Act like you are going to turn on the headlights while doing so push in on the switch and it should now be able to be pulled out...look at the wires and make sure none of them are loose, verify contacts are still hitting the actual inside of the switch....verify no fuses are blown and check the contacts in the wiring harness at the headlight.

SOURCE: Driver side headlight bulbs burned out on 2003 VW Golf

There is a light cover in front of the battery... take this off and then look for the metal clamps holding the light housing in.  (I say clamps, but they're more like glorified paper clips on either side of the fixture.)  Press in on each side, pushing the clamps towards each other and pull the fixture out.

SOURCE: 2001 subaru outback headlight not working

chapmnfarm: your head lights use a "2" fuse system.
one for the left and one for the right.
The fuse box you are looking for is under the hood on the passenger's side. It is a black box roughly 8 inches long and 4-5 inches wide. When you remove the cover, you will see fuses and relays. What you are looking for is the section in the box which has a cluster of 7 fuses. 3 in one row and 4 in the other. On the outer parameter are two relays. The fuses you are interested in are located in the row of 4 fuses, with the two closest to the "L" shaped part of the box. Both of those should be 15 amp fuses.
The fuse below those should be a 20 amp which is the lighting switch and the one below it is a 15 amp which is for the interior lights and the clock.
Check your harness grounds in the engine compartment near the area you have the problem. There are ground wires which come out of the harness on both sides of the core support. The wires are black in color and have "EYES" crimped onto the ends of the wires. Both of them will probably be located about 4-6 inches below the upper tie bar on each side of the radiator. Odds are that the eyes will be large enough to pass a 6mm bolt through.
I hope what I have given you will resolve your problem. Lem me know,,good luck>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

The most common fault is ground use a test light at the plug it should show you what is missing. Most garages should be able to hande it in about an hour.

SOURCE: How do you replace a Drivers side headlight bulb 2006 kia spectra

Helps to remove the battery, but small ahbds can do it.

Directly behind the lens is a big round cap ... twist it off. The bulb is held in place with a spring that locks in to a notch in the holder. When handling the new bulb, don't touch the glass. The oil from your skin will cause it to shatter when turned on.

Driver's side high beam not working only passenger side bulbs Ok plus front fogs not working 03 renault clio


Could be a fuse ...or it is possible the bulbs are gone.or the wiring loom has been damaged.first place to check is the fusebox.then swap the working bulb into non working side to rule out any wiring faults.if new bulbs keep blowing then it points to a short in wiring or faulty switch which can cause power surges.get back to me if you have a sunroof and water seepage around the courtesy light as clios get this known problem which could be related.

How do you change a light bulb on the the 95 eagle summit driver side


To replace the right headlight bulb, unbolt the battery hold downs,take off the the positive and negative battery cables, now, lift the battery out of the way. The bulb is held in by a plastic ring. Unscrew the ring (1/3 turn) and wiggle the bulb out of the headlight housing. Now you can get a good enough grip on the bulb to separate it from the three wire plug attaching it to the harness. Take your new bulb out of the package and carefully place it into the headlight housing (BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE GLASS OF THE BULB WITH YOUR FINGERS). This will shorten the life of the bulb . Clean it off with a clean drying alcohol. Take the plastic ring and use it to secure the bulb in the headlight housing. Now plug the harness onto the bulb and test that the bulb is working properly (use jumper cables from the battery to the cables. If all is working correctly reinstall the battery in reverse order.

How to change a headlight bulb in a saturn aura?


Access to change the headlamp bulbs is through the wheel well. The recommended method is to remove the front tire and then the plastic inner fender liner. Once removed, you'll have easy (more or less) access to the rear of the headlamp housing.

How do you remove the head lamp assembly on a 1993


1. Make sure headlamp is off and open hood.
2. Taurus model years 1990-1999: you must remove the whole headlamp to replace the bulb. Not a horrible task. Just annoying.
3. Facing the driver's side headlamp, and looking at the headlamp itself, at clock positions 8, 11 and 1 are the headlight housing screws. They all look the same. Using a 10mm socket wrench, remove these 3 screws and set them aside.
4. Just to the right of the "11 o'clock" housing screw is a bolt (same hexagonal 10mm sized top as the housing screws). This just needs a few turns to loosen it.
5. Gently pull the whole headlight forward. Now you can get at the bulb.
6. Disconnect the electrical connector from the bulb. Now the headlamp is free to work with. Remove the bulb, replace with a new bulb, make sure the bulb housing cylinder is in place and reconnect the electical.
7. Place headlamp back into position. Line up screw holes. Tighten the bolt. Replace housing screws and tighten.
8. Passenger side headlamp is mirror image of driver's side. Screws at 11, 1 and 4 o'clock positions. Bolt should be to the left of the "1 o'clock" housing screw.

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 repain


if this is the kind im thinking of, the spring clip you released holds the bulb into the housing. there should be tabs on the bulb which match the housing. bulb has to be in sraight and can be resecured by folding spring clip over bulb. you should see how it clips on to housing. then can reconnect the wire connector. this can be tricky, be patient and make sure the bulb itself is clean. good luck
