Do you need to replace the LIGHT or the LENS?

The headlight is not too much trouble, go to your local auto parts store and get the correct light replacement.

With power off, open the hood, (usually you do not need to isolate the battery, but I am always advocating safety)

Go to the light you need to replace, the LAMP is configured with a plug in the back of it, unplug the lamp from the car's electrical system.

Next, press in and twist counter clockwise to release the old lamp from the socket.
DONT NOT TOUCH THE NEW LAMP GLASS WITH YOUR FINGERS.
Your finger (everyone elses too) have iol residue on them that will shatter the glass when it gets hot..

Use rubber gloves or a paper towel, and replace the lamp unsing the exact reverse of the removal procedure.

Reconnect the electrical plug, reconnect the battery, and test the lamp.

If it is properly in the socket, you should not have to re-aim it.

If you need to change the LENS, please get the Haynes or Chilton manual, it gives much better directions than I could here.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

1994 Lexus LS 400 One headlight is ineffectual dim with yellowish color, replaced bulb, replaced end plug, no effect, what now, please?


The first thing you need to do is check both fuses for the right headlamp. There will be one for the high beam and the low beam. If the fuses are good than we need to check the ground. The ground wire is the red wire with the white tracer. Whith the headlights on use a jumper wire from that wire to the battery ground. If the headlight is know bright than you will need to start tearing into the harness to find out where the wire is bad and/or corroded. It will be somewhere in between the connector and where the wire splices into the ground for the left headlight. Since the left headlight works fine we know that the wiring from that splice to ground is good. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them.

How do you replace the front turn signal on a 2005 Buick Terraza?


Changing front, right turn signal on 2005 Buick Terraza: Open hood; when facing the front of vehicle, the right turn signal is on the passenger side (left). The headlight assembly needs to be removed to easily reach the turn signal. On my vehicle, there is a 10 mm screw on the left side. Remove it. There is L-shaped pin on the right side of the headlight assembly. Swing the pin counter-clockwise (to the left). Pull the pin straight up to remove. The headlight assembly is now loose, but there is a pin snapped in a socket on the back of the assembly that still holds the assembly. Pull the headlight assembly hard and straight to the front of the vehicle. When it snaps loose, the assembly is now held just by the rubber gasket surrounding the assembly. You need to gently work the right side of the gasket out of the grill cowling. The assembly should pull straight out. The wires are long enough to lay the headlight assembly in the engine compartment. Finally, the turn signal is now accessible. Twist the light holder counter-clockwise and pull out the light holder. Change the bulb. Do not punch your man-card for credit until you have successfully reinstalled the headlight assembly. It goes back in a little easier the second time. Once you have put the L-pin in place, the screw back, and successfully tested the lights, you can now punch your man-card.

I give the mechanical engineers and designers a D-minus instead of an F only because I was successful on the first try. No light bulb on anything commonly used by people should be this hard to figure out.

Driver's headlight is dim; wipers only work if headlight is off


Sounds like the jolt from the barrier has caused a bad ground to occur. Look for a bad ground wire around the left headlamp in or around the headlight bucket.
Tighten or replace the bad ground wire. A poor contact will cause the headlight to light dimly.

Ford Ranger 2002, electrical problem


You have a bad ground, look out by the battery for a bunch of black wires screwed to the body of the car, check that they have a clean and tight connection, scrap off any paint under the wires.

The only thing that all of your problems have in common is the light switch and the dash wiring harness. The stereo is linked to the light switch because of it's illumination feature' You need to test the light switch with a test light by probing the wires at it's plug.
