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: need to replace headlight bulb in honda civic 2003

Its easy, look down behind the headlight assembly and where the wires go into the back of the headlight is the bulb. Its been a while, but you just unplug the connector and the bulb is held in by a locking ring or clip, I can't remember which.
The bulb is removed from the rear. Simply remove the bulb and install the new one and reconnect the connector.
Just don't touch the glass on the new bulb, because the oils in skin can create hot spots on the bulb.

SOURCE: trying to replace a front headlight bulb on 2001 acura 3.2 TL

Look for the end of the wire retainer clip. Unhook it and lift it up. Remember not to touch the bulb. But if you do, just clean it with a bit of alcohol.

btw - Here's a bit of info from a previous post of mine...
The low beams consist of three parts. The bulb, inverter/ballast and the ignitor. The bulbs usually start to loose their color long before they burn out. The inverters/ballasts either go out after a while or take a while to start up.

Before you spend money on a new bulb, try swapping it with the one on the other side. You'll need a security torx screwdriver to get the covers off of the back of the lights. Don't touch the glass bulbs. If you do, just clean them with a bit of alcohol.

If the problem stays on that side, try swapping the ignitors. They're mounted inside the black covers.

If the problem is still on that side you've got a bad inverter. They're mounted on the bottom of the headlight assembly. You'll need to remove the front bumper and remove the headlight assembly to get to it. (I recommend you take pictures as you remove things so can put them back together correctly.)

Open hood and remove the radiator site shield and the air delector on top of the headlamp assembly. You will then see 2 clips that you will pull up and then remove the headlamp assembly.

Doesn't sound like the light is the problem. This can be the ballast, aka transformer. Try to interchange the other headlight and see if it duplicates the problem before buying a HID bulb.

I have an Acura 3.2 CL Type S (2001) ... The driver side headlight would work sometimes and sometimes it wouldn't. I took it to Acura and they replaced the bulb ... A month later the same light is doing it...


It is more than likely the headlight igniter based off of the price you were quoted.Ask your Acura dealer for a discount if you are a regular customer. Talk to the service manager.

I have a 2001 Acura 3.2 TL headlight goes on and off


As with Laurenson 538, I have the same problem with my 2001 CL.

Should this problem with the 2001 Acuras be a recall issue? I, too, have replaced the headlight assembly ($1,000 plus). The old one (sealed[?]) had moisture in it... the reported cause of the light burning out. Within a short period, the $1000 replacement had moisture in it and has just burned out again.

Now, at a different Acura agency, I'm told that the bulb needs another $1,000 replacement. When I asked about the warranty, I was advised 90 days was the warranty. When I asked if I was expected to spend $1,000 every 90 days to be able to drive the car, the rep got defensive.
Writing Acura resulted in a big Zero. Before buying a new Acura, one might inquire about the headlights. Since one can't drive without headlights, maybe Acuras should be reserved for daylight driving only! Have a backup car for night driving!

The driver side headlight turns on but after 30 seconds it starts to flicker and turns off


this sounds as though it could be one of 2 things, either the filament in the bulb is just making contact, or the connector to the headlamp is overheating and possibly loosing connection.
