SOURCE: trying to replace a front headlight bulb on 2001 acura 3.2 TL

Are you talking about the retaining spring that holds the bulb in?

If so just pull the metal spring toward you and away from bulb. It may need a little jiggly but it will come out.

Do not test the headlight until you have the unit reassembled.

Dont touch the bulb glass with your bare hand either. It can cause the bulb to blow when you turn the light on.

SOURCE: trying to replace a front headlight bulb on 2001 acura 3.2 TL

Look for the end of the wire retainer clip. Unhook it and lift it up. Remember not to touch the bulb. But if you do, just clean it with a bit of alcohol.

btw - Here's a bit of info from a previous post of mine...
The low beams consist of three parts. The bulb, inverter/ballast and the ignitor. The bulbs usually start to loose their color long before they burn out. The inverters/ballasts either go out after a while or take a while to start up.

Before you spend money on a new bulb, try swapping it with the one on the other side. You'll need a security torx screwdriver to get the covers off of the back of the lights. Don't touch the glass bulbs. If you do, just clean them with a bit of alcohol.

If the problem stays on that side, try swapping the ignitors. They're mounted inside the black covers.

If the problem is still on that side you've got a bad inverter. They're mounted on the bottom of the headlight assembly. You'll need to remove the front bumper and remove the headlight assembly to get to it. (I recommend you take pictures as you remove things so can put them back together correctly.)

SOURCE: 97 acura CL ABS light goes on

The ABS light can be on for different reason.
sometimes a bad speed sensor on one of the wheels can trigger the ABS light.
The ABS module, or the entire braking sytem may be faulty, to find out there is need to test the ECU/ABS modules usinga code reader, and to inspect the braking system.

You open the glove box and you will see two black plastic pieces toward the top on either side of the glove box. This is what is holding the glove box up. Get a screw drive and pop these off. the glove box will fall down. Then you will see a white plastic box this is where your filters it and pull both out and replace

SOURCE: 97 Acura cl abs light on? What does this mean and

This indicates a problem with the anti-lock brake system, make sure fluid levels are correct, but it is likely that a sensor at one of the wheels has disconnected, causing the light to go on. If you have driven over road debris, snow, ice, etc. something may have damaged a sensor at one of the wheels. Jack up the car and support it to safely go underneath to inspect all 4 wheels at the back sides for damage.

02 Pontiac Aztek front passenger brake line to abs

Clean the surface of the ABS where the brake lines attach.Some are stamped beside each line connection with LF ,RF, RR, LR, master cyl input front, master cyl input rear if yours is a stand alone unit.Otherwise you will have to follow the line back from your RF wheel to the ABS unit to determine which connection is for the RF.

Brakes only working on one side

generally this means the pins need lubed up. however, I ran into this problem with another vehicle. Make sure that the bleeding proceedure is right. Not all vehicles are rr, lr, rf, lf. Also make sure you bleed the master. The final result of the vehicle I was working on was replacing the master, bleeding lr, rf, rr, lf.

Had a broken line repaired and have bleed all the brakes rr,lr rf.lf and the master cylinder pedal stiffens when the car is off when running still travels to the floor barely any braking

i think you still have air in the brake the bleeder screws one at a time and let it gravity bleed on its own.rr,lr,rf,lf.with a broken line it takes a while to get all the air can be frustrating some times.

I can't get brakes on my 2001 dakota ,the pedal goes right to the floor with little brakes. I've changed the master cly. and no difference. I've bled the system.there is something wrong with the front...

did you bleed the master cyl. before or during installation? bleed brakes in proper order?RR LR RF LF? does it have a power booster between master cyl.& firewall?check for vacuum to booster.when ABS isn't working you should still have brakes.suspect power booster diaphram.

New front brake pads installed. Brake pedal pressure feels fine but will occasionally drop and ABS will engage.

You may have air in the brake system, bleed all 4 wheels in this order: RR,LR,LF,RF, check the brake fluid often when bleeding, do not let the master cylinder run out of fluid, if this doesn't cure the issue then your master cylinder maybe going out.
