The liner is much more durable that it appears. You should be able to fold the liner back enough to unscrew the three bolts holding the tail light unit.

How to replace the side marker/position light bulb on the driver side? I can't even get to it because i can't get the light housing off!

The Headlight Assembly is not difficult to remove but you do need to be careful NOT to pull on the Headlight Assembly and break the clips

1. Open the S60's hood and locate the pin that is behind the headlight assembly of the bulb that needs replacement. The pin has a handle on the top. Pull the pin straight out of the headlight assembly.

  • 2. Push on the back of the headlight assembly until it comes out the front of the S60. There is an electrical connection on the back of the assembly; unplug the connection.

  • 3. Press on both clamp on the assembly. The clamps are on either side. Push them in together so that the cover releases.

  • 4 Uncover the bulb by pulling on the small plastic cover that covers each bulb. Push the visible wire aside. Pull the bulb straight out.

  • 5 Push a new bulb in and push the metal wire back over it to secure the bulb in the assembly. Push the covers back on.

  • 6. Reconnect the electrical harness to the assembly and push the assembly back into place. Push the retaining pin all the way back down into place.

    How do I change my headlight?

    On 97 and up Oldsmobile Silhouette, Pontiac Montana, Pontiac Transport, and Chevy Venture Van,

    • When you open the hood and look at the headlight assembly. At the top between the turn signal and headlight there is a black plastic wing nut. Unscrew that wing nut to remove the side marker light. After removing that nut persuade the side marker light to slide forward. That's the only thing that locks it in place. Untwist the socket to replace the turn signal bulb. Since that is out now...There are two more wing nuts just like the first one that hold the headlight assembly in place on top of the radiator support. (The black plastic piece the headlight is mounted to) Remove these two wing nuts and lift up on the whole assembly. Those are the only things that actually lock it into place. Once you slide it up off the studs the wing nuts were on. Unplug the plug from the back of the light (use a flat screwdriver to lift the tab a little). Twist the round plastic ring that holds the bulb in. The bulb should pull out now. Don't touch the new bulb with your fingers as it is a halogen bulb and the oil on your fingers will cause a hot spot on it, causing it to fail SOON. If you happen to touch the glass part of the headlight bulb, clean it with rubbing alcohol. Reverse the steps...go eat dinner.
    If this pertained to your vehicle and helped in any way please take the time to rate, as I took the time to write it. Thank you.

    Drivers side headlight bulb replacement

    1. Open the hood to the 1999 Dodge Stratus.

    2. Locate the two headlight lens assembly retaining screws at the top of each side of the assembly.
    3. Remove each screw with the ratchet and a suitable socket.
    4. Place the screwdriver behind the lens assembly to assist in prying out the guide pins that secure and align the headlight assembly. Hold the lens assembly from the outside edge (marker light/directional light section) first and pry from behind with the screwdriver to unseat the guide pins. Pry from the inside end of the lens assembly to unseat the other guide pin.
    5. Pull the lens assembly out far enough to reach behind it and disconnect the headlight bulb wire harness from the back of the bulb. Or simply remove the bulb by twisting the harness and retaining ring counterclockwise and remove it as an assembly.
    6. Turn the marker light/directional light socket and wire counterclockwise to remove it from the headlight lens assembly.
    7. Remove the assembly from the front of the Stratus.

    How to change the amber side marker light bulb

    This is not a solution, other than "Take it to the shop", but for our 2006 Montego, the shop is saying they have to take the bumper off to get at the marker light. I don't think that's a great design idea.

    Replace headlights bulbs

    Lift hood, disconnect connector going to back of light fixture. There is a clip holding the connector onto the light that will have to be lifted while pulling connector off. There will be a retaining ring around were you pulled the connector turn it counter clockwise. This is what holds the builb into place. Pull bulb from fixture. Install in reverse, be careful not to touch the glass part of the new bulb with your fingers. This will shorten the life of the bulb. Good luck....
