Unlike some of the older vehicles where the entire lens comes out, these have bulbs that plug into the lens. Reach in between the battery and the grill on the passenger side and there should be a connector, push the connector together and twist it, then the bulb will come out of the housing and you can pop it out of the connector. Installation is the reverse. The same goes for the driver's side it is located between the underhood storage container and the grill.

Need to change passenger side headlight


you might need to move the air filter box to do this.

The bulb and its wiring is on the back of the headlight. Twist the clip to remove it from the headlamp housing, pull the bulb out and replace it, then reinstall the bulb into the housing.

If you need to replace the whole headlight and not just bulb you'll need to remove the grille by unscrewing 4 screws on the top side of the grill Rotate the grill toward the front to release from the clips holding it in place. There are 2 screws on the inboard area of the headlamp. Remove these two screws and the lamp will come out. Now you can replace the lamps or the unit.

How do I replace the front passenger turn signal lamp for a 2002 echo?


Open the hood and directly in the front you will see an opening to get your hand in. Use a light to see where the back of the headlight assembly is. Then you will see two plugs going into the case. The one closest to the middle of the vehicle is your headlight bulb. The one closest to the outside of the vehicle is the signal lamp. All you have to do is just grab the plug and turn it counter clockwise to release it from the headlight assembly. Once out just remove the bulb from the plug and replace with identical number bulb. Push back in and turn clockwise to lock in place. That's all. Good luck and happy motoring!!

How do I change the back turn signal on my 2001 ford taurus


DIY - 5 Minute Turn Signal Bulb Replacement This is very simple to do. First you will need an 8mm socket and wrench to loosen one bolt. Second a good long flat head screwdriver. There are two black metal folded tabs behind the headlight assembly and one 8mm bolt holding it in plae at the center point of the front of the car. Loosen the bolt and remove. Use the screw driver to pull up the metal straps and then slide forward the entire assembly. This will slide easily unless your front bumper has been bumped! That will make it a little difficult to slide if it is out of alignment. If it was never bumped than this should take all of 5 minutes.

Replacing front parking lamp/turn signal/cornering lamp bulbs
  1. Remove headlight / lens assembly per below steps mentioned later

  2. Rotate the bulb socket of the offending bulb counterclockwise and remove from the lamp assembly.

  3. Carefully pull bulb straight out of the socket and push in the new bulb

  4. Install the bulb socket into the headlight assembly by rotating it clockwise

  5. Re-install headlight assembly - hold snugly into place until the brackets line up and retainer pins can be pushed down

To replace headlight bulb:
  1. Make sure headlight switch is turned OFF.

  2. Remove the bolt at the end of the headlamp housing.

  3. Pull the two black tabs with the L shaped bracket toward the back and then up and pull out(Located at the back of the headlamp) to release the headlamp assembly from the vehicle and pull headlamp assembly forward.

  4. Disconnect the electrical connector from the bulb by pulling it.

  5. Remove the bulb socket retaining ring by rotating it counterclockwise.

  6. Remove the bulb from the lamp assembly by pulling straight back.
    Do not twist, as there are alignment slots built into the lamp assembly socket.
    It may take some effort to remove the lamp because it has a rubber o-ring type seal - try a bit of wiggling side-to-side

  7. Insert new bulb into headlight assembly - don't touch the glass - use gloves, paper towel, or similar
    Make sure that the flat surface of the bulb socket is facing upward, and is firmly seated

  8. Re-attach retainer ring by rotating clockwise

  9. Reconnect the electrical harness

  10. Re-install headlight assembly - hold snugly into place until the brackets line up and retainer pins can be pushed down

NOTES
  • Do not touch the glass of the new halogen bulb - the oils in the skin will shorten the life-span of the new bulb, or possibly cause the bulb to explode when first turned on

    If the bulb is accidentally touched, it should be cleaned with rubbing alcohol before being used.
