Usually, one has to get the entire headlight assembly to replace the lens.
Is it cracked?
If it is just faded, try some anti-haze polish for headlights. This can save you some money compared to restoring the headlamp by replacing the assembly (which may be available from a salvage yard).

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

CAUTION
Halogen bulbs contain gas which is under
pressure. Handling the bulbs incorrectly could cause it to shatter into flying
glass fragments. Do NOT leave the light switch ON. Always allow the bulb to cool
before removal. Handle the bulb only by the base; avoid touching the glass
itself. Whenever handling a halogen bulb, ALWAYS follow these precautions:


  • Turn the headlight switch OFF and allow the bulb to cool before
    changing it. Leave the switch OFF until the change is complete.
  • ALWAYS wear eye protection when changing a halogen bulb.
  • Handle the bulb only by its base. Avoid touching the glass.
  • DO NOT drop or scratch the bulb.
  • Keep dirt and moisture away from the bulb.
  • Place the used bulb in the new bulb's package and dispose of it properly.

96 Dodge Avenger...replacing headlights!!


you have to unscrew the round white houseing on the back of the head light assembly and then reach inside the headlight and pull the clip out then the bulb and wires come right out i know its a pain in the a#@ to get your hand in there but your only other choice is take the whole headlight assembly out and that is an even bigger project also the clip holding it in is kinda like a U clip and the bottom is attached so dont pull it out completly it kinda justs pivits itself out of your way
