Just a new headlight. I believe you can get to it from the inside. Open hood and see what you need to do

How to change the headlight

Open the hood and look on the back of the headlight fixture for a large plastic nut... This is the retaining ring that holds your headlight bulb in the fixture.
If by ' problem with my headlight shining' you mean your headlight no longer works , you can use the above to replace the bulb and that should solve the issue.
HOWEVER , if by ' problem with my headlight shining' you mean that the light is not aimed properly , you will need different instruction on how to solve the problem.

How to change a headlight bulb in a saturn aura?

Access to change the headlamp bulbs is through the wheel well. The recommended method is to remove the front tire and then the plastic inner fender liner. Once removed, you'll have easy (more or less) access to the rear of the headlamp housing.

I need to change my headlight fixture

put the hood up and look through the small holes in the plastic cover that runs over top of the headlight assemblies and radiator. There is 2 metal tabs holding each light fixture. They dont need to come all the way out just pull them up about an inch. This releases the entire light fixture to pull straight out

Changing headlights

Suggest changing the clip fastener, or failing that, find some adaptation.

Good luck, and remember rated this help.

How to change a headlight bulb on a 1999 dodge avenger?

You have to open the hood and go at it from behind the bulb. look behind the light fixture set up and you will see where the light bulb goes. Simply twist off and pull out. the old light bulb will com out also.

Need to clean the inside of the headlight fixture

How did the inside get scratched? Never seen it before. You can resurface the outside of lights with the 3M sanding kit. About $400 for the kit or find a shop that does around $130 for the pair

How do i remove the passenger side head light ?

heres how you go about removing the headlight and replacing bulbs:

you will need a 7-point star screwdriver (6+ inches)

1) unscrew the two screws on the tabs above the headlight fixture (if one is missing its not a big deal)

2) unscrew the screw on the bottom of the light fixture. It will be on the inside bottom of the light (towards the grille).

3) For the driver side: unscrew the screw that is slightly infront of the power steering reservoir (if its stuck you may need a wrench to get some movement). This screw only needs to be loosened, don't unscrew it all the way.

For the passenger side: unhook the left part of the air filter (don't worry, it pops in and out easily) there should be a screw towards the hole for the air filter on the upper left of the light, loosen it.

4) Slide the headlight fixture out of the car and undo the little metal clips over the covers. take off which ever cover holds the old bulb and replace it witht he new one. BE CAREFUL! DON;T TOUCH THE BULB WITH YOUR FINGERS, THE OIL MAY CAUSE THEM TO EXPLODE

And on the off chance you make the same mistake as me and drop the screwdrier into the engine block, park your car up on a curb and get it from below.

hope this helps!

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.
