlight. I can't can not


The headlight assembly (1993 Grand Caravan) is held in place with three plastic "wing nuts" that rotate on the ball-end (front end) of the adjusting screws. One "adjusting screw" (the one on the bottom, inboard side) is not for adjusting, just for mounting. The other two adjusting screws take a torx T15 in the front end of the screw.
Removing the headlight assembly is somewhat of a trick - it seems like it takes a special tool to reach the "wing nut" and turm it 1/4 turn (90 degrees) CLOCKWISE (so the "wings" are vertical). When all three of these mounting "wing nuts" have the wings vertical, the headlight assembly just pulls forward and off these mounting nuts. Place the new assembly back over the "nuts", turn the 3 "wing nuts" another quarter turn, and the new unit is mounted. Probably not even a need to re-adjust the headlights, but you should check.
The PROBLEM, is that it appears to take a special tool to reach and turn these wing nuts without breaking them (yes, the old ones get brittle). I tried a socket (did not work), and then long needle-nose pliers (broke one wing nut), then a 1/2" open-end wrench (which at least worked). However, pushing the new assembly back over the wing nuts, I broke another wing nut. So, I broke 2 of the 6, and one was broken when I started.
Now I need to find replacements for these "wing nuts" ... any ideas where to get them?
Of course I can use some washers, some nuts to fit the fine-threaded adjustment screw, and some sort of bushing (maybe cut a short piece of rubber tubing to fit over the adjustment screw). Place double nuts (second nut to lock the first in place) and a washer, then the bushing onto the adjusting screw, then the headlamp assembly onto the bushing, then add another washer, and two more nuts (not too tight) to lock it onto the adjusting screw (which must still be free to rotate). Repeat for each of the 6 mounting points. I have not tried this yet, but ... it should work.

Fabricate a tool to turn the "wing nuts" using a piece of 3/8 inch ID tubing which you file or cut 1/8 inch by 1/8 inch notches on each side of a diameter line.

Having trouble accessing headlight assembly to change a burned out bulb removed 5 screws and clips but still seems to be held on place


You shouldn't have to remove any screws. Look behind the headlight assembly and you will see a socket that you push in, turn and it should come out so you can replace this little light bulb, not the whole assembly.

Good Luck

Need to change left front turn single whole ***. come out?


  1. Go to the front of the car and open the hood. Locate the two screws that mount the headlight assembly to the front of the vehicle. The screws are on top of the assembly at both ends. Use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the screws. Pull the headlight assembly straight off of the Intrepid.
  2. Locate the turn signal electrical connector at the outer side of the headlight assembly. There is a thick wire coming out of it. Turn the electrical bulb socket counterclockwise to take it out of the headlight assembly.
  3. Pull the turn signal bulb straight out of the electrical socket.
  4. Push in a new turn signal bulb. Reinstall the electrical socket with the new bulb in it to the headlight assembly. Turn the socket clockwise until it is tight. Push the headlight assembly back in place on the car and use and screwdriver to put the mounting screws back in.

Remove driver side headlight assy to replace side marker light


There are two screws holding the headlight in. The screws are just above the headlight. After removing the screws you'll need to carefully pull straight out on the headlight assembly. There's a ball/socket type joint just behind the headlight. This joint needs separated for the assembly to come all the way ouit. Reaching and replacing the side light bulb requires a bit of arm twisting.
Reverse the order to re-install the headlight.

Back door latch broke cant open back door where can i buy the part and the name of the part


I just bought the part last week for 61.76 from the dealership. It takes about two hours to unscrew the strap from the inside, remove trim from the inside starting at the top, sides and bottom. Remove the license plate from the outside of the hatch. Next remove the 8 bolts (10mm)and 3 white plastic tabs that snap on from the large black plate and move to the side (you don't need to disconnect the wires). From here you can reach around the rear window unit and open the door by moving the latch or pulling the cable. You should remove the 4 nuts that hold on the rear window assembly and move the to reach two nuts which holds the center portion of the trim piece you are trying to remove. There should be a plastic piece covering the cable and latch, it just pops off by pulling it straight out. There are three plastic tabs in the corners and one screw (lock for the hatch) that holds on the license plate assembly to the rear hatch along with two white plastic tabs which are located at the bottom two holes for license plate. These plastic tabs come in from the front. Use pliers to squeeze the together and push. You will need to disconnect the license plate lamp wire connector from the left side. The license plate assembly should drop away. Two screws hold on the latch, remove and replace and reverse proceedure.

How do I replace the headlight assembly on a 2006 sebring?


  1. Remove the front bumper cover
  2. Remove the upper headlight housing mounting bolt and pushpin
  3. Remove the lower headlight housing mounting bolts
  4. Pull out the headlight housing assembly and disconnect the electrical connector.
Its pretty easy. Just raise the hood, see the two silver 8mm cap screws on top of the cross member that supports the radiator and fan assembly. Two screws on each side above the headlight housings. The outer screw is right next to the corner of the fender when the hood is raised. Remove the two screws, then the headlight assembly is loose. Just gently pull the headlight assembly forward enought to see the three lamp socket holders on the back side of the headlight assembly. From the outside corner to the inside are first, the parking turn signal, then the low beam lamp and finally the last, the high beam lamp. To remove the lamp socket, push the small plastic locking tab and turn the socket assemby counter clockwise about a half turn and remove the lamp. Now you can replace the lamp and install it back the same way you took it out. Don't touch the new lamp glass with your bare fingers. Oil from you skin will absorb into the glass causing the glass to turn dark and shorten the lamp life.

Cant find the fan relay for 2002 jeep cherokee


It lives under the right headlamp assembly. You can remove the front fascia and headlamp bracket to gain access, or you can just remove the right headlamp and use a hole saw to drill a hole in the bracket assembly. It is made of a hard plastic material and the relay is bolted to the fender area underneath.
