You don't really remove the Headlight lenses unless you want to remove the front fenders. There are kits sold at most auto parts stores that you use to to clean the headlight lenses.

What is your year--make--model? I'd look up wiring for hazards if I knew which vehicle? Your hazards may work through multifunction switch? As far as one headlamp being dimmer, check voltage and ground compare to other lamp/s.

Maybe the headlamp lens needs cleaning?

How to remove and replace headlight bulbs in a 2008 chevy.HHR


The trick to replacing all new bulbs on cars now it removing the whole lens. There will be a couple of screws holding it in when looking from above in the engine compartment. Once you loosen the screws it is not as if it comes out easily. It will take a little extra oomph to get it out. once out it goes back in very easily. When the lens is out you can access the bulb very easily.

Left headlight is verry poor on light


Well, the easiest thing to do would be to just switch your headlights and see if the right one burns as dim.If it doesnt,then you just need a new bulb.If it does,then you have a ground wire off or touching somewhere by the headlights on the left side probably.Check all your wires going to the lights all the way as far as you can check if so.

How to replace bulb in front bumper turn signal housing 1995 jag xj6


hello,
  • Identify the blown bulb. Note that if a headlight bulb has blown, the dip beam is on the outside and the high beam is on the inside. Turn off the ignition switch and light switches.

  • Open the hood and replace any blown headlight bulbs. Press the plastic spring clips and remove the bulb holder from the assembly. Pull the bulb out of the bulb holder and replace it with a new bulb. It only fits one way. Be sure not to touch the bulb's glass. Replace any parking lights at the same time, they are in the headlamp unit too.

  • Remove the front turn signal light unit in the bumper to change the turn signal bulb. Push gently on the inside edge and insert a blade between the bumper and the lens at the outside edge. Compress the spring and remove the lens. Fit a new lamp by inserting it into the plug. The side marker light is changed using a similar process.

  • Open the trunk to replace the rear fog light, stop light, tail light, reversing light and turn signal light. Remove the rear light cover and turn the bulb holder fastener 90 degrees counter clockwise. Remove the expired bulb, fit a new one and replace the parts, turning the bulb holder clockwise.

  • Thanks..

    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 do you change the front turn signal bulb on a 1994 ranger


    Hi there,

    Here are some few tips to help out. Firstly, remove the screws retaining the headlight and trim assembly. Then carefully rotate the headlight and trim assembly away from the vehicle, rotating the inboard side away from the vehicle. Remove the side marker, parking and turn signal bulbs and sockets from the headlamp and trim assembly. They can be removed by turning them. If you are replacing a lens, remove the retaining screws for the lens to be changed and remove it from the headlight door.

    When removed, install the removed lens assembly. Then, install the bulbs and sockets and install the headlight and trim assembly. Make sure you check the operation of the lights.

    Best of luck...

    Chevrolet Equinox how to change the head light


    Hiya
    IF it's the headlight's light bulb you want to access to pull out old bulb and install new bulb, here it is:
    You know where the 3 bolts that secure the headlight body on the frame, also pull out the 4 black plastic clips that holds the grille-it's located on the top grille brackets (it's close to the top radiator area)
    When you pull out the clips, gently pull the grille away from the top frame, then pull the headlight body away carefully to allow your hand to gain access behind the grille/headlamp body, find the wire that connects to the headlight bulb, use your fingers to feel the plastic 'collar ring' around the socket and twist it counterclockwise (just like unscrewing a lid off the jar) and pull the socket out with the bulb.
    This space is tight for your fingers so it takes patient to get the job done.

    IF it's the ENTIRE headlight body you want to remove it off the equinox (since you mentioned you've removed the 3 screws) there's one more that still holds it down is the black plastic tab that's only accessible inside the fender! So to gain access under the fender, remove the plastic wheelwell liner part located underneath the front-left fender (driver's side) there's a small screw and few plastic clips you'll need to remove it to move the wheelliner liner aside to locate that headlight body's plastic tab on the fender frame, use a plier to 'unlock' the tab out of the hole.
