    Sorry for the "test" post, here's my real answer (I did this the other night):

    You have to remove the black plastic cover that goes around the spare tire area. The black plastic pins holding it in place are easily to removed by simply pushing the center in with a screwdriver. This loosens these and you can then remove them.

    At this point the back of the headlamp is accessible. You can unplug the lamp and remove the protective plastic grommet. The bulb fixture itself is held in place by a clip that is held in place by one screw. If you are able to work in that tight of an area (like me) you can remove the entire light fixture. The problem with this is that to do this you have to remove the entire front bumper. I didn't have a screwdriver short enough that gave me enough leverage to unscrew that one screw so I removed the front bumper. There are two bolts holding the fixture on top and a bolt and a screw holding it in underneath the bumper. Hope this helps. The light is an "H7" bulb and cost me $14.99 at AutoZone.

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!!!
