Need to clean front lights lens - how do you take off the lens?


The front headlight "lens" is part of the headlight assembly. If the exterior of the lens is what you need to clean because it is oxidized or pitted, then you have at least 2 options:

1) replace the assembly - you can buy them on the internet for about $70 a pair. There are youtube videos that show how to replace them. It is a job for almost any skill level. Here is one youtube video I watched before replacing my headlights.

2) Buff the lens using one of the headlight polishing kits you can buy at Autozone or Walmart. Kits are about $20. I polished my headlights and they looked great, but re-oxidized quickly.I found replacing them was a better long-term option. There are also youtube videos showing you how to do this.

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 replace the headlight on a 2002 Daewoo Lanos


Hi there, together with providing you the solution to the problem, I also took the liberty of going one step further in giving you steps on how to remove the headlight bulb.

  • Find the hood release handle and activate it, the hood should pop open.
  • Once the hood is popped open locate the hood secondary or safety latch and release it. Then finish opening the hood.
  • Locate and remove mounting clips for any plastic shields that cover the headlight lens mounting screws or clips.
  • Some headlight bulbs can be replaced by simply grasping the bulb socket behind the headlight lens and turn it counter clockwise to remove it. This will expose the headlight bulb.
  • If the headlight bulb socket is not accessible the headlight lens may need to be remove or obstructions behind the bulb removed to gain access to the headlight bulb socket.
  • To remove the headlight lens remove all mounting screws and clips that hold the headlight lens in place.
  • After the headlight housing has been removed from it's mounts, release the headlight bulb from the headlight lens housing (turn counter clockwise) the bulb will then come out of the headlight assembly. Once removed, visually verify that the replacement bulb is exactly the same as the failed bulb before to ensure a proper repair.
  • Clean the headlight lens free from all debris to help maintain the seal from the bulb to the lens. This will keep moisture out of the lens.
  • Install the new headlight bulb by turning the retainer ring or bulb clockwise.
  • Re-install the headlight lens housing and reinstall electrical connector.
  • Re-install plastic covers.
After the job is complete turn the ignition key to the "on" position and activate the headlight switch. Observe the newly replaced headlight bulb to ensure proper operation.

Glad to be of help!!!

The headlight lens on the front right is very dull. How can I remove the lense and clean inside?


I've never seen the problem on the inside of the lens, only on the outside. Auto parts stores sell a kit to clean the lens.

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.
