Question about 2001 Jaguar S-Type
The easiest way to replace the bulb is to take out the whole lamp assembly and replace the bulb then place the whole assembly(both left/right lights). This may even require removing the bumper if you dont have the right tools or very small hands.
1. Remove the plastic cover across the top, front area above the headlight assemblies.
2. The first bulb connector you see is the turnsignal lamp assembly; turn it 1/4 turn CCW and pull the bulb/connector assembly out of the way.
3. There is a plastic dust cover that is approx. 4" dia on the back side of the headlight assembly. Turn this 1/4" CCW and lift off and out of the way.
Here's the part that gives people trouble. Hint: Take a small mirror . Slide it down behind the headlight so as to get a good picture of the spring clamp that holds the bulb/connector in place.
4. The spring clamp is bent over to form a tab of sorts. The two ends are placed in metal tabs to act as a hinge or pivot for the clamp. Using a thumb or index finger, press the top corner of the bent portion forward toward you and down at the same time to disengage the clamp from the catch. It really is that simple.
Pull the bulb assembly out and pull the bulb from its holder. Replace bulb and reverse the procedure.
Be patient, look at the bulb assembly and holding clamp with the mirror before you start and read the instructions above. ----------- Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.
