Open the bonnet, locate a screw on top of the headlight and undo it, locate two screws between the centre grill and headlight and undo them and locate a screw right behind the headlight assembly and loosen it. Now the whole headlight should come out. It wont come all the way out. By unplugging the electrical plug you can take it out completely. Lift up the lock thats hold the rear headlight cover and that will expose the internals of the headlight and then you can change whatever globe you want. First disconnect the wiring plug from the globe and then release the clip holding the globe and replace the globe and make you sure you dont touch the glass part of the new globe which installing. Touching it will shorten the globes life and there is a chance that it might explode inside and create mess. You need to buy H7 type globe for low beam.

SOURCE: burned out headlight/bulb bmw 1991 325i 2dr

It's a bulb replacement. If it's anything similar to my Audi, there is a cover on the back of the headlight housing that you pop off. Then you can reach in, pull the wire connector off the bulb, and unclip a metal retainer over the bulb, and pull the bulb out. Installation of the new one is the reverse. Just be SURE not to touch the glass part of the bulb. Skin oils can cause a halogen bulb to burn very hot and burn out very quickly. If you do touch the glass, wipe it gently but thoroughly on a cotton cloth to clean it off before you install it.

There are not two rods, there are two clips one under fender weild and one right above the light on top of the cover. Pull up on these two clips and pull the light forward a couple of inches and remove the dust cover. You have to take the air filter cover off to be able to reach in and replace the light. It took me about 10 min to figure these out but hope it helps out.

Open hood and remove the radiator site shield and the air delector on top of the headlamp assembly. You will then see 2 clips that you will pull up and then remove the headlamp assembly.

SOURCE: 1996 CAMARO BLOWS HEADLIGHT EVERY 6 MONTHS

ive had 2 camaros and both did this. remove the headlight and take the bulb out of the back of the sealed beam. be careful not to break it as its glued in, but it is possible. just be gentle and patient. replace the bulb with an aftermarket 9006 bulb (hi beams are 9005) and silicone it back into the housing. i haven't had one burn out yet after doing this

SOURCE: 2004 Audi A4 headlight replacement

you have to loosen the whole headlight assembly to open the covers behind the lights to actually get to the bulbs. 4 screws, 2 are on the top of the assembly(phillips screws) the other two are hex and attach the bottom of the assembly to the car. somewhat difficult to see but look behind the assembly and down into the compartment and loosen the screws(they don't fully come out) just enough to pull the assembly out. open the black cover behind he low bean and there is the bulb

You need to replace your headlight on the side it's not working on. If you have ONE bulb on each side that has hi & lo beam, use a HB5 replacement bulb. If your hi and lo beams are separate bulbs, use a HB4 replacement bulb.

Headlight relay traverse


My 2011 Traverse had no LOW BEAMS ( Right and Left Side )
I changed the LOW BEAM RELAY ( a 4 prong relay ) in the fuse / relay box located under the hood on the passenger side. It didn't change the situation. Voltage was good at the relay terminals and I plugged the relay into another GM car and it worked fine. The NEXT place the voltage goes to is the LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS. The easier way to change them on a 2011 Traverse is to go through each wheel well - there is an access port behind the wheel well liner. YouTube has photos and videos on how to take this apart. Don't try to attack the problem from above in the engine compartment, the wheel well is the easier ( notice I said easier not easy ) way to go about it. BOTH of my Low Beam headlamps driver side and passenger side were burned out. I just bought the vehicle ( yeah...I know...who doesn't check the lights before buying a vehicle - right ? ) and at my wits end figured that it is such a pain in the rear to change the bulbs, that the lazy bastards that owned the vehicle just drove with one headlight and THEN the second one went out. If you can hear your low beam relay clicking ( you can feel it too if someone turns the headlights on with the key in the ignition turned to ON ) and you're getting 12 volts or higher at the relay terminals in both places ( the relay coil power and relay output terminals ) then the only thing next is the bulbs themselves. Thank God for small miracles. NOBODY likes an electrical / electronics problem.

Hi, check the low beam relay, relay's for the headlights should be either near the fusebox, or under the engine compartment, if not this may be hi/lo beam switch, hope this helps :)

Headlights-no go


the regular lo beams have a separate fuse and relay if I remember correctly. Check Fuse 3, 4, 5 and 16 in the your junction block in the passenger side kick panel.
