Most vehicles are equipped with Halogen bulbs that are small bulbs that are replaced from under the hood behind the headlight bezel assembly.
They have a twist turn method generally to remove/replace hiowever they cannot have your hand come in contact with the glass bulb as the oils on your skin will in fact reduce the halogen bulbs life as it gets extremely hot burning the oil off the lense shortening the bulbs existence.
Remember to replace the bulb with the proper bulb as you may find two or three different applications of halogen bulbs for the same vehicle, they all have a purpose, they go from bright to brighter to brighter each increase in candle power also increases in price of the bulb, a typical standard priced Halogen is approximately $9.95 and up.

Low beam headlight - passenger side - on my 2006 Buick Lacrosse does not work. I've tried a new bulb - no help. The fuse - underhood fuse box - for the low beam is good. There is no voltage to that fuse...


From Info I have looked at I believe under hood micro switch relay 35 is for low beam and 34 is for high beam. It also looks like you have a different fuse for each light. The relay are for both low beam or both high beams. each headlight has its own fuse. I believe #4 fuse under hood is for passenger side low beam. fuses 1-4 under hood are for the four headlights as I understand the info I have seen.

Have a 2005 Buick Rainier no low beam light


If it has a headlight relay,it is probably bad(There's a possibility of a bad ground which is common to both headlights). If not that,it must be the multi-switch that has the turn-signal/headlight/dimming control on it.don-ohio (:^)

Headlamp remove & replace


If it is just burnt out , you do not have to remove or replace the whole lamp , just the small bulb inside of it. They are usually easily accessable from inside the engine compartment , and just come out of the back of the headlight by 1/4 turn.

Replacing headlight bulb. How to get the grill out.


For agrivation go to walmart and have an oil change and ask them to change the headlight bulbs, they do NOT CHARGE EXTRA labor charges.

Otherwise, gently apply pulling pressure on the front grill every few inches to get the grill unhooked on the top and bottom nearest the headlight assembly. Then have someone hold the grill assembly out while you pull out the headlight assembly to access the rear of it to remove the hold down nut to remove the bulb's. Reverse removal procedure, which is actually harder to put the headlight assembly back into place then it is to remove.

Headlights of my 2005 buick rainer not working intermittently


Switch relay #45 with relay #46 next time your low beams go out, do you have lights again? If so, get a new relay.

How do remove headlight assembly on 2005 Buick LaCrosse to replace lighe bulb


I just changed the low beam bulb in a '05 Buick LaCrosse and found it really rather easy after researching it. I found no reason to remove the grill and the bumper cover, BUT you do have to remove the top 4 fastners that hold the grill assy to the radiator support, then you can work the headlight assy forward enough to work it out of the socket and turn it down so you can get to the bulb pockets on the back side. NO NEED to remove it all, just loosen it and gentley pry things forward enough to get the light assy out. ALSO> My supplier said his Wagner lighting book called for a 9006 bulb, but the car I worked took a H11. About 4x the money over a plain ol 9006 bulb but it might save someone picking up the wrong bulb. I hope this helps someone else out....Best of luck to you all
