Generally the low beams or high beams for that matter are a bulb that connects to a socket that is held in place by a ring or collar that is rotated to release from behind the glass and plastic headlamp assembly. Open the hood to access it, generally.
May have to remove a shroud or plastic paneling to get to it.

If you get your bulbs from the parts store, looking at the base can give you a clue as to how to replace it on the car. Make sure the O-ring seats properly and do not handle the bulb without gloves or shortly after turning off the lights (removing old bulb).

2001 Cadillac DTS. Left low beam headlight is not working. Have tried replacing bulb, relay and fuse. What else could it be?

Do you have a meter or test light so I can walk you through some diagnostics? If not try swaping the high and low beam relays. The relay may click when activated but that doesn't mean that the contacts are good inside the relay.

It is much easier to swap the relay if you don't have any test equipment. Sometimes the low beam relay is bad internally and replacing it solves the problem.

I need to replace low beam head light lamp, right side. 2002 dts

Pop the hood, remove the plastic cover over the radiator, remove 3 screws holding headlight assembly, yank forward, remove plastic plate on the back of the assembly, carefully twist and remove old bulb, replace new one the same way. Remember to change both headlights (even if the other one still works!) Changing only one will cause the older one to burn out quickly and besides, you'll have different brightness levels. Hope that helps.

How to replace low beam on 2001 cadilliac deville

There are details in the owner's manual. You have to remove (3) 1/2 inch screws with a socket wrench, one requires a 6 inch extension, push out 3 plastic locks, then pull the headlight out from the front. Then you can reach the electrical connection, remove that, and then twist and remove/replace the low beam (lower bulb).

Headlights need adjusting up on a 1990 Cadillac Deville.

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

How to change front headlight lowbeam.

Pretty straight forward. Open hood. Pull up on plastic cover over the headlight your going to fix. Low beam is the outside bulb. Rotate bulb counter clockwise ~1/4 turn and pull out. Reverse procedure to replace. Nuttin' to it!! Make sure that the old bulb comes out with an o-ring at the base. I usually have to remove it manualy. The new bulbs have new o-rings attatched.
